The Pearl of the Vaudois Riviera enjoys a privileged location on the banks of Lake Léman. Its proximity to cities such as Geneva, Milan, Munich and Paris makes it culturally receptive and an ideal place to learn French.
The heart of the town beats to the rhythm of major events such as the Montreux Jazz Festival in summer and the Christmas market in winter.
The Vaude Riviera is also well known for its vineyards, its blend of lakeside and Alpine living and the sporting and cultural opportunities it affords.
