How to find a furnished apartment in Schaffhausen?

My husband is supposed to start working in Schaffhausen in about a month.
Since we are not familiar with Schaffhausen we wish to rent a furnished 3-4 rooms apartment for a month or two (we might stay there for a long period if we will like the apartment and the area).
Iíve been trying to find furnished apartments via the internet but with no luck.
Does anyone have a web site to recommend? or any other way to to find a flat?
Can someone recommend a good neighborhood in or around Schaffhausen? (it has to have good transportation to the train station)
Thanks
Ilani

Furnished places are hard to find.

You can try a holiday home. The website is --
http://www.schaffhauserland.ch/en/na...SH-FewoSH.html

Or the company that we are renting from has a furnished apartment in Flurlingen available Aug 1st. They are called Graf and Partner. Speak to Simon Leu or his business partner at +41 52 6250665.

Re: How to find a furnished apartment in Schaffhausen?

www.ums.ch is a good start for temporary accomodation in Switzerland. The owners usually rent their apartments out for a specific period of time whilst on holidays or sabbaticals. It will give you the flexibility in the meantime to look for another place should you decide to extend your stay. The only down side is the huge commission payable - about a month's rent thereabouts, if I remember correctly.

Good luck!

Most people here like the Breite region. I'd forget about getting a furnished house and instead go for unfurnished and furnish it yourself.

We just moved and was helped by a great lady, Ruth. We got an apartment in Stetten. Try 0794388857. She is on vacation for another 7 days.

You can also try:

http://www.homegate.ch/ (limited number of furnished)

http://furnished-apartments-schaffhausen.com/

http://1stop-rentals.com/vacation-re...0&Lang=English

some hotels here also do longer stays, but it's still very expensive.
