Montreux City flat with superb view

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Rue du Théâtre, Montreux, Vaud 1820, Switzerland

The Space

Ski season is approaching! You can access many ski resorts in minutes. Walk to the train station and be on the ski slopes without needing a car. The apartment is a renovated 90sqm 2 bedroom located in the center of town. The views of the French Alps across the lake are breathtaking. The kitchen is large and can easily fit everyone comfortably around it's table. It's fully equipped with most necessary cooking conveniences. Rooms look out onto the lake, and one of our favorite places to sit and sip local wine is on the balcony looking over the casino pool, the lake and mountains beyond.

From it you can walk to Chillon Castle, The Montreux Casino is across the street and you can pay your respect to the famous Freddie Mercury statue just minutes away. During the summer you can literally walk to the lake shore in your bathing suit, and dive into the pristine waters of Lake Geneva.

Just an hour away from Geneva airport is the town of Montreux. On the shores of lake Geneva, Montreux is about 30 minutes from many Alpine resorts. You can even walk to the train station with your skis and be on the slopes in 45 minutes. Montreux, famous for its Jazz Festival, is also renown for its beauty, clean air and calm.

On rainy days you can watch TV, or search the web with our WiFi as well as cooking up a meal in our fully equipped kitchen. Read one of our many books, or watch the sunset over the French Alps. But chances are you will spend more time enjoying the area than camping out in the apartment.

Access to the apartment is a ten minute walk for train station. If you drive, a parking spot is available in the parking garage under the apartment building for an additional charge. (It is occupied with our car, so please ask in advance about the parking availability and costs so we can make arrangements).

Shops and restaurants are minutes away since we are in the town's center. What's unique about our apartment is that it's smack in the middle of a busy international town, yet feels like it's nestled in Swiss serinity. In seconds you can dive in the lake or go on a shopping spree. In minutes you can party at Lausanne's hip club scene or whizz down powdered ski slopes! And in an hour you're back at Geneva airport alreday planning your next visit.

  • This was an exceptional experience, Alexandre was very friendly and helpful. The apartment is very spacious, nicely decorated, and comfortable. The little balcony is amazing, the view is a dream, could have sat here all day just soaking up the sun and enjoying the view. The best hotels in town can't rival this. Montreux is beautiful and there are endless excursions you can make in a day. The close proximity to the station and the waterfront was ideal. I hope I can return and spend more time here.

  • Alex was very easy and efficient, responding to our questions, providing directions. The flat was clean and beautiful, and it has a grand view of Lake Geneva. If we ever return to Montreux, this would be our first choice.

  • The flat was just what I expected, lovely, beautiful view, centrally located. Unfortunately the key wasn't under the mat as expected and just by luck I knocked on the right door to find the appropriate neighbor. Unfortunately his son was out walking the dog so we had to wait in the corridor. But fortunately his neighbor was a friendly chap and we enjoyed our visit while waiting for his son to show up with the key. Apparently we had not been expected, but all was well. Thanks Alex for your flexibility and trust with your home.

  • Although Alex was unable to meet us at the apartment, his neighbors were easy to communicate with and so hospitable during our stay! The apartment was a luxury to us-five friends on a weekend trip. I'm pretty sure you can't beat the location anywhere. We walked from the train station, to the Chateau Chillon, up into Old Town, etc. It was foggy while we were there but the view was still stunning- I can only imagine how amazing it would be on a clear day! The flat itself is spacious and very comfortable, and we enjoyed having meals in the kitchen at the big high top! The only "negative" was that the toilet took a little while to refill after each use, but really this was a non-issue. I would totally recommend staying here as we had a great experience!

  • Alex is a very fun and interesting person. I really enjoyed our chats. He is also a great host, very helpful and accommodating. The apartment is very comfortable and well equipped, with a fantastic view and great location. I would highly recommend the apartment. If you're lucky, Alex will be in town and you will have the opportunity to meet him.

  • Alex is a really good host. The appartment is really pretty , spacious (we were 4 people - 2 couples ) and well located (not far from train station and in center of the city ) It's really convenient to go every where from there. In conclusion we really enjoyed the time in Montreux.

    Alex Thanks for everything!

  • Lovely and clean apartment ! Convenient location.

    Directions to the apartment from train station was a little misleading, we ended up taking a long and tiring walk.

    Everything else fine !

    Response from Alexandre:

    Thank you! I have since corrected the error in the directions. Sorry about that.

  • Montreux is beautiful and Alexandre's flat is the perfect place to land if you like a central location. Anything you need is within walking distance. Less then a block from the lake and the apartment has excellent views of both Lake Geneva and the Alps.
    Alexandre accomodated us in every way. We would definitely recommend his apartment and stay here again. The apartment is spacious, clean and well equipped. Enjoy!

  • The apartment is very beautiful and offers a beautiful view as is promised. It is located opposite the casino and is well connected by public transport. Many dining options and departmental stores are available in the vicinity. The apartment interiors and amenities were good.

    But there is only one word of advise - Do not take a lot of luggage with you. The apartment is located on the 4th floor and the building does not have a lift. I had a difficult time taking up and down big suitcases for myself and my family.

  • This is a great apartment to stay in Montreux. The apartment is suitable for four people, as there are two bedrooms. The apartment has an excellent view of Lake Geneva. Alex was a great host who met us at the train station and was available if we required him during our stay. The apartment is on the fourth floor in a building with no lifts, so those with mobility issues should not stay here (this was not a problem for us at all).

About
Born Swiss, yet raised American. I emigrated to the USA at the age of 10, and lived in several places like Colorado, Seattle, Boston and NYC for more than 27 years. Now having returned to Switzerland since 2001, I enjoy the extraordinary view from my window every day. Being a writer, film director and photographer the view is inspiring to my work. Since working in the advertising world for more than 30 years, I now work independently and travel often. In particular to Mexico, where my wife resides. This is why my apartment is available. We have plenty to read, but you will probably enjoy spending time in the beautiful surroundings of Montreux, the lake and mountains. Chillon Castle, Switzerland's most visited site, is a lovely stroll away by the lakeside.
