Lutry is a charming little town of 10 000 inhabitants which extends from Lac Léman to the Jorat forest. Even if it located only a few minutes from Lausanne, it enjoys a quiet and exclusive location. The town is rich of history. Many castles and fortified towers were built between the 11th and the 18th centuries. The period of the 20th century was characterized by the influx of many new, non-local families. Lutry became a popular residential area for the wealthy classes.
Lausanne is the second biggest city situated on the shores of Lake Léman. The location of Lausanne is very atypical. The city is built on three hills, surrounded by vineyards, along the Lake Léman. The old town of Lausanne is dominated by the cathedral, which is known for being Switzerland’s most impressive piece of early Gothic architecture.
Luxury hotels such as “Le Beau-Rivage Palace” or “Hotel d’Angleterre” where Lord Byron once stayed are a must see in Lausanne. Gourmets will appreciate various regional specialties as the papet Vaudois.
