The charming village of Châtel is also perfect for just pottering around or taking out a pedalo on the Lac de Vonnes. Evian and Thonon-les-Bains are only 40 minutes away and from there you can go to the beach at Lake Geneva or take boat trips around the lake and visit places such as Geneva, Montreux, and Lausanne. Or if you just feel like relaxing to the peaceful sound of the River Dranse flowing down to Lake Geneva, you can chill out at the chalet and read a book on the terrace or sunbathe in the garden.
