HELP-Apartment near PSI - Links for furnished accomodation?

Good afternoon everybody!

Starting from September\October, I have to move from Italy to Switzerland to work in PSI (Villigen) for 2 years.
Do anybody knows where I can find information about fournished flats for rent near PSI (Villigen, Brugg, Baden)? I'm without car and I have to go to work by public transportation or bike.

Do you think that (more or less) 1000 CHF\month should be reasonable as cost for the rent?

Thank you in advance!

So.

Re: HELP-Appartment near PSI

Welcome to the Forum.

It's pretty irrelevant whether we think a certain sum will be enough for a furnished flat or not. You need to find one.

You cannot put an Ad in here yet (as you've probably found out already) so I suggest you go through the Sticky at the top of this forum where there are quite a few Sites which might help you. You know, where it says
Sticky: FAQs - you SURE your question/problem/requirement is unique? Look here before asking
Then do a search for things like 'furnished accomodation' 'temporary accomodation' and see if you can turn up a few Threads which might also have helpful links.

Good luck in your search.

Hi and welcome to the forum.
PSI has a guesthouse and they offer furnished housing for a limited time period, if they have space available. The prices are posted. Here is the link.

http://www.psi.ch/gaestehaus/

PSI also have a limited number of furnished apartments they offer to employees, mainly married couples, it seems. I am not sure exactly who is offered these. Many of my PSI clients have stayed in the guesthouse or one of these apartments before I have helped them find an unfurnished apartment for their long term stay.

There is also a building in Stilli (Villigen) offering furnished rooms with a communal kitchen. PSI knows about this as they were invited to the open house after it was refurbished. It is the former Hotel Steig, now called Aarbrücke Gästehaus. The kitchen is communal, just as it is at the PSI guesthouse.

Sorry. But there is relatively no way to find a furnished place in Switzerland for 1000CHF/month. You might be able to find a room in a shared flat for that much (I have a friend who rents a room in Brugg for 800), but typical unfurnished apartments in Brugg are no less than about 1200. I used to live in Brugg and paid over 1700 for mine (it was huge though), and I helped a friend find a place for just over 1200--but again, unfurnished. Baden is around the same if not more expensive b/c it is closer to Zurich.

I work at PSI and there really isn't much in the area (Brugg and Baden (or even Wuerlingen) are your best options). Look on homegate.ch for availability. And it would be best to make a visit to IKEA once you arrive and furnish the place yourself. Good luck in your search.
