About our home

Breathtaking lake views framed by Swiss and French alps and accented with the ancient Chillon Castle . Balcony with awning to dine and relax on. Wonderful new modern kitchen with huge breakfast bar island. Upright piano. One bath includes sink and toilet and the other has sink and tub/shower (so almost 2 bathrooms!). New wood floors throughout and carpet in bedrooms. One bedroom has 2 twin beds and the other has a large Queen. 15 minute walk on the lake to Montreux center. Close to Lausanne, Bern, Geneva, Zermatt, Verbier, Leysin and Crans Montana. Bus stop in front of building. Street parking about 5 -10 minutes away.
Sorry, no children or pets because we have just added new hardwood floors, white kitchen cabinets, new countertops and are located on the 4th floor with a large balcony.

More about us

  1. My husband and I enjoy hiking, biking, skiing, visiting castles, lunching out and cooking. I love horseback riding. He enjoys golf, bowling and playing piano.

  2. I work in real estate sales as a broker/owner of our own small company as well as a lawyer in our law firm. My husband is the main partner of our law firm. We have two adult children.

  3. We appreciate a variety of home styles and locations. Our apartment in Switzerland was purchased by my parents in the early 80's and now belongs to the next generation. It is a beautiful area with plenty to see and do or to just stay put and stare at the view!

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Take a picturesque walk on the Quai aux Fleurs (flowered lakeside path) to the famed 11th century Castle of Chillon or the town of Montreux. Bike ride in nearby forests, along the Rhône river or around the lake. Catch a boat ride across the lake and have lunch in France or nearby Vevey famous for Nestlé and Charlie Chaplin. Visit the Unesco world heritage site Lavaux vineyards and sample great wine from the nearby Valais region as well. Many great ski resorts are a short drive or train ride away and they are wonderful for hiking in the summer and having lunch at a buvette on top of a mountain. Often you will see the famed Swiss cows and hear their musical bells on these walks.
Montreux is famous for its July Jazz Festival (more rock than jazz now,) Freddy Mercury statue, recording studio museum and beautiful Christmas market. You can take several breathtaking train rides from Montreux, including one to Rochers de Naye which has hiking, amazing views, restaurants, an alpine garden, yurts and hang gliding. Another option is taking the panoramic Golden Pass train ride to glamorous Gstaad. Also close by is medieval cobblestoned Gruyères which sits perched on a promontory with great views and of course great cheese dishes and meringues! The capital Bern is delightful with many 16th century fountains, arcaded street shops, a lovely ice blue river winding around it and of course, the bears!
