About Vevey

Vevey lies on the North shore of Lake Geneva. To the British, this town may be most familiar as the final home of Charlie Chaplin, but he is just one of many famous residents who have called Vevey home. Dostoevsky, Victor Hugo, James Mason, Shania Twain - all have lived here! Our pick of the best places to stay in Vevey offer lakeside luxury in this charming Swiss town.

Vevey is where milk chocolate was invented in 1875 and is still the headquarters of Nestle. Fittingly, you'll find here the museum Alimentarium (of Nutrition) and Nestle's own discovery centre (popular with both adults and kids alike) The Nest. Also worth a visit are the Musee de la Confrerie des Vignerons (The Brotherhood of Winegrowers Museum) and Musee Suisse de l’appareil photographie (the Swiss Camera Museum).

This is a popular wine growing area and Vevey hosts an international winegrowers festival four or five times a century (the last one was in 1997).

In summer there's a twice weekly folk market., and don't miss the funicular ride up to Mont Pelerin to experience the stunning views from the top of the telecoms tower sited there.
