This stunning 5* semi-detached home, just 15 minutes from Geneva has plenty to offer all year round - in winter the ski slopes of Crozet in the Jura mountains are just 10 minutes away, and in the summer, visit the beautiful villages around Lake Geneva, take a cruise on the lake to Montreux or enjoy a train ride along the water's edge to admire the views. If science is your thing, the home of the Large Hadron Collider, CERN, is just five minutes away - why not book a tour?
The house itself is perfectly equipped for family holidays, with two secure gardens, playroom and a home cinema. There is also a well equipped gym with a running machine, rowing machine, an elliptical trainer, and a massage table. There are also two outdoor playgrounds nearby.
A house in the centre of a town might not seem to be the obvious choice for a holiday, but it's perfectly placed to enjoy this fascinating area, and after a day exploring, it's great to be able to put the car away and walk to local bars and restaurants for dinner or perhaps to the cinema or theatre for a show. There's also great public transport if you'd rather forget abut the car during your stay.
This three-storey semi-detached home has plenty of room for up to 12 people, with four bedrooms as well as a mezzanine loft room. (Please be aware that the 4 of the single beds are located on the mezzanine in an open space together with the gym and the games room. Please refer to our photos and floorplan).
The main living area is on the ground floor, along with the home cinema and a games area. There's a cosy seating area around a beautiful suspended fireplace. Elegant doors from here lead into the garden, which has a furnished terrace for al fresco meals, and a sail shade for sunny days. There's a step up to the well-equipped kitchen and dining area, where there's a table big enough to seat everyone together. There is also a toilet on this floor. Another outside area features a cosy seating area, a jacuzzi and a swim spa - a large jacuzzi with a counter-current for swimming. There's also a lovely summer kitchen with plancha grill, which is perfect for making the most of long summer evenings.
There are four bedrooms on the first floor: two doubles and two twins, which can be arranged as double bedrooms. All of the bedrooms have televisions and plenty of storage. There's also a bathroom on this floor, with twin basins, a bath and a shower. The second floor is a large loft room with two sets of twin beds separated by a shower room. There are also gym and play areas with a television and games consoles. Please aware that 4 of the single beds are located on the mezzanine in an open space together with the gym and the games room. Please refer to our photos and floorplan.
ABOUT THE AREA ...
What ever time of year you decide to visit La Grange d'Emnitan, there will be plenty to explore. In the winter, the ski resort of Crozet is just 10 minutes away. Lifts link the area with Lélex where you will find a snowpark and more downhill runs.
In the summer, the Jura mountains are a popular playground for bikers and hikers, and there are several good golf courses within a few minutes' drive of the property. Lake Geneva is also a great summer destination, with spectacular waterside villages such as Yvoire, which sits on a peninsula jutting into the lake. If you don't fancy exploring on foot, take a train along the edge of the lake or catch a boat - paddle steamers and cruisers crisscross the lake to destinations such as Lausanne, Montreux or Evian-les-Bains.
In St-Genis-Pouilly itself, check out what is on at Palexpo - a huge exhibition centre which also hosts concerts and shows. CERN, the home of the Large Hadron Collider, is just a few minutes away - book in advance if you want a tour, or just explore Microcosm, the visitor centre with interactive displays.
There is plenty more to do in the area, including climbing, canyoning, via ferrata, fishing and hang-gliding. Visit the local tourism office for details of these activities and much more. The beautiful Medieval lakeside town of Annecy often referred to as the Venice of the Alps is a 50km drive away.
