Just love Yvoire! It can get busy and by that I mean hoards of tourists so better not to contemplate July & August. We usually visit in May, June or September when it's very much quieter although there always exceptions! It is a the most...More

Yvoire is a fairy tale. Everywhere you look you are left aghast. It is hands down the cutest place we ever stayed, bar none.

This is a beautiful medieval village with lots of history. Steep streets to navigate but lovely boutique shops and restaurants make the climbs worth it. I would recommend this village for a pleasant day out.

We spent about 2 hours here which was plenty. It is a beautiful ancien village but full of tourists and tacky shops. We were glad we went tho. It is lovely down by the waterfront.

From the views from the ferry, the flowers on almost every building, pedestrian streets with an array of eateries and shops, Yvoire is very inviting and beautiful. Worth the effort, highly recommend visiting.

The town is gorgeous. It was interesting, but I wish I had known how tiny and repetitive it was. I would have planned to stay for an hour or an hour and a half. They sell ice cream in each and every shop, and that...More

That's not easy! There isn't a rail link to Yvoire and even if there were Yvoire is in France and I am not sure your Swiss Rail Pass would work. You could use your pass to get to Nyon and then boat across. The boats... More
