Thonon Les Bains in central eastern France is located in the Rhone-Alps region, part of the Chablais area and home to several wineries. It is also where the hills become the spectacular peaks that are the French Alps. Tourists come for the views, the waters of Leman Lake, the food and the thermal baths that give the city its name as well as its claim to fame.
The Thonon Les Bains Rail Station is well connected to the rest of France as well as to neighbouring Switzerland, with frequent and fast trains to Geneva. SNCF trains give access to the rest of France, with Chamonix being the next major connection by train.
The city wasn't put on the map of what would become the French Republic until the 13th century, when the Bourgeoisie moved in and set up shop. The city is a regional capital and is home to an industrial sector of some repute, but mostly the big money is in tourism, and the big tourist draw is the thermal baths.
Car hire is widely available in the region and the drives around the city are worth taking 'the long way' into town to see. From Paris, the A6 motorway will have you there in about six hours. If arriving at the Thonon Les Bains Rail Station, you can arrange a hire car in advance online for pick up at the station.
