Enjoyable autumn

The heat of summer gives way to the warm, muted colours of autumn. From the wines of Vully to the organic flavours of Seeland, the Lac de Morat and Broye region will once again have much to offer. Culture is never far away and deserves special attention, thanks in particular to the Cluniac jewel that is the abbey of Payerne or the preserved beauty of the old town of Murten. There are also many walks in the region to enjoy the fresh air among vineyards and lakes.
