Saint-Julien-en-Genevois Details

Just on the border of Switzerland, about 9 kilometers from Geneva is the town of Saint-Julien-en-Genevois in the Haute Savoie region of France. Many of the residents in what is called by locals, Le Genevois, actually work and spend much of their time in Geneva and its surroundings, making an hotel in Le Genevois a great place to stay for daytrips into Switzerland.Plus, Saint-Julien-en-Genevois is in a particularly beautiful spot overlooking Lake Geneva and surrounded by the Jura, Saleve and Vuache mountains. It is famous for its countryside, and many visitors spend a lot of their time walking, skiing, or mountaineering, depending on the season. In the town itself, interesting sites include the church of Saint-Julien-en-Genevois, and the Palais de lIsle. This little palace sits on an island in the middle of the Thiou, a canal in Annecy. It was built in 1132 and is probably the most visited monument in the area. While in Annecy, also visit the Chateau dAnnecy and be sure to see the view of the Alps from its tower.
