Long-term stay in or near Geneva

Hi all,

I am going to Geneva next week to work there for 6 months and I am urgently looking for accommodation; a simple room or a studio would do to start with. I will be working in Versoix and I have a car, so I could stay over the border in France.

Does anyone have any experience in staying in Divonne-les-Bains, Gex or nearby? Are there any serviced apartments there for long-term stay? Since my assignment is initially only for 6 months, I am reluctant to rent an unfurnished apartment.

First thing to do is to ask your employer for a list of possible places.

And yes - it is easy to drive in from Ferney or GEx or divonne.

You could also try posting this question on

Www.englishforum.ch

Which is a website for ex pats who speak English.

Many thanks for your reply.

I have booked short-term accommodation in Divonne-les-Bains and Gex, so this gives me some time to learn to know the area.

Www.englishforum.ch seems to be a very useful website.

http://www.glocals.com/ is another very good resource. These guys do organise a lot of stuffs!

As for asking about lodging in France, and given the fact the Geneva forum belongs to Switzerland, you might want to also post your request on tripadvisor.com/ShowForum-g1633623-i16681-Ai…
