Veyrier is Geneva’s answer to the countryside. This chic town of many villas that includes the localities of Sierne, Vessy and Pinchat begins at the end of the Route de Florissant. On the land at the foot of the Salève, market gardening and agricultural activity are important and many producers there sell directly from their farms. In the Grand Donzel sports centre, the town enjoys a vast complex combining tennis, football and beach volleyball. On the practical side, Veyrier has several primary schools, and its generous public transport links get you to the city centre within 15 minutes.
