About this place
On l’appelle « la perle du Léman ». Dominant les bords du lac qui fit du village un port de pêcheurs et de bateliers, le donjon carré est l’un des vestiges du passé médiéval d’Yvoire qui a fêté, en 2006, les 700 ans de ses fortifications érigées par Amédée V le Grand, comte de Savoie.

Tips from locals
At less than an hour drive you'll find the medieval town of Yvoire. In winter you might not find all small shops open, but still worth for a walk in this small beautiful town and views of Lake Geneva.
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.
Beautiful medieval village on the banks of Lake Geneva, it is approximately a 40 minute drive away. Stunning views with some great shops and restaurants.
Yvoire is a favourite for a summer visit. It is located on the shores of lake Geneva and is a walled medieval village which has many small shops, cafes and restaurants. No traffic is allowed in the village so parking is available in the nearby car parks
