We were staying in Montreux, and Lake Geneva was beautiful. We enjoyed strolls along the lakefront promenade. The sunset views were simply breathtaking!

There is so much to do on this Lake it would take a year to explore it all. For beginners I recommend a boat tour of one hour leaving in downtown Geneva. It's only 16 euros and the views of Mont Blanc are incredible.

The real Geneva is at the lake. Amazing natural beauty, very clean and serene place. A must visit place in Geneva. It offers a cruise boat trip. Very close to railway station, just 5 minutes walk.

The lake is so large and beautiful. A ferry tour around the lake is one way to see the beauty. Along the shoreline, the view is just as fantastic.

I don't know the place you name, try and contact them to have an answer (or find that place on Trip, here the topic is the Geneva Lake).
