Medieval Village of Yvoire
Yvoire, a medieval settlement from the first half of the 14th century, still stands today. Yvoire, a village on the French side of Lake Geneva, is known as the “gem of the lake” because of its location between Geneva and Evian. In many ways, visiting Yvoire is like traveling through time. For tourists, this is a must-see destination thanks to its stunning floral displays and excellent “olde” restaurants.
The Garden of the Five Senses
Walled gardens of the Middle Ages were the inspiration for this maze of vegetation, which the Ministry of Culture has designated a “Remarkable Garden.” Visitors are invited to explore the ever-changing world of color, taste, scent, texture, and sound. In the midst of all the beauty, you’ll find antique roses, fruit trees, aromatic and medicinal plants, aviaries, and fountains.
First discovered by tourists because of its mineral water and natural springs, Evian is a beautiful town. The Alps and the lakes’ crystal-clear waters provide a stunning backdrop to the town’s incredible views. On one side, you can see Switzerland, while on the other, you’ll see the Palais Lumiere, the world-famous Casino, and the Theater. It’s a lovely walk along the lakeside!
