Cost of Living in Geneva (Dollars) [family of five]

Hi there!
I'm thinking to go live in Geneva although I'm not sure when that will happen yet.
Anyone please would advise about the approximate amount of dollars a family of five would need to live in that city.
Thanks a lot!

sounds about right ... we are a family of 5 moving to Geneva soon and that is 190 to 200k is what we are looking for to have a comfy lifestyle in Geneva .. you can possibly do with a little less if you plan on putting your kids in public schools ... school and rent are the big expenses here
