You are nestled amongst the mountains and will constantly take in the breathtaking beauty of the Alps.

A classy, cozy alpine retreat at a great value.

This spacious 2-bedroom apartment retreat is located in the heart of the Swiss Alps. It offers a magnificent unobstructed view of the Alps from its very large lanai/patio, with outside dining and sunbathing, The living room has a lovely fireplace, a thick hand-woven Moroccan carpet and a splendid voluptuous sofa which folds out into a king-size bed. Its newly refurbished American kitchen is decorated with a Moroccan tile wrought-iron table and chairs.

There are two bedrooms which can sleep one couple and 2 singles. The full-bathroom has both a bath and shower.

Leysin is known for its sunshine, pure air, wonderful skiing and bobsleigh school but is also very close to numerous other renowned ski resorts such as Gstaadt, Saanen, Château d'Oex, or the Glacier 3000 in Les Diablerets to name a few.

There is much to do in or around Leysin: Year- round hiking and skiing. Bobsled lessons from a former Olympic bobsled champion, Aqua-branch theme park, Acrobatic snowboarding, Rock-climbing, Paragliding and Delta-planing.

In winter, guests love to eat Swiss fondue or raclette in the 'Igloo' restaurant built from snow at the top of the slopes just outside of the big Panoramic Restaurant which turns 365° every hour. In addition, there are several excellent mountain refuge restaurants serving home-made dishes from locally produced foods. Numerous pubs, bars and night spots cater to Leysin's young international student population. Relaxing spas and pools are also available. Nearby Montreux offers gambling at the local Casino as well as the International Jazz Festival and other major events. Lavey-les-bains offers natural hot-water spring baths.

About The Owner

I am a former American-born French and British trained lawyer having suffered burn-out and having decided to make a major life change. I left the bar and now share my time between part-time teaching at an international hotel management school, this lovely cosy flat in the Swiss Alps and Zen House, my Riad Private Guesthouse in Marrakech, Morocco (VRBO Ref. 152266).

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2009

Why The Owner chose Leysin

I fell in love with the breath-taking beauty of the location of this Swiss alpine village (with its awesome view of the 'Dents du Midi' and the Glacier 3000 at 'Les Diablerets'), the innate kindness of its very international inhabitants, its dynamic young international student population (Leysin is home to several world-renowned universities and boarding schools catering to more than 100 different nationalities). If the sun is shining in the Swiss Alps it will shine in Leysin in this very open valley, known for its pure air and wonderful climate. I love the good winter skiing and summer mountain trekks it offers. I discovered a wonderful feeling of beauty and wellness when returning from a few days in Leysin which made me want to hang my hat there and nowhere else.

Indeed, the calm quiet atmosphere which reigns in Leysin allows me to charge my batteries before returning to my stressful work in Lausanne. There are wonderful mountain refuges serving homemade biologically grown products only found on-site. Leysin is one of the few remaining reasonable priced places in the Swiss Alps offering access to numerous neighboring famous ski resorts (Gstaadt, Saanen, Château d'Oex, Les Diablerets) as well as to water activites on the Leman Lake and such major cultural events as the International Jazz Festival in Montreux or the wonderful art exhibits at the Fondation Pierre Gianadda in Martigny. Chamonix, France is only 90 minutes away on the other side of the valley.

What makes this apartment unique

I adore the Swiss alpine atmosphere and culture of Leysin with its nearby glaciers and lakes, all a stones' throw away from such international cities such as Geneva and Lausanne.

What a view!

  • 5 of 5
We rented the apartment for two weeks during the summer and had the most wonderful time. The panoramic view from the apartment seemed to change every day and there are so many picturesque places to walk to and visit in the local area. We loved the castle at lake Geneva and the wonderful spa baths at Montigny.
The apartment itself is one of the best equipped I've ever been to, I didn't at any stage feel there was anything it needed. It was comfortable and bright. Thank you Carla, our first experience of Switzerland was a great one.

Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property in the summer. The property was just as advertised. It was tastefully decorated, well equipped and the views from the spacious porch were spectacular. It was great to wake up every morning and look out and see the views. The owner was very responsive and easy to work with. We had a very comfortable stay.

I had a nice 5 days stay at this lovely apartment. The view was spectacular. My arrival and reciving the apartment was smooth as Carla provide me with the driving direction to the place and the house keeper was ready to show me the way. The apartment was in perfect condition. Bedrooms and bed covers were comfortable. The kitchen is fully equiped. Iron is provided as well an access to the lundry room so doing laundry was not a problem. Leysin is located in high area so the weather was cold even in june and it is a perfect location to explore the near areas like Gsstad, lenk, villars and jaun.

Very sunny and bright flat, perfectly equipped, situated in central Leysin, Feydey, in the neighborhood of LAS (Leysin American School) and Kuman Leysin Academy, with an exquisite view over the “Dents du Midi”-Peaks and the Rhone Valley.
We felt very good there and used it as our base for hiking in the morning and discovering new worlds in the afternoon such as Vevey, Saline de Bex (http://www.selbex.com/en.html), Évian-les-Bains or the brand new EPFL Rolex Learning Center in Lausanne (http://rolexlearningcenter.epfl.ch/).

Recomanded for: Relaxation, Mountain Biking, Hiking, Rock Climbing, Skiing, Kids, Moms & Dads, Fresh Air.
