                                                                                        This lovely apartment has everything you need for the perfect holiday, whether you want to be active (skiing/walking/etc) or simply chill out and enjoy the peace and quiet and gorgeous view. A huge attraction for us is this apartment’s fabulous terrace - far larger and better than the more usual balconies some apartments have. We’ve spent many happy hours just sitting with a glass of wine watching the birds and sunsets. Even when the weather isn’t so great, the big picture window still enables easy viewing of the idyllic scenery. There are only two very slight draw-backs as far as we are concerned and they are very minor indeed and certainly not the fault of apartment itself: 1. We find the swimming pool water too cool to be pleasant and we usually only manage one ‘dip’ per stay just to say we tried it. 2. Although the apartment block is only a short walk from the town centre and is all downhill going out, it’s quite a steep climb for the last few hundred yards on the way back. Helps to get us fit though! We’ve stayed here twice now and certainly hope to be back again, and again……need I say more?

Very happy with the location, a short walk to the lakeside and shops. Good transport links near too. The view of the water was a little limited, with some large trees in the way, still good views of the mountains though. Could have done with some detailed instructions for finding the apartment (struggled a little in the dark). Would be happy to stay there again if visiting the region, as very comfortable and a good base for exploring the area. Chateau Chillon a highlight, easily reachable by road or boat. The lakeside is beautiful, whichever direction you travel in. Easy to walk into Vevey or even along to Montreux. The mountains are impressive too of course, access by bus, train and furnicular are easy options if you don't have a car.
