We were thrilled to have a two-week house swap in a lovely home in Perroy which is on the banks of the lake between Geneve and Lausanne. The area is filled with vineyards and little villages overlooking this glorious lake with the far side France and the alps. We could see Mont Blanc from the house!

Driving was easy and we made lots of day trips around the area but also enjoyed picnics at the Perroy beach and park area. Charlotte also went riding a few times at a nearby stable. It is quite expensive in Switzerland so we loaded up at Aldi/Lidl and made good use of the lovely kitchen and house we were in and packed picnics when we could.

Of course we did have to sample fondue in Gruyere after taking a cable car up the mountain and having coffee on the summit.
