  • A real paradise.... to get there and for those who love nature,c and a path that leads to the lake,an hour's walk, a path a little challenging and uphill, recommended comfortable shoes, you can reach the resort even by car,leaving the car in a parking lot walking then x a few minutes, alternatively c and taxi service... Once you arrive,the lake shows all its splendone,there are also two restaurants,a few minutes we find ourselves in a small and pretty village,with a small dairy,where you can buy cheese and yogurt.... raising our eyes we are captured by the spectacle that offers the mountain, and about 2 h walk you get to the grammonts,where the spectacle that we find ourselves in front of is pure magic, the view of Lake Geneva, with Lausanne, and we surrounded by mountains,nature ,peace, silence

  • We will remember two things about this lake: its beauty difficult to match (once you're there, it's hard to leave) and the way to get there. We are sporty (even if we like cheese too) and we thought that 45 minutes of climb inge was nothing. What an idea, it's steep and exhausting... doable, of course, but you have to have the information before you start. Positives: - the lake obviously is beautiful, of exceptional calm, the water is not so cold (compared to other lakes less at altitude) - whether it's the path or the edge of the lake it's clean, no waste or butts on the ground - the possibility for those who wish to take 4x4 "taxis" to climb up to the lake... Admittedly I read comments pointing out the fact that it was polluting, it's true but without it many people (especially elderly) would not have been able to enjoy this little corner of paradise. Negative points: - the climb, beyond the fact that it is not obvious, is above all that it has no interest, at no time do we stop to observe the landscape (or so it is an excuse to catch our breath). --- a "negative" point that has the merit of making the finish even more delicious. Put on your shoes, hydrate and head to heaven!
