Les Pitons via the Chavanne pastures

A breathtaking view including Geneva and the Alps. On the way, you'll see the Archamps rocks, the Chavanne pastures grazed by dairy herds and the Grand Piton (summit and Bastian Tower).

Fairly easy discovery trail in Archamps, called the "Oak Path".
In the hamlet of Verrières, there are some beautiful old houses, a Cross that is a historic monument and the Prisoners' Chapel.
