Charmey near Gruyères special offer

Had a fantastic day on Thursday in Charmey. Bought day tickets for 48CHF- to include return trip to the top (Vounetz) with Gondola- local produce tester meal at the summit restau = mini soup, mini macaroni cheese, a platter of cold meats and cheeses, a small quiche- followed by a small meringue, 'bricelet' (local biscuit) filled with local clotted cream, and a small slice of 'vin cuit' (cooked wine) tart. After the 2 hour streneous walk on the Aiguilles Vertes path - very well deserved. Also included was a 3 hour visit to the Bains de Charmey, the beautiful local spa (including sauna (1 with and one without), hamam). Excellent value, which combined with a visit in the morning to Gruyères village would make a brilliant day out for anybody in the Lausanne/Vevey/Montreux/Neuchatel area.

Re: Charmey near Gruyères special offer

Anthony, go on and try it! Also went over the Jaun pass to Spiez and Thun, walked the Gorges de la Jogne from Broc to Charmey, 1 day in Gruyères and 1 day to do Rougemont, Saanen, Gstaad and over Jaun again. My (British) friend pushed this little guy as he was blocking her way out of the restau in Gstaad- totally oblivious to the fact he was Polanski- the look he gave her, lol. Yes, a fantastic week. BTW went to Bulle one afternoon and found it to be a very pleasant little town - and wondered why you hate it so much?!

Honest, you might get to appreciate the area a lot more if you explored a bit more. Bonne chance xx

If you get off the gondola half way up, there's also a seilpark (rope walkways up in the trees) - always good fun, for whole family entertainment.

And also the fat tyres 'trotinettes' - which looked great fun- also at mid-point.
