Échichens

Situated amidst the vineyards, the village of Échichens is famous for its wines. From “Signal d’Échichens” or from the magnificent white church, the view on Lake Geneva is simply striking.

Situated between Jura and Lake Geneva, facing the Mont Blanc, Échichens benefits from a privileged situation. The commune is close to Morges. Its elegant white church, built in 1893, can be admired thanks to its hillside situation (465 metres above sea level) between the vineyards.

There are three winemakers working in their wine cellar and one winegrower who deal with 30 hectares of vineyard and produce high-quality wine. They are widely known and appreciated for their work, originally working for the Morges appellation.

The numerous events (athletic, artistic, theatrical, social), organized by the six enterprises, artists or craftsmen, show that Échichens is a lively village. At Echichens there are also three establishments of public and regional utility: Cité radieuse, École Pestalozzi, EMS Fondation Silo and also the bakery-grocery and the Café Vaudois with its beautiful terrace.

At Echichens there is also a place called Le Signal. In former times this place was used as an intermediate station for visual signals such as fire signals. They were used in order to alert in case of war. Nowadays, Le Signal d’Échichens is a magnificent outlook on the vineyards, Lake Geneva and the Alps.
