Geneva, Switzerland

Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues Geneva has launched a range of summer activities to allow guests to fully experience Switzerland’s second city while taking in the beauty of the surrounding alpine landscape. Home to picturesque villages, turquoise lakes and verdant meadows, Switzerland is the perfect summer holiday destination. Temperatures are mild, with warm days and cool nights.

Set on the tranquil shores of Lake Geneva, Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues offers the perfect base to reconnect with friends and family. The Hotel is ideally located to explore Geneva Old Town, the country’s largest historic centre, home to impressive sights, lively restaurants, and open-air cafes with tables spilling out onto verdant squares. The city’s pretty cobbled streets and shaded avenues are lined with historic boutiques showcasing Swiss craftsmanship, while a panoramic lakeside promenade offers sublime views of Europe’s largest lake. Dotted along the lakeshore are charming villages lined with traditional timber chalets, with bright red geraniums tumbling out of neat rows of window boxes. Elegant wooden boats zip across the deep blue waters, while breezy lakefront restaurants serve up light al fresco dishes prepared with local ingredients.

Upon request, the Concierge at Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues can organise a range of exhilarating water sports for guests to fully experience the lake in summer. Wakeboarding and waterskiing at sunrise offer the perfect opportunity to take in the beauty and stillness of the lake, while stand-up paddle boarding makes for the perfect morning workout. Amateur and experienced swimmers can gain more confidence in the water, practising breath control and swimming techniques with the Hotel’s experienced instructors. Guests can also fully experience the beauty of the lake aboard an elegant sailing boat on a half or full day trip.

The Hotel’s exclusive al fresco spaces are perfect to make the most of the long summer days and mild evenings. At Michelin-starred restaurant Il Lago, Chef Massimiliano Sena creates seasonal Italian dishes with a contemporary twist, while trendy rooftop restaurant Izumi serves inventive Nikkei cuisine on a panoramic terrace offering gorgeous views of the city skyline and the glistening waters of Lake Geneva. On the summer terrace of Bar des Bergues, expert mixologists serve creative cocktails in a convivial and laid back setting on leafy Place des Bergues.

Perfect for couples or families, the Hotel’s rooms and suites artfully blend traditional and contemporary décor, and boast stunning lake views. Spread out over the top two floors of the Hotel, Spa Mont Blanc is a haven of peace, with large windows commanding panoramic views of Geneva and the surrounding mountains. As well as offering a wide range of rejuvenating facial and body treatments, the Spa organises a variety of open-air fitness activities, including morning yoga sessions led by an expert yogi on the Hotel rooftop, energising training sessions in Parc de la Grange on the shores of the lake, and panoramic hikes to the summit of Mont Salève.
