"'Easy Living' in Switzerland"

Found this property after considerable on-line searching. Most other properties in the region were either in remote locations and unsuitable for anyone with impaired mobility or outrageously expensive. Le Petit Pre seemed to 'tick all the boxes' and in reality turned out ideal in every way:- - a comfortable and well equiped apartment. - ground floor with access to sunny garden - easy parking - close to amenities and public transport
