Le Sen­tier

MVMT - - Technique -

Head­ing south takes you to the can­ton of Vaud and the core of fine watch­mak­ing. The Val­lée de Joux is home to vil­lages that in­clude Le Sen­tier and Le Bras­sus as well as some of the most no­table names in high watch­mak­ing. The most sig­nif­i­cant of which in this area is JaegerLe­coul­tre. The Richemont-owned watch­maker houses over 180 crafts in its man­u­fac­ture. If you have the op­por­tu­nity and the weather is great, go wind-surf­ing or sail­ing on the Lac de Joux (Jura lake). It’s 1,000 me­tres above sea level and is the most mas­sive body of wa­ter in the re­gion. Along with great watch­mak­ing, Le Sen­tier is well-known for great food and fresh lake fish. Check out the Belle­vue Le Rocheray for great din­ing, but if you’re a city-lovin’ per­son, then crash in Geneva for the night. Af­ter all, driv­ing there takes just slightly over an hour. That way, you can en­joy the best of both worlds.
