From the Jorat plateau
to the Broye valley, picturesque villages and lovely Vaud style farms dot a
partially-wooded landscape, offering surprising panoramic views of the Pre-Alps
or the Jura. Situated right in the heart of the Vaud countryside, our area
offers numerous possibilities for walks; discover it on foot, on donkey back or
in a carriage.
