About Sara Greig

I am a Canadian born Swiss citizen and fourth generation to live in my family owned 500+ year old house in Bern's Altstadt. I live with my husband, Rob and our two kids on the fourth floor of the building. The rental apartment is located on the third floor so we are never far away should you need any help. We love meeting new people and sharing the beautiful city of Bern.

Sara Greig purchased this apartment in 1947

wonderful central location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment for 3 days (June 2016). I've traveled extensively with my family of 4 over the past 10 years and have stayed in many hotels and apartments. This was one of the top 1-3 best experience.

1st of all our host Rob and Sara were fantastic from the start to finish. They were always available and very prompt to respond. The apartment was centrally located (2 stops by tram/bus or less than 10 minute walk from the train station, right in the heart of old town Bern, 1/2 block from the famous clock tower). On Saturdays the open market is held on the street in front of the apartment. The apartment was roomy even for a family of 4, spotlessly clean with quality furnishings including several centuries old antique items. From the apartment we could walk or simply take the local public transportation (which is free with the transport pass provided by Rob and Sara) to everywhere. Tons of restaurants line the surrounding streets. Local markets less than 1 block away (Coop, Migros). Again we had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend the apartment for visiting Bern or as a base to explore central Switzerland

Fantastic apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this beautiful, spotlessly clean 3rd floor apartment. Well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed and great to be able watch the world go by from the lounge. Excellent location in the centre of Bern - we were able to walk everywhere. Last but not least - Rob and Sara were very helpful and welcoming hosts - thank you!
