Sorry for posting this twice - meant to post it the first time in the Montreux forum but it went in the general Swiss forum by mistake -
I am planning this years holiday hopefully around Montreux/Vevey area but not sure where to stay. Have been looking at the tourist office websites which are good for trips in the region, museums etc but not the things I'm looking for to narrow it down. I'd be grateful if anyone can help. We are a family of 3, Mum, Dad and 4 year old boy. Things which would be very helpful in deciding where to go are:
Any small parks in the town with slides etc for children?
Which would be best for a morning walk/breakfast for Mum and son while Dad has a lie in - cafes somewhere on the lakeside with boats (hopefully coming and going), a couple of interesting things to look at on the way.
Proximity of a swimming pool, probably for 3 or 4 visits - I see there is one in Clarins but not sure how easy this is from Montreux or whether Clarins itself is a possibility.
Somewhere close by (if any such places exist) for a safe paddle/swim in the lake if it is warm enough.
Doesn't have to be a big town but would like a few cafes/shops. Don't mind if very quiet at night as we won't be going out in the evenings!
Are any places much better than others for boat/train transport links?
I am looking for an apartment, 2 bedroom in town hopefully with a lake view so would be grateful for any recommendations - although that is secondary as I can probably find one once I have narrowed the choice of towns/villages a little.
We stayed in Brunnen on Lake Lucerne last year which was great - had everything we were looking for (but would like to go somewhere different this year) so if anyone knows anywhere like that in the area that would be ideal.
Thanks in advance if anyone can give any information
