Please NOTE that as mentioned in the description above the distance from our house is just 650m to the metro station. This short disctance has a max. SLOPE of 12% on the first 300metres, as we are living on a beautiful hillside above the city. So if you are not arriving by car but with luggage, it recommend to take a taxi on your first day. Please do not book if the SLOPE poses any inconvenience for you. Thank you.
Thank you. When you return home from your day in town and use the train (either line S1 or S2) to our Station Peu del Funicular, make sure not to enter the first wagon in the train's direction of travel. As the Peu train station was originally constructed for stream trains and opened in 1906, the length of the platforms remains quite short. So the first wagon stops right in front of it and you might be in a rush to leave the train.Birds eye view
