The village, which has only 500 inhabitants, is friendly.  If you happen to meet someone on its steep and peaceful streets, Bonjour is the word. They are proud of their village, which has a number of old buildings with history. Top of the list of attractions is the Grand chalet renovated by the French artist Balthus (Count Balthazar). Then there is the medieval church dating back to 1316 and the clock tower. The tower looks charming – but was in fact a PRISON in the AUSTERE old days. The Hotel de Ville is another part of Rossiniere’s history, now a charming family hotel, renovated last year.

From Rossiniere you are a few stops on the Golden Pass panoramic train to Gstaad for the high life. The main activity here is walking – fabulous walks along the valley, round the lake, or high up among forest, pastures and cows. A 2-hour walk takes you to Château d’Oux, from where you can return on the Golden Pass train. On these alpine slopes wild life abounds. As the owner of small poodles, Libby my host experienced the scary side of that … her little toy poodle was attacked by a wild boar. The tiny dog had a huge wound, which fortunately healed.

    May I simply just say what a relief to discover a person that truly knows what they’re talking about on the web. You certainly know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. A lot more people have to read this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised you’re not more popular given that you definitely have the gift.
