What's Evian-les-Bains Like?
The discovery of the natural springs in the 19th century made Evian-les-Bains into a fashionable mountain resort. The first spa baths were built in 1824 and the architecture of the town is a delight. Highlights include the Cachat pump room, once the center of social life in the spa, with its striking tiled cupola and curved window, decorated in the Art Nouveau style. The lakeside Palais Lumiere is another early 19th-century former spa building with an ornate interior, stained glass, a square tower, and glass dome. The casino and theater are stylish examples of 19th-century design. The streets of the old town are attractive, lined with high-end stores, and cafes offering lake views. In summer, a funicular climbs the slope between the pump room and the lakeside. The fountain next to the marina offers a spectacular choreographed music and light show during the summer months. Boat trips on the lake visit the Swiss towns of Lausanne, Montreux, Vevey and Chillon. Evian-les-Bains hotels offer the ideal base for exploring the Alpine region around the lake.
