Overall Guide : Have stayed at the El Dorado, Belmont, and the Mirabeau. All 3 were excellent with very comfortable accommodations and wonderful food!! Lots of day trips, concerts, grocery stores, shopping, and hiking readily available. Would love to spend several weeks or... more more in this area!! A bit expensive but the local grocery stores have anything you might want or need!! Couldn't ask for a more beautiful, picturesque, or relaxing place!
Not to be missed Day trip to Zermatt, then take cog train up to see Matterhorn , Cable Car on NW end of Crans , Hiking or day trip to Montreau Jazz Fest
