Ville de Divonne-les-Bains, Divonne-les-Bains
(3.8/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
The water that once nurtured diamonds, now makes your body shine at the Ville de Divonne-les-Bains. The area once supported a diamond mining industry, but it was soon discovered that there were few diamonds and a great deal of hot springs. These thermal spring waters made Divonne a popular spa town in the 19th century; however, the city didn't begin to grow significantly until 1945. It remains a peaceful town of fewer than 8,000 inhabitants that relies on thermal springs for economy and good health.

  • Divonne is a small town on the border with Switzerland and is something of a dormitory suburb of Geneva, where ex-pats not wanting to settle outside the EU, to not lose pension savings. So prices there's no French and Swiss. In addition, a private cultural life Divonna pretty poor-at least compared to the nearby Swiss settlements. This is strange, because the city itself could be quite interesting: both the Castle and the beautiful Casino complex, and the Lake to the River, and a concert hall. Most of us remember visiting the hydroelectric power station of the beginning of the 20th century, recently restored volunteers-one of the first in France. It is next to the tourist office and is open on Tuesday and Sunday. In General, the city is more suited for a relaxing break or as a base for the surrounding area: the Jurassic mountains there are things to do in summer and winter.
