The team

Many glasses of wine and evenings-on-the-town ago, we met for the first time at Le P’tit Bar on the urging of a mutual friend in America. We were both new to Lausanne; its cobble-stoned streets, cafés and charming squares. As our friendship grew, so did our love for our adopted city. The Lausanne Guide to Life and Style is where we share our discoveries; it is a place where our love affair with this city can continue to blossom and where we hope you will be inspired to get out and explore with us.
