  • Go in the spring, when the lake level is low enough to reach it by foot. There is a small chapel and the ruins of the castle to visit... the kids love. (1 hour return walk) Otherwise, during the summer, since the rock by renting a canoe... refreshing.

  • Beautiful small island in the Lake of Gruyère, accessible by boat or on foot according to the season. Nice place. No restaurant or store. Just to charm.

  • Since the time that we see him passing on the highway... Rent a canoe for an hour on the shore. Aperitif on Ogoz island, with barely 15 minutes fast access and an absolutely beautiful environment on the island. We have the impression of being in a movie. Few people despite the weather. Superb!
