“Wonderful base for families with young children”

Ville de Divonne-les-Bains
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Divonnes is a wonderful little town for families with young kids. Only a 20 minute drive from Geneva airport, the town is beautifully decorated with road-side and street-side plantings and lighting. There are a number of very clean, and very well laid out, playgrounds. The variety of restaurants is adequate to satisfy all tastes - Italian, Indian, Japanese, pizza, bar food etc. The aquatic centre is very strictly managed and patrolled by the life guards (great news for those with small people in tow), is very clean, and offers a number of swimming/diving/slide options for all ages and all skill levels. The town has a very impressive esplanande, and hosts a full summer programme of free events for all comers - theatre, outdoor mobile cinema offerings and exhibitions. The local lake is magnificent, boasts a multi-lane road/track around it (approx. 30 minutes to jog/run per circuit). Highly recommended.

It is a very nice looking little town, it is clean, it feels fresh. But is also felt to me like a bit artificial. Tourists are tolerated, but not too welcome. I would sure tell you to visit, but don't stay too long.

This small city, we visited for trying THERMES. Its ok, if really you have nothing to do, just relax a bit. Cheap and ok. But nothing spectacular.
One thing i mentioned, people are not smiling.
Can be advised for couple of days, after bona be very boring.

Very nice little town - cobble stones, cottages , easy drive from Geneva. Has a great Sunday Market -- where you can taste local food, amble around pick up knicks and knacks -- or just sit by a way side cafe and have wine or coffee.

Quiet,clean, relaxing..this small village has everything you need for a quiet weekend away yet close enough to geneva and Monreux for sight seeing.
