The Flavours of Lake Geneva

From our beautiful hotel located between the Lavaux Vineyards and Lake Geneva we will enjoy the flavours of Lake Geneva, the wine, cheese, chocolate and of course a relaxing lake cruise on an elegant Belle Époque paddle steamer.
Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel before dinner.

Day 2 Lake Geneva
Today we will take a scenic drive to Evian, graced with rugged mountains and tempered by the peaceful lake that connects France and Switzerland. We make our way to Yvoire on the shores of Lake Geneva with its miraculously preserved medieval buildings. Afterwards we will set off to visit the town of Geneva, with its dramatic backdrop of mountain peaks and many water features, including fountains and the famous Jet d'Eau.

Day 3 Lavaux, Montreux & Vevey
Today we will visit the beautiful vineyards at Lavaux for some wine-tasting. We will be able to try the famous 'Chasselas' wines and admire the impressive terraces that sweep down to the lake-shore where the grapes are grown. The area is one of outstanding natural beauty as testified by its UNESCO listing. In the afternoon we will enjoy a cruise from Vevey to Montreux on an elegant Belle Époque paddle steamer before promenading by the glacial waters.

Day 4 Lausanne Driver's Day Off
Today is at leisure. You can use your Lavaux Transport Card to embark on the short train journey to Lausanne. Visit some of the museums, stroll in the parks and gardens or enjoy an excursion on Lake Geneva.

Day 5 Fribourg, Gruyères & Broc
This morning we head to Fribourg where you can enjoy free time to experience the combination of French and German cultures. Take a ride on the funicular, built in 1899 and powered entirely by water! We then head to Gruyères for some free time to explore the village. Why not discover how Gruyère cheese is made with a demonstration at La Maison du Gruyère cheese dairy? Afterwards there will be some free time in the village before we travel to Broc, home of the Cailler-Nestlé chocolate factory. We will find out all about the chocolates made here, with tastings of course! After enjoying the chocolates, we return to our hotel in time for dinner.
