A roof terrace is also available for use by residents.Restaurants, cinema, shops and lakeside gardens are all within easy walking distance.
Two double bedrooms (each with bathroom) will comfortably sleep 4 adults and a baby's cot is also available. There is a large living area with well- equipped kitchen. Glassware and crockery are plentiful as the local food and wine MUST be sampled! Large sitting area with TV, DVD player,CD player ,Internet access, games and books. There is lift access to and from the apartment although there is a short flight of stairs inside the apartment leading from the front door to the living area.
The apartment is equipped with its own washing machine and dryer, coffee machine and juicer.
The beautiful town of Vevey is a few minutes away on the trolley bus which runs alongside the Lake from just outside the apartment, with a wealth of shops (large and small) and a picturesque lakeside walk. Trains offering a panoramic ride up into the mountains leave regularly from Montreux station which is a two-minute walk from the apartment.
Lived in this property while working in Switzerland. Now lives in the UK and returns to holiday here as often as possible.
Paula Nelson purchased this apartment in 2008
The view of the Lake and mountains which greets me every morning is quite breathtaking, and stepping out of the apartment into the centre of Montreux is always exciting. A really magical place.
The train from Geneva Airport runs every 30 minutes direct to Montreux and the apartment is literally across the road from Montreux Station, so transport is wonderfully easy. Also the bus to Villeneuve (in one direction) and Vevey (in the other direction) stops immediately outside the apartment and provides a lovely trip alongside the Lake.
We, four adults with extensive holiday experience in the Montreux/Vevey region, were thrilled with our holiday at Paula Nelson's flat in Montreux. The flat (actually, it's more like a house) has everything you could possibly need, including very comfortable beds. The place is very spacious, and well-designed for ease and convenience. Everything is very modern and extremely clean and well maintained. There is a responsive and very pleasant concierge for the development in case of problems, but we had no problems.
Paula's flat is located right on the main street of Montreux. and yet it is very quiet and relaxing. We all felt thoroughly refreshed by our stay. The flat looks out onto the wonderful walk along the lake to the Chateau of Chillon, and the view from the living room and balcony over the lake is really awesome (in the old and new meanings of that word). Because of its central location, Paula's flat is near a lot of extremely good bars and restaurants. Perhaps our favorite was Cafe Paradiso, just a few doors up the main street from Paula's place. It is a buffet-style middle-Eastern salad bar, very fresh and colorful. However, this being Switzerland, do not expect an inexpensive meal, even though it is all self-serve.
Perhaps best of all, though, was Paula, who managed to be efficient , responsible, and friendly from afar. She is very concerned about the comfort and happiness of those who stay in her place, and we truly thank her for that. We will be back and absolutely recommend Paula's flat to everyone! I hope to travel there with my grandchildren next time. They'd love it.
We spent a week in this lovely apartment, and were very sad to leave. The apartment is perfectly situated, with a view of the lake and mountains. The building is right across the street from the train station, but you would never know it inside, as it faces the lake (opposite side of the building). It was remarkably quiet. The apartment was immaculately clean and the furnishings are attractive and comfortable. The bathrooms are very nice, with fantastic water pressure in the showers. I loved all the storage space in the master bathroom. The kitchen was well equipped. Paula has given every consideration to her guests, including detailed instructions on how to use the washer and dryer (what a benefit that was!), and lots of information about the area. The building manager is friendly and helpful. We had a car, and really appreciated the parking under the building, with a reserved spot. We also appreciated the air conditioning (a rarity in Switzerland), as the temperatures were from the upper 80s to low 90s (30 - 32C) during the week we were there. I can't imagine there is a better place to stay in Vaud than Montreux, or a better apartment than Paula's. We definitely hope to return!
Wonderful high end appartment in the center of Montreux, opposite the railway station without the hassle and almost directly on the lake (view!)
Very nicely decorated, clean and stuffed with all the gimics you could hope for. With 2 beds/baths this was ideal for us to get around Switzerland by train and boat as well as just to stroll on the lake side.
Lovely, clean, very modern apartment with wonderful views of mountains and lake. Central to town shopping, restaurants etc. We watched a national band competition from the balcony one weekend, and experienced all the festivities that came with it. Owner is very responsive and flexible with dates, parking etc. Convenient to train station and other amazing sites in and around Montreux. Beautiful lake walk is across the street and we even walked to Vevey one day. Must see/do is the amazing Chillon Castle and a ride on the steamboat that circles the end of the gorgeous lake stopping at several places along the way. Also recommend the Chaplin museum full of wonderful old "home movies" of his family life there. The Swiss know how to "do" museums!
We were very comfortable with 4 people (2 couples) in this beautiful, and surprisingly quiet, apartment.. It was hard to leave what had become our "home away" enabling us to experience and explore this wonderful area of Switzerland in a unique way.
The beautiful Chateau de Chillon is a 45 minute walk alongside the Lake and the ferry from Montreux makes trips across the Lake to Vevey, Lausanne,etc.
