My Route du Bonheur

Between the lakes and the Jura mountains

Philippe Vuillemin
By Philippe Vuillemin, Maître de Maison of the Hotel de La Cigogne

Plan your personalized
itinerary with our concierge

+1 800 735 2478 * *Local charges apply
"I invite you to discover this outstandingly beautiful region, between the lakes and the Jura mountains, with its extraordinary variety of landscapes and unspoiled nature that will amaze and invigorate your senses. Come and breathe in the wonderful air and, depending on the time of year, enjoy the scent of flowers, the smell of the orchards and cider-presses, the changing colours of the forests and the countless acres of vineyards. Beginning in Calvin’s city, I suggest a trip along the Joux Valley, passing by Lausanne, before moving on to Montreux and Rochers de Naye. A wonderfully restful and enchanting trip."

Domaine de Châteauvieux

Genève-Satigny - Switzerland

Restaurant and hotel in a vineyard. From the age of seven, Philippe Chevrier knew that he would be a cook. His childhood dream was nourished by the dishes created by his mother, who gave him a passion for good food. Philippe’s dream has become a reality. This is an excellent reason to stop off in the heart of Satigny, Switzerland’s largest wine-producing municipality. In this immaculately renovated former vine grower’s farm, Philippe Chevrier and Damien Coche serve, amongst other treats, whole oven-baked John Dory, sauteed scallops in sepia ink, and Limousin rack of lamb baked in hay and aromatic herbs in a sealed casserole. ...

On place Longemalle, the gilded swan overlooking the door sets the tone of a hotel in which all rooms are different and have been entirely redesigned in a young and dynamic spirit.

Take time to stroll through this green oasis on the edge of town. There are approximately 12,000 different roses and nearly 200 different varieties. You can stroll between the ponds and fountains, with the beautiful lake view in front of you. The ideal place to wind down and relax.

Coffee at a pavement café

Coffee at a pavement café

At the heart of the old town, Bourg-de-Four Square is one of those “typically Geneva” places where you can sip away at a coffee outdoors. On nice days, depending on the time of day, you can sit in the shade of seventeenth and eighteenth century houses, where you’ll find students or people taking a break from work. A square that is very popular among Geneva’s inhabitants.

Lavaux vineyards

Lavaux vineyards

Little known outside our borders, the Lavaux vineyards are a UNESCO World Heritage site. 830 hectares divided into terraces that face Lake Geneva, and the Alps so close you feel you could reach out and touch them. Magnificent! What better than to enjoy a drink against this idyllic backdrop? Stop by at a wine cellar in one of its wine-producing villages.

Hôtel Victoria

Montreux-Glion - Switzerland

Hotel and restaurant in a village. For Toni and Barbara Mittermair, “guests don’t come to the hotel, they come to our home”. This home is beautifully located on the banks of Lake Geneva, with snowy mountain peaks behind. It is a pleasure to sip aperitifs on the terrace, whilst watching the beautiful sunset. The inspired owners have succeeded in preserving the intimate and welcoming atmosphere of a family hotel at the Victoria. In the hotel’s restaurant, the chef and his team create simple cuisine inspired by the south of France, such as the rack of Sisteron lamb with herbs accompanied by straw potatoes and ratatouille nicoise. ...

Les Rochers-de-Naye

Les Rochers-de-Naye

A small rack-rail train takes you from Montreux to over 2,000m in altitude, above the cliffs and forests. There you’ll find La Rambertia, an alpine botanical garden which includes 1,000 species of alpine plants. And if you look hard, you’ll spot the marmots popping their heads out of their burrows. All this, just 55 minutes from the lake…
