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.

Chalet Les Hirondelles if by far the very best we have ever stayed at. Firstly it has the most unbelievable view from every window. It is decorated with huge style and comfort and has a wonderful friendly feel to it ... a little like being in ones own home. All the bedrooms are of a fantastic size with their own immaculate and up to date bathrooms. The kitchen is equipped with everything you will need and more. The open plan living room with central fireplace is stunning and works so well as an entertaining space and equally well as a space to sit and read your book while looking at that view! If you have children their is a great games room, TV/snug room and a wonderful hot tub - we couldn't get our children out of this! It is located just off the slopes so makes for the perfect start and end to your skiing day. I highly recommend a stay at Chalet Les Hirondelles - you will never want to stay anywhere else again!

Spacious and comfortable with good quality furnishings. It was very well equipped and had everything we needed. There were lovely views from every window and we enjoyed being able to sit out on the patio in the sunshine. Contact with the owners was excellent and the collection and return of keys to the local agent was very smooth. We certainly hope to return soon. Christine and Graham

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.
