The most beautiful villages of the canton of Vaud

Distributed all over the cantonal territory, several picturesque villages have been classified among “the most beautiful villages of Switzerland”. The canton of Vaud is thus one of the most represented Swiss cantons within the eponymous association.

This comes as no surprise in view of the abundance of Vaudois heritage and the diversity of its villages, all with their own characteristics: an old Roman town, a medieval stronghold, a Cluniac site, a peaceful winegrowing hamlet, an authentic mountain village, etc.

Only the villages that meet the eligibility criteria contained in the quality charter may apply for this exclusive label. The Association “The Most Beautiful Villages of Switzerland” has been committed to preserving remarkable villages since 2015, in an endeavour to enhance their heritage and image. It has recently joined the international federation “The Most Beautiful Villages of the Earth” at the side of prestigious foreign networks (France, Italy, Spain, Quebec, Japan, among others) that offers global prestige to the most beautiful villages around the world.

The most beautiful villages of Switzerland in the canton of Vaud offer not only exceptional landscapes and heritage, but are also live sites, where crafts and secular folklore endure and where encounters are cordial and authentic.

So let visitors discover these treasures of the Vaudois countryside, nestling in a preserved rural world off the beaten track, far from the tumult of the big cities but deeply rooted in local traditions and close to the inhabitants who nourish and cherish the assets of the cantonal terroir.
