#MoveIn Château-d'Oex - Pays-d'Enhaut

The Pays-d’Enhaut region in the Vaud Alps is an ideal destination for outings because it is so easy to reach. One day rarely suffices for visitors to discover its many natural and cultural treasures, so they usually extend or repeat their stays in this authentic mountain region. An authentic ambience prevails in the Pays-d’Enhaut villages, known for the architecture of their traditional wooden chalets with delicate sculptures. Another typical art form − the renowned skill of paper-cutting – can be discovered at the Pays-d’Enhaut Museum.

Marc-Etienne Piot – Président de la Maison du Blé et du Pain

Considered as Switzerland’s “breadbasket” thanks to its large wheat farming space, the Wheat and Bread Festival in Echallens pays tribute to our agricultural, milling and baking traditions. Marc-Etienne Piot, the president of the Wheat and Bread Museum in Echallens and a native of the same region, describes this village event and the population’s enthusiasm with sparkling eyes. Established in 1978, the fourth Wheat and Bread Festival will take place from August 15 to 26, 2018, in the form of a show featuring nearly 800 people on stage, be they professionals or amateurs. 40,000 spectators are expected to come and celebrate the harvest time, the millennial agricultural legacies and the bread that has been the basis of our daily diet since Antiquity.

Histoires de recettes


Amandine is a word that makes our mouths water... and a sweet many people simply cannot resist! This specialty of St. Croix is made at the bakery/confectionery La Gourmandine, by Reynald Jaccard and his team. They are the guardians of the secret that has turned Amandine into a unique pastry. This gentle blend of honey, cream, sugar and almonds spread on a sweet dough can be kept at room temperature. It is easily transported and a delight to eat... What more could you ask for? Amandine, your hold on us is sweet...
