St. Saphorin

Last weekend we took a car and headed out for a bit of a cruise around the country-side. The idea was to check out a few of the French border towns but in the end the most interesting place we visited was practically around the corner from us at St. Saphorin.

This little town in the Lavaux wine growing area near Vevey is amazingly situated above the lake and amongst the vines.

We had a little picnic there and walked around a bit, and vowed to come back again on another sunny day to explore in more detail.

On the way back from our trip we stopped off on the motorway above Vevey to check out the view of the town from the hills. We found a great place to stop and it really showed off the town of Vevey and its location amongst the mountains and lake.
