Which area should I live in---Cologny or Champel?
 
Hi all:

I'm in the process of finding an apt, so far I've narrowed down the choices to a very nice place in Cologny and Champel/Plainpalais. Which area is better?? Any advice is appreciated! Thanks!

Fantastic choice !


How the hell do you want anybody to give you a constructive answer if we know absolutely zip about you, your preferences, your age, your situation ?

Champel / Plainpalais are much more lively, shopping, eating, drinking, buying cannabis etc... It's a younger community, popular with students, you will be able to buy basics and find open bars on a Sunday even.

Cologny.. Much more posh, popular with diplomats, quiet, green, not many shops or drug dealers, many old people, many individual houses, probably not well served by uber eats.

So quite different

Cologny is a bit out of town. Although Vesenaz is not too far and has good facilities.

Depends where you'll be working and wanting to spend your leisure.

And, if you want access to a nearby creche, forget Cologny, there's a long waiting list for an expensive creche.

And, how you'll want to get around. There's a direct bus to Rive (that runs 4 x times an hour at commuting time, and once an hour in the evening).
