House overview - owner's description

Want to take in a panorama of the Swiss alps? This 150 year old barn has been converted to modern standards to meet all comforts, but still retains it's character. The floor in the lounge(tiles from 1789) , and the slate bathroom has floor heating so despite the snow outside in winter, there is a very cosy atmosphere inside.There is, on the first floor the bedroom.
One can relax in summer in the garden or use the barbecue and enjoy a meal in the pergola, amongst the grapevine and hops that surround it.
Bickwil, a small village,is very centrally situated between Zurich and Luzern. With the bus stop virtually at your door and the train station only 5 minutes away, there is easy access to set you on your way to discover the many beautiful faces of Switzerland.
If you just want to relax , there are many beautiful walking tracks to discover only a few steps away.
Easy walks through the nearby wood or strolling along the banks of the local riverside are some of the simple but wonderful local activities to do at the spur of the moment.
A large shopping centre, catering for all needs is only 5mins by car or bus away and it is only a 5min walk to a smaller but very well supplied supermarket.

Susan is a most amazing host, stayed at her incredible accommodation for one month. It was the best holiday I have had for years. Nothing left undone with the accommodation, so peaceful and quiet, the views to the Alps amazing from your bedroom windows. Transport just a very short walk away, as are the shops. A walk through the gardens to the pergola just lovely, and discovering so many varieties of plants. The accommodation is very modern with new bathroom and fully equipt kitchen, but still retains an olde world feel to it. Would return there in a heart beat. Marie H, Australia

My Partner and I stayed 8 nights and it was a GREAT place to "base" and to explore Switzerland. Obfelden is a quiet place but yet so central to everything. Sue and David were gracious hosts, fulfilling our every needs, especially information on where to go, bus time tables etc and they gladly helped us out. The garden was so lovely in summertime and we loved the barbecue and the pergola, relaxing with the fantastic view and good wine! We especially enjoyed the chill zone on the mezzanine, with the alp views, especially at night. We just loved the break the peace and comfort, away from the big, hectic city where we live in Italy! Thank you Sue and David for your kindness and for making our stay so relaxing and memorable.

Private Owner From Obfelden, Switzerland Member since Jan 2014

In the 70's I spent over a year rucksacking from Australia through Asia, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, Turkey and then lived in a cave on a Greek Island for 5 months. A few years later I returned to Australia by island hopping to every Pacific island, from the US to Aus and that again for almost a year. So I love finding new places, meeting new people and that enthusiasm has continued throughout my life. I work in an international secondary school, love the contact with the youth of today and just trying to keep up on all the latest technology that they enjoy.
