Le Bouveret is a beautiful lakeside resort on the shores of Lake Geneva, minutes away from the French border, with breathtaking views of the Swiss Riviera and alpine foothills. Known for its beautiful beach and many outdoor attractions, Le Bouveret is a popular summer resort, conveniently located near the vibrant towns of Montreux and Lausanne. The campus is situated just minutes away from the town center and the lake. Rooms are located in several adjacent buildings: the main building, the former Hotel Aiglon, which dates back to the early 1900s and overlooks the lake, and the adjacent Bellevue buildings, set among the trees.
With its lovely old town and cobble-stoned streets, the town of Brig is nestled in the sunny Rhone Valley at the foot of the Alps and only a short train ride away from the famous Matterhorn. Brig is a perfect starting point for excursions to the mountain resorts Zermatt or Saas-Fee and is home to one of Switzerland’s largest open-air thermal baths.
