This guided walk, starting in Yvoire and following the greenway before skirting the banks of Lake Geneva, will take you to the Domaine de Rovorée-la Chataignière. This 24-hectare site is home to an ancient forest with centuries-old chestnut trees, lakeshores with tufa caves, medieval remains, and offers a splendid panorama of Lake Geneva. It also has a very rich biodiversity. The management of this site must therefore meet various challenges. Throughout the tour, the following themes will be addressed
- the history of the village of Yvoire and its human occupation (from the 14th to the 21st century)
- medieval and contemporary architecture (mansion)
- the formation of landscapes and the use of local resources: links with geology;
- the management of the site, classified as a Sensitive Natural Area: problems (which concern the fauna, flora, meadows, forest, fishing, the use of the site, mobility, etc.) and possible solutions.
Depending on the season (April-September), the return trip can be made by solar-powered boat (with a supplement).
