We live in a big house in Thonon-les-Bains by the Geneva Lake and just next to the mountains (french Alps) : a beautiful area.
(Easy connexion from Geneva, international airport)
The ground floor of the house is just renovated, but little things need to be finished. External renovation will continue in october/november (the roof).
We have a garden with fruits and vegetables and a henhouse. Sometimes we will welcome 2 horses in the field just next the house.
500 m from the lake side : in summer swimsuit essential :)
