Located in an 18th century farm, the former property of the Chartreuse de Pomier, the Maison du Salève is a cultural centre focused on the Salève mountain.


Located in a rural area in Présilly, the Maison du Salève offers visitors original activities including exhibitions, guided tours, workshops, conferences and nature trips. On departing from the Maison, walks for both inexperienced and avid walkers: the discovery route "In the footsteps of the Carthusian monks", the Way of Saint James path or the Convers path to reach the summit of Le Salève.

The eco-shop of the Maison de Salève highlights the talent of local artisans, producers and writers.
