Beau-Rivage Palace
150 Years of History
Executive editor Nadja Maillard
Alexander Brailowsky, Yvonne Printemps, the Duke and Duchess of
Kent, Somerset Maugham, Gary Cooper, Richard Strauss, Ginger
Rogers, Serge Gainsbourg, Pierre Fresnay, Sacha Guitry, Mary
Pickford, Charlie Chaplin, Kirsten Flagstag, Madeleine Renaud,
Francis Poulenc, Mel Ferrer, Edward Kennedy and Georges
Simenon. An unlikely roll-call of names, with one thing in common:
they have all been guests at the Beau-Rivage Palace and have each
played their part in the history of this great theatre. Beyond the rich
and famous, other people feature prominently in the history of the
hotel, people who are less well known, yet equally important: those
involved in building and decorating the hotel, who have brought life
to it and who have ensured its success from 1861 onwards.
Published to coincide with the beau-rivage palace's double
anniversary, this book offers a mosaic of different insights, opinions
and perspectives on the hotel, from informative essays to personal
memoirs. There are chapters dedicated to the history of the hotel,
travel and tourism, the architecture of the buildings and design of the
gardens, all richly illustrated, as well as four short stories set in this
flagship hotel on the shores of Lake Geneva.
