Mild temperatures, nature’s flamboyant colours and festive events mark this bright and calm season.
As a calmer period after the frenzy of the summer, the autumn still promises bright days and balmy evenings in the canton of Vaud. Radiating from a sky that seems closer to the Earth, the sun rays shed new light on the magnificent landscapes. An unmissable stroll in the terraced vineyards of Lavaux UNESCO opposite majestic Lake Geneva and the Alps will fill you with a feeling of plenitude and will create an atmosphere for daydreaming. The yellow-orangey hues of the vineyards form a lovely contrast with the blue-grey reflections of the water that is as smooth as a mirror. The grape harvest in full swing throughout the county lends itself perfectly to taking multiple snapshots!
In the villages and towns, there are multiple markets and events that liven up the season. Whether they are traditional, gastronomic, urban or cultural, these cordial moments of sharing will be a memory to be cherished. The colourful désalpes, a living tradition to the sounds of the cattle’s bells, reflect the spirit of this pivotal period that gently takes us to the first days of winter.
