The Surval Setting


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 and friendly town with excellent transport links to some of Europe’s most exciting cities (much valued by older girls in the planning of their weekend trips!)  

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 hot chocolate with friends. The vicinity to Montreux allows girls to enjoy some independence within the safety of a small town, giving parents peace of mind.


Our Exceptional Facilities

We enjoy the benefits of our striking, majestic setting, spacious living and learning environment.  Wherever you are on our small campus you are greeted by a breath taking, inspirational view.

Housed in a former hotel, Surval Montreux offers the comfort and luxury of Swiss hospitality with a warm, friendly family atmosphere.  Every room enjoys stunning alpine and lake views. 

We also make full use of the wonderful surrounding environment to enable our girls to make the most of the beautiful outdoors and take advantage of a rich sporting programme, both as part of timetabled sports and after school and weekend activities.
