About La Grange d'Emnitan ...
Whether you are visiting Geneva on business and looking for an alternative to corporate hotels, or looking for a family holiday in an area packed with things to keep you busy, La Grange d'Emnitan is a great choice.
This stunning 5* semi-detached home, just 15 minutes from Geneva, has plenty to offer all year round - in winter the ski slopes of Crozet in the Jura mountains are just 10 minutes away, and in the summer, visit the beautiful villages around Lake Geneva, take a cruise on the lake to Montreux or enjoy a train ride along the water's edge to admire the views. If science is your thing, the home of the Large Hadron Collider, CERN, is just five minutes away - why not book a tour?
The house itself is perfectly equipped for family holidays, with two secure gardens, playroom and a home cinema. There is also a well-equipped gym with a running machine, rowing machine, an elliptical trainer, and a massage table. There are also two outdoor playgrounds nearby.
A house in the centre of a town might not seem the obvious choice for a holiday, but it's perfectly placed to enjoy this fascinating area, and after a day exploring, it's great to be able to put the car away and walk to local bars and restaurants for dinner or perhaps to the cinema or theatre for a show. There's also great public transport if you'd rather forget abut the car during your stay.
The property ...
This three-storey semi-detached home has plenty of room for up to 12 people, with four bedrooms as well as a mezzanine loft room designed for younger guests.
The main living area is on the ground floor, along with the home cinema and a games area. There's a cosy seating area around a beautiful suspended fireplace. Doors from here lead into the garden, which has a furnished terrace for al fresco meals, and a sail shade for sunny days. There's a step up to the well-equipped kitchen and dining area, where there's a table big enough to seat everyone together. There is also a toilet on this floor. Another outside area features a cosy seating area, a jacuzzi , and a swim spa - a large jacuzzi with a counter-current for swimming. There's also a lovely summer kitchen with plancha grill, which is perfect for making the most of long summer evenings.
There are four bedrooms on the first floor: two doubles and two twins, which can be arranged as double bedrooms. All of the bedrooms have televisions and plenty of storage. There's also a bathroon on this floor, with twin basins, a bath and a shower. There is a large loft room on the top floor with two sets of twin beds separated by a shower room. There are also gym and play areas with a television and games consoles. Please be aware the 4 single beds located on the mezzanine are in an open space together with the gym and the games room. Please refer to our photos.
The area ...
What ever time of year you decide to visit La Grange d'Emnitan, there will be plenty to explore. In the winter, the ski resort of Crozet is just 10 minutes away. Lifts link the area with Lélex where you will find a snowpark and more downhill runs.
In the summer, the Jura mountains are a popular playground for bikers and hikers, and there are several good golf courses within a few minutes' drive of the property. Lake Geneva is also a great summer destination, with spectacular waterside villages such as Yvoire, which sits on a peninsula jutting into the lake. If you don't fancy exploring on foot, take a train along the edge of the lake or catch a boat - paddle steamers and cruisers crisscross the lake to destinations such as Lausanne, Montreux or Evian-les-Bains.
In St-Genis-Pouilly itself, check out what is on at Palexpo - a huge exhibition centre which also hosts concerts and shows. CERN, the home of the Large Hadron Collider, is just s few minutes away - book in advance if you want a tour, or just explore Microcosm, the visitor centre with interactive displays.
There is plenty more to do in the area, including climbing, canyoning, via ferrata, fishing and hang-gliding. Visit the local tourism office for details of these activities and much more. The beautiful Medieval lakeside town of Annecy often referred to as the Venice of the Alps is a 50km drive away.
If you think you would enjoy a holiday that allows you to explore the city, the countryside and even the universe (at CERN), why not check our availability calendar and see when La Grange d'Emnitan is free? We can hold your dates for 24 hours if you like, so that you can check with the rest of your party. But don't wait too long - once the word is out, we're sure this property will be a big hit with OVO Network guests.
The OVO Network Review
“... close to Geneva Airport, CERN, Palexpo, Lake Geneva and the city itself. In winter, skiing in the Jura (accessed via Crozet) is a 15 minute drive away!”
La Grange d'Emnitan is a 5 bedroom, 2 bathroom property for 12 (max 9 adults) spread over 3 floors and 350m2 of floor space.
This unusual property is prefect for guests who need to be close to Geneva Airport, CERN , Palexpo, Lake Geneva, and the city itself. In winter, skiing in the Jura (accessed via Crozet) is a 10 minute drive away. The town of St Genis Pouilly is well served by public transport and feels completely different to downtown Geneva.
The property has been set up to suit the needs of those visiting Geneva on business, or for extended families or groups of friends wanting to spend time together without being on top of each other, all year round.
With secure gardens, electronic gates , an outside jacuzzi as well as a swimming jacuzzi, summer kitchen, outdoor lounge and dining areas out of doors, a gym, home cinema and games room indoors, there really is something to appeal to everyone!
The architecture and interiors are very contemporary, finishes are of good quality. The property is really well equipped. With the shops and facilities of St Genis Pouilly literally within a minutes walk what more could you wish for? The owners have brought up their own children at the property, families should check their younger children will manage the open tread stairs, steps down into the main ground floor living space, and the suspended contemporary fireplace.
For owners of electric cars there is even a charging point (Type 2) vehicles. Forget faceless hotel rooms, and come and enjoy Geneva and all the surrounding area has to offer from La Grange d'Emnitan instead!

From the Owner
The sense of light, the huge spaces, the peace and quiet just 15 minutes from Geneva...
“When we first visited this barn, which had been completely renovated by an architect a few years earlier, we immediately fell in love with it!
The sense of light, the huge spaces, its elegant style, the peace and quiet and the cosiness right in the centre of the village of Saint -Genis-Pouilly and just 15 minutes from Geneva, sealed the deal for us.
Being technology savvy, we automated the house, putting screens everywhere and even an iMac in the kitchen! The house is designed to look after itself - the shutters, curtains and Velux windows open and close according to a timer, the temperature and the amount of light. But of course, you can operate them yourself with the remote controls or the tablet.
We installed a hot tub with a swimming area. It’s a great way to warm yourself up after a day’s skiing in the winter, to relax after a long walk, or just to chill.
The house can accommodate up to 12 people (four couples and four children). The sleeping area on the mezzanine is very popular with children, who love having a “sleepover” there. There is also a games room with games consoles and a fitness area (with a rowing machine, a treadmill and an elliptical trainer) and a massage table.
We hope that you are as happy in this house as we are when we are there

“A great time at Enmitan and good skiing at Crozet”
We had a great time at the house. Very comfortable for our two families and the owners were of great hospitality.
We liked the space, the fireplace, the available equipment,and the jacuzzi.
We enjoyed great time skiing on the pistes of Crozet.

“ A fantastic experience”
What a FANTASTIC experience! The house is amazing, our expectations were already high based on the pictures and we were blown away when we got there... it's even nicer in reality!! The house is extremely comfortable, clean, open, with lots of different areas with plenty of things to entertain everyone, from kids to parents. All the technology offered in the house is a bonus: lots of Apple TVs in all rooms, wireless speakers throughout the house controlled by an iPad provided for the use of guests, electric blinds, an amazing outdoor Jacuzzi/swimming pool,... among others. Besides all that, our hosts were excellent, very responsive and helpful, offering much more than we asked for... They even arranged fondue and raclette for us! I strongly recommend it.

“A warm and cosy house”
A beautiful house with huge family spaces and other more cosy rooms. The atmosphere is really warm and friendly. We had an excellent holiday!

“An ideal place to stay”
We have returned totally delighted by our stay at this lovely house, which is surprisingly close to the centre of Geneva. Once we had passed through the gate which completely separates the house from the street, we were surprised to discover this huge high-tech home. Everything can be controlled remotely, from the fabulously well-equipped spacious kitchen to the blinds at the huge bay windows, which throw so much light onto this huge space. It’s like being in an American sci-fi movie! The Zen atmosphere reaches its peak when you bathe in the Jacuzzi, perfectly located in the wonderful garden. The many spacious bedrooms mean that everyone in the family or group of friends can find quiet and privacy. This village home just minutes from the Swiss capital is an ideal base for visiting the city or even organising walks in the surrounding mountains.
Marc G. - 01/07/2017
We had a magnificent holiday in this beautiful big house. The contemporary style and wonderful layout, as well as the bright and friendly atmosphere, meant that we could relax completely. The house is close to some great open spaces, as well as Geneva, which gave us the opportunity to explore the area and visit lots of places, such as the lake and its surroundings, the city and shops, the headquarters of the UN and a multitude of green spaces and lovely little restaurants. This whole set-up suited us perfectly - much better than an impersonal hotel room - and gave us the convenience of a really well equipped home. We all felt that you had provided a really luxurious holiday.

“We’d love to come back”
We spent several days in this spacious, peaceful home, which is tastefully decorated and just seven minutes from the foot of the lifts at Crozet - a lovely family ski station. We enjoyed sitting in the jacuzzi at the end of the day. The secure gate meant that the children were able to play out safely. Being so close to Geneva, staying at this house meant we could really enjoy all the Christmas festivities and decorations - wow! Congratulations on this lovely home and the welcome. This isn’t goodbye, it’s just au revoir - we’d love to come back in the summer and enjoy the terrace, the barbecue and the summer kitchen and pool!
