Just popped over the border to the wonderful little town of Carouge* in the Canton of Geneva, Switzerland for a guided tour of the town (in french) and a great lunch in a tiny bistro called Ô Calme, which stands for Comme a la Maison and translated into English means ‘like at home’. You walk through the front door straight into the kitchen, then through to the cosy dining area with a lovely ambience and some great modern art on the walls. There is also a wonderful enclosed garden eating area.

*The town of Carouge dates back to the middle ages, but the town as it stands now was built entirely by The King of Sardinia and the Duke of Savoy starting in January 1786. It has approximately 20,000 inhabitants and is a thriving small town with a great market on a Wednesday and Saturday in the town square. Wandering around the small streets you will find some fabulous individual boutiques and shops. This small town is listed as a Swiss heritage site.
