Make a holiday rental home or apartment in Montreux, Switzerland your home away from home

The municipality of Montreux is ideally positioned on the banks of Lake Geneva, Switzerland, at the foot of the Alps. Hiking and walking are prominent activities in the area, which can all be performed against the stunning backdrop of the largest freshwater lake in Western Europe. Just a short distance away are some excellent skiing options and historic attractions, and Montreux has a wide variety of other attractions to cater for all interests.

Things to do in Montreux, Switzerland

As Montreux is positioned on the north-east shore of Lake Geneva, spectacular views of the lake can be witnessed from around the town, and from some of the rental accommodation that can be found on its shores. The area around the lake makes for excellent walking, whilst seasoned hikers should consider taking the funicular up the mountainside for more challenging routes. The main ski resort in the area is at Villars-sur-Ollon, which has 100km of pistes for all skiing and snowboarding abilities.

Chateau de Chillon is one of Switzerland’s most widely visited tourist attractions, and is a series of 100 independent buildings that are all interlinked to create one whole castle. Some of the older parts of the castle date back to the 11th century, and are home to historical exhibits that can be viewed by the public.

One of the more interesting landmarks in the area is a statue of Freddie Mercury, which was erected in homage to the town’s famous former resident, who was also a part owner of the famous Mountain Studios which were once in the town. Montreux also holds a memorial day in honour of Queen’s lead singer, held during the first weekend of September every year.

When it comes to nightlife, Montreux Casino was rebuilt in 1975 after a fire, and has remained a popular destination for both tourists and locals ever since. A number of restaurants, cafes and bars can also be found both in the town centre and along the shores of Lake Geneva.

Places to visit on holiday in Montreux, Switzerland

Montreux has good bus, rail and ferry links for those wishing to explore the surrounding region during their stay. An interesting day trip can be had to the market town of Vevey, just 7km along the shores of the lake. The nearest big city is Lausanne, 30km away.

The only complaint I have is the treatment meted out to us by the person who gave us the keys for the flag and whom we met on the day we left. She was very unpleasant. I have a written a separate email on this to the booking office.

                                                                                  5 of 5
                                                                                  If your looking for a location where you can combine outdoor, fantastic scenery, culture, cities and monumental mountains in a view i suggest go check it out for yourself. First time for myself going to Swiss and purpose of the travel was getting a good few days off with flexibility to go everywhere and also to experience and see alot. The location of the chalet is just outstanding. Placed on a ridge near the city centre of Leysin you open the frontdoor and stare trough the massive windows to the diablerets on the left and the dente the midi on the right. What a luxery! In the house all facilities are available, nice kitchen, great living room and enough space in the bedrooms. All clean and well maintenenced. On 5 min walk you find all you need in the small centre of Leysin, when you go down the mountain you can visit the fantastic winefields near the lake geneva and cities like montreux and vevey. On the left you can travel to the city centre of gstaad what actually is pretty fun between the rich and famous. For ourselves we came here also for some outdoor activities and we managed to hike several days for multiple hours in this outstanding enviroment. When your into cyling i can say the roads are really well and not busy outside the weekends. Happy to go back in the future. Greets Tobias
