The medieval village of Nernier, on the French shores of Lac Leman (Lake Geneva), is also known as "La Perle du Leman".
The beach, decked jetty for sunbathing and swimming, bars, restaurants and art galleries, all combine to create a real holiday atmosphere every day of the week, but without the crowds. Winter walks along the lake with the snow-capped mountains of the Jura in view.
The community is a real melting pot of nationalities, where French locals, whose families have been in the village for generations, give a warm welcome to expats from all corners of the globe. Residents commute on a daily basis to Geneva by road, and by ferry to Nyon, Switzerland, directly opposite on the other side of the lake.
Ferry services run from the neighbouring village of Yvoire all year round, with some ferries also stopping in Nernier itself in spring and summer.
Transport links: - 25km by road to central Geneva (Pont du Mont Blanc). - 30km by road to Geneva International Airport. - 2.5km from neighbouring village of Yvoire (cycle path recently created). - 20-minute ferry journey to Nyon, Switzerland.
