towns/villages near Bern

Hi- I might be moving to Bern in the future and have a few questions on finding a rental property. We have primary school age children, and would prefer to live in.a house in a town or village near Bern to save on rent.



Can anyone recommend some family friendly areas near Bern that are fairly decent with reasonably priced houses for rent? I understand Switzerland is expensive, I'm just hoping not to pay a fortune. We would commute to Bern for work.



Thanks heaps!

Well living in a house most places in Switzerland will not save you rent, to the contrary, it will be more expensive. Living in an apartment is the norm. Of course you may find very cheap houses to rent but count on a long commute to most metropolitan areas and limited transport options. You would likely have to make some compromises if you want access to Bern with a reasonable commute.

Re: towns/villages near Bern

Welcome to the Forum. Here are some older threads that may help you narrow down your options in terms of which villages might be a good fit:

https://www.englishforum.ch/housing-...bern-city.html

Here's a quick search on Immoscout for houses with 10 km of Bern. Keep in mind the cheapest listing is for rooms to rent, not the whole house. In terms of rooms, 3.5 rooms means 2 bedrooms. If you need 3 bedrooms you need to look for a 4.5 room house or flat.
