Nestled between the lake and the mountains, this municipality spreads across 892 hectares and is split into two parts:

  • The “upper” Publier that includes the main town and  spreads out from Marin to Evian.
  • “Lowland” Amphion that is alongside the lake stretching from Évian to Thonon (Ripaille Domain, the Riiver Dranse Nature Reserve).
