"The best lake house on the Geneva lake!"

I've been to Barbara's house a couple of times in the last 2 years, also before she put the "Maison Magellan" on TripAdvisor. The place is amazing, the house is really beautiful and the vicinity to the water course and the lake let you feel like you don't want to go away from there anymore. It's just great to sunbathe on one of the balconies, to enjoy a fresh drink and to overlook the Swiss Alps as well as the boats which are swaying in the wind. The house is well equipped with anything you need. I really like the kitchen with the steamer. I cooked the most the delicious "Moules Marinières" over there... The surroundings offer anything you need - I especially like the weekly market with crusty farmhouse bread and fresh vegetables. Barbara and her daughter Bettina are reallly welcoming hosts and will not let you miss anything during your stay! Actually, I can't wait to be there again this July, although it's just for 1 week.
