Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A great number of people working in Geneva have their residence in France, either around Ferney-Voltaire or around Annemasse. That's mainly because housing prices are quite high in Geneva. And they have no problem commuting everyday.

Geneva is a nice city, not as lively as London or Paris, but with a big international community mainly made of people working in the many international institutions and organisations which have their siege there.

Annecy is a wonderful place to go to, but the housing prices are sky high.

The country around Geneva is beautiful, and if you like skiing, it's the right place. Lyon is only 1h30 to 2h away by car or train and it takes between 4h and 5h to go to the south of France and the Mediterranean.
