Nyon : practicalities

Plenty of trains serve Nyon from both directions, although note that not all those heading east go to Lausanne – some branch off at Morges on their way to Yverdon. Regular boats serve Nyon from both Geneva and Lausanne. The tourist office is one minute’s walk from the station, at 7 Avenue Viollier (June–Sept daily 8.30am–noon & 1.30–5.30pm; Oct–May Mon–Fri same times; 022/361 62 61, www.nyon.ch), and offers a free guided walk around the town, starting from the Place du Château (June–Sept Thurs–Sat 10am).

Nyon’s best hotel is the Beau-Rivage, 49 Rue de Rive (022/365 41 41, fax 365 41 65; f), a fabulous pile below the castle that’s been in business since 1481 and boasts large, traditionally furnished rooms, most looking lakewards. The charming Hostellerie du XVIe Siècle, 2 Place du Marché (022/361 24 41, fax 362 85 66; a–b) is an atmospheric arcaded building in the cobbled Old Town, renovated throughout; some rooms are en suite, others not. Rue de Rive has any number of places to eat fresh fish, but the fillet of perch (Fr.30) served at Au Cheval Blanc at no. 62 must rank with the best. More affordable pizzas and pasta menus (Fr.16–18) can be munched at Le Léman, 28 Rue de Rive.
