2. Fulfill the fantasy of staying in a castle - Château d'Ouchy (from USD 297)

Stay in a renovated castle. It even has a tower with a dungeon as a solid testimony of the hotel’s history. Actually, Château d'Ouchy really has it all. It’s located on the shores of Lake Geneva, a 12 minute walk to the beach, considered by Lausanne visitors one of the most beautiful areas of the city. Feel the history trails in the walls of this former Château dating back to the 12th century. The beginnings of the Château’s construction were revealed for the first time in the Lausanne bishops’ chronicles. Originally, it was planned to become a fort. The tower that is still standing was the first part of the Château to be built in 1177 by Bishop Landry de Durnes. One century later, Bishop Guillaume de Champvent extended the Château and created the town of Lausanne. The Château became a hotel residence during the 19th century.

These days, guests can enjoy the mix of an ancient castle with modern features like the Mediterranean restaurant, the cosy bar, the outdoor pool, the modern leisure area with sauna and hammam, and the terrace facing the lake. It’s a very popular choice for couples looking for a fairy tale experience. Also for families with kids who will have fun with the setting. Another plus is that guests of the Château d'Ouchy have free access to the spa of the Beau-Rivage Palace at a surcharge.
