Yvoire. (50 mins) www.yvoiretourism.com

Beautiful old town on the lake to the west of Thonon Les Bains, from Thollon take the by pass to avoid Thonon Les Bains and look for signs to Yvoire. See also Exencevex beach nearby, see separate teb.

The medieval village of Yvoire is located on the French side of Lac Léman - Lake Geneva. Yvoire is positioned at the end of the Presqu'île de Léman - Leman peninsula, that divides Lake Geneva into the Petit Lac - small lake and the Grand Lac – big lake. Its vantage point on Leman peninsula means you can almost get a 360° of the Lake Geneva. Good pay parking.

Yvoire is rather commercialised "chocolate box" but still has great charm. Lots of restaurants and ice cream shops. Nice just to wander round and enjoy the views, the old houses the port and the flowers.
