Peter, dutch-swiss nationality and living in Italy, is the manager of this lovely property, owned by his mother Marianne. As of 2014 my brother Tjerk, living in the USA, will take over this apartment. For now we intend to continue renting out our apartment in Les Sapins.

Peter J. Bury purchased this apartment in 1997

Leysin is known for it's excellent sun bathed and pure air location. Leysin is easy accessible to road and public transport and strategically located in the south-east of Switzerland. The well endowed apartment in the lovely Les Sapins, has amazing views from a superb and well protected very large terrace. A dream.

Quality and luxury amenities. Amazing views. Strategic location at 300 meters from train station. Well kept and managed. Read our reviews!

The best Skiing holiday so far!!!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 1, 2013

We have been skiing every year for 7 years now and like the freedom that self catering offers. We came to Leysin last year and fell in love with the place. This year we returned by car from the UK after booking this apartment on the internet. It is by far the best skiing holiday we have had to date. The apartment itself is a very good size and has the most amazing views from the huge balcony.In fact every window has an incredible view, even the bathroom!
The apartment is located in a lovely quiet part of the village but is still within easy reach of everything Leysin has to offer. Parking outside was always available and the building itself oozes with traditional Swiss charm.
The kitchen area was very well organised and there was more than enough room in the fridge and freezer for the whole weeks shopping. The lounge was very comfortable and plenty big enough for the four of us to unwind after a hard day on the slopes.Plenty of UK TV channels to choose from aswell but you might just want to sit and look out at the mountains with the binoculars that are supplied!
Isabelle greeted us with a big smile and was always available just next door if we had any issues (which we did not!).
I honestly cannot fault this beautiful apartment and will be hoping to book it again for next year. Thank you Peter for all your help.

Mountain escape

Leysin has all that is needed for a perfect vacation: Mountains all around, it faces south so there is plenty of sunshine The village is nice and full of activities, and it is cozy and small. There are some international schools in village and I guess this is why it feels more active than such an isolated village normally is.

Les Sapins is located quite on the top of the village, but still within nice walking distance from the railway station. Every morning the sun wakes you up and there is plenty of sunlight coming in to the apartment. We were taken god care of and there was nothing missing from the apartment. It was well equipped and some nice old peaces of furniture combined with functional new ones - I especially liked that there was a collection of classical music that I could listen with a glass of wine after rest of family was already sleeping.

In two weeks we discovered not only Leysin but also other nearby ski resorts. Having two small girls (5 & 7), our favourite was Les Mosses with easy lifts and plenty of skiing for the young ones. After a skiing day I would recommend half an hour drive to Lavey les bains for some thermal baths and sauna. Well this opinion could be bit biased as we come from Finland, but honestly Switzerland is just perfect except you need to put some effort before you can find nice sauna after a perfect skiing day.

I would very much recommend this apartment. It is nice mountain escape, easy to reach and there are plenty of nice attractions on the region. We will be back there one day.

Comfortable apartment with a great view

I spent an extended period over the summer at Peter’s apartment in Chalet les Sapins and would thoroughly recommend both the apartment and a holiday in Leysin. The apartment is very comfortably furnished and the well equipped kitchen has everything you could need. Particularly useful for me was the provision of phone, fax, printer and wifi. Another great feature, which is not apparent from the photographs, is the huge private outdoor terrace/balcony. This is south facing and gets the sun from first thing in the morning until mid afternoon. It has a fantastic view over the Rhone valley and the Vaudois Alps - and is a very enjoyable spot for summer breakfasts!

The owner, Peter, was quick to respond to my email queries and was friendly and helpful in all our communications. The next door neighbour, who looks after the apartment, was similarly helpful and welcoming.

All in all my, time at Les Sapins was a great experience. I look forward to booking a return visit next summer…
Owner's Response: Dear Steve, I'm late but just to say that I highly appreciate your review and certainly will try to make more telling pictures of the indeed amazing covered balcony (not easy by the way). Good to see that you have come back in 2013 :-)

Peter

Comfortable, homey, personal, and very good deal

We spent a week's holiday in the apartment with our three children (6, 4, and 2 months). As we own no car, the neighbours, who take care of the apartment and are friends with the owner, fetched us from the railway station with their car. (you can also walk in 10-15 minutes though). They were also reachable during the whole stay and, like the owner whom we contacted in advance, extremely friendly and helpful.
The apartment is not just a clean, well-equipped and well-kept holiday apartment. It has often been used by the owners and their friends (as becomes clear from the guestbook) and has a very personal touch with books, music, games etc. to look at and try out. With 300 EUR a week, the price was unbeatable for the region. I would strongly recommend it.
There is a beginner's ski slope close by (behind the Hiking Sheep Hostel) where the kids (and mother) could try their first steps; it also has a heated tent where snacks are offered. There are also multiple tracks for snowshoeing as well as sledge slopes. Down in the village (where you can get by bus or in a 45 min walk), they offer a sports center with various winter sport activities and a "tobogganing park" where you can slide down an ice channel sitting on a tube. A real winter paradise!

Leysin, Switzerland in the canton of Vaud is a laid back, non-posh, non-pretentious mountain village in the Vaud Alps, above Montreux. It also happens to be the site of a ski resort with awesome off piste possibilities. Leysin is quickly earning a reputation as the college center of Switzerland, as it is the home of five international schools. Live music is no stranger with an active Blues Club Summet du Blues to provide live music year round, open mike nights at the Yeti Bar, and always the impromptu jam if you can find them. When here stroll down the Rue du Commerce and check out the bohemian galleries, yet another side of this sleepy town. All that and the Kuklos, a mountain top revolving restaurant. In a way it's sort of amazing that one village can have this much cool stuff and remain as laid-back as Leysin is. Leysin is in the Alpes Vaudoise roughly above and one mountain over from Montreux. The panorama includes all of the Alps Vaudois, including the Mont Blanc.

Other Activities: excellent snow-boarding facilities

Ski: Ski access to most runs from the Berneuse ski station, Place Large. If you are a total beginner of course it's best to take classes, but if you just want to brush up before you go for the gusto you should check out the beginner's slope just above the ski station which costs only 14 Chf to use. It's a bit hard to find at first, so don't be afraid to ask. If you're up to a bit more of a challenge, but still want to practice you can take the chair lifts up to the Tete d'Ai, and then -- taking a left -- ski cross-country style over to a very nice easy run below the Berneuse restaurant. The descent to the same run directly from the Berneuse cable-car is a more intermediate, but you should be able to handle it if you are comfortable turning and stopping. There are also fun descents down from the Tete d'Ai through the forest. Ski passes start at 30 Chf for a half day, and 42 for a full day. Standard ski rentals start at 28 CHF per day plus boots from 15 CHF per day. Prices go
