Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic time. The awful weather put us under pressure to make it the best possible holiday for the kids. We left in the mornings and hit the acqua park, Cailler chocolate factory, Lausanne reptile centre, St Bernard dog centre in Martigny, Chateau Chillon, toy shops in Lausanne. We packed it in and were able to do all of that in the rain.

When it cleared we took a few trips on to Vevey and Montreux on the old boats, went to Les Mosses market, Berneuse and Martigny Labyrinth Park. We also hung around Leysin.

The sheer beauty and comfort of the Chalet was a refuge in the rain and a paradise in the sun.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and this was due in no small part to Chalet Le Renard.

Home, sweet home!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best weeks we've had in a chalet! We have spent a lovely week with friends here and we all felt that it was like coming home. There was enough space for all of us, it has a perfectly equipped kitchen and everything was superbely maintained. The chalet sits on a hill with a gorgeous view on the Swiss Alpes. I've slept so well here, because it's quiet and the air so clean. If you come by car there is place enough to park it. So I would definetely recommend this chalet, and I'll hopefully can come here again soon.

A wonderful base for Summer Hiking and exploring

  • 5 of 5

Having never been to the Alps at all, we were keen to find a base that had plenty to offer, and Chalet Reynard in Leysin was certainly that. The town itself had everything that we needed - supermarkets, restaurants, bars etc. The highlights of the trip through were the chalet itself and the wonderful countryside and scenery. We went walking / hiking almost every day, and with 4 kids ranging from 8 to 13 we were lucky in that there were trails with a wide range of difficulty, depending on need. For the most part though, when we weren't walking, we were at the chalet, which was wonderful. Well equipped, comfortable, with breathtaking views. All extremely clean and tidy, with plenty to amuse the children in particular with lots of board games. Our favourite aspect though was down in the basement, (used for ski kit during the winder season), where there was a great table football table and table tennis.

Even though the weather for parts of our stay was not ideal, the chalet was so well insulated as to need windows and doors open anyway, and the sun terrace was perfect for catching the afternoon sun. Uninterrupted views over the mountains opposite were compelling and changed every day, depending on the weather. And there was always the tinkle of the cow bells to remind us what country we were in.

It was only a 5 minute walk to get into the centre of town, and a couple of minutes more to get to the ski-lift up to Le Berneuse. We certainly came back somewhat fitter!

All in all we had a wonderful time, and we will certainly be hoping for a return visit to Chalet Renard.

Semaine parfaite, dans un chalet magnifique!!

  • 5 of 5

Le chalet est un mélange entre neuf/moderne et chaleureux/cozy. Il est parfaitement équipé avec tous qu’on aurait pu vouloir pendant la semaine

(livres, jouets, jeux, ustensiles de cuisine).

L'emplacement est idéal, avec une vue panoramique spectaculaire vers les Alpes, et avec la ville de

Leysin et ses restaurants et magasins à 5 minutes à pied. La région propose un grand choix d'activités …mais on peut aussi se détendre dans le joli

jardin avec une boisson fraiche

Nous étions 8: 4 enfants et 4 adultes, tous ravis de notre séjour. Je rêve déjà à la prochaine fois !

Perfect place for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is just the perfect place to spend a family holiday in. It is super comfortable and has anything you may possibly need. Very cozy and yet has no dominant design that one may not like. Gorgeous views of the glacier and mountains surrounding the village. Super quite. A nice little walk from the town's centre. On some of our days we just stayed in all day as it was so nice. The landlords were very helpful when we had a very minor problem and extremely quick to have it fixed. We really hope to go back soon…

Wonderful home from home

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place! When I saw the photos of the mountains in the advert, I didn't really believe that this was the view in front of the chalet without taking a single step or even getting out of bed!

Nick and Jill made everything easy - up to and including feeding the woodpeckers in the garden. We let the eagles find their own...

It was a real privilege to be able to live in N&J's lovely Swiss home for nine days, during which the weather was a fantastic 27'C and mainly clear blue skies (plus the usual electric storms and challenge of capturing lightning on camera for the youngsters...). The British TV channels were unusually welcome for us this week as it was the London Olympics!

Leysin was made for walking in the summer. Either up, up and more up, or ride the cable car and walk around the mountain tops, or up the cable car and walk down. The views are staggering across Lake Geneva (Lac Leman).

Lots of gentle walking straight from the chalet too, with Gentiana's alpine garden just a short distance away.

Sporting facilities in Leysin look fantastic but pricey. There is a good riding school nearby but we didn't round to asking for prices.

Mountain biking looks great here, and not nearly so busy as Les Gets just across the French border. Lots of respect between these bikers and walkers on any shared sections of path too. Plenty of road cyclists too, although the main road climb from Aigle is too busy for safe cycling.

An emphatic THANK YOU to Nick and Jill.

Chalet Le Renard - a fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The whole process from start to finish was very straight forward and easy. Booking the chalet could not have been easier and the owner was very prompt in replying to my query. Payment + deposit paid by online transfer and deposit refunded within a few days of our return again by online transfer.

The chalet was absolutely fantastic with stunning views. The facilities in the chalet were everything you would need, washing room with washing machine, tumble dryer, ironing board and iron. A separate boot room designed for dry ski boots etc was useful for dry wet shoes. The table football and table tennis were a hit with the kids. The chalet was very clean, well laid out and the living areas superb. We were there in May/June 2011 with temperatures 27C one day and 3C the next with a sprinkling of snow but the chalet well insulated meant it was cool on the hot days and warm & cosy when it was cold outside. WiFi in the chalet allowed us to pick emails and the kids to play their games without incurring a large mobile phone bill.

Leysin , a 10 minute walk from the chalet, is very pretty with plenty of restaurants and shops. We were there in between the ski season and just before the summer season but still plenty to do.

The owners were very friendly and responded promptly to every email. They left us plenty of brochures and notes on things to do during our stay.

The drive from Geneva Airport was very straightforward and we had no problems finding Leysin or Chalet Le Renard.

The key question, as always, is would we go back to Leysin and Chalet Le Renard? The answer is an emphatic yes to both.
