Lake Geneva - where to stay, how many days

Jump to last reply

I'm thinking of stopping for a few days in the Lake Geneva region next July (2013). It will be part of a month long trip, starting with two weeks in France, then about a week on the Italian Riviera. Then I think I can afford another week to ten days so was thinking of working my way back up towards Paris via Lake Geneva, Bern/Basel, then Strasbourg. I'm pretty open about all of this part.

I just want one base in this region, was thinking Lausanne. Things of interest are Château of Chillon, Rochers-de-Naye, some of the 'charming' villages on the French side of the lake, and probably a day trip to Zermatt. I'd really like to see the Matterhorn and it seems if I based somewhere for three or four days and did it as a day trip, rather than spending the night, then I could pick the best weather day.

So is Lausanne my best bet? Any other suggestions? How long - thinking 3, 4, or 5 days. Do you think all the places I mentioned are doable as day trips? Anything else?
