Description

At the south-eastern tip of Mont Vuache, there is a largely shaded path leading into the heart of the village of Chaumont, up to restored pastures and through the hamlets of the piedmont plain.

The path starts from the car park at the church and follows the long-distance "Balcon du Léman" path to see the Vuache and its outstanding plant life. There are breathtaking views on the Alps, the Annecy Basin, the Rhône Valley and the Jura. When you return to Chaumont, visit the emblematic ruins of the mediaeval castle built in 1124 by the Counts of Geneva, the Sainte Agathe de Chaumont church with its Gothic choir and doorway topped by a tympanum containing a trefoil Cross, the Barbannaz waterfall and the Pisieu Bridge.
A free leaflet is available on request from the Syndicat intercommunal d’Aménagement du Vuache (SIAV).
