Lake Geneva Views in the Lavaux Riviera

Hotel des Trois Couronnes Vevey  photoCharlie Chaplin called Vevey in Switzerland home. His statue in the form of the “Little Tramp” stands at the lake edge looking out to the rippling waters. On his first visits to Vevey, the silent film star would have stayed at the “three crowns”. Set in the heart of old town Vevey on the shores of the Lake Geneva along the Riviera between Montreux and Lausanne, the historic Hotel Des Trois Courrones offers delightful views of the lake and the snow-capped Alps peaks in a luxurious hotel which has been welcoming the discerning guest, from royalty and heads of state, to famous figures of literature and films, since it first opened in May of 1842.

Charlie Chaplain Vevey Lake Geneva statue photoThe steam cruise ships appearing on Lake Geneva in the 19th Century began to draw tourists to the water’s edge along the shore in the mid-19th Century drawing enterprising hoteliers to build luxurious waterfront hotels to accommodate the draw of wealthy visitors on the “Grand Tour”. Well-known local hotel owner Gabriel Monnet had a small long standing inn of the same name in the center of town on the Rue du Simplon and when he built his new showplace hotel on the water’s edge, transferred the name. At the time there were few hotels of its size and grandeur to equal it, though others would follow, with the grand lake shore palaces from Geneva to Montreux. The hotel no longer sits directly on the lake as the city fathers built a quay along the waterfront in 1863, but this glorious recently renovated luxury property of elegant neo-baroque style retrains its historic La Belle Époque character while exceeding in modern comfort and first class service.

Many of the hotel rooms feature private balconies with stunning views of Lake Geneva where the paddle steamers still cruise past (see Lake Geneva Cruises). Even some of the bathrooms have balconies. Amenities include 2-line telephones, fax machines, interactive satellite TVs with plasma screens and complimentary wireless internet access throughout the hotel. The restaurant of the Hotel Des Trois Couronnes with its grand promenade panoramic terrace offers a refined offering of Mediterranean and classic French cuisine in a romantic setting with the shimmering lake in the background. Enjoy the live piano music in the Veranda Bar. The hotel’s Puressens Spa offers a broad range of pampering wellness treatments and massages, featuring the finest products and techniques in a setting both beautiful and intimate.

Hotel de Trois Courrone Terrace restauant Lake View photoThe Hotel Des Trois Courrones is located opposite the history museum of Vevey with its fascinating collection of locks and odes to the city’s famous traditional wine festival. Vevey is surrounded by the hillside wine vineyards of the Lavaux, where the wine train departs daily for the short trip into ancient monastic vineyards which line the lake shore (see Lavaux Wine Terraces). Also worth a visit in Vevey are the Aliamentarium in the one-time mansion headquarters of Nestle Condensed Milk Company and their innovation of milk-chocolate (see Aliamentarium Food Museum). Vevey and the Hotel Des Trois Couronnes are 45 minutes from Geneva by train.
