Coppet, a peaceful town on Lake Geneva with its for its castle, the former home of Madam de Staël

An attractive lakeside town, Coppet is known for its castle, the former home of Madam de Staël.

The mediaeval town of Coppet is full of architectural treasures of the Savoyard era; the ideal place for cultural tourism enthusiasts who can admire the temple, convent, Maison de Meézières and Maison Michel, housing the Musée du Vieux-Coppet, as they stroll along Grand-Rue.

Coppet Castle owes its renown to the fact that it was bought in 1784 by Necker, Louis XVI's finance minister. His daughter, Germaine de Staël, inherited the castle and invited the European intellectual elite of the 19th century there. Still lived in by Mme de Staël's descendents, Coppet Castle is only private castle in the region open to the public. There are guided tours from spring to autumn and the castle's cellars can be rented for exclusive events.

On the shores of Lake Geneva, Coppet is a beautiful, peaceful place to be. At its harbour, tourists can board a modern or Belle Epoque boat operated by the Swiss compagny CGN (Compagnie Générale de Navigation) for a romantic cruise on Lake Geneva.
