On the Vacherin Trail

Take a walk along the Vacherin trail and discover the artistry within this traditional industry. Mont-d'Or Vacherin, a unique, creamy cheese, benefits from a reputation that stretches beyond the Swiss borders. The season for this cheese is between the end of September and April, and it has been handmade in the cheese shops here (and matured in traditional cellars) for over a century.

It's more than a question of time

Olivier Piguet introduces clock lovers to the art of clock making in his studio, the Centre d’initiation de l’horlogerie, in Le Sentier. He tells you a lot about the history and the craftsmanship of clocks. He teaches up to two participants in one- to two-day courses, how clocks are taken apart, cleaned, oiled and put together again. Lunch is prepared in his house "Le Petit Paradis" by the clock master himself, and is included in the price of the course.
