BEAUTIFUL, BRIGHT, WELL FURNISHED APARTMENT OVERLOOKING LAKE GENEVA

Le Bouveret Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment (85 m2) located on the 4th floor of a block of 8 apartments

This apartment is situated in a central, yet quiet location with wonderful views from all rooms over the marina and Lake Geneva. Constructed to a very high standard, maintained in pristine condition and painted in 2010, the apartment offers practical and comfortable accommodation for four people. A lift provides access from the parking space inside the building and there is a separate access at street level, one floor above the apartment, providing short walking distances to a bank, pharmacy, cafe, post office, supermarket, shops, bars and restaurants. The private roof terrace above the 5th floor can be used by guests and provides a magnificent panoramic view over the lake and surrounding mountains.

The train station (and local tourist office) and the passenger ferry terminal are close by and offer a wide variety of excursion possibilities. A car is not essential.

The apartment benefits from its proximity to the station, which is within a short walking distance of the entrance to the apartment on the ground floor and the lift.

This means that guests can arrive by train.

It is possible to enjoy excursions by train and ferry boat without the need to have a car.

There is a separate entrance on the 5th floor and a Post Office, Pharmacy, Supermarket and Bank are all within one or two minutes walking distance.

This apartment ID 56940 has been awarded a 3 Stars Classification Diploma for Holiday Apartments 2013 to 2017 by the Swiss Tourism Federation.

Why not combine your lakeside holiday with a break in the Swiss mountains?

This owner has a cosy apartment in Les Crosets, which overlooks the Dents du Midi and is perfect for hiking and cycling in summer and autumn.

Many of the ski lifts are operational in summer and the owner has subscribed Le Multipass which allows guests to benefit from preferential prices for ski lifts and many activities in Portes du Soleil.

Please ask the owner about making a booking at that property too or view Holiday-Rentals Property Number 471697.

RELAXING HOLIDAY IN A PICTURESQUE LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
> We have travelled Europe for 2 months and Le Lacustre was the best
> self-catering accommodation we stayed at. I give it 10 out of 10.

> The apartment is tastefully furnished and all the bedding/linen etc.
> was top class. Plenty of crockery and pots/pans for cooking. We felt
> like we were at home, not missing out on even small luxuries.

> The view from the apartment is magnificent - one can spend the entire
> holiday just sitting on the balcony, sipping wine and looking at the
> lake and the Alps.

> There are 2 bathrooms in the aparment which is handy when there are
> more than two people staying - no competition for toilet/shower.

> The building faces the lake. The building has also the second exit to
> the back street which has the bakery and shops. We bought fresh bread
> from the bakery every morning and we only had to travel 2 mins to the bakery.

> There is a railway line in front of the apartment but the trains are
> infrequent and do not run at night so there was no noise problem from
> the trains. The locals like music and there are concerts/bands on weekend.
> Karaoke... umm not everyone should sing.

> There is a broadband connection in the apartment but we had an iPad.
> There is free WiFi in Bouveret provided by (I think) the tourist
> office but the reception is quite patchy. You can get WiFi from the
> balcony most days but it keeps dropping of. So best to bring a laptop
> to make use of the broadband connection in the apartment.

> Plenty of things to do around the area but if you like night clubs etc
> you make have to go across the lake to Montreax - you either need the
> car or have to plan your trips carefully as ferries/trains do not run after 8pm.

> We enjoyed the stay immensely - it is a quiet little place (apart from
> karaoke nights :)) and the apartment is top notch.
