The Author

I am Catherine Nelson-Pollard, a British freelance writer and broadcaster. I write for various publications both in the UK and Switzerland including a weekly column in English in La Côte newspaper, the column is a light hearted look at life along lake Geneva. In 2011, I published a book called “Living along Lac Léman”, which is a collection of these columns along with other articles and photos.

I am a member of the Geneva Writer’s Group, and other local groups in Nyon and the surrounding area.

This blog came about, because after nine years of living here and being asked many questions about Nyon, I decided the next logical step was to create a site based on my knowledge and the advice given to me. I also love this town and area and want others to appreciate it too.

I haven’t tried to reinvent the wheel on this site and list lots of info, there are plenty of other places I suggest you look at, all with excellent resources.

Please note also that although the facts were checked when I started the blog, things could well have changed by the time you log on here, so the usual disclaimers apply.

The Photos

The photos on this site are all mine and are all scenes from around Nyon and its area.  If you want to use any of them, send me an email. You never know, depending which photo it is, I might just oblige, especially if you ask nicely.

Thanks for taking a look at this site. If you feel it has helped you or if I have missed anything, then let me know. I welcome feedback.
