Our Region

Nestled amongst vineyards, mountains and lakes, the region comprising Aigle, Leysin and Col des Mosses offers a multitude of activities for all to enjoy along with a variety of cafés and restaurants to suit all tastes. And all of this set against a stunning backdrop ! Passing through vines which surround Aigle Château climbing up to the Col des Mosses and on to the majestic mountains with peaks of some 2300 m towering over the villages of Leysin and Les Mosses, you can discover the region through sport, history, gastronomy or quite simply by gazing at the dramatic scenery.

How do you fancy savouring authentic flavours accompanied by some amazing vintages ? Aigle, Yvorne and Ollon offer the chance to marry the fruits of the vines with the tasty and traditional mountain fare served up in the restaurants and mountain cafés of Leysin and Les Mosses.

If you’re a keen nature lover, walks in the mountains will lead you to wonderful lookout points from the summits. In the valley, walks amongst the vines or following the trail of the fountains offer a kaleidsocope of colours that change with the seasons.

Whether at high or low altitude, impressive sports fields abound, allowing sports practice in all its forms. Summer or winter walks, skiing, cross-country skiing, climbing, snow shoeing, cycling, mountain biking, swimming, etc…you’ll always find all you need for a physical workout in a truly amazing setting.
With the construction of Aigle Château in the 12th Century, the rich history and culture attached to this impressive landmark provide an unforgettable experience.
