Good humour and even if we like dogs, it's better to ask as Sir Louie (the cat) needs to agree first.
Please note that the stairs (with railing) from the sitting room to the 1st floor bedroom and bathroom are rather steep and not ideal for people with walking problems.
To stay at La Tranquille was a true pleasure. We - a Swedish couple with a 3 year old girl - felt at home at once. Greeted and introducerad to her sweet family and friends and able to come and go as we pleased, we rather felt that we were visiting a relative than just rented a place from a random stranger. As a host, Monika is warm, easy going and generous. So is her entire family. As a place, the annex at La Tranquille is old and cosy containing all necessary facilities including a piece of her lovely garden. Yes, we would like to return. Not only to the beautiful place but also to have the chance to meet family Harbaugh again.
We felt very welcome. The home is magical and the garden is beautiful. Not to mention that Monika is the perfect host. Everything was perfectly clean and as described or even better, since it is hard to describe the vibe. It is really quit and feels as if your far away from civilization although your right around the corner of montreux. I absolutely would go back there and recommend it to every one that wants to visits the surroundings.
Monika was a wonderful host. We couldn't have asked for more or gotten anyone better. She picked us up and dropped us off from the local train station and made us feel so welcomed. One night she invited my husband and me to sit outside with her and a visiting friend to have some dessert. As international travelers we really enjoyed sitting down with people from the place we are visiting. Her place was just what my husband and I really love. It was quiet and relaxing and in a beautiful location.
It is slightly out of Montreux, but getting to town is pretty easy.
We will never forget our trip to the Montruex Riviera. It was our favorite part of this Europe trip, and we both had a great time and experience with Monika at La Tranquille.
We had such a wonderful time with Monika and her family. The place is magnific, with the best view of the Lake. The house is unique, so typical and cozy. A good kitchen, good beds. Very good WiFi and TV. The perfect place to stay in Montreux. My little daughter is still asking me to go home, to Monika's house!
Monika was a perfect host! So warm, welcoming, and went out of her way to accomodate us. Couldn't ask for more!
The house itself is stunning, with breathtaking views of lake Geneva and ideally located to explore the area.
If you are looking for a peaceful swiss retreat, or a relaxing base from which to explore the swiss countryside or nearby towns and citys, then this is most definately the place for you.
We could not fault a thing. Our stay was a delight from start to finish.
We hope to visit again soon!
