“Not a lot to look at, but historic all the same”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

The source of Evian water and right here you can fill your own empties for free. Not exactly a great day out, but a nice diversion!

“Not much to see”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

This seems to be a marketing office more than anything else. They have interactive exhibits on how the water originates gets filtered through and shipped. Apparently the bottling plant is about 5 miles away. We did not find it terribly exciting.

“free evian :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

it is very nice to drink from the evian source directly. the water tastes delicious and cold.
you will see people bringing their empty bottles to fill them up with evian water.
sometimes you will have to wait in a long queue but it worth to try ;)

“Original Evian water spa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

The building is a beautiful example of art deco.There is an interesting presentation about the history of Evian water and visits to the modern bottling factory in Amphion can be booked. Behind the building is one of Evian's three Evian water sources where you can fill your empty bottles with genuine Evian spa water

“the spring waters of Evian”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

While evian is sold world over as unique mineral water with medicinal properties, in the town of Evian itself, the Source is one forgotten spot visited only by tourists. Most of the locals are also barely aware of the location! We looked twice, before believing that a little tap in a residential area is the source of Evian :)
