Tusculum - Description




An enchanting environment

CASTEL LES CHÊNES, set in the midst of a beautiful terraced garden, is situated in a residential quarter of Montreux: Territet. Built at the foot of the Mont Fleuri, above the bay of Territet, it enjoys a splendid 180 ° - view covering the Alps of Valais and Vaud, Lake Geneva, Chillon Castle, Montreux, Haute Savoie (in nearby France) and the Jura.

We are barely a 10-minute walk from the Lake, Territet station, the bus service to Montreux and the funicular railway to Glion.


A charming residence

This little castle in the most breathtaking setting, was built for a French countess in 1928 and became our home - our TUSCULUM - in 1971. It is with great pleasure that we open the doors so that you too may enjoy this magnificent place,
