In the summer drive up high into the mountains (1,340m) to explore the Graydon Mountain Pasture. Great for families to explore the pastures, see the mountains goats and the wonderful views. You can also buy cheese from the local farm.

A must visit! Take a dip in the summer (or winter if you dare), and enjoy the breathtaking views of the mountains in the background. You can take your own or hire a paddle board, a perfect way to relax. At the far end of the lake, there are Barbeques for everyone to use and picnic tables. A great place to enjoy the evening and watch the sunset. Great to take a jog or walk around and there is even a waterfall at the far end, follow the signs for the Casade D'ardent.

City/town information

Medieval flowered village on the shore of Lac Leman. About a 45mins drive, but perfect to explore pretty shops and restaurants (some feature in the Michelin Guide). I always take visiting family and friends here as such a beautiful place.

Getting around

Car Parking for Skiing/Snowboarding

Car parks at Ardent in Montriond, Nyon in Morzine and L'Encrenaz for Mont Cherry are all free and you can usually obtain a space in the morning easily. Only in high season would you need to be parking by 9am to obtain a space. Parking is also free a the Grand Terche in Roc d'Enfer but spaces are limited, so can be difficult in high season.
