The village of Montherod is welcoming approximately 500 inhabitants. It is situated between la Côte and the Jura and is on the axis of Allaman-Gimel, in the direction of the Marchairuz. If it enjoys the climate of the Lemanic arc, its tranquillity is close to the one of a village of the countryside.

A story tells that in 1794 there was in this village an illegal workshop which was making, to the detriment of France, fake bank notes at the instigation of the Ambassador of England in Bern. Nevertheless, it is a middle-class person of Montherod that in 1973 became the Minister of Finance of the Confederacy. It was Mister Georges-André Chevallaz.


Come and discover the Arboretum.
