This BRA event has been cancelled.
This event has been restricted to the residents of Blonay and St. Légier and their guests.
This Château, the finest in all of Switzerland, was built in the 1760’s and has been owned by the same family since its construction.
However, the decision was made to sell the estate in 2012.
In November 2019, Pepperdine University in Malibu, California bought it as its European University Campus.
Its first students will be coming in September 2023.
There has been much renovation to the château, the stables, and other structures with the sole objective to preserve the heritage and historic character of the estate.
There are 67 acres of gardens to wander around.
There is a train from Vevey to Hauteville every 30 minutes: the station is outside the château’s main gates.
