Bed for two under the roof in one old house very close to the Cathedral of Lausanne in the Old-Town (Cité). Seven min from metro and 20 min walk distance from the railway station. Ideal to visit the city and beautiful Switzerland.
Very central location in the historic part of Lausanne. Perfect to explore the city of Lausanne, rest of Switzerland, and nearby France (Evian and Thonon).

You'll share the kitchen and bathroom with me since I am also living in the apartment. All Swiss-clean standards ;)
Interaktion mit Gästen
During October 2017, I will not be in the apartment. You will be on your own! I will give you all the needed information for the check-in.
For the rest of the year, I am living in the apartment, but during the week, I am busy with my job. During the weekend, I am busy hiking in Summer and skiing in Winter! I am looking forward to interacting with you, but it may also happen that I will not see you during your stay. In any case, you'll will have full intimacy!

Since 1405 until the present day without interruption, the city of Lausanne has maintained a lookout (town crier) in the Cathedral bell tower. The lookout announces the time by yelling the hour from 10 pm to 2 am 365 days a year. The lookout cries the hour to each cardinal direction "« C'est le guet, il a sonné [dix] »". The original purpose of the lookout was to provide a warning in case of fire though it has now become a traditional function. Since 2002, the official lookout is Renato Häusler (Ref. Wikipedia). You will most likely hear him! This is charming!
In addition, the street (Rue Cité-Devant) is on the Route of St-James (Via Jacobi). The Via Jacobi leads from the Bodensee to Geneva as part of the European Jakobsweg (Route of St. James). Lined by churches, monasteries and chapels, it offers a fabulous hiking experience along historic paths through a diverse cultural landscape.

Fifty-two year-old Swiss and Italian, father of two grown-up children. Living in the French-speaking part of Switzerland (City of Lausanne at the Lac Léman-Geneva) and working in the German-speaking part (City of Bern) as a professor at the University (Fac. of Medicine).
With my family, we lived for two years in Manhattan, New York, NY, since I was working at Columbia University.
I like traveling (leisure and business) and I am uncomplicated, a very open-minded person. I do not smoke, do a lot of sport (hiking, skating, running, cycling) but also like good food and wine!
