We arrived at the Geneva Airport in the afternoon of the 2nd and were greeted by our hosts.

Arriving at our host's beautiful home in Vandoeuvres, a short distance outside of Geneva.
We were shown ‘our’ room and stowed our gear, then went out for a walk around the neighborhood to stretch our legs and get our bearings. For being so close to Geneva (a 10 minute drive straight into the heart of the city) Vandoeuvres is very rural!

We returned and took a tour of the house before we settled down to a light meal.

The wine cellar!
The first of many gourmet meals - a cucumber aspic salad with mustard vinaigrette dressing, followed by spaghetti with tomato sauce. Yum!
And finally, falling asleep under the chandelier in one of the upstairs bedrooms.
