What you'll do

We will discover a hidden spot near Geneva and eat fondue like a local Swiss. You will learn the secrets of traditional cheese fondue.

Our meeting point will be a picnic area in Versoix, the neighbor town of Geneva. This is a wonderful Natural Reserve area of Douves.

In this place, it is possible to observe different kinds of animals in nature. We will have a lovely walk in the forest for about45 minutes and after that, we will settle ourselves in the picnic area (covered) and start to prepare the fondue. I will teach you how Swiss locals prepare traditional fondue. We will eat our fondue outside in the fresh air.

While enjoying our fondue and local Swiss wine, we will chat about daily life in Switzerland.

We will end our lunch/dinner with a small dessert.

I can speak English, French, Italian, and German. If you cannot find any time or date that suits you, please contact me for other options.

Where you'll be

We will visit Réserve Naturelle Les Douves near Geneva. This is a special place that my daughters love. Being a natural reserve, it is possible to see and observe many different kinds of animals (according to the season) like birds, deers, frogs, ducks, and trees.

Wonderful way to spend the afternoon in Geneva especially if you are fondue lover like we are. Just a short train trip away from city center and we met Raphael who took us to the near park of Douves. We had a walk around the park while chatting with Raphael and comparing the two countries and habits. We continued walking around the area while Raphael prepared us a delicious fondue and served some wine. This was really worth the money and great option for enjoying fondue lunch in beautiful surroundings!
