    Trying to put together an easter break. Flying into Geneva, got some bits to do there, then was hoping to spend a few days in Centre Parcs.

    Fly in the ointment - the closest one to Geneva is nearly 6 hours drive.

    Anyone got suggestions for a Centre Parcs style place, ideally within 2-3 hours drive of Geneva?
     
  2. 2-3 hrs drive in which direction from GVA?
     
  3. I think you could get to Dachau in 3 hours.

    Any, put preferably towards France.
     
  5. Well, no centre parc(-k)s in Switzerland anyway.

    Thing is that you will find lots of similar places in France, Marriott operates and outlet that works along the same lines (2-4 bedroom villas, swimming pool, activities etc). I find it difficult to respond to your question as you don't seem to indicate any particular area of preference. You can do anything from the French Alps and onwards to Milan to Colmar near Strasbourg, Lyon, Dijon and everything in between.
     
  6. chamonix on the beer is pretty decent

    That's what I wanted to here (the Marriott bit).

    There isn't really any area of preference. Will go wherever as long as its within the 2-3 hours drive. Was hoping to be pointed in the direction of a Centre Parcs similar brand that has resorts closer to GVA.
