About Sarah Dowding
I manage the chalet on behalf of my mother, who purchased the chalet La Taupiniere in 1988. We had previously owned another chalet in the village since 1978. So I have grown up holidaying in Moleson and we really love the chalet and the area.

Why Sarah Dowding chose Moleson-sur-Gruyeres
My parents jumped at the chance to buy La Taupiniere as it had the fabulous indoor swimming pool and more space. Unlike most chalets in Moleson the parking is right outside and there are no steps to the chalet. It is also situated in a very quiet no-through road with just 8 other chalets and there are open fields to the front, so it's very peaceful. As it's been our holiday home for so long, it really is a 'home' - well equipped, nicely furnished and the little touches and details that lift the chalet from being a mere rental to a homely base for your holiday.
What makes this chalet unique
I love being in a lovely little village in the mountains, yet it is so easy to get into the main town of Bulle and to other places in Switzerland. Compared to many ski chalets that are a long way up a mountain, where it's nigh-on impossible to leave once there, Moleson is really well located. So whether you want more skiing, restaurants, supermarkets, the tourist attractions of Gruyeres and the area, or the larger cities of Fribourg, Bern and Geneva - it's all really easy to access. A really great year-round holiday home.
