Message from our Founder
Clinic Les Alpes is situated in a spectacular setting of outstanding natural beauty in the mountains close to the town of Montreux in Switzerland. The Clinic has a 360 degrees view of alpine meadows, forests, snow-capped mountains and lake Geneva. It is a beautiful, serene and peaceful place.
Clinic Les Alpes, as you see it today, is the result of a ten-year journey of restoration and creation. The original building has been completely restored to its original grandeur. Below the main building a further three stories have been excavated from solid rock. This area has floor to ceiling windows creating a space flooded with natural light, and houses on one floor the medical facilities, therapy and counselling rooms, while on the floor below is a full spa with pool, saunas, hamams, gym, pilates and yoga rooms and treatment suites.
