In the country that brings us the world’s finest chocolates and timepieces, sits one of the world’s most unique and beautiful hotels. Hotel Palafitte is unique in that it is the only five-star hotel in Europe built on water. In fact, it stands on tall piles on the Lake of Neuchatel – offering breathtaking views of the lake. Every room is luxurious and equipped with state-of-the-art technology. An experience of perfection and peace, staying at Hotel Palafitte makes it difficult to want to go home. The on-lake rooms feature well-appointed decks, complete with ladders that enable you to swim at your convenience any time during your stay. I’ve had the good fortune to stay at this hotel a couple of times now and never tire of it. Rooms are fully stocked with coffee machines, internet access, even your own computer. The huge bathroom with jacuzzi and rain-forest shower has two doorways and is separated from the living space by frosted glass walls. This hotel is spectacular. What’s more, the restaurant is top-notch – with weekly menus. Don’t’ miss the chance to stay here the next time you are in this area! You WON’T be disappointed.
