Holidays to Lake Geneva The Swiss Riviera resorts have a welcoming Mediterranean atmosphere

Your choice of resorts in the Lake Geneva region

The grand style of the traditional resorts that grace the shoreline demonstrate why this region is known as the Swiss Riviera. With a mild climate and promenades littered with open air cafés serving wine from the local vineyards, this the most French of all the Swiss regions. There is a great transport network to help you explore the Mediterranean atmosphere and fine gastronomy of the lakeside towns or you can take a trip on the mountain railways to experience fantastic views over the lake and high Alps. You could even board a lake steamer and visit France for the day. Your choice of resorts includes elegant Montreux and the lively town of Lausanne, or you can find a quieter holiday in Vevey and nearby La Tour-de-Peilz. Please CLICK HERE to find out more.
