“if you want peace of soul, come to Mon­treux”. Fred­die Mer­cury

Whether you’re glid­ing on a bi­cy­cle through rolling vine­yards or strolling past 400-year-old churches and wine cellars – which com­mand the same rev­er­ence – you’ll un­der­stand why a long line of writ­ers, ac­tors and mu­si­cians have come to Mon­treux to hide out.

Mon­treux is a scenic Swiss town lo­cated along­side the shores of Lake Geneva. The tran­quil town is known for its an­nual jazz fes­ti­val and a casino, as well as its sprawl­ing, ter­raced vine­yards. Mon­treux is also known for be­ing in­hab­ited by some of the world’s rich and fa­mous. You can en­joy the heart of this classy city as there are plenty of scenic lo­cales to ex­plore and pho­to­graph.

At Mon­truex, take a stroll along the lake. The 13-kilo­me­tre-long Quai Aux Fleurs prom­e­nade fea­tures flow­ers sourced from around the world that, against the grey­ish-blue back­drop of the French Alps, ap­pear al­most flu­o­res­cent. The view is sim­ply breath­tak­ing. Start from Vevey har­bour and head west to Mon­treux – you will see stat­ues of Chap­lin and Fred­die Mer­cury as well as a gi­ant sil­ver fork that stands sur­re­ally in the wa­ter in front of Vevey food mu­seum.
