NileGuide Expert Says:
Sonja Holverson has admired this little mansion for years as she passes it frequently by on the Lake of Geneva paddle steamer stopping at the lovely port of Clarens. The restaurant is excellent and a favorite amongst the local population as well as residents in Montreux.

NileGuide Expert tip:
Local Expert Sonja Holverson: make yourself at home and become a part of this tiny beautiful welcoming hotel and its neighborhood and panaramic region. You will definitely feel like a local here. Clarens is walking distance from Montreux, yet there are very few tourists here. Land in Geneva and board a train right at the airport to Montreux (just 2 minutes away).You will be minutes from the bus and Swiss Rail to go anywhere in the Lake of Geneva region as well as in the entire country (as well as on the train route to Venice!)
is owned by Isabelle & Etienne Krebs who assure that you are well taken care of. The hotel offers a private lakeside garden where you will be pampered and awestruck at the view from the lakeside hotel just a 15 minute to Montreux along the gorgeous lake promenade. It is especially suitable for families and allows pets. There are parking facilities in a separate garage. Each uniquely designed room or suite has TV and a lake view. The restaurant serves gastronomic delights to guests as well as to locals who frequent their restaurant and garden terrace and the service is excellent throughout the hotel. Just a few steps to the bus stop that runs along the lake as well as the train station. The beauty of Clarens has even been written by visitor, Leon Tolstoï.
