Whilst visiting Geneva a few years ago I took a day trip over to the beautiful flora-filled Medieval town of Yvoire on the French side of Lake Geneva (Lac Leman) specifically to visit the Garden of Five Senses. Being such a pretty town I also wandered around the back streets to see what else I could photograph and came across several drinking fountains (so much more sensible than having to buy plastic bottles of water) including this one.


I quite like the shape of the ‘bath’ beneath the fountain spout.

If you’d like to join in with the fountain challenge then please pop over to Polianthus for the rules

This month she is looking for stone fountains.ย I’m sure she would love to see you.

  1. A lovely solution to those endless bottles of bought water, and much more elegant than the plastic dispensers of free potable water in the streets of Bellingen (nthn NSW). I really enjoy your fountain series. That first photo shows a true oasis!


  2. It’s Friday so I popped back for a fountain. ๐Ÿ™‚ Never heard of Yvoire but it does look very pretty.(nudge- you’ve missed the ‘r’ out ๐Ÿ™‚ ) On the Polish border with Germany I saw a very fun fountain with a couple sitting in a big ‘bath’, but you’re right- I’m not likely to dig it out. ๐Ÿ™‚ Has the glazier found you yet?

    1. Ha! Eagle-eyed you. It’s certainly more pretty than petty ๐Ÿ˜‰ And yes, the glazier turned up only 3/4 hour later than expected. I am beginning to think Cornwall runs on African time.


  3. The water coming from the spout is obviously from a clean source. The water that collects below must drain of or just over flow? Or do people use this water for drinking also? Just curious…
