The beautiful mediaeval town of Estavayer-le-Lac is also a popular lakeside summer holiday destination.
Beautiful carriage doors and painted houses line the narrow streets of the Cité à la Rose, while Chenaux Castle and Saint-Laurent Church (14th century) dominate the town with their pointed arches, a defining feature of pure Gothic style. Then there’s the curiosity of the Musée des Grenouilles, where naturalised amphibians strike human poses.
Estavayer-le-Lac has the best equipped water sports centre in Switzerland. With its water ski cableway, it has become THE destination for wakeboarding and the gently sloping sandy beach is ideal for swimming and family fun. The “Nouvelle Plage”, with its play area, restaurant and camp site, create the feel of a real Mediterranean seaside resort in this lakeside part of the town. Pedalos, windsurfing boards, paddle boards or catamarans are available for rental.
