From Saint-Jeoire, walk along the hillside, first up the valley of the Le Giffre stream, then along the wider, urban Arve valley. There is a lot of tarmac to be covered, but always along on minor roads that offer good views and easy walking. The exception is the section between the old Marignier bridge and Brannaz on the D6 (a wide, busy road). This brings you to Cluses, the small capital of Faucigny, famous since the 18th century for its watchmaking workshops. The village owes its name to the narrow gorge of the Arve, at the foot of which the town developed.
