About The Hôtel du Parc des Eaux-Vives

Hôtel du Parc des Eaux-Vives was originally established as an estate in 1565 by the Lord of Bellerive, Aime Plonjon. In 1750, the estate’s mansion was built, positioned to overlook the beautiful views of Lake Geneva. Then, in 1913, the municipality of Eaux-Vives purchased the entire park, including the mansion, which by that point was home to a lovely restaurant. Today, it is a charming destination amidst centuries-old sequoias, rhododendrons, and a sweet freshwater cascade. It’s home to 7 cozy and elegant rooms and suites, the renowned restaurant La Terrasse du Parc, and plenty of space to host a beautiful and romantic gathering. 

Just a little way down the road, du Parcs des Eau-Vives has a sister property, the historic Hotel Metropole, that offers stunning views of Lake Geneva, overlooks lush English gardens, and offers plenty of extra space for guests looking for a remarkable place to stay while in town to celebrate your wedding. 

Details of the Grounds

The Hôtel du Parc des Eaux-Vives is home to 4 private salons that can accommodate celebrations between 15 and 400 people. 

Like all of the event spaces, The Salon Leman is on the ground floor of the mansion. It is the largest reception room that overlooks spectacular views of the lake and the Jura mountain range. Walls of windows let in an abundance of natural light. Meanwhile, surrounding greenery livens the bright space with a natural feel. The room also connects with the Petit, Rouge, and Anglais salons, accommodating groups of up to 120 people for a seated celebration. 

The Salon Rouge is an intimate space lavishly decorated in the Belle Epoque style. It has a lovely view of the park and accommodates anywhere from 15 to 70 people. But that depends on your setup. The Salon Anglais is an elegant space with a large fireplace, historic architectural details, and lots of bright, natural light. It can accommodate up to 40 guests for a lunch or sit-down dinner on its own. Last but not least, the Petite Salon is the perfect way to increase space for your event. Located in the midst of the Leman, Rouge, and Anglais salons, they only book in conjunction with one of the other spaces.
