Great view onto the Alpes, astonishingly large lake

We were here in winter and enjoyed some great views. Will return in summer to enjoy a trip with the sailing boat.

Huge lake and the mountains! That's a real breathtaking mixture. Being somewhere near Geneva, you can't miss this view! Try to relax on the lake side and enjoy the view!

You can't beat this place for a stroll especially when it's not peak time and busy with tourists. It's surreal and makes you dream of living along the edges of this beautiful lake.

I highly suggest walking along the waterside to view the beautiful lake. Even when it's cloudy, it's very pretty. But I'm sure it will be spectacular when it's clear and sunny!

Anywhere everywhere this lake is beautiful. From Geneva it's a great view especially the fountain. It's a massive lake over 90miles long.
