Tolochenaz is a village whose charm especially fascinated the actress Audrey Hepburn, who lived there for 30 years. In Tolochenaz one can discover the river with its Trail of the Trout.

In 1823, hints were found at “Crêt du Boiron” which prove that the first signs of civilization in the present-day commune of Tolochenaz appeared in the Bronze Age. The discovery of 40 tombs was significant enough to make history under the name of “Civilisation du Boiron”.

The charm and blandness of the place and the quietness of the country attract popular guests, namely the famous pianist and Polish statesman Ignace Paderewski and the actress Audrey Hepburn who is buried at the cemetery of Tolochenaz.

In Tolochenaz, the Boiron river was chosen for the reproduction of the lake trout. There is a nature trail along the river – the Trail of the Trout – set up by the Trout Association of Lake Geneva with the support of the public authorities of the region.
