Montreux, Switzerland



This beautiful spot on the edge of lake Geneva was a hidden gem I discovered when looking for a relaxing two night stay in 2014. I wanted something close enough to family I was visiting just over the border in France and wanted to get just a glimpse of the Swiss mountains for my first time visiting Switzerland. Recently I visited again and felt just as charmed by this place.


I'd recommend staying for 2-3 nights to explore the area but even just staying overnight you could get a great experience.

  • Visit Chateau de Chillon - I've done a bit more detail and pictures on this further down this post as I've visited twice and think both beautiful and a really fascinating place.
