Popped here on the bus from Geneva and all I can say is that it’s absolutely stunning. The houses are amazing to look at and the lake is wonderful to walk around. Highly recommended a day trip here.

We made another visit to this historic Savoyard town and the trip is well worth it. A wonderful medieval Old Village, a beautiful clean and clear lake, amazing mountains, crisp fresh air. A must-go!
