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.

Beautiful apartment with a view to die for….

5 of 5
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?
