Lucens, in the beautiful Valley of the Broye (between Lausanne and Bern) is a good starting point for hikes, bicycle rides and horseback riding (available nearby). It´s also a pleasant stop for pilgrims on the Road to Compostella. We named our former milk and cheese factory "LA VOIE LACTEE" (The Milky Way) as a reminder of its former use. It is located just below the impressive medieval castle that dominates the little town. You will find us opposite the Café de l'Hôtel de Ville; just a 3 minute walk from the train station. Three bedrooms in the attic that were once used by the apprentice cheese makers, are now at your disposal. Breakfast with home made products is served in the old cheese laboratory. We have baby and children's beds available. A television, internet connections, either hard-wired or Wi-fi and a guest computer (a Mac) are at your disposal. It will be our joy to welcome you here.

We, I, my father and daughter, stayed in William and Camilla's B&B in April 2013 and the second floor suite perfectly met our needs. The suite was spacious, luxurious and clean, with a big kitchen and an office that came with a Mac to use! We felt truly at home while staying there. The kitchen was fully supplied with all kinds of ingredients and other dry foods. It's located in an idyllic town with a lovely forest trail nearby, and with a rental car it is convenient to go any where. We drove to Lausanne from a secondary road. It was beautiful and there is no need to ride the golden train for the view after that drive. William and Camilla are wonderful hosts and very helpful to give suggestions for scenery tour. Camilla made great scrambled eggs and Williams had a great sense of humor. They were both fun to talk with. In addition, they went above and beyond the role of typical hosts that when we left few items, they shipped to us at USA at no cost for us though we offered to pay the shipping cost. I highly recommend staying with William and Camilla and would most definitely choose to stay here again if I were to visit the area.
