LUXURY FOUR BEDROOM TRADITIONAL CHALET WITHIN A FIVE MINUTE WALK OF SKI LIFTS

Leysin Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Four en suite bedrooms and open plan living area

The chalet has three floors covering 240sq m and the four bedrooms can sleep 10. The upper floor has two bedrooms sharing a balcony. There is also a study area. The lower floor has a laundry room and the two other bedrooms one of which is a family room. The open plan living area has a log fire and comfortable seating. The dining area seats 12. The luxury kitchen is fully fitted out. French doors open onto the main balcony equipped with a table and chairs. On this, the ground floor, there is also a large entrance hall and WC. There is under floor central heating and the boiler provides plenty of hot water. All the rooms are south facing. The large flat garden has a patio with a table and seating. The chalet has a car port and additional off road parking for 2-3 cars.

Leysin has been noted for its sunny climate for over 100 years and is situated on a plateau 1250m above sea level with southerly views of the Dents du Midi across the Rhone valley. The village is readily accessible by road but also by train using the Aigle - Leysin narrow gauge railway. In winter, skiing is the main attraction with both downhill and cross country and there is a snow park with a half-pipe and jumps for adventurous skiers and snowboarders. A free bus service also links Leysin with the nearby resorts of Les Mosses and La Lecherette providing 100km of runs. Further afield the resort of Les Diablerets (25mins by car) links with Villars and high altitude skiing can be found on the nearby glacier (Glacier 3000). There is also a skating rink and toboggan park. In summer there are plenty of well marked hiking trails and many mountain bike downhill runs and trails. Mountaineering and via ferrata can also be experienced. In the village there are tennis courts both indoors and outdoors, an indoor swimming pool and a horse riding school.

At the top of the telecabine on the Berneuse (2048m) is the famous Kuklos rotating restaurant offering a 360degree panoramic view of the local mountains and Lake Geneva. Aigle castle houses a museum of wine and wine-making. There are golf courses at Aigle and Villars and a water park on the banks of Lake Geneva.

Leysin is a perfect place for energetic holidays or simply a relaxing time in the mountains.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Once again we had a wonderful time at your chalet. The place has such a welcome feel to it. This is our third stay and even though our second child has just gradulated from LAS and we won't have children to come and visit here, they will still be asking us to make a return visit. This mountain has been a big part of our lives for six years. We are sure to visit again.

HOME FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with a group of friends in March. It was my first time skiing and the slopes were fantastic. This chalet is a wonderful retreat after a day on the slopes. We even spent a day in the chalet playing many of the board games provided. It has a warm homely feel and very comfortable. Outstanding views and very well situated to local amenities. I hope to return.

CLEAN, COMFORTABLE, WELL APPOINTED

  • 5 of 5
We have rented several properties throughout Europe and this has been by far the best.
Pat and Sidney were wonderful. They answered all our questions and provided a really good binder with all the information we needed during our stay.
The place feels more like a home than a rental. The kitchen is well equipped and has everything you need to prepare any kind of meal.
There is a perfect room for kids downstairs and the house is equipped with movies and a DVD player. All the bathrooms were clean and there was enough hot water for all 7 of us. Having a washer/dryer was really convenient too.
We stayed during the summer and this is a perfect place for R&R! If we go back to Leysin we will definitely come here again.

FANTASTIC ACCOMMODATION

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful Christmas and New Year staying at Le Murier. I cannot rate Leysin and specifically Le Murier highly enough. The accommodation was excellent, very well appointed, spotlessly clean and had plenty of space for the 9 people in our party. The attention to detail from Pat the owner made this a real home from home. Le Murier has breathtaking views which are hard to capture in photos and is an easy 5 minute walk to the ski lifts. It is slightly longer to the shops but not a problem. The local people were very friendly and helpful including Neil and Sophie who also provided excellent ski instruction. In the run up to our holiday, Pat was also very helpful and full of local knowledge. The welcoming touches which we found on our arrival also added to the stay. Having had such a fantastic holiday we hope to return to Le Murier before too long.

FANTASTIC CHALET IN A GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing two weeks at Chalet Le Murier in August, enjoying the fantastic views in a beautiful, spacious chalet.
Leysin is a great location for many attractions and local walks. The chalet is conveniently situated for the village centre and cable car.
Pat and Sidney looked after us extremely well and nothing was too much trouble.
We particularly enjoyed barbecues in the garden or just sitting on the terrace taking in the wonderful views over the valley to the mountains beyond.
All the children thoroughly enjoyed playing badminton and swingball in the garden.
The chalet was immaculately clean, very comfortably furnished and exceptionally well equipped with everything you could possibly need.
We hired a car and enjoyed some of the many attractions this area of Switzerland has to offer, such as enjoying the spectacular scenery surrounding Lake Geneva, enjoying the delights of the Cailler chocolate factory or exploring the beautiful town of Gruyere.
We would certainly recommend the chalet and hope to return in the future.

FANTASTIC CHALET WITH STUNNING VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
This chalet has everything you could ever need, so clean, warm and comfortable exactly as described. We stayed a week and wanted to stay much much longer. Brilliant location with breathtaking views. Great walks and wine tours! Can only imagine the winter here with cable cars and ski slopes a mere 5 minutes away. Would stay again in a heartbeat and would recommend to everyone. Owners were very helpful with directions and train timetables.
