The Surval Setting

Montreux is a safe, vibrant, cultured town with cafes, restaurants, music and art at its heart and excellent national and international rail links.

Our Spectacular Location

Surval Montreux enjoys a stunning hillside location just above the French-speaking Swiss town of Montreux (population 25,000). Well known for its famous Jazz Festival, Montreux is a very safe, vibrant and friendly town with shops, cafes and restaurants and excellent transport links to some of Europe’s most exciting cities (Milan, Paris, Madrid are just 3 hours by train!).

Surval Montreux is a 20 minute walk from the centre of Montreux. The school provides a minibus for the girls so that they can visit the town for walking, cycling, roller-blading along the lakeside promenade or just for a coffee or ice cream with friends. Situated just along the shoreline from Geneva (90 minutes’ train ride from Geneva airport), Montreux allows girls to enjoy this beautiful town within a safe setting, giving parents peace of mind.
