Rovorée Rec­om­men­da­tions

France - - France -

Thank you for the item con­cern­ing the foot/cy­cle path be­tween Yvoire and the Do­maine de Rovorée (July 2018, is­sue 238) in FRANCE Mag­a­zine, which ar­rived shortly be­fore we set off for our hol­i­day in the Abon­dance valley.

We have known well the area around Yvoire for al­most 50 years, vis­ited of­ten, and also pic­nicked at La Châ­taig­nière on oc­ca­sion but not re­cently. Usu­ally we avoid the di­rect road from Dou­vaine to Yvoire with all the busy­ness of traf­fic to the camp­sites and beaches of Éch­en­evex, but this time we drove past to the park­ing at Do­maine de Rovorée and found the area de­light­ful and very peace­ful.

The path di­rectly to Yvoire may only take 20 min­utes, but we first ex­plored the area around the re­mains of the old for­ti­fi­ca­tions down by the Lake. Af­ter a pic­nic there, we fol­lowed the path along the edge of the Lake (plenty of shade on what was a very hot day) un­til we reached the prop­er­ties which reach down to the lake edge, and then the new way which is well sep­a­rated from the road and leads into the path be­low the car park at Yvoire. A rest and an ice-cream pre­pared us for the re­turn walk by the di­rect path. This made for a very pleas­ant day’s out­ing and one we will cer­tainly re­peat. Judy and John Wil­son, Oadby, Leics
