Dotti purchased this Condo in 1983
Why Dotti chose Montreux City Centre
Europe is my favorite place to visit and Montreux is so centrally-located and easy to get to by public transportation or by car. It's so easy to fly into Geneva Airport which is relatively small and so civilized to have the train station attached to the airport and only 1 hour to Montreux. From Montreux, I can take a direct train to Lake Maggiore Italy in only 2 hours, Milan 2 1/2 hours, Venice 6 hours. Or, nearby Lausanne to Paris with TGV in 4 hours direct. Also, EasyJet with inexpensive flights all over Europe flies from Geneva. The apartment itself is in such a beautiful location with incomparable views that, as a photographer, I spend hours on the balcony photographing the changing light on the lake, the Belle Epoque lake steamers going by, and the spectacular sunsets and I never get tired of this. It's a wonderful place to just relax and enjoy.
What makes this Condo unique
I love the convenience of the location. I frequently walk along the lakeside promenade to go to the farmer's market or grocery shopping and then come back by bus. The public transportation is so good that, although I have a car, I often just take the bus or train to Vevey, Lausanne or Geneva, and sometimes take the lake steamers even short distances because I enjoy them so much. I love the little bakeries and tea rooms and restaurants and especially the chocolates at the elegant Confiserie Zurcher. As an artist myself, I find the museums and galleries excellent and inspiring. The special bonus for staying in my apartment is the Montreux Riviera Card that will give you free bus travel and reduced rates for tourist trains, boats, funiculars and museums in the area for all guests for the length of your stay or 2 weeks, whichever is less.

Perfect location, very clean, terrific owner
We couldn’t have been more satisfied with this rental. Everything was just as pictured and advertised. We used public transportation, and everything is so close (Chillon, boat dock, restaurant, etc.) that it turned out to be a great choice. We always like to have our own car when we stay somewhere, but it really wasn’t needed. Super relaxing weekend, and a great location for all we wanted to see and do. Communication with Dotti was so easy, and we did not want to leave. Kitchen is small, but worked perfect for us. All utensils were there everything was super-clean.
Perfect Spot in Montreux
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay in Dotti’s lovely studio. The apartment was very clean and the bed was comfortable (our most important requirement) and the double doors kept away most of the street traffic. The bathroom worked fine for us, with plenty of shelves and mirrors in and near it. The kitchen had all we needed for our simple breakfasts and light dinners when we ate in. The best part of the studio for us was the fabulous balcony from which we enjoyed the view of the lake and the Alps. A great choice for the Montreux area!
My husband and I had such a fabulous week at this apartment in Montreux. The view (unbelievable) and location (awesome) cannot be beat. The owner has been super receptive and helpful. The apartment is tastefully decorated. Thank you so much for making our stay in Switzerland so wonderful! Highly recommended!
You were perfect guests and welcome back anytime!
Great apartment in a great location
Fantastic top floor apartment with lift and a balcony with terrific views. Fully decked out with everything you would need and a washer and dryer in the building. The location is ideal, an easy walk from the train station even with plenty of luggage and bus stop a hundred metres up the road. So all the major sites in town or further afield easily accessible on foot or by public transport. Dotti was a delight to deal with. Gear communication and full of information and arranged Montreux Riveria cards for us to obtain free local transport and discounts on attractions. Montreux is great city and this is the ideal place to stay. Do yourself a favour and go.
Thank you! You were great guests! You're welcome back anytime!
Bright, airy, great location & view
Charming, bright, airy, well-equipped, great location, wonderful view of lake and mountains, quiet neighbours in building. Dotti, the owner, provides plentiful information & is easily accessible by email & phone. Short walk to Montreux train station, or a couple of stops by bus. Conveniently located on main lakeside road at Montreux (technically Clarens, but right on border of Montreux) between Villeneuve and Vevey, making local travel easy. The Montreux Riviera Card (arranged by Dotti & picked up at Montreux Tourist Information) is fantastic: free, unlimited travel on buses and trains between Villeneuve and Vevey, and on funiculars to Glion (great meals and view from Buffet de la Gare) & to Mt Pellerin, & 50% off lake steamers. Though some traffic noise when doors open to balcony, closing the double sets of doors at night cuts out most of the noise so it is not an issue. Water pressure excellent & hot water plentiful. Stayed 3 weeks & would be happy to return.
Nice apartment in fabulous location
Nice apartment in small typical Swiss architecture block with fabulous lake views.
Host supplies tons of info on the area and organises Riviera passes for free / reduced cost local travel.
Easy arrival and departure arrangements.
Slightly dated bathroom only small downside.
The bathroom is completely tiled ceiling to floor and is kept very clean and is very functional although the color is outdated. I did look into remodeling it but labor is so expensive in Switzerland that I would have to double my rental prices if I even made minor changes to it. The labor estimates were absolutely shocking even if I supplied all the materials at my own cost. How much time do we actually spend in the bathroom compared to enjoying the beautiful views of the lake and mountains? So I decided that it was better to keep my rates affordable.
2-minute walk to Jazz Festival. 150 yards/meters to Stravinski Auditorium, Miles Davis Hall, Park Vernex & Conference Center. Take tourist trips on Chocolate Train' to Broc and to see cheesemaking in Gruyeres; take turn-of-the-century lake steamers to Vevey, the Lavaux, Lausanne, Yvoire, Chateau de Chillon, Villeneuve, Le Bouveret, St. Gingolph, etc; ski at world-class Gstaad or Verbier or smaller ski areas just minutes away; go wine tasting in the Lavaux; children will enjoy Aquaparc at Le Bouveret, & adults and children will enjoy Olympic Museum in Lausanne, etc; visit world-class art museums such as the Fondation Gianadda in Martigny, L'Hermitage & Musee de l'Art Brut and more in Lausanne, ballooning festival in Chateau d'Oex, etc. Enjoy day trips to Geneva or Berne less than an hour away or Basel or even Stresa Italy on Lago Maggiore less than 2 hours away.
