Le National de Montreux used to be one of the most famous hotels in the Swiss Riviera on Lake Geneva. Its design was based on the traditions of the Renaissance palace architecture. At the time, its mansard roof was a rare solution and its spacious garden made it possible to enjoy magnificent views.
Starting in 1877, the hotel was actively promoted as a unique place with the best views of Lake Geneva and the Swiss and French Alps. Le National has the well-deserved reputation of one of the most luxurious and modern hotels of its time. Until 1910, the hotel successfully functioned and underwent constant renovations and expansion; but the two world wars and the economic crises that followed them brought the entire tourist and hotel industry to neglect.
In 1955, an attempt was made to revive the legendary hotel managed by Montreux Palace, but in 1983, the activities of Le National were completely discontinued due to lack of profit.
Up to 2006, the hotel stood abandoned until a local developer proposed a project to transform it into an elite residential complex by restoring the historic structure and constructing by it three modern buildings and a three-level underground parking garage. The local authorities approved the project and in 2007, construction started.
It should be noted that for the Montreux region it was a revolutionary residential project in terms of size and equipment. The apartments have high ceilings, wood-burning fireplaces, and individual air conditioning units — a thing still rarely found in Switzerland.
The residents can enjoy a spa center with a swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, hammam, relaxation area and fitness room, a party room for events, and a wine cellar.
Les Résidences du National de Montreux complex is conveniently located on the shores of Lake Geneva, on the Bon Port hillside directly above the road connecting Lausanne and the Valais Valley. This unique place offers a picturesque unobstructed view of Lake Geneva and the snow-covered Swiss Alps.
On the waterfront in the center of Montreux, within walking distance of the apartments you will find numerous restaurants, shops, a post office, a pharmacy, a bus stop and a train station.
One can leisurely stroll along the picturesque waterfront of Montreux for hours enjoying the beautiful views of Lake Geneva. The most important attractions of the city are located on the waterfront, and this is where the famous jazz festival takes place. Just a 7-minute walk from the residential complex brings you to the Freddie Mercury monument on Place du Marché, and the Queen’s Studio Museum is nearby.
Literally 10 minutes by car or 16 minutes by bus will bring you to the famous La Prairie clinic. This medical facility offers the best spa treatments in the world.
Not far from Montreux, less than an hour by train, there is the famous mountain peak Rochers-de-Naye. The very picturesque winding high-mountain railway road runs through alpine fields and slopes.
A 10-minute walk will bring you to the train station, whence trains run regularly to all major cities including Geneva, Zurich, Milan, Lyon, and others.
