Charming place for a stroll weekdays or weekends. Many small shops and artisans. And a lot of good restaurants and places for a drink. Best on a sunny days to sit on the terraces

Escape the hustle of central Geneva and eat out after a stroll around the quiet village square of Carouge. There is a wide choice of bars and restaurants, small clothes and craft shops.
