Intro

Charlie Chaplin, actor, screenwriter and film producer, and the famous tramp in the film "Modern Times", lived in the Manoir de Ban in Vevey. A statue by the lake commemorates the 25 years he spent here.

When Charlie Chaplin (London, 1889 - Vevey 1977) presented his film "Limelight" while on a European tour, he was denied reentry to the USA - because of McCarthyism.

He decided to settle in Vevey, along with his wife and children, four of whom were born in Switzerland. The family stayed in the Manoir du Ban in Corsier, a mansion in the neoclassical style of 1840, and which is set in a vast 14 hectare park with century-old trees. His children attended the public school. At the peak of his fame, Charlie Chaplin starred in "A King in New York" (1957) and "A Countess from Hong Kong" (1967), which he also directed.

In the heart of the Swiss Riviera Chaplin's World an astonishing museum dedicated to the life and times of Charlie Chaplin.

Also, the confiserie Poyet in Vevey dedicated a special chocolate to Charlie Chaplin. They also offer chocolate tasting for groups.
