Evian les Bains, France or Lausanne, Switzerland?

Jump to last reply

I'll be leaving Montreux, Switzerland on my way to Geneva and will have 2 nights to spend somewhere in between.

I know the distances are fairly close but like to spend the night instead of day tripping. I will have a car so the time 'packing, checking in/out, traveling, etc.' isn't an issue as it would probably take longer to wait for and ride a train back and forth. Not looking for any advice in this regard, please.

I can stay in Evian at the Hilton using points. I'd need to pay for a hotel in Lausanne which is not an issue. I had planned on Lausanne until I just realized how Evian could play into the itinerary.

Looking for relaxation, good food, and wonderful scenery... and some local interesting sites.

Will have already done the things around Montreux (Chillon, Gruyeres, cog train up mountain, etc.).

So, the ONLY question is... which of these 2 towns would you pick?

Thanks!
