Conviviality is an art of living in the canton of Vaud. Sharing a meal or a drink in good company and in the open air is part of the best moments during the summer season. Our selection shows you where to find the most beautiful terraces out in the green, on the lakeshores or in the mountains.
Drinking a glass of wine in the middle of the vineyards where the grapes come from, enjoying a typical meal with a view of the mountains, tasting perch fillets on the lakeshores: all these pleasures delight the eyes and the palate as soon as the warmer days arrive in the four corners of the region.
There are many heavenly places that combine a charming setting with unique flavours in the region, but the secret is well kept sometimes. Our pages reveal the hot tips and give you the best addresses for sunbathing while eating.
From mountain restaurants, countryside inns to urban cafés and lakeside restaurants: Follow our guide to enjoy a convivial outdoor moment in true Vaudois art of living style!
