About the property

Charming duplex apartment (+ 2 bedrooms upstairs for 4 to 5 people)

Sunny double exposure, sun of the Levant and the West, for this 'cozy' apartment located on two levels of a traditional fishing house of the village. It was completely restored in spring 2014 with great benefits in the spirit of the old village houses of fishermen of Lake Geneva ...

Today the house is charming and really nice!

Ideally situated on the shores of Lake Geneva overlooking the lake, renting is just minutes pontoons and boats from the marina of Thonon-les-Bains, in the historical and cultural site Rives, a few steps from the beaches and water sports (sailing, canoeing and kayaking, water skiing, boat rental, fishing ...) and not far from the spa waters of Thonon.

You will have the choice of swimming in the lake: side lawns and children's games with the Municipal beach at the end of the docks, or side rollers and setting sun on the beautiful shore of the Pine ..., or on the other side pontoons along the shoreline of Lake Geneva.

The house, located in the village of Rives on the hill, is also close to the town center of Thonon-les-Bains, just a short walk up and located right at the top of the funicular.

In the apartment, a South West facing balcony allows diners facing the sunset outside on the terrace, and offers pleasant moments very sunny day.

- a deposit of 1000euros is requested on the spot by check.

Pretty French house

  • 4 of 5

This is a small property decorated in a very French style with plenty of additional bowls, cutlery, kitchen equipment etc used by the owner. It's an old property and the staircase is steep- we came down backwards for safety.

The location is fantastic, half way between the main town on Thonon on the hill and the port of Rives by the lake. It's 5 to 10 mins walk to each of them but the hill is very steep.

The whole area is very beautiful with views of the lakes and mountains. There is a pay beach for swimming but we walked beyond that and could get access to the lakeside. The weather was very hot and we swam in the lake several times.

Maison charmante dans quartier pittoresque

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une très agréable semaine dans cette location coquette, décorée avec goût, dans l'ancien quartier des pêcheurs. A pied, le port est à 5mn, tout comme le centre-ville: attention, ça grimpe... mais le funiculaire n'est pas loin! Du balcon, vue sur le soleil couchant, les toits et le Léman... Superbe...La région est fantastique, entre lac et montagne, les activités sont nombreuses. A savoir: la location n'a pas de parking et les places sont (parfois) difficiles à trouver. Mais une fois garé, quel plaisir de remonter tranquillement à la maison, en longeant le lac et en passant par le port! Pour finir, l'accueil de Corinne est très sympathique, et il lui tient à coeur que ses hôtes passent de belles vacances: c'est ce que nous avons fait! Merci et à bientôt!

Thanks to the mild climate on the shores of Lake Geneva, summer, even when it is hot, becomes tempered by the possibilities of water activities and swimming in the clear water of Lake Geneva, facing the shores of Switzerland . The lake's summer water temperature is of the order of 22 degrees, for gentle bathing and yet refreshing when it is very hot.

Quiet and picturesque, ancient cottage restored fishing is a popular place of residence on Lake Geneva ...

It is accessed via an outside staircase and the apartment consists of 2 independent floors is bright, quiet, sunny and very pleasant!

Stay in this former fisherman's house provides easy access to all outdoor activities and swimming, with or without children, and many walks on nearby cultural and historic sites.

The pier is a few minutes in low-cons of the house and offers beautiful crossings of Lake Geneva by boat to Evian on the French bank or to Lausanne and Montreux on the shores Switzerland.

The landscapes are beautiful ...

One of the other advantages of the holiday village of Rives is that you can do everything on foot ... because the house is located between the lake and the city center of Thonon.

It is also possible to access by car down to the port of Rives then back down to the street to possibly Fishermen unload cases before the house. Free parking in public parks are available within 5 minutes walk.

Restaurants facing the marina are located on the shady square of the port 5 minutes walk down against the village of Rives.

The house is quietly located in the village on the hill of the city, along the great and beautiful Lake Geneva ...
