A pretty family walk in the heart of the Vaud Alps.
To get to the start of this walk, take the cogwheel train from Villars to Bretaye and get off at the second to last stop called "Les Bouquetins". Follow the path to La Truche, offering open views of the Vaud Alps. In the distance, in clear weather, you can just see Lake Geneva. From La Truche, head towards Villars along the path sloping through the pastures until you get to Chesières and then follow the path back to Villars.
