Estavayer-le-Lac is a little medieval town on the south-east bank of Lake Neuchâtel in the canton of Fribourg.

Estavayer-le-Lac is also known by some as The City of Roses. Carriage entrances and painted houses line up along very narrow streets.

Reflecting the purity of the Gothic style, the arcades of Chenaux Castle and Saint Lawrence’s Collegiate Church (14th century) dominate the city.

Estavayer, with its yachting marina and two bathing beaches is also a water sports paradise. Sailing, surfing and pedalo boating are all popular. One special adventure is to try the water-ski lift: here all the family, including children who can swim, can go water-skiing. We’ll probably come back in summer to try this out 🙂.
