The best strategic appartement in Vevey, 2 minutes from train station and Geneva lake. Big common spaces and all conforts.

The Space

50 meters from the train station, 15 minutes to Lausanne, 8 minutes to Montreux, this appartement is in the heart of the international art Vevey town and in the middle of the UNESCO vineyards of French Swiss.

The apartment is a very big one with 4 bedrooms, a living room with terrace (where there is space for a table and two chairs to eat comfortably), a kitchen of 15 squared meters, and a bathroom.
3 of the 4 bedrooms are occupied by other flatmates, who are never there most of the time because of work that leads them away (an architect, a computer engineer and a nurse). The 4th bedroom, the one at your own disposal, is a room at the base belonging to an architect, very cozy, simple, and clean in design and overall furniture.
In this room there is also a second terrace you could benefit, totally private.

Wireless Internet access is complete and available to guests, as well as the use of the kitchen, the fridge and everything you need to make your stay the most comfortable possible.

Guest Access

The guests have access to their room, to the kitchen, to the living room and to the bathroom.
Moreover, they can benefit of a huge underground storage space, a private balcon and a place of parking if they have a car.

Interaction with Guests

I usually don't interact a lot with my guests, because I'm often abroad during their journey. Normally I welcome them with a dinner or an aperitif, and I spend a time at the beginning to show them what to do all around, either for pleasure or for work.

The Neighborhood

I'm surrounded by some really kind multi-cultural people, they are simply amazing, you'll discover it on your own ;-)
They are also very quiet, no worries if you're looking for a very resting place.

Getting around

There are free parking places for a car or a motorbike or a bus.
The flat is 2 minutes walking from the main Vevey train station, I give you the address once you confirm the reservation.

  • It was my first experience on airbnb and I do not regret it. Perfect location and very friendly welcome. catarina is very caring

  • The flat is great and the three flatmates are very nice persons. The flat is really good located, just next to the mainstation and near the old town and grocery stores. The bed is not made for three persons (for two it's perfect), it's quite tiny. We were very lucky, that the one flatemate helped us out with a blanket to sleep on the couch in the living room. All flatemates were very helpful and we felt as at home. I would stay there for sure any other time. Thank you so much!

  • Alberto and Catarina offer great and easy communication. One already feels welcome and at ease before you meet. I did not personnaly stay at their place as I booked for my aunts' holiday. So here are her own words:
    "My first experience in an air bnb was good and I will certainly stay in an air bnb again.The hostess (Albertos' girlfriend) was very very friendly and kind and I felt comfortable and safe staying in the apartement. Overall, it was a postive experience and enabled me to spend more great time in Switzerland on a short budget .Thanks!!!"

  • Logement collectif bon compromis quand on travaille sur vevey.
    Ponctualité à travailler pour remttre les clefs.

    November 2013
  • Overall good value for money in this region. The place is very easy to reach and right across the street from the Vevey train station, which is a 15 min train ride from Lausanne (about 10 CHF). The host has been easy to reach and even me arriving late was no problem.

About
Well, I don't know how to start talking about me... but I'll try! I'm Alberto, an italian 25 guy; I live in Lausanne after a whole life spent in Rome with my family, mama dad one brother and one lovely, fantastic and charming dog, called Daisy (she is just a pet). I've studied to be a Medical Doctor till a few time ago! It has been a very hard road but stimulant and full of satisfaction. My professional fields of interests orbit around neurosciences, from human genetic and molecular biology to the cognitive and behavioural sciences. Apart from it, I really love to make every istant something unique and special; travl is the way to create it, to photograph is the way to keep it; inside, outside of you. So, I've been trying to surround myself and make my life full of emotions and new interesting and positive experiences. During my everyday life, I wait a little bit of spare time to take my motorbike and drive it all along the country hills surrounding my city; otherwise, if it is too late and I've to stay at home, why don't I try to cook some really nice and experimental meal? Yes I do, is an interesting and pleasant pursuit; not only italian food, i catch every possible chance to learn something about new international cooking. What else? Mmh.. I think it's time to come here and discover it by yourself, if you think to be interested in. I'm back from Malaga where i studied thanks to Erasmus program, and back from New York City where I did an internship following a lab in the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. While i'm studying, i'm a hard reader: i like to delight my mind first of all with novels, especially modern licterature, writed all over the world. for example, now it's time for Beat the reaper, Josh Bazell... wonderful! i like to play sports, in my life i've tried so many things... but the must for me is kayaking over hard and fast rivers and falls; then running, waterpolo, diving, soccer, surfing, tennis-table (ooh, i love it!), swimming, volleyball, golf, i can continue till tonight ;) Then, my second life: i love above all the Theatre, going to see comedies or tragedies, the important is Going; naturally i love as well playing on the dais, also if I did nothing for fwo years. i'd greatly to resume it. regretfully, i'm addicted to my pc, i spend a lot of time watching film on it (i'm very enthusiastic of cinema), studying on it, trying to improve my knowledge of languages and many other things; for that reason i think that Internet it's one of the most powerful and important things that is ever born... but it needs a good and judicious use. So, what about my studies... Neuroscience means life. Neuronal networks don't mean only biology and genetic studies, but also talking, thinking, sharing... Anthropology, philosophy, cultures, history, all is based on our thoughts and experience. That's what I work with and the passion I want to share with my guests. Then I can teach you how to shoot a nice pic or how to plan a very funny cooking session! I'm always trying to be an open-minded person; that means that I want to learn what people desire to teach me; I found the best people at all so far, and they teached me atoms of life day by day. Thank you all folks :) Talking about who or what a person expects to meet is very boring. I could say: Oh, yes I love amazing, adventurous and easygoing people! ..but.. Apart from the canonical way through the world is thought, I believe - and I hope - that in each person there is always something really unexpected. Although I hardly love engaging, cultivated and crazy guys, a lot of times what is unforgettable to me belongs to the apparently shy, wan, even boring one. So, I don't look for a preferred one, I can be more attracted from him, of course. I don't look at all. I smell, taste, savour the company of someone. I think it is like a new meal; you'll be more or less inspired thanks to your sensations, but it is only after you tried it that you really know if and how it surprised your sense. Even negatively, it'd be ever an experience. Besides... Since I like people that make me laugh, dreamy and stimulated through their own adventures, I believe that such philosophy lays the basis for the adventure itself. --- Something more about myself... Movies, music and books are three things that really characterize myself; I love so much to watch many films (also more than one a day) and I read books and listen to music in every moment. Some examples: Movies Million dollar baby V for Vendetta Remember the titans Rain man Philadelphia Full metal jacket Patch Adams Dances with wolves Books Essay Did you spot the gorilla? How to recognise hidden opportunities in your life - Richard Wiseman How Many Friends Does One Person Need? - Robin Dunbar Il cervello anarchico - Enzo Soresi Living Loving and Learning - Leo F.
