A trip to Montreux is always a delight. Strolling along the lac Geneva is a must. You’ll soak up the atmosphere of this beautiful city and admire the view of the mountains.

Cute and clean, Montreux offers a range of classic French village architecture. A n harmonious pallet of Bright blues, pure whites, lemon, sage, forrest green, rust, and red colors soothe and excite the eye. A French lake side paradise window into the past.

The old town of Montreux requires a walk uphill of about 25 minutes. It is a very quiet part of Montreux with narrow cobblestone streets lined with historic houses. A typical Swiss village. There is not much to see here, but go for the atmosphere....More
