Medieval Yvoire (Day 1)
After falling in love with Evian, Laura and Micheal took me to a beautiful little town in the afternoon called Yvoire. This attractive medieval village still possesses some of the essential fortification elements of the 14th century: a castle, doors, ramparts...
Known as a modest fishing village at the beginning of the century, nowadays Yvoire is a town of medieval architecture, artisans and cafes and flowers. Like Evian, the town of Yvoire has won numerous awards for its flower displays and is a member of the Association of the Most Beautiful Villages of France.
Yvoire, like Evian, is now ranked as one of the International Laureates of Floral Decorations, and is a member of the Association of tht Most Beautiful Villages of France.
