luxurious lake villa with 86 rooms
The Villa Montreux of 1932 is located on an enchanting site overlooking Lake Geneva. Ganter is in charge of renovating and expanding the private lake villa to the most uncompromising aesthetic and technical standards. Villa Montreux – the name alone refers to 1,950 m2 with 86 rooms, an orangery, a winter garden, indoor parking, and a small, private marina. Plans also include a luxurious spa area with an infinity pool, sauna and hamam bath. It will not come as a surprise that this venerable old Villa enjoys protection as an historic landmark. However, that means it must be renovated and updated with the greatest respect for the existing structure. A long approval process must also take place ahead of several building stages, such as the raising of the roof in the central section of the villa.Merely modernising the swimming pool calls for collaboration between various contractors and specialist firms, in order to lower the pool to ensure an unobstructed view
across the lake, heat the water in a practical manner and preserve the beautiful old grounds around the pool. Naturally, Ganter will bring out the artistic highlights of this imposing property. Cutting-edge technology will be used for the sophisticated lighting scheme and to protect this venerable old “grande dame”.
