Owner met us in underground car park and was on site for any questions. She has to pay a tourist tax which means we got either free or reduced price on local transport. We spotted the free bike hire a few metres along the Lake but were too late to use them unfortunately. Stunning views and easy to get around - we loved the train up to Rochers de Naye, the paddle steamer across the Lake, a walk along the promenade to Chateau de Chillon, a look round the shops at Montreux. Terribly expensive to eat out and double the price for supermarket food compared to U.K. We would definitely recommend this apartment in a quiet , upmarket complex right next to the Lake.
