Beautifully situated apartment right next to the lake

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very clean and comfortable- the bedrooms are very quiet as they face a small stream and park. The kitchen was well equipped and the DVD player worked well.

The absolute highlight was the large patio in front of the lounge- a generous sunny space with spectacular views over the mountains. From this patio is a 100 metres or so to a small lakeside beach- another 5 minutes walk one way to a lovely 50 metre swimming pool( and paddle board hire)

5 minutes the other way to the co-op and station (5mins by train to Montreux)

Chris and marie-laure were very helpful and charming

We will definitely come back and stay here!!

Lovely and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and comfortable. We had easy access to the lake and the pool. I loved being able to walk to the market, train, and bus. There were lovely sunsets enjoyed at the lakeside along with gorgeous views of the Alps and the water. It was quiet and restful. We really enjoyed our stay.

5 Star Retreat with a View

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautifully appointed, two bedrooms apartment - plenty of inside and outside living space, very much a home-away-from-home. The living room is a wonderful place to relax with a magnificent uninterrupted view of the Alps through large glass windows, a television with multi-language channels perfect for evenings in – and of course WIFI so you can keep in touch if you choose to. The kitchen is very well equipped with Nespresso machine, cooktop, oven, fridge and dishwasher. Washer/dryer a few steps down. Thoughtful touches like coffee, spices and oils at the ready - we cooked up some very nice breakfasts and dinners. The master bedroom was lovely and quiet! Extremely comfortable. A nice modern bathroom with an outstanding shower worthy of the best spas. A second bedroom that is competitive to the master. Then there is also the main terrace that leads off the living room with nice comfortable modern furniture and the view again, nothing quite like waking up and scanning that vista. There’s plenty of space to relax and simply enjoy.

The location, just 5 minutes from the quaint Villeneuve center, with many shops and restaurants to suit any taste. 20 minute walk to Castle Chillon off the promenade that is literally at the door. Marie and Chris are such excellent hosts, going that extra mile to welcome you and make you feel at home, and after many years of traveling I can attest they are superb hosts, always on-hand, very organised, helpful and friendly, nothing too much trouble. I highly recommend staying here, we had a truly terrific week!

Beautiful Lake Geneva

  • 5 of 5

Loved this lakeside apartment, has everything you need and with the added bonus of a local CO-OP just around the corner to stock up on essentials.

Very tranquil setting and so easy to get around the lake visiting the neighbouring towns/villages such as Montreux, Vevey etc either on foot or quicker by bicycle (there is a bike rental just up the road).

Chris and Marie-Laure were very helpful and made sure everything was ok and even gave us a lift back to the station for our return journey. Journey back to the airport is easy by train, changing at Lausanne.

Would love to return one day and revisit Lake Geneva, as well as stay in this lovely, clean, modern apartment.

Thanks Chris and Marie-Laure for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home - The Dixon family

Fantastic holiday, stunning location & great accom

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly fabulous holiday. The apartment was very well equipped with a lovely sun terrace, superb for lazing about or having a meal at night over-looking the lake. Villeneuve is really nice 'village', with Montreux a short bus or car ride away - or about 45mins on foot, and a great base to be able to explore many of the amazing towns and villages nearby - or up into the Alps.

Marie-laure and Christopher made us feel very welcome and were on hand to answer any questions - many thanks for a fabulous holiday - we're certainly struck on Lake Geneva and am sure we'll be back. Pretty sure our dog loved it too! Thanks again, David, Jayne & Hershey :)

LAKESIDE MAGIC!!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is everything a holiday apartment should be when you are looking for comfort hospitality tranquility and easy access to Villeneuve and the locality. Perfectly situated for lake and mountain interests in Summer and Winter.

The detail on the website is EXACT and can be trusted in every detail.

The kitchen is well equipped and the lounge and bedroom areas are welcoming and comfortable.

The shower room and cloakroom are new with ultra modern fittings and colour schemes.

All perfectly described and represented with photos on the website

We arrived by car from England and the underground car park adjacent to the apartment is a major plus for convenience and security. The local transport is efficient and regular which means a holiday can be enjoyed without a car.

We have not mentioned cleanliness because there is no need to mention something which cannot be improved upon !!!0

During our stay in May/June we appreciated the space and freedom to enjoy mountain drives, lakeside walks, paddle steamer trips, good food and wine ..............sunshine and peace............................................

The apartment owners are understanding and professional with "mountains" of experience and local knowledge which greatly enhanced the quality of our stay.

Our holiday on Lake Geneva was filled with new experiences and happy memories and we will return as soon as we can to venture further into Switzerland.
