Vevey: 7e Art B&B

7e Art is a sharp modern place with an early Hollywood motif (C. Chaplin lived in Vevey for many years). Breakfast is basic but fresh and includes an espresso machine. The owners include a Riviera guest card for your stay which gives you the run of the local trains and busses.

It is located in a quiet neighborhood a little outside Vevey in Corsier. It's a two minute walk to the bus stop. Bus lines 211 and 212 get you into town, the train station, to the funicular, etc. 120 SF per night is a good value here.

Eddie, did you visit the Chaplins' home and museum? I was hoping to visit this spring but we just didn't have enough time.

I did not see the Chaplin museum either. I did not have the time and was not particularly interested. Maybe next time.

I am interested so maybe I'll try to fit it in next year. Thanks.

Darcy, I enjoyed visiting the Chaplin's World museum in Corsier this past July. It was very well done and loads of fun. The funniest movie clips played throughout the complex and kept me laughing the whole visit. I recommend it, even though it's not covered by the museum pass or Swiss Travel Pass.
Here's their website:

You can take the train to Vevey and change to the 212 bus near the station. Take the bus to the "Chaplin" stop.
As you arrive at the museum, you can make a reservation for later at their elegant outdoor cafe for lunch. (There's also an inexpensive snack bar next to it.) Then visit the mansion and park-like estate grounds with a view across Lake Geneva (Lac Leman) to the snow-capped mountains beyond. Don't miss visiting the "Studio." There, you watch a presentation in a theater, and then the theater opens and you get to walk up onstage to look at a labyrinth of behind-the-scenes displays, full of more clips from his movies that make you burst out laughing.

Thanks, Linda! I will definitely put it on my list of travel dreams. I don't think I'll be able to get there this spring unless I extend my trip but I'll make a point to fit it in next time!
