Charming Swiss town near Geneva?

Jump to last reply

I will be traveling solo to the French Alps in early October and after a very busy week there, I'll be dropped off in Geneva on a Saturday morning. I am now thinking of spending 4 nights in Switzerland before I return home to Canada on the Wednesday morning. I am not too excited about staying in Geneva, and would love a small town nearby to mainly relax and take in some of the lovely scenery.

Here are the facts:
- Traveling solo
- 4 nights (arrive Geneva Saturday around noon, depart Geneva Wednesday am)
- Traveling by train and will need to be able to get to the Geneva airport by Wednesday 10:30 am. Flights are NOT booked yet, so I would be open to leaving from Zurich, but this seems a bit further than I want to go.

I am OK switching after 2 nights, and I am looking for a place that is cozy and pretty, which I imagine is most of Switzerland. I would be OK sitting with a good book in front of a magnificent view, eating good food and doing a bit of shopping. Not into hiking. Max budget around $400 per night.

Any suggestions? I'm well traveled in Europe (13 countries so far) and am usually up for fast paced and lots of major sites and activities, but for this leg of the trip I'm looking mainly for relaxation. If anyone has specific hotels or resorts they stayed at and loved, I'd appreciate if you shared.

Thanks in advance!
