  • About this holiday

    A four star property in Ouchy, Lausanne, the Angleterre et Residence looks out across Lake Geneva and onto the mountainous French landscape beyond.

The Angleterre et Residence usually features as part of a rail holiday through Switzerland, from Italy, Austria, or France, details of which can be found below. Just a few days is ample time to become acquainted with peaceful Lausanne, before you move on to explore more of Europe’s lakes, mountains, and green countryside.

    Our opinion

    The perfect stop-off in Lausanne, the Angleterre et Residence is a charming hotel built in traditional Swiss style.

    Hotel description

    The four star Angleterre et Residence is a timeless property on the banks of Lake Geneva in Lausanne. It sits opposite the green portside, which is lined by grand and quaint buildings alike, some of which are strongly reminiscent of Swiss chateaux. Each of the four hotel buildings has its own distinct style, be it picturesque and traditional, with grey shutters and dormer windows, or strikingly contemporary, with sheer glass walls and minimalist stone. The Florissant building is built in a cosy English-cottage style, and the Angleterre and Lutetia buildings, which face out across the water, have retained the style of their 18th century beginnings. The L’Accademia is reputedly the best Italian restaurant in Lausanne, crafting delicious, rich flavours from fresh ingredients, which are then served in a chic, modern setting. The rooms and suites are pleasantly modern, light, and airy, but some have period features, such as exposed beams and sloping ceilings. In every instance, the accommodation is effortlessly elegant. Expressions Holidays recommends staying at the Angleterre et Residence for a few nights as part of a multi-centre touring holiday, but those staying a little longer may wish to make the most of the tennis courts, two beautiful pools, and spa facilities at the partner hotel, the Beau-Rivage Palace, situated just down the street.

    Out and aboutnearby/local interest

    Lausanne is Switzerland’s fourth largest city, but retains its feeling of seclusion and natural beauty due to its sublime surroundings. The Terraced Vineyards of Lavaux, now declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, skirt the water’s edge on the lake’s northern shore, and date back to the 11th century. You may wish to take a boat trip across to the Chateau de Chillon, Evian-les-Bains in France, or the mediaeval village of Yvoire. Exhibitions are always on display at the Fondation Gianadda in Martigny, or, back in Lausanne, the Palais de Rumine holds 5 different museums. For a more practical taste of the area’s history, visit the 12th century Gothic cathedral, the Morges Castle, Beaulieu Castle, the Romainmotier Priory, or the Chateau Saint-Maire. One of Lausanne’s most famous attractions, however, might be the Olympic Museum.

    Sports nearby

    The lake and hills make for excellent water sports, golf, tennis, and cycling, all of which are available through local businesses; during the winter, the ski slopes are less than an hour away.


    An extra bed can be added to Junior Suites. An extra bed for a child up to 12 years old is complimentary.
