Montreux-Vevey (Lake Geneva Region)

Spring Vineyards Montreux
Originally uploaded by thnkfst.
The area is often known as the pearl on the Swiss Riviera. Montreux to Vevey has so much to offer. With 15 km of lakeside quai's, the Swiss Riviera is blooming with eloquent flowers and plants, all nicely tended to throughout the year.

In winter, enjoy the snow-capped mountains entertaining a charming and incredible panoramic view.

In summer, the lake is full of sail boats (especially Thursday night races), flowing with steamships plying up and down. The hotels hold the charm of the Belle Epoque - such is the Riviera on Lake Geneva where many international stars live.

And right in the middle of this lakescape Nestle the lovely little towns of Vevey and Montreux - right on the waterfront. This is all easily accessible by bike in the summer or local number one bus all year long.

Cultivating the vine is taken very seriously in both places and they form enclaves almost entirely "isolated" by hanging vineyards on the steep hills
that drop down to the water's edge.

The mild climate in that region also helps to make Montreux and Vevey particularly well-suited resorts for relaxing holidays and are very popular for weekend trips.

If you are looking for a nice stroll and beautiful views, this is definitely a must stop destination....
