“a wonderful respite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Heidi's Guesthouse was everything we were hoping for and more. We were in awe of the scenery that surrounded us as we drove up the valley and when we came around a curve in the road and saw the guesthouse we were so excited. The guesthouse itself is very old but has been completely and beautifully remodeled. Laurent, the owner, was so welcoming and hospitable. Though we were excited to be in Switzerland we didn't really know what we wanted to do. Based on the time we had available, Laurent was able to make some great suggestions. We took his advice and couldn't be happier with what we were able to do in only 2 days. Laurent was also very patient and knowledgeable and did his best to answer the myriad questions I continually asked. Heidi's is also only 30-40 minutes from Montreux one way and 10 minutes or so to Pont-de-Nant Natural Reserve the other. Just a wonderful place all around!

I was seeking a BnB within reach of Montreux and surrounding attractions that was a bit more affordable. After reading the few previous reviews we decided to stay at Heidi's BnB in Frenieres for a fraction of the cost of a hotel or BnB on Lake Geneva. All of my comments echo previous ones. The host Laurent was extremely kind and hospitable. The restored farmhouse is charming, clean, quiet and very comfortable with great views of the French Alps with hiking options near by. We slept so well and awoke to the sun rising on Grand Muveran right out of our window. The hearty breakfast consists of local breads, cheeses and jams. Aigle castle is an excellent day trip, easily accessible from the house by train (1 stop from Bex). It was a beautiful place worth the visit (free admission with Swiss Pass) and lunch looking out over the vineyards to the French Alps.

For those who dont mind getting off the beaten path, this was a wonderful stay. You must note though that there are only a few buses to Frenieres each day from the Bex train station. At the Bex train station, the Frenieres bus stop next to the house is not listed on the timetable. You must take the Les Plans bus which goes right by the house and the Frenieres bus stop 50 yards away. The last bus departing for LesPlans is at 1830 each day. We were confused on this but Laurent kindly offered to pick us up!

Travel to/from Montreux area to the house was about 45 min - 1 hour total when combining bus and train so worth the trouble.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Heidi's and Laurent was a great host.

We are now at Heidi's Guesthouse in Freineres as I type this review. With a GPS it brought us up to the exact location which is up a winding mountain road. It's bright yellow facade is cheerful but the best was the warm smile of Laurent the owner as he welcomed us into his home. We are from Singapore we were a little lost in French speaking Switzerland, but the people are very warm and kind. Heidi's Guesthouse is beautifully furnished and having a wonderful host makes this BnB the Best.

Room Tip: The house has four rooms, even with shared bathrooms its no trouble at all. It's like Being in...

There are almost no words to describe how fantastic everything was about my stay at Heidi's. It is not only the breathtakingly scenic location and the charm of the house but the hospitality and helpfulness of its owner as well. The location of the place is ideal: in the immediate proximity of the mountains and its magical hiking paths through the woods yet only a short ride from the nearby town of Bex where one can take the train to various destinations, while Lake Geneva and its cities Montreux and Lausanne are also within good reach. Pretty farm houses, pastures, forests, mountain peaks, a gorge with a creek and waterfalls literally in the backyard...you've got evertyhing in just a stone's throw away. Wonderful place to spend a relaxing time. As for the house itself: stellar! Cosy, clean, comfortable and well equipped.

This is a beautifully restored 19th-century house in a valley in the Alps. Modern plumbing and electricity have been added, and it was very cozy and comfortable. It's in a valley with lots of small cattle farms. Outside in the back yard there is a roofed area with comfy couches and lounge chairs. The owner was very nice, and went way out of his way to help me.

Nice place to stay.
We were on our way from Montreux to Zermatt.
Although Haidi's Hous is a bit far from the main road we enjoyed the view and the quietness of a place. And also the prices are a bit lower then in places near Montreux.
The house is looking good outside and inside altogether.
The owner of the place is a nice fellow.
