Raclette and fondue evening at the Germagny dairy!

As all cheese-lovers know, there is nothing like a good raclette evening to warm the cockles of your heart and have a good time with your friends.

If at any point in your stay in Monts de Genève, the Alpine scenery gives you an irresistible urge for melted cheese accompanied by good cold meats, head for the Germagny dairy.

Between Viry and Valleiry and just down the road from the French-Swiss broder, the Germagny dairy has been the local benchmark for speciality cheeses since 1850. It is a delicatessen for regional products, a dairy and a restaurant rolled into one, where you can sample the finest in mountain cuisine.

The hidden gem at this emblematic location in the Haute-Savoie region is the Kota Grill. This fully privatised wood chalet offers an inviting mountain atmosphere where 4-10 people can enjoy a memorable raclette evening together.

Here, cheese is the star of the show, and local products the supporting act. Turn up with friends, colleagues or family when you’re really hungry and sit down at the round table. Is your mouth already watering? The menu itself is a real treat for cheese fanatics! Tuck into a home-made raclette or fondue, a barbeclette, a Simmental steak or any one of many other gourmet specialities. The products are fresh and authentic. You can use the grills to cook your own steak and melt your cheese.

Over and above the pleasure of dining, conviviality is at its peak: anecdotes from the ski slopes are shared, old mountain memories resurface and belly laughs ring out.

How could you resist this rustic getaway with the sublime flavours of Savoyard cheese?
