Les Baladines à Thonon



In summer

On the southern shore of Lake Geneva, Thonon is the ideal starting point for exploring the region: the lake, the mountains, Haute-Savoie, Switzerland or Italy. Everything is possible from Thonon: Fitness and spa treatments, cruises on the lake, water sports, hiking, golf, visits to museums, castles, local crafts, gastronomy and local produce… Or simply stroll through the streets of the town and stroll along the shores of Lake Geneva.

In winter

Take advantage of the proximity of the resorts, for cross-country or downhill skiing, snowshoeing, etc.
Staying in Thonon makes it easy to discover the family resorts less than 20km away, and the major Portes du Soleil resorts with their 650km of pistes (Morzine-Avoriaz and Châtel) 30km away.

Take part in one of the many events in Thonon: Christmas entertainment, La Matagasse Carnival, shows at the Maison des Arts, etc.

You can visit the charming town of Evian, 10km away, and the towns of our Swiss neighbours: Lausanne (27min by boat), Geneva, Montreux, Gruyère, the Lavey baths…
And there’s always the pleasure of strolling through Thonon, for shopping and lakeside activities…
