Situated by the lakeside at the foot of the Jura mountains and at the heart of Switzerland, Biel/Bienne is the world capital of watchmaking (Rolex, Omega, Swatch). With the lake and the rivers, the Jura forests and the vineyards, Biel has a wonderful recreational area right on its doorstep - including miles and miles of cycle tracks. Biel/Bienne is Switzerland's largest bilingual town. Here, German and French language have equal rights. Biel/Bienne's old town is a jewel and the Ring the city's oldest square.
Bern, Capital of Switzerland is about 30 minutes by car or train, Interlaken (Mountains) is about an hour driving, Geneva or Zurich are only at one hour and a half drive.
We are in the heart of the city with lots of shops and restaurants. However, our street is quiet at night. Our house was recently renovated. It has three floors;
First floor has a fully renovated kitchen which is open to the dining room. A study with desk and computer and a large living room with TV, separated toilets.
