Geneva a unique city

Geneva is a swiss hometown located on the shore of Lake Léman. Surrounded by the Jura mountains and the Alps, the city offers exceptional views on the Mont-Blanc. Divided into districts, the city is full of places, each one more surprising than the last. From the old town with the majestic Cathédrale Saint-Pierre to the vibrant Eaux Vives neighbourhood and its amazing view on the iconic Jet d’Eau… Geneva reveals itself by inspiring landscapes and cosmopolite influences.

Home of the United Nation and the Red Cross headquarters, Geneva is a global centre for diplomacy as well as the banking sector. Throughout the years, thanks to its watchmaking heritage, Geneva also succeeds by being ranked in the number one position within the luxury industry and the Haute Horlogerie/Jewellery.

At the heart of all those influences, our spacious, luminous and equipped studios and apartments are located between the famous Plainpalais district and the Carouge city, two neighbourhood famous for their good restaurants, and excursions of all kinds.
