Lake Geneva (Lac Leman) and Surrounding Area

There are numerous towns and villages to visit on the shores of Lake Geneva including Montreux and Evian. The lake itself is one of the largest in Europe and is up to 13km wide in places.

Yvoire

Whilst we haven't visited Yvoire ourselves yet, many people have recommended we do.  It's a medieval village on the banks of Lake Geneva about 54 km from Chatel, and looks gorgeous.

Thonon-les-Bains is ideal to visit being a very pretty 45 minute (38km) drive mostly following the River Dranse.  You can picnic by the lake, visit the thermal baths or hire a small boat.  The tourist office gives more information at this link:-

One of our favourite is Lake Annecy which is worth the 112 km drive.  The historic town of Annecy is a delight to explore.
