Animals at the Bains

Unfortunately domestic pets are not allowed on the site.

The Bay of Geneva, located on the major route of the great migrations, is a site that offers a great diversity of species of birds.

Les Bains is a privileged place to observe scaup, gulls, seagulls, gray herons and large cormorants, as well as all this exceptional migratory poultry fauna, according to the seasons.
