Self Catering Accommodation in Geneva pre possible relocation

Hi there

I have been viewing these forums for a short time now and wonder if someone can help with where I can look for self catering accommodation in the Geneva area? (I have used the Search function but couldn't find anything there)

My family (wife an 2 kids aged 5 and 2) are considering relocating from London to Geneva for the (perceived) improved quality of life.

We want to visit Geneva in August for a week to have a look around and see what is is like.

Can someone advised me of where a good place (self catering apartment/chalet/house) is to stay as base for a week that will allow us to have a good look around whilst still letting the kids have a bit of a holiday?

Many thanks
TG

Re: Self Catering Accommodation in Geneva pre possible relocation

I had a quick google for "location vacances (=holiday rental) pays de gex" (the part of France west of Geneva under the Jura mountains) & there was nothing AT ALL on the official departement site. What you want is not going to be easy to find, I'm afraid.

I have looked at accommodation along similar lines so I have quite a variety of websites saved as favourites. Glad that this one looks helpful.

So, the key words are, 'holiday home Geneva' google that and you will find lots.
Here is another great site:

I stayed at the "aparthotel" at Hotel Villa Du Lac in Divonne (15 minutes by car from Geneva). Very comfortable and convenient. Plenty for the kids to do in Divonne. Nice small lake and beach 5 mins walk from Hotel, and great swimming pool.
