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.
