From mountains to vineyards, this walk takes you through varied scenery, the pretty village of Panex and the equally charming village of Ollon surrounded by vines. Enjoy!
Starting from Villars, you head for Les Ecovets either via Chesières along the Route des Pins (after the Roc d'Orsay gondola lift), or by following the path to Les Ecovets via Les Chavasses which you take from the Route des Layeux. This variant will take you along the Les Chavasses trail, an educational trail teaching you about the local wildlife.
At Les Ecovets, you can have a break at the restaurant of the same name and enjoy the magnificent views of Lake Geneva in the distance if it’s a clear day. You then follow the road then the forest path towards Panex. After the village, you head for Ollon, through green meadows and forest paths. The end of the walk takes you through the vineyards of Ollon to the village.
