I've just crunched the numbers on the train/bus transport.

We spent 377.70 CHF each in transportation at half fare. With the cost of the Half Fare Card (120 CHF) we each spent a total of 497 CHF in transportation.

Subtract the cost of the Half Fare Card (120 CHF each) and you can see that we more than broke even, with a savings of 257.70 CHF each.

Mel, what street was your apartment in?
The website didn’t give an address or map.

Adelaidean -

It's on Tru Sura (of which there are two branches, one above, one below, the apartment was on the upper branch).

Before we booked, we asked for the address and found it on Google maps. I'd be happy to send you the address if you'd like. It's below the main road. We were afraid noise from the road would be a problem, but no issues with the windows closed. Not sure if that would be the case in summer as I personally would need the windows open all the time.

Thanks, Mel. Just noting it in case we do visit next autumn for less than the usual week. Ours required a Sat to Sat booking.
We liked the location of ours, a nice flat road for shopping and restaurants, no cardiac arrest getting the milk.

I hear you. I seem incapable of booking places that are easy

Against my better judgement I just added up the grocery store receipts from our self-catering, on the off chance it helps future visitors with budgeting - 459 CHF.

That covered about 20 days of cooked breakfasts (of the remaining five days, three were spent in a hotel which included breakfast and the last two in Erlenbach we didn't bother to cook breakfast), almost as many make-shift dinners, and of course assorted beer, wine, Prosecco, snacks, gummy bears and chocolate; about 21 CHF per day.
