Versoix, an Odyssey at the gates of Geneva

An international city and the European headquarters of the United Nations, a cosmopolitan and lively city, Geneva makes you dream and the idea of spending a night on the shores of Lake Geneva is a promise of delight. After a frantic visit, rich in many discoveries in the Old City, a walk filled with joy on the harbour, the mythical photo in front of the flowered clock and the grandiose spectacle of the Jet d'eau de Genève, I succumbed to stopover not far from this refined exuberance, in Versoix within the Lake Geneva Hotelupper 3-star hotel.

The Lake Geneva Hotel, another face of Geneva, a stopover to disconnect from the world..

And what a face! Only 15 minutes from Geneva, on the shores of Lake Geneva... The Lake Geneva Hotel offers a charming setting to discover the region. Contemporary with clean and perfectly balanced lines (in the rooms and restaurant O’Fiveand lounge bar Deck by O'Five), the establishment has been designed to feel in harmony. The magic of the place works as soon as I arrive: a home port for a peaceful reward!

My first vision is fascinating, my senses have been racing sincela terrasse du Deck by O’Five, lounge bar of the Lake Geneva Hotel. My eyes are immersed in a palette of colours that come alive and intertwine. In front of me, the blue waters of Lake Geneva become the natural mirror of the French Alps. The splendour of Mont-Blanc in the background offers a breathtaking panorama! Who sublimates the other? The marriage of the mountains and the largest lake in Western Europe is an invitation to take a break from hedonism on the teak terrace, which itself recalls the delicate movement of the water... To crown this enchanting moment and prolong my reverie, comfortably seated in the designer furniture of the terrace, I let myself be tempted by the tasting of a Geneva wine (the canton of Geneva is the 3rd largest wine producer in Switzerland)... The gentle wind and its delicate freshness act as a soothing caress and for nothing in the world I would wish to be elsewhere!

A dream spot to recharge your batteries in a contemporary spirit

While continuing to admire this exceptional panorama, I play the epicurean card without moderation and let myself be tempted by the signature dish of the chef of the O'Five restaurant. A very gourmet and warm meal with traditional Casoncelli, beef ravioli sautéed in butter, with bacon and sage

My night will be gentle and the sun's rays penetrating through the large windows of my room 475 give me energy to live another day of pure happiness. It is difficult to resist the call of the lake and the idea of a cruise from Versoix seems obvious to me. A few steps to reach the pier and my heading will be Yvoire, in neighbouring land!

Ode to the simple pleasures of life, the Lake Geneva Hotel, its terrace, its restaurant O'Five are the winning trio to discover the Lake Geneva beauties a stone's throw from Geneva.
