Enter into the special atmosphere of the Gottéron valley, an area dear to the Fribourg inhabitants for its historical heritage and its special setting. A couple of steps from the historic old town of Fribourg, the valley offers a place of relaxation and a splendid get away.
One can see for one’s self the chamois that have chosen to live on the cliffs. Several hiking routes are offered along the river which provides its name. Between wooden staircases and footbridges, the gorges offer an idyllic setting for family picnics. It is in this valley that seems to stretch out its arms where Jacques Bossy and his fish farm are located.
The third generation to operate the site, Jacques Bossy mainly produces rainbow trout. Offered whole or filleted, fresh or smoked, trout from the Gottéron valley are then prepared in thousands of different ways. According to the fish farmer, who offers a selection of recipes on his Internet site, the best is blue trout. "Cooked in foil or paper, with a little white wine and butter and decorated with a few vegetables, it is regal!" confirms Jacques Bossy.
It is also possible to fish for trout yourself. A pond and some fishing rods are available for budding anglers. Why not cook your trout yourself in one of the numerous picnic areas which line the walking trails?
