Bed and Breakfast in Montreux
With about 26,000 inhabitants, Montreux is called the capital of the Vaud Riviera because of its wonderful location on Lake Geneva. Nestled in the beautiful countryside and surrounded by vineyards and magnificent snow-capped mountains, this town is a popular destination for guests from around the world. In part due to its mild Mediterranean climate, Montreux has been a popular resort since the 19th century, and has attracted aristocrats, monarchs (such as Elisabeth “Sissi”, Empress of Austria), or intellectuals like Leo Tolstoy. With its splendid hotels, the waterfront offers a unique view over Lake Geneva to the Western Alps. The lake’s several-kilometre-long boulevard enchants walkers with its beautiful gardens, and exotic flowers and trees. Montreux is also a cultural and music city, and is well known internationally by the Montreux Jazz Festival In addition, other prestigious events, such as the Golden Award of Montreux for advertisers, the Montreux Choral Festival and the Montreux Comedy Festival, take place here. Guests who spend their holidays here or just like to stay overnight will find a wide variety of fashionable hotels from the late 19th century, centrally-located apartments, bed & breakfasts with stunning views, plus affordable private accommodations and rooms. Montreux is a popular starting point for a variety of excursions in the area. The nearby moated castle Chillon, a fascinating medieval jewel, is easily accessible by boat. The interesting sights of Vevey, Lausanne, or Geneva invite you to take a leisurely stroll. Particularly impressive is a walk through the Lavaux vineyards (declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site) with its characteristic terracing and medieval villages. In the winter, well-known Vaud ski resorts such as Leysin, Villars, Gryon, Les Rochers de Naye, and Les Pléiades attract sports enthusiasts from near and far.
