The charm of Lausanne
“Lausanne, with its slender steeples, Lausanne, whose white houses seen from a distance resemble a procession of swans drying themselves in the sun, and which has set the little town of Ouchy by the side of the lake, a sentry posted there to warn travellers not to pass by without paying tribute to the Vaudois queen; our boat approached with deference and a party of its passengers disembarked on the bank.” So wrote Alexandre Dumas, recalling his visit to the principal city of the canton of Vaud. A poetic vision for a town that offers the whole spectrum of feelings, just like the property in Lausanne, which presents its best aspect with its luminosity and ample spaces.

Lausanne and its prestigious universities
Situated on the shores of Lake Geneva, the capital of Vaud canton is as famous for its prestigious universities (EPFL, ECAL, École Hôtelière, etc.) as for its breathtaking views of the Alps and its superb properties. It also offers its residents lovely urban walks (Quais d’Ouchy) and superb lakeside beaches (Jetée de la Compagnie, Pully). An ideal town for families looking for a house or apartment near schools and recreational activities. Lausanne is close to everything: Geneva International Airport is just 40 minutes away by car, while the nearest ski resorts, such as Diablerets and Champéry, can be reached in less than an hour.
An exceptional cultural programme
A town built on three hills, with a rare allure, Lausanne could almost be confused with San Francisco with its steep streets. Here, the pleasures of city walking are unsurpassed with the many pedestrian and cobbled streets in the old town, dominated by its imposing Cathedral, dating from 1405. Culturally, there is always something on! Arts institutions include the Béjart Ballet, the Fondation de l’Hermitage, the Collection de l’Art Brut in the Château de Beaulieu, the Musée de l’Elysée and the Photography Museum, together with many independent galleries. Art lovers will be in paradise here.
The expansion of urban life
Lausanne is also a city that is developing in both an economic and urban sense. With its reputation as a well-off, bourgeois community, the city has 145,000 inhabitants and 93,000 jobs, while harmoniously mixing social classes, cultures and nationalities from all walks of life. This dynamic is also reflected in the growth of construction of new real estate projects, of which Cardis Sotheby’s International Realty is proud to be at the forefront. Despite its small size – about three times smaller than the city of Geneva and its canton – Lausanne is a city that has a presence at the world level. Proof of this is the presence of more than 40 sports federations, generating more than 2,150 jobs, together with around 15 international sports organisations, and the headquarters of the International Olympics Committee.
Lausanne, an ideal city for sports
It can never be said often enough: Vaud’s main city is one that loves sports, above all when it comes to supporting its athletes and professional teams. For a long time, football has been a favourite rallying point for the people of Lausanne, particularly around FC Lausanne Sport, whose home is the La Pontaise stadium, where the Athletissima international athletics meeting also takes place each year. Often “on the move” between the Challenge League and the Super League, Lausanne Sport has been dethroned in recent years by the Lausanne Hockey Club (LHC) which has surprised with its good results, despite a reduced budget. A cause for celebration is that each of the two teams will have new sports venues by 2020! Local clubs are close to the hearts of the people of Lausanne.
Renowned nights out in Lausanne
Lausanne is no stranger to the party scene, so it’s impossible to get bored! We might even say it’s engraved in the city’s DNA, as a pioneer in the field of electronic music for many years. Together with its mythical night clubs (Mad, D! Club) and its concert venues (Romandie, Les Docks), the city and its region are also home to many very popular musical events such as the Label Swiss or the Cully Jazz.
La dolce vita in Lausanne
In conclusion, Lausanne’s lifestyle is dynamic without being frantic, contemporary without losing its simplicity. Thanks to its many parks (Parc de l’Hermitage, Parc de Mon-Repos, Parc de Milan, among others) and other green spaces, its markets and craft shops, here people take the time to enjoy beautiful things and great products. There are also numerous good, excellent and even starred restaurant tables. In short, Lausanne is a modern city on a human scale, one that is consumed slowly and appreciated for a long time.
