General description

  • Main home
Our home has 2 bedrooms with two bathrooms (+ an office) and a nice garden with the view of the mountains. Our home and garden are a non-smoking environment.
It's located in a small village close to the main small town (10mn drive) with all commodities. We are only a 15-minute drive from the CERN tram stop in the Geneva area across the border. With the tram, the Geneva city center is only 30 minutes away.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • 2 cats
Our cats Sacha & Filou eat wet food twice a day, morning and evening: we feed them when we wake up around 6:00am (Sacha will remind you of the time do not worry!).... and before going to bed, between 9:30pm and 10:00pm.

There is an automatic dry food feeder scheduled for 12:00pm daily (you will have to make sure that it is filled). Additional wet food is stored in the kitchen and the garage.

They enjoy treats, especially when they come back from the garden after hunting; treats are located in the cupboard below the oven. In that cupboard we keep wet food for the week, as well as dry food.

If we are at home, we give them a "collation" (snack) at the end of the afternoon....

The cats have access to a water fountain that needs to be kept filled with filtered water (there are two fountains, one in the kitchen and one upstairs). There is a bowl with water outside as well (we noticed that Sacha was drinking more regularly from the bowl).

Sacha and Filou are both allowed anywhere in the house during daytime, except bathrooms and the garage; but no cat on the dining table, it is off limits! They share the space pretty well, with occasional turf battles, but nothing too serious.

The garden has been fenced so that they can enjoy it during the day. No cats allowed outside at night. In summer, we keep the window open for them to go back and forth; in winter, we have installed a cat flap to avoid losing the heath from inside.

They spend the night in their space in the living room or upstairs in the cozy TV space, we have trained them not to sleep with us at night. So we close our bedroom door. We allow them to snuggle into our bed after the morning meal only. Depending on the season and weather outside, they want to go out immediately after their first meal, or stay inside until it's warmer outside.

Practical life

Fully equipped kitchen; induction cooking easy to use. Having two cats in an open kitchen is not ideal so we need to be careful to not leave any food or drinks unattended on the kitchen counter. The cats are not allowed to eat human food ever.
- Washing machine and dryer are provided in the garage (washing powder on a shelf there); small clothing items can be dried outside in the garden.
- There is also a dishwasher; a microwave and a regular oven. We will leave a notice about how to use them on the kitchen counter.

The house is equipped with underfloor heating system + individually electrical heating in each room that needs to be switched off and on manually, depending on the temperature outside. In summer, when it's very hot outside, we recommend lowering the blinders in all the rooms to keep it fresh and re-opening them towards the end of the afternoon.

In winter there is a wood stove for heating ( wood stacked outside under the roof and in the garage). Instructions on how to use the stove will be given during the hand-over + a notice will be included in the welcome package.
