You’ll immediately see why it's on the list for Les Plus Beaux Villages de France, a sort of Michelin Guide of the best preserved French villages, when you're dropped off near the pedestrian city center. For two hours explore on your own, sauntering down the narrow lanes full of old stone buildings with flower-covered balconies. See what French artisans have on offer as you pop into shops and boutiques, or get a dose of history at Yvoire Castle (Château d'Yvoire), where you’ll learn of the city’s strategic military importance in the Middle Ages. Nature lovers can stroll along the Lake Geneva shoreline or soak up the greenery of Le Jardin des Cinq Sens (The Garden of Five Senses).

Pause at one of the many cafes to people-watch over an espresso, or find your perfect restaurant to indulge in a typical Savoyard meal — melted cheese, charcuterie and potatoes are the stars of this soul-satisfying mountain cuisine.
