Villa La Grange

Today’s summit at the grand villa, which has been hosted by Swiss President Guy Parmelin and involved both private conversations between the two presidents with just interpreters in attendance as well as sessions with additional delegates, could still be going on by the time you read this. But only if things are going well.

The estate in which Villa La Grange sits was created in the 1660s by merchant Jacques Francois. Banker Marc Lullin bought it from him in 1706 and in the 1760s three of his sons built the French-style mansion that stands today, as the family summer residence.

Losing everything during the French Revolution, the Lullins sold the estate in 1800 to Francois Favre, a Geneva ship owner who made his fortune trading with the East. It was the Favre family who added many of the impressive flourishes you will find today – from the monumental, lion-flanked entrance on the Quai Gustave-Ador, the pergola, the orangery and library, the considerable contents of which descendent William Fevre bequeathed to the City of Geneva, along with the rest of the estate, in 1917.
