“An excellent, well equipped and conveniently situated apartment”
Reviewed 8 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Very well situated only a short tram ride from the city centre, this apartment ticks all the right boxes. Cosy Chêne Bourg is very well equipped and a perfect base for exploring the region. If you rent a car, there is underground parking very close by, although, like all parking in Geneva, it is not cheap. However, we managed to find free overnight free parking spots each day.
Lennart, the owner, was most helpful when meeting us to show us round the apartment and gave valuable information to help us make the most of our holiday.

“"Cosy Chene Bourg" says it all”

COSY

“Cosy Chene Bourg” certainly lives up to its name. It is warm, well equipped, immaculate and, yes, cosy. The kitchen is small but totally workable, although if you are, like me, less than average height, you might find the oven and cupboards a little challenging. We often stay in self catering accommodation and I am used to having to go out and buy some essential piece of equipment which is lacking, or to clean the kitchen/bathroom surfaces before use. Not so here. The owners have thought of everything and what is more, it is all of good quality. The provision of items such as table mats and napkins, bath robes and slippers, a welcoming bottle of wine and nibbles on arrival, reliable Wifi and a personal “tour” by the charming owner were much appreciated and made us feel like valued guests.

The entrance lobby leads to a small separate kitchen, and into the lounge/dining room, with a view of the entrance courtyard. Upstairs is a large light and airy bedroom with lots of storage, and a large fully equipped bathroom with shower over the bath. We did not need to use them but I understand there are laundry facilities available.

Chene Bourg is a little way out of Geneva but it is a very pleasant community, with good restaurants, Migros, Aldi and Coop shops in walking distance, a bakery 4 minutes’ walk away, and several quiet parks to wander or relax in. Parc Floraire, with its impressive swiss chalet, is 5-10 minutes’ walk away on avenue du Petit-Senn and is worth a visit. The tram stop at Place Favre is just a few minutes away from the apartment. The number 12 tram runs every 3-4 minutes. 2 or 3 stops to the French border and a connecting bus to Annemasse in one direction, the heart of Geneva at the other. Two tips: if you are staying for a week, go the TPG office at Cornavin railway station and ask about a weekly pass – it works out much cheaper and you can travel anywhere in the Geneva region (including to Annemasse) for free. The other tip is that, if you are travelling from the airport, take the number 10 bus into the city (direction Rive) and get off at Rive. It is just a few yards then to the number 12 tram stop, direction Moillesulaz.

We adored this place and found it difficult to leave. We are planning our next visit, so, if you are reading this, please leave space for us in the calendar!

“Fantastic base to explore Geneva”

Gorgeous apartment with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. Kitchen was small but had everything you could need including coffee machine. Very comfortable bed with quality linen. Nice bathroom with bath and shower facilities. Lovely wooden floors and in a beautiful quiet and secure residential block. A very short walk to the 12 tram which takes you directly into the centre of Geneva, quite a few grocery shops nearby, and some lovely little restaurants. The owners were lovely and met us with a bottle of wine and snacks to welcome us to Geneva, and were truly lovely to deal with. Would most definitely recommend to friends to stay here when visiting Geneva.
