What you'll do

For me, Allinges Castle are cursed. Why? Why were they warring? How? Why were these castles destroyed? Why this place became a pilgrimage St Francis de Salle, who was he? That is the subject of this visit. I guide a small group of 2 to 8 people maximum, walking from the car park of Noyer (1200 route de Noyer 74200 Allinges, France) through the path that borrowed François de Salle who resided at the Château Neuf in 1594. I tell walking the history of these two cursed castles .

I was a reporter in this Lake Geneva region. I often wondered why the castles of Allinges were destroyed. Conflicts between heirs, war of inheritance, religion, nearly 1000 years of history are in the ruins of these cursed castles.

What's included

Where you'll be

Our walk takes 30 minutes to go up to the two castles, then the visit, the comments and the "drinks" break about 1 hour. You will visit the chapel and take the time to admire the view of Lake Geneva from the belvedere. Back 30 minutes by the chef lieu d'Allinges. Total duration: 2h. Less if you want to avoid going back on foot (ask me).

More tips

It is an easy hike of about 250m of altitude difference. The story is interactive, not didactic, I answer your questions, I adapt the story to the children. We talk about the Middle Ages, war techniques, building castles as Guedelon at Treigny in the Yonne (France) https://www.guedelon.fr.
