these are really quite startling and imaganative sculptures, made from driftwood from the lake, add a great deal of interest when walking around the Town

The Flottins are made from hundreds of pieces of woods gathered from the lake and made into large figurines or animals. They are located in the walking area of the centre of Evian. They have also placed little benches so that we can sit inside...More

The sculptures are all hand made from wood into people, animals, etc. Wonderful backdrop for photoshoot. Best to do in the morning when less crowded.

We were very happy to find this fabulous attraction - it is fantastic how they have made these sculptures out of wood - the lighting and the music make the mood special for the Christmas season - great for children and adults alike.

The craft of sticking together wooden flotsam and creating strange fabulous animals is ripe in Evian. Those creations, which you will find a bit here and there in the centre, are really gorgeous.. and sometimes humoristic too!

A very nice village recreated within the town. Many wooden-constructed structure where kids can play and enjoy. Actors dressed as cavemen interact with the audience. Can also be visited at night time for more ghosty feelings.

This has been assembled each Christmas for about the last 8 years. It is built around a legend of Father Christmas taking a training flight across Lac Leman and crashing into the lake because two of his reindeer had a squabble. The Flottins (goblin like...More
