Where is it?
With a population of around 20,000, the picturesque township of Montreux is almost medieval in style. Directly up the hill about 100 meters, balanced precariously on the cliff, is an ancient stone church which is probably many times older than the oldest building in Australia. And less than 2 kilometers along the lake shore â in clear view of our balcony â is a 1,000 year old castle â ChÃ¢teau de Chillion â which has been fully restored. Chillion draws more visitors than any other ancient site in the country.
There are more than 20 ski resorts within 20 kilometers of the apartment â the closest being just 15 minutes up the mountain on a cog-train. You can even snow ski throughout summer on a glacier less than 60 minutes away in one of the world's top two ski resorts.
As a location, Montreux is well connected - its only 45 minutes away (by car or train) from Genevaâs international airport - from where you can fly direct to most major cities in the world. Zurich has a larger airport, and is a pleasant two hour drive from Montreux. By car it's less than a short day-trip to half a dozen different countries, and a short flight to many more.
The Montreux experience rejuvenates the soul, replenishes the spirit, and restores perspective.
