Peaceful and elegant, known as “The Pearl of the Swiss Riviera”, on the banks of Lake Geneva, Montreux is above all else a welcoming town, in summer and winter alike, for tourists from all four corners of the globe.
From Byron to Nabokov to Stravinsky, this long tradition of hospitality is alive and well today. In July, Montreux vibrates and dances to the rhythm of the famous Jazz Festival. Each season is extraordinary here. The Alps provide a stunning backdrop to the water, a paradise for sports enthusiasts all year round. Our school is situated in the heart of town, only a stone's throw from the lake, the shops, bars and restaurants. Richly coloured and bordered by palm trees, the quays reveal their secrets along the walk from the Auditorium to the Château de Chillon, where you will find small bays ideal for sunbathing, picnicking or partying, and beautiful gardens, lively terraces and international restaurants. A first-class cultural calendar also helps make Montreux the ideal environment for studying French in a magnificent region.
