Yvoire is lovely - cozy restaurants, nice little shops (though we went on a Sunday and quite a few weren't open) and, of course, just a wonderful place to walk. Parking is quite easy and inexpensive, but I'd advise visitors on weekends (and presumably this doesn't apply to the summer, when the place is literally overrun with tourists) to skip the free parking very close to the old town and pay the 2 euros that allows you to park all day in the lots you see as you approach the old town. Just an 8-10 minute walk into the town anyway.
Take a walk down to the waterside and enjoy looking at the various waterfowl. Restaurants can be impossibly crowded at lunch time, so either reserve or get there early. There is a lovely restaurant on the main walkway that serves fondue and other cheesey delights. Yvoire is a great way to spend a couple of hours just enjoying a stroll through a beautiful medieval town.
