Culture & Traditions

Our region is particularly known for its stunning scenery and wide variety of activities, but it would be like a tree without roots if it wasn’t for its equally rich culture and traditions.

Enjoy one of our tasty cheeses made according to traditional old methods or one of our wines made with sun-soaked grapes, explore the village of Ormonts and its authentic museum or be captivated by our rich geology: our region’s rich heritage will fascinate and surprise you.

Experience and live this culture by travelling through our region, exploring its villages, including the famous Taveyanne, or browsing in our little shops, like the Maison du Terroir. You’ll come away with some great local treats.
