    how to go there

    by mindcrime Written Apr 13, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Yvoire is 15km from Thonon-les-Bains, 27km from Evian, 27km from Geneva, 64km from Montreaux, 90km from Lausanne

    By car
    We drove from Lausanne through the scenic road next to Geneva lake. Easy to do the trip from Geneva too as it is only 27km away through D25 road that will take you from Switzerland to France. There is a modern (and a bit faster) road (N5) but not so scenic.
    We left the car at the parking lot and then just walked inside Yvoire which is a small town anyway and easy to explore.

    By boat
    Many people take the ferry from Nyon (Switzerland) at the other side of the Geneva lake, there are many boats during summer months and the ride is only 15’. From Geneva or Lausanne takes much longer (1-2 hours depending on boat type)
    You can also do the daytrip by boat from Evian.

    Pic1 is the entrance of the parking lot
    Pic 3 shows Yvoire and other cities around Geneva lake.
    Pic 4 shows a map of Yvoire that I found on the net, you don’t really need it as the town is very small

    The ferry ride from Nyon, Switzerland takes about 15 minutes and run's once an hour ....Do ask when the last ferry is, if not you'll end paying 100 Euro's to get back to Geneva ..... We bought a 3 day regional train ticket and the price of the ferries were included ......

    Road to Yvoire

    The "Swiss Riviera" - at least, that's what the Swiss say. Park your car in the large parking complex and walk through Yvoire. A wonderful road trip......
