Like at no other hotel in Europe, the bungalows at Hôtel Palafitte are built on stilts above the scenic waters of Lake Neuchâtel, and enjoy panoramic views of the Alps and Swiss countryside.

The term "lakeside" seriously undersells this hotel's placement, quite literally over the lake.
Being on the waterfront is nice, but sleeping in a luxury bungalow perched on stilts above the water? That's romance. Normally found in the South Pacific, these overwater accommodations are on a mountain lake in Switzerland, at Hôtel Palafitte.

Along with the unique setting, these bungalows sport some seriously state-of-the-art technology. In all 40 suites, every convenience is just a push of a button away. A single "SIM-pad" lets you lie in bed and control how warm or cool you are, what you watch on the plasma screen, and what song you play. The minibar and espresso machine may not be remote-controlled, but you can stand up and grab a beverage on your way to your private terrace with the mountain and lake view.

Depending on when you drop by "Le Bar" at Hôtel Palafitte, it can be a casual spot for lunch, or a cozy gathering place with a roaring fire. But no matter when you're there, the food is always good, the drinks plentiful, and vice versa.
