Fodor's Expert Review La Barcarolle

Rte. de Promenthoux, Prangins, Vaud, 1197, Switzerland

Hidden in a parklike setting off the lake road, this mustard-color relais (inn) sits amid historic châteaux and country homes. Guest rooms with lawn and lake views have recently been updated and boast clean lines and neutral colors. Spacious baths have granite countertops, separate tubs and showers, and towel warmers. The bright breakfast room and fine-dining area spill onto a wide terrace. French cuisine dominates the menu, which ranges from fish specialties to local game.
