I was fortunate enough to live here for 1 year and really loved it! It's the first petite ville across the border from Switzerland and is quite charming. It's small, but has everything you need. There is a lovely market every Saturday morning in the center of town that is a great experience! It's a quiet town, but there are plenty of cafe's to sit and read a book or people watch at. Not that Geneva is an intense city, but it is a nice area to feel like you're in the countryside. There are beautiful hiking trails nearby! This is also where famous French writer Voltaire resided at a time in his life, you can visit his chateau sitting just above the town.
