About the property

Stunning 5 bed spacious chalet / 5 bathrooms & BBQ hut .Leysin

Chalet Roundhouse is a traditional Swiss chalet in Leysin which has five bedrooms, each with its own shower and toilet, three are en-suite and the master bedroom also has a large bathroom with shower. Four of the bedrooms have balconies with breathtaking views towards Villars and Les Diablarets. The spacious lounge seats 10 comfortably with Satellite TV, free access to the internet, and a cosy fire. The dining area opens up to the luxury fitted kitchen and separate study. The chalet has central underfloor heating with continuous hot water.

The ski station is 5 mins walk. In summer the ski lifts are open and give access to magnificent mountain walks. There are a wide range of activities in the village including mountain biking, skating, tennis, horse riding, paragliding and swimming in two sports centres. The Chalet has a large enclosed balcony suitable for small children which leads to a beautiful large flat gardens. Chalet Roundhouse is the perfect choice for families or those seeking to relax. Leysin is only a short train journey to Montreaux, Lausanne, Vevey & Villeneuve on Lake Geneva where there are so many things to see and do. Leysin is also an excellent base to visit many interesting places including Gstaad and Gruyeres. As well as the many things to do in Leysin we recommend you try Lavey - les bains Spa & Thermal Springs. Also only a short drive away is The Aquapark, Switzerland's largest indoor waterpark

Skiing & Snowboarding: The seven resorts of Leysin, Villars, Gryon, Les Diablerets, Les Mosses, Rougemont and Chateau-d'Oex make up the spectacular skiing area of Alpes Vaudoise, the skipass covers all resorts and is even free to under 9s. With 74 lifts and 220km of downhill pistes (135 miles) this must be one of the 'prized areas' for skiers visiting Switzerland. The region is just 115km from Geneva and can be reached in nine hours or less on mainly motorways from Calais. The Bern-Lausanne-Geneva motorway goes right past the 'gateway town' of Aigle and from here you turn off to Leysin or to Villars via Ollon.

Leysin has 17 lifts and a snow park with a half pipe, and ski tours and snow-shoe treks offer skiers and snowboarders ideal opportunities for enjoyment. And there is also a snow sport school, a lit cross-country skiing trail and toboggan run. A round of the Snowboarding World Championships is held in Leysin each year.

250 kilometres of hiking trails, mountain tours and interesting bike tours offer plenty of exercise in the open countryside. Mountaineers find several challenges in the precipitous chalk rock-faces which resemble the Dolomites. The difficult via ferrata at the Tour d'Aï is for experienced mountaineers only.

Events Nearby: World famous jazz festival at Montreux (July) and the lesser known and more intimate jazz festival at Cully (April).

International dog-sled race in Les Mosses - an air of the deep North: 700 dogs and their mushers compete for the prize (March).

Original Black Race - innovative snowboard race in Les Mosses: snow-shoe ascent to the summit and descent by board (March).

Leysin Music Panorama - folklore music festival on the Berneuse (June).

About Steve & Mary Round

We live in Colehill, Wimborne in the UK and our children live in London and Geneva.

Please telephone us to check availability before booking



Steve & Mary Round purchased this chalet in 2007

Why Steve & Mary Round chose Leysin

We absolutely love the position of our Chalet as it is a very short walk to the ski lifts and we can walk into town

What makes this chalet unique

Beautiful Chalet with open fireplace. Very close to lifts and ideal if you wish to return for lunch. Leysin is such a friendly village and there are so many activities to keep us all busy. We can travel so easily to Montreux and Lausanne on Lake Geneva. There are thermal Springs just a short drive away and the largest indoor water park in Switzerland is nearby. We are so lucky to have a beautiful Swiss Chalet and the large wrap around balconies to enjoy the mountain views.

Wonderful chalet amazing location

  • 5 of 5

Mary and Steve Round's chalet is the best we ever have stayed. Beautifully looked after, with a kitchen that is modern, clean and well equipped.

Mary kept in contact with us before the holiday give us helpful advice, information and driving directions.

The barbecue hut is a wonderful touch, truly magical on a cold snowy evening.

Our children have not stopped talking about that and the rest of the holiday.

The location is great, a 5-10 minute walk to the lifts and shops.

We booked to go again next year and will probably be returning again and again.

A big thank you to Mary and Steve for letting us stay.

The wonderful chalet made our holiday a memorable trip.

We can highly highly recommend it!!

The perfect holiday location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful chalet in picturesque Leysin. It is conveniently located for the many amenities the resort has to offer and provides spacious, meticulously maintained facilities. The rooms are immaculate and beautifully furnished in keeping with the traditional style of a mountain resort. The chalet is extremely comfortable and cosily fitted out with a separate barbecue facility adjacent to the property. It's a delightful place to relax and enjoy a get together with family and friends. The chalet is set in a large garden with has a patio with outdoor dining facilities. The views from the property are stunning and add to the charm of this delightful place.

Spacious, clean and perfect

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, spacious, clean, perfect for up to 10 adults

 5 of 5

The ski lifts are within walking distance. The infrastructure (kitchen, bedroom and a lot of bathrooms) is well suited for up to 10 adults. We were a mixed group of adults, kids, toddlers and baby. Some drove skis, others spent a lot of time in the house. The house is very suitable for all different needs.

We were particularly impressed with the friendliness and helpfulness that was offered to us by the landlords Steve and Mary Round!

We would like to spend more holidays in the Roundhouse!

Excellent chalet and immaculately clean. The facilities there were second to none. The surrounding area and local village are delightful, within 5 minutes walk to all local amenities and bars, restaurants and ski/chairlifts. We will certainly return as soon as possible!

A brilliant stay in a wonderful chalet

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in the chalet for a family gathering this summer. This is the first time we've visited the mountains during the summer and we will definitely be coming back! What an action packed week we had - the kids hired mountain bikes, tried their hand at a number of watersports on Lake Geneva, and even went rock climbing in the village. We also enjoyed mountain walks and visited a few of the local vineyards.

The chalet itself is beautiful, in a stunning location with uninterrupted views over the valley and mountains which we enjoyed from the terrace. Inside, it was more than spacious enough for our group of 8. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms clean and modern.

We've stayed in many chalets in the past and this was by far the best. I would thoroughly recommend the chalet for anyone looking to enjoy the mountains - we're all looking forward to returning next summer.

Leysin is located in the Alpes Vaudoise at an altitude of 1200 metres above sea level, it has fantastic views of the Rhone Valley, Mont Blanc, Dents du Midi and LDiablerets and a sun-rich and mild climate. While principally a winter ski resort it has developed into an all-year holidary resort with many facilities for families. Highlights include «Le Kuklos» glass revolving restaurant on the Berneuse (2048 metres above sea level) with 360° panorama view of the Valais mountains and Lake Leman, Les Diablerets and Glacier 3000 - spectacular glacierscape with grand panorama and all-year snow fun, Aigle Castle - dating from 1300 and housing the Vaud Wine and Vine Museum. The Narrow-guage railway network from Aigle runs to Leysin, Les Diablerets and Champéry provide access to the region for those without a car.

This is a perfect base if you are skiing in winter, hiking, biking, playing golf or attending one of the many events in the area, like the Montreux Jazz Festival in summer.
