We have a beautiful studio apartment with a private entrance on the ground floor of our country home. If you are looking for rest and a base for your European travels or if you are traveling with your family, we are your stop. We are located 30-40 minutes from the Zurich airport, 35 minutes from Constance, Germany, an hour from Austria and about an hour and a half from France. In Switzerland we are just about a 10 minute drive from Winterthur and Frauenfeld, about a 30 minute drive from Zurich and St. Gallen, and about an hour and 15min drive from Lucerne and 2 hours from Bern. We are just under a one hour drive to the Swiss Alps. Save on expensive Swiss hotels, which normally charge per person (not per room) and tour Europe in making day trips to all these European destinations or enjoy a late summer's night dinner on the back porch and stroll through the countryside. Enjoy our idyllic midsummer nights, with daylight lasting up to 10pm and listen to the charming cow bells ringing in the distance. We are surrounding by hiking trails through the hillside and breathtaking Swiss woods. The ancient St. Jacob's pilgrimage trail runs right through our village.
You will need to rent a car, but if you don't want to drive everywhere and want to have relaxing train voyage, a train station is located at the base of village. You can park there and take train trips if you like. Our country home is a peaceful, quiet place with a bakery and a little restaurant just a few minutes walk down the path. You can even buy fresh milk from the farmer down the path every evening at 6:30pm. We have a large garden with a trampoline, a slide, a sandbox and a quiet little back patio that overlooks the countryside.
We have an extremely comfortable Swiss Bico Queen size Murphy bed that folds into the wall, so that during the day you have a comfortable living area with a full kitchen, dining table and sofa with French doors that open up onto a shaded back patio. We have sleeper sofa so that you can have full use of the studio by day and sleep 4 (either 3 adults or 2 adults and 2-3 children) by night and a pack-and-play in case you are coming with a baby that we can lay out in the living area. If you are looking for rest and a place to base your European travels from or if you are coming with your family, we are your stop. Following are day trips that are easily accessible:
Winterthur, 5 miles away houses some of Europe's most famous art pieces including artists such as Claude Monet, Pierre-August Renoir, Edouard Mane, Paul Cézanne and Pablo Picasso. If you love music and art, this is a must see. Spend the day touring art museums and strolling down the ancient cobblestone streets as Winterthur celebrates it's 750th birthday this year. Enjoy the church bells, which still participate in the ancient practice of ringing in the sabbath on Saturday evening around 7pm or ringing out the Sabbath on Sunday evening around 7pm. The Winterthur Chamber Orchestra is the oldest orchestra in Switzerland and is unique for it's beauty and quality of tone.
