The Rhone/French Alps region
Thollon-les-Mémises lies in Eastern France in the French Alps. It is a pretty village in the most traditional Alpine style, and views are stunning whether it's winter or summer. The village is known as the Balcony of the Léman, due to its location overlooking the beautiful, Lake Geneva. The views from Thollon-les-Mémises are so glorious that they are actually mentioned in the Michelin Guide, which is quite an accolade for such a small village!
Down on the lakeside, Geneva, Montreaux and Lausanne are all reachable within the hour, by car or boat. The spa town of Evian (10 minute drive) has numerous beaches, a fantastic outdoor swimming complex housing a 50 meter outdoor pool, play areas, golf, boat hire , traditional outdoor markets and, of course, the thermal spa and casino. It also has some excellent restaurants.
Also close by, on the Swiss Lakeside, is the ‘Vapeur Park’, (model railway) large Aquaparc, zoo and Labyrinth Park to name but a few. There really is so much to do, yet it is also very easy to sit back ,relax and savour the glorious views.

"Superb apartment, will struggle to find one more comfortable."
Stayed at Lake View Feb 14 and all we can say is that it was excellent and a great place to relax after skiing. Great views over Lake Geneva, easy to find, restaurants & supermarket less than a few minutes walk away, 5minute walk to gondola. No complaints at all. Great having the garage. Skiing at Thollon was excellent & great value for money but it is also a great base for trying out other ski areas especially Bernex & Chapel.

"Luxury and comfort, fabulous views and skiing convenience!"
Having looked at other apartments in the area we were delighted with the space and comfort that this offered. A true home from home with three good sized double bedrooms and two well appointed bathrooms. The highlight is the living space on the upper floor with comfortable furnishings for relaxing and plenty of space for sociable gatherings. From the balcony there are magnificent views over lake Geneva to Lausanne.
All furnishings and fittings are of a high standard and on our arrival the property was well prepared and very clean.
The property is in an excellent location, very close to the small but well stocked supermarket, bars and lift station. The smaller ski area gave our teenagers the independence to explore on their own and there is a good selection of other ski resorts within easy travelling distance. For non skiers the nearby town of Evian, on the lakeside, is a lovely alternative with excellent spa facilities.
