Apartment Montreux area

Jump to last reply

Travelling end of April 2018 with public transport only. Have thoroughly researched and come up with acceptable apts as follows:

1) La Tour de Peilz= "15 minutes walk uphill from train station"- Official listing/provides Montreux Travel Card..................Anyone that can comment on this town/area?
2) Corseaux - It seems that one must take the Vevey Funicular (direction: Mont Pelerin to reach the apt. ..... This listing does NOT provide the transit card, sooo... since we will be taking daily trips in the area, how expensive/much inconvenience is the funicular to return home every night?
3) Montreux/Chernex- 3 minutes to Chernex Train station, "quiet mountain-side location".....Anyone familiar with this suburb?
4 )Chernex -Apt, balcony with beautiful views- ditto to this town- restaurants, grocery store, bank/ATM, etc?
5) Villeneuve- 600 m to train station- Comments on this town?
6) Blonay - "at top of a hill" and "car would be useful"--this official listing offers the transit card-Comments on town?
7) Etoy/Buchillon - "Luxurious cottage with balcony in a calm village"- near Denners, so supermarket should be covered...comments on town/area?
Mostly we are looking for ease of transport, a town with a couple restaurant choices, a bank/ATM, grocery store BONUS cute or quaint for exploring in the evenings.
I have listed the APARTMENTS in descending order of preference...
Thank You!
