Welcome to the Chablais region

The Chablais region is the first chain in Pre-Alps mountains between Lake Geneva and the Mont-Blanc mountain range. Its mountains are home to forests, alpine pastures and winter sports resorts.

The lower Chablais country or “Pays du Léman” forms an amphitheater that gradually rises behind the 50 kilometers of lakeside on the French side of Lake Geneva; Evian and Thonon mineral waters take their source at the heart of these ancient glacial deposits.

Lake Geneva is so big that it influences the climate of the whole of this region; it has been the center of major historical struggles between Geneva and the Savoy House, whose court resided at Ripaille at the start of the XVth Century, before choosing to reform and gradually improving relations with the Bernois.

The Chablais province, part of the Savoy region, which itself only became part of France in 1860, is on the outskirts of the region and remains highly influenced by the proximity of Geneva and the Swiss cantons.

The “Chablais Heritage” Association aims to help visitors discover the wealth and diversity of the Lake Geneva region’s cultural, historical and natural heritage.
