Spring has finally sprung in Nyon and last Sunday locals, tourists (and lake birds !) were out and about in the sunny weather. Take a look at a selection of photos taken around the town at the week-end.
Nyon and La Côte region were mentioned in the property section of the Financial Times on May 3rd, see article here, however one sentence in the article – “prices for property in Le Parc de la Serine, situated close to the town begin at CHF 338,000” is slightly misleading. These new build apartments are not actually in Nyon but in the commune of Vich , approximately two kilometres away. Vich is in the district of Nyon but it is a commune and has a syndic (mayor) of its own. Its residents are called “Les Vichois” “Les Vichoises”.
House Worth a lot ..
The CHF 48 million house for sale in Prangins that is also mentioned in the article can be seen across the water from Nyon (see photo below). The original owner of the house was Jean-Philippe Worth, son of Charles Frederic Worth the fashion designer. The “House of Worth” brand was revived in 1999. See article here Lady Gaga has been seen wearing Worth clothing There are more photos of the property here for those who may be interested in buying it (or are simply curious)
Date for your diary – There will be a big naval parade in Nyon on Sunday 19th May, if the weather stays fine this will be a fabulous event and make a great day out for all the family – details coming soon.
