Positioned above Lake Geneva among Lavaux’s UNESCO-protected vineyards sits Du Parc Kempinski Private Residences. Once a historic hotel, opened to the public in 1907, and now, thanks to a sensitive renovation project, set to be reborn as one of Switzerland’s most luxurious residential developments. Du Parc has been carefully restored, renovated and converted into 24 luxurious residences – including a penthouse triplex – that epitomize “l’art de vivre” . The Belle Époque structure and facades of the building have been conserved, whilst interior designers have taken the utmost care to preserve original fixtures and fittings, from spiral bannisters to exquisite cornicing. Old will be seamlessly married with new as cutting-edge fittings and technology is integrated into each apartment.
In previous years, Victor Hugo, Edouard Grenier, and Eugene Rambert were some of its early literary visitors. Then, at the beginning of the 20th century, a see-and-be-seen destination for wealthy Europeans. Now the Swiss Development Group who have overseen its transformation into luxury residential apartments are clear about their purpose,” We are setting new standards at the competitive luxury end of the market…our properties will be considered haute couture, exclusive and of superb quality, whilst paying close attention to detail and finish.”
