Description

Do not ask us about availability if you haven't checked our calendar and if you do not want to write to write a personal message telling something about yourself and the persons travelling with you.

Please do not book more than 3 months in advance!

In Maur near Zürich we have a small old house with two rooms. Thise house needs to be rebuilt very soon. This 120 year old house is very basic and worn out. On ground floor it has a small kitchen and upstairs there is a toilet and a shower.

No smoking inside. Because we never smoke, we prefer guest who do not even know what tobacco is.

Some people have said that the house is smelling and that is is not healthy to live there. So the time is really coming that the house has to be rebuilt. But other people did not have this impression.

Since all the cats in the neighbouhood do only have psychologic tasks it can happen that we meet a mouse in the kitchen.

The house is heated with electric

The house is heated with electric heaters and if it is very cold outside then it will not be very warm inside. Therefore it may be advisable not to book to early in winter and watch the weather conditions first.

Sure, the house is not for just everybody, but many artists did quite like it.

We think this little hous is ok until max 4 persons. A dog we count like an extra person.

Maur is still a farming village, 35 minutes by tram and bus from the main train station of Zurich (12km east, at a lake opposite of Uster)

Local attractions
- pretty village with 4 restaurants and small castle of XII century
- 5 minute walk through the fields to the lake, or 4 hours around it

- free Internet access at PC in room and open wireless (if it works).

- bicycles on arrangement, they might have to be repaire first

Rules
- use showers reasonably as supply of hot water has to last for all and there is only 100 liter hotwater per day..
- Do not come with an expensive car. It does not suit with the house.

How to get there from Zurich by public transport:
- a ticket (enter 8124 at machine) costs Fr.8.20 (valid 2 hours),
or an pass for 24 hours (Zones 10, 21,30) costs Fr.16.40 (Train rides to the airport are included in those tickets. If you buy a card with 6 tickets on it, you can buy half fare if you are not over 25 years old. A monthly all zones pass valid after 9am, personal or transferable, costs about SFr.130.-.)
- tram number 3 to Klusplatz (allow 20 minutes to get there)
- then bus 747, leaves at about 19 and 49 past every hour, last bus at 36 minutes past midnight, 20 min. ride via Witikon, Binz, Ebmatingen to Maur Dorf (at the foot of the hill).

From the Airport Tram 12 to Stettbach and then bus 743 to Maur Dorf. This works until about 8pm. Later Stettbach to Fällanden then bus to Pfaffhausen then bus 747 to Maur Dorf. A ticket would be about CHF 5, as you are not entering the city zone on that way. Or right away but more expensive via Zurich main station as explained above. Count one hour for this trip.

Location description from owner

The Canton of Zurich region

Maur has about 1000 inhabitants and it is still a farming village, even if it has a lot of residential areas. It is quite a change coming home from a day in Zurich. Maur has one small supermarket, a few restaurant and you can also get something to eat at the lake in the public bath or at the camp ground. There is an old wood mill, a small medieval castle, a nice church, and a famous recording studio, where a lot of music that you might be listening has been recorded.

Zurich Old Town

12 km east of Zurich.
20 minutes bus Nr 747 from Zurich Klusplatz, or
20 minutes bus Nr 743 from Zurich Bahnhof Stettbach to
