This territory is thus identified for the rarity or fragility of the wildlife and natural habitats that make it up.

F.A.Q.

About "From Mont-Blanc to Lake Geneva"

The answer is NO since half of it is located in France!

Very often nicknamed “Lake Geneva”, the “Léman” is bi-frontier. Swiss in the northern part, and French in the southern part. The cities of Thonon-Les-Bains and Evian-Les-Bains border the Haut-Savoyard shores; the cities of Geneva, Lausanne and Montreux are on the Swiss side.
So even if it is commonly called Lake Geneva, we must give credit where credit is due!

Let’s admit that Lake Geneva is fed by the Rhone, a river which, before flowing into France, takes its source in the Rhone glacier located in Switzerland. Let us also recognize that most of its banks are located in Switzerland, and those important agglomerations of international renown are located on the Swiss side. But the largest natural lake in the Alps is indeed transboundary! 🇨🇭🇫🇷

Yvoire is a medieval city, classified among the most beautiful villages in France. Located on the shores of Lake Geneva, Yvoire is the “Pearl of Lake Geneva”.

For more than 700 years, the history of the House of Savoy has testified to its rich and powerful heritage. The keep and the ramparts of the town still proudly dominate the waters of the largest natural lake in Europe. The garden of the five senses, the exploration of the narrow streets paved with old stones and with balconies full of flowers, invite the strollers to a breakout of time, in a setting conducive to daydreaming, to relaxation, quite simply!

So when we tell you that it is beautiful, you can believe us!
Stop in Yvoire! 🙂
