Although very close to the city centre, Champel exudes calm and tranquility. This chic area is renowned for its bourgeois buildings and villas. It overlooks the cliffs of the Arve; in some places, there are magnificent views of the Salève and the Jura, while the sports fields of the "Bout du monde" complex, which are a delight for keen runners, are also nearby. The area also boasts one of the largest green spaces in Geneva, the Parc Bertrand, and is very close to the hospital. The future opening of the CEVA "Champel-Hôpital" station is expected to bring a new wave of activity to what is still a quiet neighbourhood.
