Arnex tales


Site Meter

Here is another little tessera of my unpretentious mosaic of Swiss villages.

I have a special liking for this tiny village called Arnex, because, besides its simple charm, it has the peculiarity to have not any apparent attraction, it has not any church, any, cafe, any shop, and any post office either....

Arnex has 130 inhabitants only and itís set in the middle of Vaud countryside.
If you go to Arnex it means you really wanted to get there on purpose, because itís not on the main roads of the region, maybe also this peculiarity makes it so pleasant to me.

I deeply like Arnex, its tidy farmhouses, its merry cats, its quiet cows, its small and peaceful cemetery.

I have tried to capture its relaxing atmosphere and its colours through my photos.
I hope youíll enjoy this virtual visit..
