Practical tip – Housing - Temporary housing rental
First flat in Switzerland is probably furnished and temporary because your stay is rather short or your move of household goods takes time. In addition, you probably want to take your time to explore the different neiborhoods of Lausanne, consider the countryside versus city and residential villages.
Temporary apartments are expensive because dwellings are an all-in solution, including utilities, oven times insurances, internet, bed linen, dish ware and eventually parking.
Please remember to ask for a proper rental confirmation/contract, which you will need for the registration at the town hall.
