Traditional charming apartment in a great location above one of the only 2 24/7 patisseries in Geneva. Just off the river & close to beautiful Carouge. 10 mins to the city centre by tram. Top floor "traversant" (breeze throughout the apartment when windows are open) with balcony, kitchen & good sized open plan living/dining room.
Photos are slightly out of date - will send new ones on request.
The apartment is a beautiful "traversant" (stretches from one side of the building through to the other) space with high ceilings and traditional features such as old brass door handles, bright french-style windows and parquet flooring. Located on the 5th floor, the apartment can be easily accessed by either the stairs or elevator. There is barely any noise from traffic or neighbours, although being on the top floor we are always mindful to keep our noise levels down.
There is a tram stop located right outside the building that takes you to Geneva city centre in 10 minutes or the Cornavin train station in 15 mins. Trains run regularly from the Cornavin train station to the airport and take approximately 10 minutes.
The kitchen has a fridge-freezer, a washing machine (with detergent), microwave, oven with 4x hobs, kitchen table + 2 chairs, multiple coffee machines. Fully equipped with cutlery, pots, pans, tea, coffee and cleaning equipment for use during your stay. There is also an iron + board, drying rack for clothes (no dryer in the apartment but there are a number of laundromats nearby).
The bathroom has a large bathtub with shower, sink and mirror cabinet, and towel rail. There are plenty of towels and some toiletries available for your use. The toilet is in a separate room.
The bedroom has a large, comfortable double mattress (Queen size) and a small amount of storage space.
The spacious living room has a large comfortable double sofa bed (with a duvet, futon mattress, and pillows contained in a compartment under the sofa), large 55-inch tv, non-working fireplace, plenty of lighting, coffee table, and access to the balcony, where you can smoke or enjoy a coffee while you people watch. There is also a small dining alcove, with a dining table (seats 4) and bar.
The apartment also has very fast fibre wifi which was recently installed.
The entire apartment will be your private space.
I will be available by mobile during the stay, but out of the city. A friend who lives nearby will be available if any problems or help is needed. I am also on hand for local recommendations if you would like them.
- Smoking on the balcony only
- No toilet flushing from 10pm - 7am (it's a Swiss thing)
- Old Geneva buildings don't have the best sound-proofing. There is almost no noise from other flats, but please be aware of walking around in shoes/banging cupboards, etc, and generally making noise for others.
- Other things will be explained in a guide for you to read
