General description

  • Main home
1920’s market gardeners house partially restored with the environment in mind. We have a 1500m2 biodiverse garden with mixed organic vegetable garden and fruit trees. We own the property which is composed of three apartments. We live in the ground floor apartment and have a cat named Kyu-ubi (QB). The property overlooks Lac Léman and is at the edge of the Lavaux vinyards. Vevey is a 25 minute walk away or there are busses and a small train stop virtually at the bottom of the garden. The view is huge.

Tourism and Leisure

We are in the UNESCO Lavaux wine making area. The Chaplin Museum is very close by. The Victorian era resort town of Montreux is just down the road and beyond it, the Chateau de Chillon is the biggest and finest chateau in Switzerland. The beautiful regions of Gruyère and Morat are an hour’s drive away. Steamer trips on the lake can take you from one end of it to the other. The Saturday and Tuesday vegetable markets in Vevey are a must.
