I've just returned from a wonderful Swiss trip with 3 girl friends. St. Saphorin and Domaine du Burignon was an absolute delight! As I was researching locations to visit and places to stay Anne was quick to respond to my questions via email and very helpful. She did let us know that the walk uphill from the train to the BnB was a steep one, and I as a flatlander American didn't quite understand the severity of the word "uphill"...but alas, sweaty and winded, we made it. What a beautiful setting! There are two buildings that make up the Burignon. The front building has guest rooms and the breakfast room and also looks to be set up for wine tasting. That building is 150 years old but the inside is clean, crisp and modern...beautifully decorated. There is a terrace that overlooks the vast view of the lake. I imagine that in the summer it is a relaxing and breathtaking place to sit back and have a glass of wine. The back building is a wonderful 450 year old building with at least a couple of small apartments. Our two bedroom, 1 bath apartment with kitchen and dining room was upstairs. Both bedrooms were quite roomy and the bathroom with separate toilet was more than enough for four women. The beds are comfortable, the sleep was quiet and restful...the view over the lake in the morning was spectacular. There is a garden terrace for the guests to use and we did so both evenings that we were there and couldn't get enough of the view and ambiance.

We didn't have a car because we'd only used trains on the trip. Keep in mind that there are no markets very near. We brought wine, cheese, bread and fruit in from Vevey and Montreux so we were covered for our evening "happy hours" in the garden. There is a restaurant in the town below, but I must emphasize again...it is Below, so if you are walking just keep that in mind.

But, don't miss the town Below. St. Saphorin is a tiny, medieval town with quaint archways and wonderful scenery. Bring a large memory card for your camera! The textures and colors of the place are magnificent! Spring time was unbelievable. Even the "weeds" growing from cracks in the walls were an eyeful.

We had a long but easy walk to the Vinorama and enjoyed wine tasting and friendly conversation with the staff there. The film presentation is informative and entertaining...very well done.

At last, Anne, the hostess is doing a great job running the establishment. Take the time to ask her about herself. We found her to be helpful, friendly, interesting and a delight.

Room Tip: Ask Anne to set you up in the best room that fits your needs. She'll take care of you

First of all, big thanks to Anne for hosting us, even though we only met her for a day. We only stayed a brief two days during this offseason, we stayed at the yellow building behind the main building. We didn't get a direct view of the lake from this building however but that didn't stop us from wandering around to get a better view. There were no machineries operating during these times and it's truly peaceful and quiet.

For the building behind we got two rooms, a dining room and a well equipped kitchen with actual fire stove! Anne also gave us a bottle of Merlot upon arrival which was really good stuff! Maybe it's just me but the staircase leading up to our rooms smells of fragrant grapes of sorts! Speaking of stairs, the other reviewers are right, at least one flight of stairs are unavoidable. There's a nespresso machine in the common area. It's just a little tad inconvenient to come down to make it and go back up again, would have been great if it's available in the room - especially if you're not a fan of stairs :P We also opt for the breakfast which cost extra CHF15 each - delicious bread, croissants (which ran out on second day sadly), amazing grape juice!, eggs from their own chickens, ham, cheese, yogurt, and great coffee and tea! There's also free internet access, though the TV is a bit small. Maybe time to upgrade :)

Speaking of stairs, you can get down to St Saphorin station within 10-15 minutes, downhill, but beware, the climb up is rather steep! :P probably most Swiss are used to this climbing up and down the hills. Also if you're driving here, the roads are kinda narrow and you sorta have to be coming from one particular direction in order to turn into the accomodation comfortably, otherwise it's a rather sharp turn. Beware of traffic as you go out as we encountered many speeding bikers going up the hill. There's a small migros going uphill I think.

Oh , we also got these nifty Montreux Riviera card which offers free transportation around the area, and major discounts for certain transportation beyond the areas. The train rides are really a good way to see the whole area! The train at St Saphorin arrives every hour, and you can get to Vevey or Montreux from here.

All in all a very good accomodation option!

Thank you Kenpoh for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. February is also a very good, quiet, time for visiting us. Nice to read that you enjoyed our homemade breakfast. Fresh crispy croissants are offered every morning (except when the baker forgets to bring them - that's only bad luck, for it happens once every two years!). Indeed it's better to arrive to our place with day light. Easier to find your way, and to get on with the traffic. St-Saphorin is close to our place, so trains are easy to catch. And it costs nothing with the Montreux Riviera cards (that come with your nights).

Best regards, and see you again with pleasure.

My family (parents, myself, and my husband) stayed here in the summer (July-Aug) of 2013 for my parents' 40th anniversary. Between the 4 of us, we were here for several weeks. We could not recommend this establishment highly enough. I do recommend to ask Anne for whatever you need. She gives you the joyous freedom of a relaxed environment, and if you find anything lacking, she is quick to respond. Being here for quite awhile, she also allowed us to do laundry for a small fee, which was an unexpected perk. Anne was away for some of the time, but Alice covered for her and was absolutely amazing.

In terms of location, this region of Switzerland is a must. We spent time in French, Italian, and German Switzerland and this was, by far, the best region. It is breathtakingly gorgeous with mouthwatering cuisine and lots of activities for any interest. Both Anne and Alice gave great recommendations for activities and dining, all of which were spot on.

Between the 4 of us over several weeks of coming and going in the region, my family managed to stay in all the rooms here. The suite in the main house has the best view. However, we preferred the self-sufficient suites behind the main house. We had a slight preference for the upper suite compared to the lower one, but both were well appointed (and less stairs with easier coffee access for the lower one!). If we were to stay for just a few days, we would probably stay in the suite in the main house, but for a longer period, it was wonderful to have a kitchen. We would often go to the Vevey market and cook our meals from the fresh items we bought there and then eat out on lawn, overlooking the gorgeous views.

I will agree with prior reviews that there are lots of stairs and I cannot foresee a person with impaired mobility having a successful visit to this location. We did not feel the stairs to be a negative in our stay, but just be aware the no matter which room you stay in, you will be bringing luggage up at least one flight. Parking is free and convenient or it's just a 15 minutes walk (up hill) from the nearest train station in St Saphorin. The train in Switzerland is impeccable, quick, easy, and convenient.

Of course, their wine was excellent and we were able to tour the vineyard and cellar. There are many wine tasting options in the near vicinity to gain an appreciation for different wines in the region. However, with such delicious wine and your own private view, you don't have to venture out at all!

Thank you for your nice comments. We were glad to host you for such a long stay. August is indeed a very sweet period to enjoy Lake Geneva. Not many of our guests can compare all the rooms we offer. So thank you for the detailed review. Since you had lots of your breakfast on the balcony, I know that you had the perfect conditions. Burignon is a nice homestay not only for 2 nights, but also for longer holidays.

Staying in a vineyard, having breakfast in a dining area surrounded by barrels with aroma of immature wine - these are some of the wonderful experiences we had in Domaine de Burignon.

This lovely property is located in the UNESCO Heritage site. The surroundings are very peaceful and quiet, superb for visitors who plan a trip away from the haste of city and other touristy places. We stayed in the family apartment - 2 bedrooms with very comfortable beds and duvets, a dining room, a well-equipped kitchen and bathroom. Shower area is slightly small but clean. The apartment is beautifully designed and sweetly decorated. Upon arrival, we were given visitor passes which enabled us to travel by public transport in the area by our host, Anne, who also gave us very good pointers on wine making and also interesting places around the region. A thoughtful welcome gesture - a bottle of wine was presented to us too!

Driving to Domaine de Burignon was quite a taxing task, especially to drivers like us who usually drive on the left side of the road. Roads are winding and narrow, and reasonable skills and judgement are essential. The nearest train station is St-Saphorin, which looks quite near in the map, but one has to walk down a relatively steep path to access to it.

We really had a memorable stay in Domaine de Burignon and would strongly recommend it to those who want to enjoy a different kind of travel experience.

Thank you for reviewing us. We liked to read that you had a nice stay at Domaine du Burignon. December is also a very beautiful season, with snow on the Alps, but not so cold since we're not very high in altitude. We'd love to welcome you again.

We recently stayed at the Domaine du Burignon and can highly recommend it. The apartment was spacious and clean with a garden out front to sit and enjoy the view. The service was friendly and helpful, a delicious breakfast was brought to our room. The view of Lac Leman is amazing and the B&B is right along the walking path along the Lavaux. We would defiantly go there again.
