  • Prices a bit high, but good place to park without problems.
  • Port D'Ouchy itself is a magnificent place. We went on a Sunday-- so clean, serene, the views of Geneva Lake and nearby France are spectacular. There is also a park and a nice view of Chateau D'Ouchy from behind. Good for picnics.
  • Very nice place
  • Very well located, near the motorway exit and close to metro. The price for the day is reasonable and offers besides the ticket for public transport.

  • Good parking offers space but very expensive. It is better to park a little further and pay less.
