Discovering and photographing the unknown beauty of Europe
One of the biggest discoveries during Our Adaptable Adventure was the village of Yvoire:
Pretty, quaint, picturesque, beautiful, .. you name it! As soon as we arrived in Yvoire, we fell in love with it! It has about 700 inhabitants and the medieval center is only accessible for pedestrians. This is what Wikipedia has to say about it:
It is well known for its medieval buildings and beautiful flower decoration during the summer season. It is also one of the “most beautiful villages of France“. (…) The town was fortified by Amadeus V in 13th century. It soon gained a strategic military importance and the inhabitants were given tax privileges.
I will talk about the “most beautiful villages of France” in a later post. The Viking and I first had a stroll in the center of town; the narrow streets with food shops and pubs and restaurants are simply adorable! We were there quite early, otherwise we would have had lunch there!
And the best was yet to come! Here are the other pictures!
