Why Ted & Patrizia Smith chose Montreux
This is a beautiful charming apartment which is perfect for a romantic getaway or for hanging out with a few good friends. The apartment is situated close enough to town for easy access to downtown Montreux, but just 'up the hill' enough to keep you out of the bustle of the town. Enjoy walks along the rustic cobblestone alley which leads to town, fill up your water flasks in the public fountains that line the alley on the walk down. Enjoy beautiful views across the Lake of Geneva.
What makes this apartment unique
The apartment has a fully operational kitchen that is designed to be used. You could eat in every night if you choose. Also there is a washer and dryer in the building for easy use, making packing lighter a bit easier. All the linens and towels are provided which is also an extra benefit.
