TOWN PRESENTATION

Excenevex is located in the heart of the Bay of Coudrée on the south shore of Lake Geneva, 395 m above sea level. Boasting an exceptional view of the Dent d'Oche, the Alps and the Swiss side, a natural sandy beach, it enjoys a strong tourist attraction around which historically focuses an important part of the economy local.

The village community of Excenevex developed on the site of an ancient Roman villa. The first mention of Excenevex as parish appears in 1250. Her story intersects with that of Yvoire until 1852, when a decree of the Episcopal Bishop of Annecy erects "the parish church Excenevex under distinct and separate from the rectory rectory of Yvoire." In 1904, the republican and anticlerical opposition wins in Excenevex. It was under his tenure that the Saint Symphorien is demolished. In 1920, Excenevex is given infrastructure that will serve as a basis for future development at the same time it is moving towards the high-end tourism with the construction of its luxury hotels: Hotel Bellevue, Hotel de la Plage Hotel du Lac Hotel Crest, Hotel Beau Rivage ... all built during the decade 1925-1935. The hotel from the beach and the hotel Bellevue testify to this past.

The first swimmers arrive with the Popular Front (1936), but it is the 50s and the early post-war boom that saw an increase in attendance of the range Excenevex. This jewel of the unique sandy shores of Lake Geneva, which extends over 4 hectares, gently sloping, will become the mandatory appointment and popular youth and families in Geneva from Evian. It is only hear fond memories evoking the golden period to measure the role played by the beach in Excenevex Chablaisian tourist history!

Paddle boats, swimming, perch fillets and chips and salad, sunburn, taverns, chilled rosé, beach games ... have experienced sustained success, heralding the latest and more "modern" provisions: beach volleyball, beach rugby, mussels and fries, lifeguard, access for people with reduced mobility, parking ...
