Medieval City – Yvoire, FRANCE

Yvoire, a romantic medieval town in Haute Savoie on the French side of Lake Geneva, is a popular day-trip destination from Geneve, Nyon, Evian, and local Alpine resorts.

This medieval bourg, ideally situated on the expanse separating the “little lake” from the “great lake”, still possesses some of the essential elements of the fortifications of the 14th Century : the castle, doors, ramparts…

Known as a modest fishing village in the beginning of the century, Yvoire is now ranked as one of the International Laureates of Floral Decorations, and is a member of the Association of the Most Beautiful Villages of France. - Yvoire Tourism Office

Matagal ko ng trip ang tumihaya (atta word) sa “bed of roses”. Natupad din! Alam nyo bang isa-isa ko pang tinanggal ang mga tinik ng mga tangkay bago ako humiga diyan? Siempre, istir ko lang yun! Hindi yan mga rosas. Mukang mga rosas lang. Lol!
