"Why live in Geneva when...." Gex by Kiriel

Gex Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 3 photos

You could live in Gex!

Ok, so Gex isn't the most exciting town on the planet. Few people beyond those that live there even know of its existence. But it does have some excellent redeeming features. For a start.. the views. Check these photos out, views of the mountains surrounding Mont Blanc taken out of the window of the apartment I was staying in.

You don't get much better than this do you?

What is more, Gex is close enough to Geneva to make it commutable, so you can enjoy the pleasures of France while getting the pay of Switzerland. ;-)

Gex is also very near to the Snowfields of the Jura. In winter you can just pop up the road to enjoy a ski or walk through the stunning scenery.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Lovely countryside and views
  • Cons:Quiet as a ghost town at times

    I may choose to study in Genève and I was worrying about the Swiss prices, but JLBG advised me I'd live in Gex and study in Genève. I see you are of the same opinion. Nice photos!

    Hi Kiriel. i just returned from a trip to France and Switzerland, and happened to spend a day/night in Gex. I'm happy you've got a Gex page, as it was a beautiful town and you are right - not too many people know of its' existence! April
