Trélex tales

Trélex is another small village of Canton Vaud, nestled at the foothills of the Jura Mountains.
In Trélex there are about 1200 inhabitants, but when I went there to take the photos you are going to see in this gallery, they were all probably somewhere else.

Actually I met only a few horses, quite indifferent to my presence and totally phlegmatic and a couple of cats, which were, on the opposite, extremely shy and hectic, so I was unable to take any photo of them, they simply appeared for a second at a street corner and then disappeared suddenly running at high speed.

The only human presence was a quiet and nearly immobile smoking man, who looked like a symbol of the cosmopolitan features of my region, since I suppose he was from Northern Africa.

The early autumn day was glorious and the village looked very charming in its country simplicity.

If you feel like taking a walk over Trélex, you can follow me, at least virtually.

We’ll see the little church, the charming old tower, set in the middle of the village, and many other things.
A bakery, a village shop and a post office provide essential services.
The village also boasts a restaurant, the Auberge de Trélex, which oddly proposes several Polish dishes.
