House in Bern, Switzerland

Our house ist about 100 years old an a charming Jugenstil-villa. It is situated 15 Minutes to walk to the historical center of Berne, in a small quiet road in a lively quarter. We live in the first two floors, the third floor has a separate entrance and is permanently rented to a nice couple. The house is renovated and now we have a nice big kitchen, from where you can enter an open Veranda, where we usually eat during summer. We don't have a car, but everything is easy to reach by public transport, e.g. Interlaken lies in 1 hour distance by train: there are many possibilities to hike or to ski in Winter (daytrips easy possible). In summer an attraction of Berne is to swim in the river Aare (max. 20°...), a nice adventure for good swimmers. With children it is nice to picnic on the board of the river and put the feet in the water. The town offers different kind of Museums, the most famous possibly the Zentrum Paul Klee, which is nice for children too. We are a nice, uncomplicated familiy with a red cat, which would like attention and food during our absence.
