Living in Geneve or Saint-Genis-Pouilly

Hello everybody,

I am a new user here, so thanks for advices if I do some things wrong here

First of all I would like to introduce a little bit. I am Polish student, who got the job in Geneve, strictly in CERN. Job will start March-April till end of 2013 year.

I would like ask some questions to people who are living in Switzerland/France border whole live or just moved to Geneve.
1) First of all, because of I am a student, where is better to live, I mean, where the live is cheaper?
2) I am looking for a flat to rent in period March-December 2013. I will share a flat with my other friend who will also go to work there, and maybe 1 more friend. So flat min 40m2 for 2-3 people. What range of prices should I expect?
3) Where can I find some offers of flats in Geneve/Saint-Genis-Pouilly. It can be also farther because we will have a car, so it will be not a problem to drive 20-30 km from another cities.

These questions are the most important for me on the beginning. I know that in SGP there is hostel, but prices are really high.

Thank You for attention, and if you have some ideas and tips, let me know.
I will be very grateful for any help

Have a nice evening and of course Happy New Year

Type the following into Google.fr:
"location saint genis pouilly"
Location is the French for renting. Being so close to Geneva and CERN makes it expensive - I spotted 40m2 for 770 euros/month...

Re: Living in Geneve or Saint-Genis-Pouilly

Hi Mosquitoo,

We seriously looked at renting in SGP but we got housing in Geneva through my school so we won't be going there until our 3 year rent is up. For us as a family it made sense to move to France - cheaper health care, daycare spots, stores that are open on Sundays, etc. As a student, SGP was great because the tram from CERN would take me to downtown, the rents were considerably cheaper than in Geneva and there seemed to be a great community there in terms of cafés and a nice library where I can go to get work done.

During our search, we used Alexendre and Léa at http://www.damiers.fr/
They were really great and patient and answered my eleventy billion questions. They also manage apartments for rent so they would likely have some good insights for you in terms of your price range.

In terms of SGP as a town, it seems like they actually WANT people to move there. There is lots of development surrounded by nice farmland and I've done lots of long runs out there and it seems really charming. If only it wasn't so far!
Renting itself also seemed pretty painless, unlike the ridonk Régie system.

PM me if you have more questions and good luck!
