“for the tourist who wants to surrender to rest”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

the artificial lake with a large lawn with trees and plants, where children play free, lovers kiss, friends laugh together. A clean, quiet and well organized town, with flowers on the edge of the streets. The casino. A few nice restaurant with the usual French cuisine. Divonne is a good town for those who want a peaceful life and for the tourist who wants to surrender to rest.

“Lovely French Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

The charm is small but charming. Although it has fame for its baths which might beckon travelers, it is simply a charming, authentically French place to stay. Stroll the market downtown. Stop at any one of the cafes. The number of restaurants is limited, but still offers decent variety. We were there for just one night, the night before flying out of Geneva. However, we found the town charming and inviting enough to return.

“Fantastic market on Sunday!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

I have not seen all there is to see in Divonne yet, but the small lake is lovely and the Sunday market is going to have to be on your to-do list when you visit the area! There are a lot of funky galleries and really nice little restaurants all over the place, too... Great weekend destination!

“Nice quiet town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

A nice rural area close to Geneva. If you prefer to stay in a quiet place - it is a place to be. There are nice cafes and restaurants, a supermarket and a nice castle (hotel and restaurant) built on a hill.

“Mignonne”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

Adorable little village right off the Swiss boarder. On sundays there is a market that has great produce, cheeses and anything else you would want! The supermarket is open on sundays too.
