Access

Right after the border at Hermance. At the moment the surroundings are under construction and not very well laid out for the parking lot, but I think it will come.

Français: Juste après la frontière à Hermance. Pour le moment les alentours sont en travaux et pas très bien aménagé pour le parking, mais je pense que cela va venir.
