Lake Geneva:

the Hidden Gem of France

Discover the Beauty and Savoyard Character of the French Chablais at the Foot of the Alps

If you don't already know this beautiful region of France, you will be sure to fall in love with the Lake Geneva (Lac Léman) area of Haute-Savoie.

The French side of the Lake near Geneva is an excellent location in Europe that combines the magnificent the Alps with a lakeshore environment, providing a small-town feel near a large international city.

At the foot of the French and Swiss Alps, on the border with Switzerland, and one hour from Geneva, you will find an enchanting location that can be enjoyed all year round.
Skiing and snowboarding in the winter, swimming in the summer, kayaking, paddle boarding, kite surfing, hiking, paragliding, cycling, rock climbing, and equestrian sports are just some of the available activities.

You will enjoy French cuisine and culture while exploring the picturesque lakeside towns of Evian-les-Bains, Thonon-les-Bains, Nernier, and Yvoire.  The Swiss towns of Lausanne, Vevey, Nyon, and Montreux are within easy reach on the other side of the Lake, only 35 minutes by boat from Evian.

The region has much to offer to satisfy all tastes and interests.  The breathtaking beauty of the Alps is any photographer's dream, with numerous deep valleys, high mountains, forests, rivers, and lakes.  Chamonix is near the famous Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in Europe, while Morzine, Avoriaz, and Chatel provide access to the Portes du Soleil ski region, one of the largest and most popular ski destinations in France.  Then there is the beautiful Annecy, known as the Venice of the Alps, and the picturesque medieval villages of Nernier and Yvoire on the shores of Lake Geneva.  You are bound to appreciate sophisticated wines from renowned vineyards, and fresh, natural and delicious local produce, including over 20 varieties of regional cheese.

The region's close proximity to Geneva means that you will be able to travel with ease.  Geneva's international airport and train station will make the whole of Europe within easy reach, allowing for quick and easy travel to Switzerland and Italy, right next door.
