Christmas in Switzerland
Staying at the Hotel Eurotel Victoria, Villars
Saturday 21st - Saturday 28th December 2019
We make our way to Dover for a short sea crossing to Calais. We re-join our coach in Calais and proceed to Forbach for our overnight stay at the Mercure Forbach Centre.
We make our way from Forbach to Villars for our 5-night stay at the 4-star Eurotel Victoria. Villars is an outstanding location with fantastic views of Alpine peaks and pine forests and a premier skiing resort. We can enjoy a welcome drink on our arrival and then a four-course evening meal with a musician in the bar.
Today we travel to the mountain resort of Gstaad for a sleigh ride tour of Lavenan. Following the sleigh ride we have a short time in Gstaad before boarding the train for a spectacular train ride to the lakeside town of Montreaux. We have time to enjoy Montreaux before returning to Villars.
Tuesday - Christmas Eve
A day at leisure in Villars. During the afternoon we have cakes, hot wine or hot chocolate served in the bar. Our meal this evening will be a lavish Christmas buffet.
Wednesday - Christmas Day
This morning, weather permitting, we have a cable car ride to the snow-capped peaks where we can enjoy even more outstanding views and maybe take coffee in the mountain cafe. We return to the hotel in time for a turkey lunch (not traditional British Turkey lunch) and once again we have hot drinks and Christmas cake. This evening we enjoy a buffet dinner.
Thursday - Boxing Day
This morning we have an excursion to Evian les Bains; a lovely lakeside town with many different shopping opportunities. We may be able to see Les Flottins, a festival of sculptures based on the legend of the elves and fairies of Lake Geneva and made entirely of driftwood. We return to the hotel in plenty of time for dinner.
Leaving Villars this morning we travel back to Reims for our overnight stay at the Campanile Reims Cntr Cathedral Hotel.
This morning we leave Reims and travel to Calais for the return ferry crossing to Dover. From here we continue our homeward journey arriving during the evening.
