With its narrow streets on the shores of Lake Geneva, its vineyard, country villages and snowy peaks, the region of Nyon is the epitome of Switzerland. Its extensive cultural and culinary history delights many a visitor, whatever their age and interests may be.
Located on the shores of Lake Geneva, halfway between the cities of Lausanne and Geneva, Nyon has everything to attract water sports enthusiasts, history buffs and fans of gastronomy. The vineyard occupies a place of honour in the heart of a bucolic hinterland that features terroir villages and authentic cellars. This former Roman city nestling in the heart of the La Côte vineyard is also the home of Paléo.
Incidentally, festivals and events are one of the region’s specialties. Music, contemporary arts, cinema, as well as gastronomy and wines can all be discovered thanks to a rich and varied annual programme. Gourmets who prefer to spend a quiet evening around a good meal will find exactly what they are looking for. There are plenty of excellent restaurants in Nyon and the surrounding areas, offering menus to suit all tastes.
