  • About this holiday

    The three star Villa Toscane is situated close to the waterfront in Montreux. Paired with the Royal Plaza Montreux & Spa, guests are able to use the range of spa facilities and restaurants here, whilst maintaining the intimate feel of a boutique property. Spend a few nights at Villa Toscane for a very personal experience in this stunning cultural city on the banks of Lake Geneva. We would recommend including Villa Toscane as part of a longer rail touring holiday around Switzerland.

    Our opinion

    Villa Toscane is a boutique property in Montreux with a distinctive Art Nouveau façade and charming individual touches in its modern room.

    Hotel description

    The three star Villa Toscane sits just a stone’s throw from the waterfront of Lake Geneva in Montreux. The Art Nouveau façade, defined by the pillars that frame its arched windows, the distinctive teal balconies, and the sharply peaked roofs above its dormer windows, seems especially fitting for this lakeside position. Flowers on the terraces and the tall surrounding evergreen trees help blend the hotel in with picturesque, leafy Montreux. Enter via the grand front steps, into an interior as deceptively modern as the hotel’s exterior. The guestrooms are decorated in a neutral, light colour scheme, which immediately focuses your attention on the dramatic views outside the window. Touches such as magenta or white orchids on the bedside tables and unique fireplaces in some rooms add a subtle charm. Higher room categories have high, panelled ceilings and are more spacious. For breakfast, lunch, and dinner, guests are welcome to use the restaurant and bars available at Villa Toscane’s sister property, the Royal Plaza Montreux & Spa. Dine on French fusion cuisine on the terrace at Café Bellagio, and enjoy a digestif or cocktail at Sinatra’s Bar or the Sunset Bar, while admiring the views across the lake. While at the Royal Plaza Montreux & Spa, why not also indulge in a massage or beauty treatment, or cool off in the pool. Villa Toscane offers an intimate accommodation option, with an abundance of boutique features, for stays in Montreux. We would recommend staying in Montreux on the first few nights of a rail touring holiday after arriving into Geneva airport, and from here moving on to Zermatt, Interlaken, Saanenland, or even Bern.

    Out and aboutnearby/local interest

    Though famous for the Montreux Jazz Festival, the city has much more to offer. A railway takes visitors across Alpine meadows to Rochers-de-Naye at over 2000m above sea level, from which you can sometimes see the Jet d’Eau fountain in Geneva across the lake. The Chateau de Chillon is perched on a rocky outcrop, unmissable for its fairytale beauty, and recognised to be Switzerland’s most popular historical landmark. For a taste of the Swiss chocolate tradition, take the Belle Epoque style Swiss Chocolate Train to the Maison Cailler to explore the history of Swiss chocolate production and craft some of your own. The Chocolate Train also takes you to medieval castle-topped Gruyeres, where three museums, characterful cobbled streets with townhouses that have shuttered windows, and pavement cafes await. Be sure to also visit the Lavaux Terraced Vineyards that stretch across 800 hectares of lakeside land, perhaps by Vineyard Train (S31), which takes you from Vevey to Puixdoux-Chexbres. For an exclusively relaxing day out, take one of the lake cruises across Lake Geneva, admiring the Alpine backdrop and stopping off in a number of small port villages. Those with children might wish to travel slightly further out to the waterparks and the Swiss Vapeur Park.

    Sports nearby

    Walking, hiking, cycling, mountain biking, and water sports on Lake Geneva.

    Family rooms and a two bedroom apartment are available.
