For the sportier visitors, two hours of walking along the path by the Rhone will be enough to explore the immense area around Les Grangettes, or perhaps you would prefer to begin your walk from Villeneuve (an extra 45 minutes). At the foot of the Arvel and Grammont mountains, at the same height as the towns of Villeneuve and Noville, the natural reserve is the last area of protected ground on the banks of Lake Geneva. Its wild beauty has made it an attraction, a paradise even, for all nature-lovers. Tucked behind the bushes or the rose shrubs is a rich aquatic universe where visitors (if they are patient) can see herons, kingfishers, beavers or several migratory birds taking refuge in this biotope, the only one of its kind in Europe.

How to get there:
By car: take the motorway, exit at Villeneuve and follow the edge of the lake and cross the bridge at Eau-Froide.
