LOVELY GENEVA COUNTRYSIDE - SIERNE

Last week I talked about my walk by the Arve riverside. In this post you'll be able to see the pictures of the second part of my little trip...

Well, after having crossed the French border and enjoyed the wonderful scenery there (Arve river & Étrembière pond) we continued hiking in the direction of the quaint hamlet of Sierne with it's historic farmsteads (some dating back to Medieval times) and vineyards.

It is a magical place chock-a-block-full with atmosphere and interesting details. No wonder that it is considered to be one of the most beautiful hamlets in the canton of Geneva. A paradize for fans of old buildings and for photography freaks!

Then, after having gone through Sierne we headed toward the Route de Veyrier where there is a lovely farmhouse which I never forget to admire. A ravishing home that brings you back in time. My favorite place in Geneva.

I hope that you'll feel the magic of that part of the Geneva countryside and that my photos will make you dream.

  58. my daughter is staying near there for a few weeks. I have told her to go and have a visit, the pics are so inspiring. What one thing should she bring back to Australia in her suitcase?
    (Forget cheese, chocolate, watches, swiss army knives-we have all those here)
    Anything vintage?
    Best place to get prints or artworks?
