Lake Geneva (known locally as Lake Leman) is a beautiful, crescent-shaped lake located between France and Switzerland, and dominated by the Alps. Geneva, the famous Swiss city located at its southern end of the lake, is a wonderful, vibrant destination packed with luxury shops and charming, cobbled streets in the old town. To the south, on the French side, is the spa town and resort of Evian-les-Bains. The chic Swiss Riviera, dotted with palm trees, stretches along the north shore from Lausanne to Montreux. The spa resort of Evian les Bains, situated on the banks of Lake Geneva near the Swiss border offers visiters the opportunity to discover its lively, well-preserved centre. An ideal place to practice a wide range of winter and summer sports.
