After a boatride on Lake Geneva, we spent time in Yvoire, France, a charming medieval village. Lots of flowers. Lots of shops and places to eat. Had crepes at a local stand that were delicious. The gelato is pretty good too.

Great floral experience when you take the boat from Geneva (daily during summer), lots of restaurants and cozy sights to see. A bit too crowded at weekends. Great for kids

Yvoire, is such a beautiful place. We found it from our Beaux Villages in France book, and it did not disappoint. Such a gorgeous village on the banks of Lac Geneve. It should be on everyone's to do list.

This is a really pretty old town on the bank of Lac Leman. There are plenty of restaurants and places to buy gifts and souvenirs - not cheap tat!

Worth a visit but unless you are going to stop for lunch, a couple of hours should do it. It is small and easy to walk around. It is really pretty and has lots of little shops and restaurants. Both the main harbour and the...More

We passed there when cycling around the lake without having heard about it beforehand. You can easily stroll around for an hour looking at the old buildings (and avoiding all the tourist shops) - you may want to go for some hand-made ice-cream. Be aware...More

That's not easy! There isn't a rail link to Yvoire and even if there were Yvoire is in France and I am not sure your Swiss Rail Pass would work. You could use your pass to get to Nyon and then boat across. The boats... More

Skip Yvoire; it is a T-trap. Use the time to explore the Alps or route d' Napoleon on the way to Paris.
