I recommend visitors spend at least one day in the famous medieval town of Gruyères: visit the castle, then a cheese factory and round off your day with a visit to a chocolate factory.

Take a tour of Lake Geneva: our hotel limousine will drive you along the lake in the direction of Thonon-Evian; stopping for lunch at the Restaurant du Port in Yvoire. You will then continue to Montreux where we suggest a visit to Château de Chillon. Your driver will then make a final stop in Lausanne where you will be able to choose between some retail therapy or a visit to the Olympic Museum.
