Yvoire is a charming small town (or better: a village) on the southern shore of Lake Geneva. We took a trip all around the lake and this was really an enchanting place. It is practically the only place well worth visiting along the southern shore....More

We were out and about in and around Geneva. We were taken to Yvoire by our son daughter in law. They live in this part of France. Having been to the medieval cité of carcassone we didn't know what to expect. Yvoire is a mini...More

I recently visited Yvoire for the 2nd and 3rd times. Once was alone and once with friends. The village is delightful, although in winter many businesses are closed. For me, the quiet and peacefulness added to its charm. I imagine in summer it could become...More

We went on December, and it was very cold and windy,and the shops and the restaurants are all closed. But the view of the Geneva lake is fantastic and the city is lovely with its medieval streets, worth visiting it.

A short drive from Geneva and on the banks of the lake this little town is a little gem. The old church towering over the town,the cobbled stone streets,cafes and restaurants, souvenir shops. A great way to spend a day exploring the town. You can...More

An easy drive from Geneva or you can take the ferry. Plenty of parking as the town is all pedestrianised. Very quaint with good mix of specialist shops and restaurants. Worth a visit if you are in the area even out of season.

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.
