Explore the beauty of Switzerland, where there is always something to do or a sight to see on the Swiss Riviera, such as rides on the popular lake cruises, or a visit to the Casino of Montreux. Drive along the lake into Lausanne, the "Cité", or old town, dominated by the magnificent 13th century Gothic Cathedral, or visit one of the many vineyards that surround Montreux. A classic option is to ski the Swiss Alps, an experience in itself! Some of the best slopes in Europe are only an hour away, and are easily accessible by train. Or simply shop for iconic Swiss timepieces, known as the best in the world for their exquisite design, reputation for reliability and precision. Just ten minutes from the Fairmont is the captivating Castle of Chillon, an architectural jewel located in the most beautiful setting imaginable!

Check out Favarger, Du Rhone Chocolatier, Teuscher and Auer Chocolatier - just for starters!

The village of Les Diablerets, or Little Devils, is a collection of chalets in the heart of the Alps Vaudoises.
