“Fantastic market on Sunday!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2013

I have not seen all there is to see in Divonne yet, but the small lake is lovely and the Sunday market is going to have to be on your to-do list when you visit the area! There are a lot of funky galleries and really nice little restaurants all over the place, too... Great weekend destination!

“Nice quiet town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2013

A nice rural area close to Geneva. If you prefer to stay in a quiet place - it is a place to be. There are nice cafes and restaurants, a supermarket and a nice castle (hotel and restaurant) built on a hill.

“Mignonne”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2013

Adorable little village right off the Swiss boarder. On sundays there is a market that has great produce, cheeses and anything else you would want! The supermarket is open on sundays too.

“So close to Switzerland, but it is France”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2012

If one has ever been to Paris and departs wondering if France is friendly towards foreign visitors, just go to a place like Divonne to see how far people there go to make you feel welcome. There was an exposition in the centre attached to the Office de Tourisme which was displaying crafts for sale from countries in which the village is actively engaged in education projects. They were delighted to have visitors. On walks around the village, residents volunteered their help to be sure the visitor was on the right path. A lovely stream coursing thorough the village. The Jura mountains surrounding the settlement. I had a very enjoyable stay. I hope to be back in another year.
