One of the newest luxury residential developments in Switzerland's famed Montreux region is Du Parc Kempinski Private Residences.

Composed of terraced vineyards and charming Swiss villages, the region of Montreux is renowned for its viticulture and unrivalled natural beauty. In addition to the Du Parc Kempinski Private Residences' unique setting amidst the banks of Lake Geneva and the stunning Lavaux Vineyards, owners will be able to embrace the region's finest wines within their private wine cellars.

Described as an "Eighth Wonder of the World" by acclaimed 18th Century writer and philosopher, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, the vineyards and lakes of this region have been frequented by wine enthusiasts for a number of years. As Switzerland's largest wine growing region, spanning over 898 hectares, visitors can jump aboard a regional train that runs along a picturesque route overlooking the UNESCO World Heritage Lavaux vineyards and Lake Geneva.

Commonly known as the "Wine Train", visitors begin at Vevey and end their journey in Puidoux, stopping en route for a glass of Chasselas Grand Cru, considered the finest white wine of Dézaley, the region's flagship appellation. The extensive vineyards can also be enjoyed on foot, with routes from Lausanne Ouchy and the Château de Chillon that overlook the lake leading through various vineyards and carefully preserved villages.

Next month this valley region will be busy as the much celebrated Lutry Wine Festival takes place. As the last surviving Wine Festival within the Canton of Vaud, the Lutry is in its 63rd vintage year, and welcomes some 20,000 people annually. During these three days a traditional parade takes place in the old town with local vintners opening their wine vaults and cellars to visitors.

Du Parc Kempinski Private Residences, one of Swiss Development Group's landmark properties, is located just 20 minutes from the center of Montreux, and will set the benchmark for luxury lakeside living. The 24 cutting-edge, spacious apartments are fully serviced by the neighboring 5-star Mirador Kempinski Hotel and owners will benefit from the luxury lifestyle facilities provided by the elite concierge service Rockefeller Living.

Additionally, Kempinski residents will have exclusive access to extensive spa and wellness facilities, wine cellars, as well as gourmet restaurants.

The 2-bedroom residences are priced from approximately $6.44 million or 6.3 million Swiss Francs. The apartment homes are 200 square meters.
