Rougemont is an unspoilt traditional village in the valley of the Pays d’Enhaut, whose gentle landscape is home to an exceptional variety of local fl ora and fauna.
For a thousand years, perhaps longer, people have been farming the land here and prac tising traditional mountain crafts. Their quality of life – and their happiness – is refl ected in the superbly built wooden chalets, adorned with fl owers, decorated with mottoes, dated and signed just like works of art.
Rougemont church, a jewel of Romanesque architecture, was built in the 11th century by monks of the Cluniac order. The church and the adjoining castle – both of which stand on the foundations of the earlier monastery – are protected monuments.
