We have found an exchange for summer 2018 and one for October. Only weekends available now.
Half-timbered house of 1438 in historic city centre of Basel with a view on the river Rhine. A baroque spiral staircase connects 4 floors.
Ground floor: entrance area and living room with sofa-bed, sleeping two, a trap door leads to a tiny basement with washing machine and tumbler
1st floor: kitchen (in the hall) and dining room
2nd floor: Master bedroom, bathroom with shower, home office (actually just a desk in the tiny hall)
Attic: slatted frame with mattress and some playmobile

We do have a blow-up spare bed which may sleep two more persons in the attic or dining room but the house might be rather crowded with more than 5 people.
The house is tiny, just 66 sqm in total. Each floor has a different layout because floor 1 and 2 are standing out, as seen in many half timbered houses of the 14th century. The ceiling height varies from1,97 m to 2,10. This is our second home, recently rented. The furnishing and equipping is still in progress, but the kitchen is already equipped with all necessary things to feed a family.

The street is closed to public traffic and offers no parking space. Resident's cars and deliveries are allowed during mornings only. The house is within 20 min. walking distance of both train stations. We have one men's bicycle for shopping. There is no garden but a newly opened parc is just 1 min away (see last photo).
