Our mission

Athomeswitzerland was founded by Bella Nokes. A lawyer with 15 years commercial experience, she moved to Switzerland in 2004. She has completed a masters in Swiss real estate valuation and acted as a consultant to foreign investors looking to access the swiss property market.

Athomeswitzerland was born of her realisation that the shortage of apartments in the region, and the complexity of the administrative system, combine to create a market for flexible serviced apartments.
