A little paradise in the Vaudois Alps: nestled in a basin on the south face of the Palette, Lake Retaud reflects the blue sky and dark pines in its crystal water.
This idyllic spot near the Col du Pillon is a very popular place to visit. It's a 30-minute walk to the lake from the Col for those who fancy a stroll. For serious hikers, there's a longer trail from Les Diablerets passing through the magnificent landscape of this Pre-alp region. Walking down to Lake Retaud from the top station of the Les Diablerets - Isenau cable car, you can take in the peaks of Sex Rouge, Nägelihorn and Oldenhorn and Les Diablerets glacier.
