The Space:
Your private room is beautifully and tastefully furnished. Enjoy your own private terrace which offers a refreshing view of the Jet d'Eau and the tree-lined courtyard below.

You will have direct balcony access without having to cross over to the common areas.
There will be fresh towels provided and simple continental breakfast.

Guest Access

Your private room with an ajoining bathroom with toilet and shower.
The kitchen and living room are common areas.
Your rented room is very private so there isn't any issue with privacy.

Interaction with Guests

You can text me or email me anytime.
My mother is away most of the day, so you'll have the flat to yourself.

The Neighborhood

The apartment is situated next to the luxurious President Wilson Hotel, fronting the beautiful Lake Leman. Situated in the trendy and lively part of the Paquis area where there are a variety of hotels, shops, restaurants and cafés.

Walking distance to the gare, with convenient public transportation that takes you to the UN in less than 10 minutes (you can even walk to the UN) and to other favorite tourist destinations.

The apartment is very peaceful and on the top floor so you aren't disturbed by any noise but if you want to have a bite to eat or want to have a drink, it's a 2 minute walk.

Getting around

From the Station, the bus 1 or 25 direction Jardin Botanique takes 5 minutes.
Otherwise you can enjoy a walk to the station which is about 10 minutes.
From the airport, you have to take the train to Geneva Station (10 minutes) and follow the steps above.

Other Things to Note

Our upstairs terrace is HUGE and you have access to it. During the summer months, you can enjoy the terrace with a view of the mountains and water fountain and use our BBQ grill also :)

  • The house is absolutely lovely, very clean and in a great location - within walking distance from the train station and 100m or so from the lake. There are balconies around the apartment and a big roof terrace with dining and lounging equipment, from which you can see the jet d'eau.

    Julie was always very responsive by text and her mum Tess is great. Nothing was ever a problem for Tess, she was polite at all times, knew a lot about the city and had some good recommendations. Hopefully won't be relevant to others, but my passport went missing during my stay and Tess went to unbelievable lengths to help sort it out... far beyond the call of duty.

    Have recommended family members to stay at Julie-Ange's (who have booked for next month); I would happily stay there again if the opportunity arises

  • The room was lovely, the apartment was stunning, the hosts warm and kind. I was not expecting the rooftop to be quite as amazing as it was in reality. Tess and Amy were wonderful hosts, very friendly and gave me great tips on where to go. I had a thoroughly enjoyable time and would definitely stay here again.

  • We had such a great time in Julie Ange's Penthouse Room! Her mother Tess did welcome us very warmly and we felt very comfortable immediately. The room was exactly as shown in the pictures, very pretty and clean. There was even a bathtub (we only expected a shower), which was a nice surprise. The place is indeed very private as we were able to walk between our room and the bathroom in a private seperated area. We also enjoyed our breakfast on the huge terrace on top of the penthouse which provides a beautiful view across the lake and on the famous fountain "Jet d'Eau". In general we think we could not have chosen a better place for our two-night-stay. This was our first experience with Airbnb and we are very happy about everything. Tess provided us with many helpful tips about transportation, sightseeing and everything else. Thank you for everything! :)

    This place is highly recommended, 5/5 stars!

  • It was really great, her mother was waiting for us she is really great person and it was a pleasure to meet her. I really recommend go there if you plan to go to Geneva.

    I just stay for a night but it was enough time to say that it is a really great place and it has all the things that are detailed in the page

  • Julie's penthouse room with private bathroom is extremely pleasant and comfortable. The apartment is in an excellent location within easy walking distance of the railway station.

    The 6th floor location offers great views adn there is a welcome lift for those with lots of luggage.
