Additional Location Information

Situated on the Rue du Lac, restaurants, shops & the “Promenade Fleuri,” the flower-lined lakeside promenade, are only steps away. It is as close as you can get to the Montreux Jazz Festival a 2-minute walk. The 'Vernex-Jazz Festival' bus stop is 100 steps away & is THE bus stop for the Jazz Festival with Stravinsky Auditorium, Miles Davis Hall, Park Vernex & the Conference Center about 150 meters/yards away. There are boat stops a few hundred yards away in either direction in Montreux & Clarens from which you can take historic “Belle Epoque” lake steamers to various charming ports in both Switzerland & France.

A stay here comes with a bonus of Montreux Riviera Cards that entitle you to unlimited free local bus, train & funicular transport & half-price for some tourist trains & funiculars to the mountains, boats, museums & castles in the area including the famous Chateau de Chillon,..

Visit the famous Chateau de Chillon, go wine-tasting in the Lavaux, or make day trips to the mountains for sightseeing in Gruyeres, skiing in Gstaad or Verbier or ballooning in Chateaux d’Oex. Cruise Lake Geneva on historic turn-of-the-century lake steamers & visit charming Swiss lakeside villages or visit St. Gingolph or the charming Medieval village of Yvoire on the French side of the lake. In the summer, sailboats, rowboats or paddleboats can be rented. There are several free public beaches in Montreux & Clarens for swimming, ping-pong, volleyball, etc. Children will enjoy the Aquaparc waterpark in Le Bouveret. Children of any age will enjoy the historic carousel lakeside in Vevey & the miniature train that runs along the “Promenade Fleuri” in Montreux in the summer.

The Chateau de Chillon is right in Montreux in a dramatic setting on the lake. A stunning way to arrive is by lake steamer. If you haven’t seen the movie “Daisy Miller” set at the turn-of-the-century in Vevey & Montreux, it’s worth renting to preview the beautiful “Belle Epoque” buildings, lake steamers, & the Chateau de Chillon, which are still much as they were at the turn-of-the-century & why this movie was filmed on location. This apartment is in one of those beautiful “Belle Epoque” buildings with high ceilings & ornate balconies. Vevey & Montreux were home to Charlie Chaplin. Vladimir Nabokov, Hemmingway. Lord Byron's “The Prisoner of Chillon” made the castle a tourist attraction starting in 1816 & you can see his name carved in one of the stone pillars in the dungeon.

Among my favorite museums to visit in the area are the Maison Visinand & the Museum of Old Montreux in the Vielle Ville (old-town) Montreux, the Museum of Games in La Tour-de-Peilz, the Jenisch Art Museum, Photo Museum, History Museum, Wine Museum & Alimentarium (a museum about food in the home of Nestle) in Vevey, the Musee de l’Art Brut (Jean Dubuffet’s museum of “outsider art”), Hermitage and Olympic Museums in Lausanne, & the Fondation Gianadda with its antique car collection, outdoor sculpture park, Roman amphitheatre & world-class art exhibitions in Martigny. There are wonderful art galleries, festivals & fairs for art & antiques in the area. There is a weekly farmer’s market in Montreux on Friday mornings & in Vevey on Saturday mornings.
