About the resort

Caux is a small village in the Canton of Vaud, Switzerland which is part of the Montreux municipality. It looks out over Lake Geneva from an altitude of 1000 meters. Overlooked by the Rochers de Naye summit, the Caux area 

During the 19th century, Glion was not situated high enough to satisfy the mountain lovers, so at the turn of the century were built in Caux, at 1,050m above sea level, the two biggest hotels of Montreux Heights. By their situation and comfort, they attracted a wealthy and cosmopolitan clientele. The Caux Palace is currently occupied by a hotel management school and a historic exhibition, and its fairy-tale-castle silhouette still proudly overlooks the Swiss Riviera.

The most famous host of Caux was Claude Nobs, founder of the world famous Montreux Jazz Festival. His "chalet" has hosted Miles Davis, Freddie Mercury and many other music stars, and every July it becomes a very sought-after and exclusive "backstage VIP residence".

Caux is located on the cogwheel railway line linking Montreux to Rochers-de-Naye, and the road climbs up to Hauts-de-Caux (Caux Heights), dotted with "chalets". On clear days, the village grants spectacular views on the lake and the mountains and as one can get there by car it is an ideal place for hikes.
