We stopped first at La Maison du Gruyere (House of Gruyere) in Pringy and then headed to Gruyeres to have lunch and visit the Chateau du Gruyeres.
This was one of my favorite stops on the trip, it combined a really good meal, a charming medieval car free village and even an educational component as I learned a bit about cheese making.
