Photography Friday: M is for ‘Montreux’

Tucked away hides a quaint little castle. Sitting on a wondrous lake in possibly the cleanest area in Europe.

Château de Chillon is the drawing card for Montreux, but the stunning scenery that surrounds it is what made me not want to leave.

Situated in a little corner right on Lake Geneva in Switzerland, Montreux showed me how stunning Switzerland can be. Beautiful flower gardens along the path that winds around the lake in Montreux adds glamour. The sun shining down off the turquoise water makes it majestic. The Alps and mountains surrounding the lake remind you this is where, city and country life meet. Then the beautifully maintained Château de Chillon juts out, just to remind you there is even more to see in Montreux.

Rather than say any more, I’ll let my photographs of my visit to Montreux, show you how stunning it is.
