La Maison du Salève

Enter the World of Nature at "La maison du Salève".

A warm welcome to everyone curious to find out more about this extraordinary mountain: Le Salève.

Welcome home to our Maison!

Come and enjoy nature and get to know the Salève.

Between Geneva and Annecy, the Maison du Salève welcomes you to our rural setting in Présilly, at the foot of the Salève. An old farm dating from the 18th century, the Maison du Salève used to belong to the nearby monastery, Chartreuse de Pomier. A typical example of Genevan architecture, in 2007 it became a lively cultural space dedicated to the Salève, the mythical mountain in the Monts de Genève .
With interactive exhibitions, activities in the heart of nature, guided tours, conferences and discovery walks, the Maison allows you to discover the many stories of the mountain through fun, immersive experiences. Come along for a visit with family or friends and recharge your batteries in the heart of nature!
