Fodor's Review

With its lakefront setting, small port, lawns for sunbathing, and pier, the endearing village of Céligny provides the best swimming opportunities for miles around. The enclave, 6 km (4 miles) north of Coppet, is wholly charming: rows of vineyards, a historic (but private) château and church, and a village square adorned with flowers and a stone fountain. Richard Burton made his home here during the last years of his life. You can visit the village cemetery, where you'll find Burton's simple grave in the smaller area, hugging the edge of the forest.
