Travelling in Switzerland is a well-ordered affair, whether by car, train, boat or on foot. Saint-Saphorin lies on the train route between Lausanne and Montreux. All other towns mentioned above can be accessed by train and/or bus from Lausanne or Montreux (from Geneva, change trains at Lausanne).

By car, take the coast road, known as the Route du Lac, from Lausanne.

If you want to arrive by boat, Compagnie Générale de Navigation has services in summer to/between lakeside towns in both Switzerland and France.

There is a wide range of accommodation in Lausanne and Montreux, plus small inns throughout the area. The brand-new Hotel Lavaux in Cully has 180-degree views of the lake.
