This town hosts Honor Bands from the US from a variety of different states. The town sets up a large tent where there are performances in a party-like atmosphere. In Champrey, they rely on the tourists in the summer and on skiing in the winter. All of the shop, restaurant, bar, and hotel owners are so friendly and make you feel right at home. It is a quaint village you can walk around. There is no need for a car.

This is the most beautiful town! It is right on Lake Geneva. I would recommend visiting the Castle of Chillon, which is right on the lake. There is a wonderful paved walk, approximately 1.5 miles to Montreaux. The plants were incredible, their were begonias and palm trees, pine trees with yucca plants and cactus! Anything and everything grows there. The mansions along the walk were fabulous! The city of Montreaux hosts several festivals throughout the year, blues, and jazz. For more info, go to www.montreaux.ch.
