The village of Nernier is known as “La Perle du Léman”. It sits right on the French shores of the lake, with its own pebble beach. Its harbour has been welcoming fishermen and pleasure craft owners for generations. It has several popular restaurants and bars, as well as a public barbecue area and newly renovated children’s play area with stunning views over the harbour and lake.

During the summer months, the commuter boat to Nyon, across the lake in Switzerland, docks in Nernier. For the rest of the year, frontalier workers cycle or drive the short distance to neighbouring Yvoire to catch the boat. The crossing takes just 20 minutes.

Geneva is only around 30-40 minutes away by car (around 23 km).

Thanks to the proximity to Switzerland, Nernier is very multi-cultural. Whilst the population is only around 500, there is a wonderful mix of residents from all corners of the globe.

Children from Nernier go to school in the neighbouring village of Messery, where the maternelle and primaire schools have an excellent reputation. A full range of amenities can also be found in Messery: a well-stocked small supermarket, two bakeries, a butcher, two hairdressers, a beautician, a doctor’s surgery, pharmacy, library, tourist office, as well as a bar and restaurants.
