The Story of Amphion-les-Bains

The history of Amphion-les-Bains is marked by its initial rise as a renowned spa town between the 17th and 19th centuries, attracting visitors for its alkaline and sulphurous springs as well as its hotel establishments. However, its prestige was gradually overshadowed by its more famous neighbor, Evian. Subsequently, Amphion shifted its development towards the plain, where a commercial and industrial area was established throughout the 20th century, becoming the new center of growth for the town.

A Residential Coastline

Today, the municipality strives to enhance its coastline, notably with the emergence of a recent port village and consideration for the expansion of the marina.

Amphion-les-Bains features a residential coastline divided into two distinct parts. To the south, a continuously expanding commercial zone welcomes new brands, while to the north, a vast residential area has developed along the shores of Lake Geneva. The main residences are villas built during the second half of the 20th century, offering a peaceful setting close to the lake beaches and wooded parks. To the west, the Delta de la Dranse offers a preserved natural space, ideal for relaxation and walks.

Equipped Environment

The plain of Amphion is also equipped with modern facilities, such as the Water City, a sports complex offering an indoor swimming pool, gymnasiums, and indoor tennis courts. Public amenities such as a school and a post office contribute to the daily life of residents. Along the lakefront, a multitude of activities are available, including walking, fishing, swimming, and enjoying fresh fish in waterfront restaurants. Additionally, Amphion's central location, equidistant from Evian-les-Bains and Thonon-les-Bains, provides easy access to a wide range of services and activities in these two neighboring cities.
