Situated between a farm with view of the Alps and river- summer swimming. Bus stop is 100 m - 5 min ride to tram/train into central Zurich in 25 minutes. Town has 2 grocery stores, restaurants, cafe, bank, cablecar/walking path, outdoor pool/slides.
If you want to explore the city but go back 'home' and have a bbq and rest on the lawn, or go swimming in the river or take a five minute drive to Lake Zurich to our favorite beach, this is the place for you. The Alps are 45-60+ minutes away. It is also very convenient because it is close to the autobahn. You can also borrow our bikes and take the bike trail into the city or along the river in the other direction. There is also a forest nearby with walking/biking paths and workout stations. We have kids' toys (not an overabundance), bikes and books primarily in English and some German.
You will be able to access the whole apartment including the outside patio with a grill, table and seating for six. This is open to a grassy area that is rather private in the sense that no one passes by because there is a short wall.
We will be available via email during your stay. This is our primary residence so we would be away while you are in our home.
We have enough mattresses to sleep six and the couch is a pull out to a queen size bed.
We have a garden plot in a community garden just over the border in Zurich, about 1 k away. You could use the garden area to have a bbq and relax in. It has a little shed, table/chairs, bbq.
