Restaurants and local access to grocery store very nearby, with good bus service but also walkable. I had to return by bus one night after 11 p.m. and felt very safe walking from bus stop to apartment. Certainly will look to stay again. One small drawback for me was how rainy Geneva was for the entire stay!

It has an interesting and relaxing style with a great communal living area for dining or sitting around the fabulous glass surround stove which can open out into an open fire. There are two separate bedrooms and a characterful loft area which has three double beds and, if required, a baby's cot. It is well equipped (although we made the mistake of using several electrical machines together which caused problems. The owner, who we could always contact, guided us on how to sort ourselves out). It is in a great location near Les Rousses and many of the ski slopes, and with friendly neighbours who helped us when our cars got stuck under the snow. A very special holiday. Anna H
