The Place To Stay…
Villa Clotilde is located in the heart of Geneva. It offers an ideal setting to young women aiming at successful studies in an enriching international environment.
Welcome to our Villa
Villa Clotilde accommodates around twenty students, providing ample opportunity to meet and exchange with other students.
Villa Clotilde is run by Ursulin Sisters who do their best to give the house a family spirit. Members of other religions feel very much at ease in an atmosphere of mutual respect.

Our (former) residents
Villa Clotilde is an international and really welcoming place to live, where you can share everyday life learning from other cultures.
Villa Clotilde is conveniently located at the doorway of Geneva’s old town, right next to bus and tram stops and a short walking distance from nice cafes, shops, and restaurants.
It’s a quiet and safe area of the city, surrounded by embassies, residential buildings, and parks; the ideal place for a student to focus and easily explore Geneva!
Villa Clotilde was more than a student residence to me; as a student moving out of home for the first time and to a new country, it represented a home and a family. This is where I met people from all over the world, shared the day-to-day, and created bonds, some of which continue today. At the Villa, are some of the happiest memories of my time in Geneva.
The Villa was not only my home in Geneva, but my family in Geneva. Every time I came home I found my sisters, the warmth of their smiles, the comfort of their words. The friendship that binds me to the sisters and girls I have met here has always grown me deeply and I hope to be able to see all my sisters again, wherever they are.
When we meet in the evening around a good meal prepared by Paulette, it is a very joyful and convivial moment. We can discuss the day that each one has lived, discuss, laugh, while eating a good little dish (always very balanced)!
It wasn’t just a residence for me, it was a home. I found my Geneva family at the villa. I recommend everyone to have this great experience.
