My spacious & comfortable studio apartment is situated in the best location on the Swiss Riviera at the border of Montreux & Clarens. It's only 30 m (yards) from the lake with spectacular panoramic lake & mountain views from the large French doors or the balcony on the 4th floor of a beautiful Belle-Epoque building with an elevator. It's near the 5-star hotels & only 150m from the Jazz Festival, Stravinski Auditorium, Miles Davis Hall, Park Vernex, Conference Center & near the Christmas Market as well & has a valuable onsite parking space, or convenient bus stop less than 75 m away. I provide Montreux Riviera Cards for all guests for unlimited free local public transportation by bus, train or funicular, and half-price on some Alpine transports farther into the mountains, some lake steamer cruises, &...

The apartment was spacious enough for the 3 of us and very clean and well looked after. The only small complaint is that we could have been provided with some more towels and the pillows were not that comfy. The location is perfect, only a...More

About the neighbourhood
My apartment is at the border of Montreux & Clarens, near the 5-star hotels, 30 meters from the lake & flowered walkway, 2 or 3 minutes by taxi or bus from the Montreux Train Station to Vernex bus stop (or a leisurely & scenic less than 10-minute walk), 150 meters from Stravinski Auditorium, Miles Davis Hall, Conference Center, close to everything but far enough away from the hustle & bustle of central Montreux. My apartment has panoramic views of the lake, mountains & town with sunrise to the left and sunset to the right. From bed, without the light-blocking drapes drawn, you can see first light on the mountaintops across the lake. There's a mini-mart with bakery open from roughly 6 am until 10 or 11 pm just 150 meters away. On-site private parking space is ava... more
Getting around
So easy with or without a car. With a car, my apartment is only 2 km (a mile) from the autoroute exit/entrance and right along the lake so you can't get lost.There's a private parking space available at a small extra charge of 10 CHF/day. Without a car, the train station is less than a kilometer or half mile away and there is a bus from right in front of the train station to my apartment which is the very next stop so it only takes 2 minutes. It's about 75 meters or about 250' from my apartment to the bus stop where another bus goes along the lake in both directions between Vevey Funicular and Villeneuve (where you can rent bicycles). The Promenade Fleuri (flowered walkway) runs along the lake for about 20 miles for pedestrians and bicycles
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Geneva Airport (Cointrin): 60.0 km
Railway: Montreux: 1.0 km
Ferry: Montreux or Clarens: 0.5 km
There are 2 direct trains per hour from Geneva Airport to the Montreux Train Station. The train station is attached to the airport, so it's convenient to take the train which takes a little over an hour. By car, it's only about 45 minutes from Geneva Airport & the Autoroute exit is about 2 km from my apartment. Montreux is on the direct train line from Italy so only 2 1/2 hours from Milan or 6 hours from Venice with no change of trains. From the Montreux Train Station, it's about 2 minutes by taxi or 2 minutes by bus to my apartment on the Rue du Lac using the new bus line that departs from right in front of the train station as Vernex is the very next stop , or a 3-minute bus ride if you pick up your Montreux Riviera Cards from the Tourist Office on the lake when you fi... more
