This easy loopback walk through gently-rolling countryside along the Mont-Sion ridge is a wonderful place for a stroll and some breathtaking views over the Préalpes, Jura, Geneva area, Usses Valley and the nearby Salève.
In Charly, visit the 15th-century chapel. There is a communal gîte beside it. Walk along the banks of the Bougerie Lake and admire the view over Lake Geneva and the Alps. Mont-Sion forms a natural link between the Salève ad Vuache areas and is crossed by the pilgrims' road to Santiago de Compostela.

As you walk down to the village of Présilly, you'll find information panels describing the scenery, a picnic table and a chapel. The sumptuous Carthusian monastery stands on the hills above Présilly (1170) and, nearby, is the Salève visitors centre (Maison du Salève) which will reveal all the secrets of this area! In Saint Symphorien, don't miss the Andilly vicarage (exhibitions, peals of bells, gardens etc.). And at the Mont-Sion pass, stop in Santa Claus' hamlet and in the nearby restaurant.
