“I went on an outing with my friends which I thought was ‘awesome’! To sum up: keep going, more please!”
Immerse yourself in the world of street art!
Enjoy this gentle artistic, gourmet trip in the heart of our beautiful cross-border region!
Collect your bike at 10.00 am with Bruno from Geneva Cycling in Annemasse and gear up before heading off to Geneva.
Head for the Grand Genève greenway to reach the Plage des Eaux Vives. This is a route reserved for green modes of transport between Annemasse and Geneva.
You can travel at your own pace, be that in ‘chill’ mode or something more energetic. Don’t forget to look up from your handlebars. Not too far ahead, Le Salève rises up before you, with the Jura mountains in the distance.
Lake Geneva comes into view. It’s time to get out the picnic. Your stomach must be grumbling! Have you remembered to bring a blanket? You can settle down beside the lake or beside the park – the choice is yours.
Once the meal is over, you’ll even have time for a dip or a nap in the soft sunshine. Can you hear the gentle sound of the famous water jet in the distance?
Having lazed about, it’s now time to get back in the saddle and reach the starting point of the walk. We have a little surprise waiting for you!
Did you know that street art is very much in evidence in Geneva?
Let’s explore paths, bridges and other hidden places in the city, from the alternative district of Les Grottes to the banks of the Rhône and Arve rivers.
Let’s go and see them together with ‘Genève par cher’. Find out about their history and try and decipher the meaning behind the graffiti and mural paintings decorating walls in the city. It’s really unexpected, isn’t it?
To continue the walk, now head for the terraces on the Le Seujet buildings. A superb panoramic view over the Rhône and the city roofs stretches out before you!
The day isn’t over, but it’s time to return to Annemasse. Return your bike, Bruno is waiting for you in the square. Are you ready for what’s next?
Five minutes is all you’ll need to cross the Chablais Parc eco district, and then you’re there. Casa Ernesto is ready to take you on a culinary journey!
The huge map of the world on the wall instantly sets the scene. With a warm and welcoming atmosphere, laughter, shakers in action…let the team welcome you in their own style! It’s always very relaxed and informal here. You’ll feel right at home.
Having just sat down, with the menu already in your hands, it’s time to awaken your taste buds. Enjoy savouring the glass of flavoured water which has been brought to you. The flavour of this house speciality is changed very regularly. Take the first sip. What flavours are in there? Do you like them?
Let’s get down to business and tuck into a marinated beef tataki and a Corben cocktail. The exotic flavours of ginger, mango and Cachaça will whisk you away to Brazil.
The day is coming to an end. It has been full of discovery on both sides of the border and you’ve experienced a colourful and flavourful world.
See you soon for your next trip!
