Fantastic base for a family holiday
We were a group of seven adults and two babies staying in Leysin for a week to attend a family wedding and we found the chalet ideal for our varied needs. It is a very comfortable house that is exceedingly well equipped and spacious. The kitchen area is spacious and has every possible equipment and utensils and we were surprised to find that the cupboards were well stocked with a variety of items. We appreciated that each bedroom had its own ensuite and the babies loved sharing the really big bath of the master bedroom.
The house is situated in a quiet area of the village but with an easy walk to the centre and the shops. There is masses of outside space and fantastic uninterrupted views of the valley and the mountains. There are many easy walking footpaths in the immediate area. Our walking was somewhat limited with having an eleven month old and a twenty month old with us but they really enjoyed the visits to the goat farm and the horses further down in the valley. The wedding reception had been held in the amazing revolving restaurant on top of the mountain and we also took the cable car again on another day and followed the trail back down to the village.
All in all this rental suited us perfectly and gave the family a wonderful opportunity for a relaxing holiday together in amazing surroundings - both house and village. All the booking arrangements were dealt with quickly and efficiently by the manager Stacey including our request for two cots.
Exceeded ALL expectations - 5 STARS
We have recently come back from Chalet le Murier and we miss it already. We hired this to celebrate my Inlaws golden wedding anniversary - So it was a mixture of ages. This was truly an exceptional house and felt like a real home. Loved all the personal touches from the owners. Perfect for families of all ages. Very spacious and easy to keep clean. Slippers were even provided. There was even some suncream (for which we were so thankful for as we had sun for the whole week - unexpected). The bedrooms were lovely, spacious and had plenty of lovely soaps and toiletries. We had the master bedroom and felt spoilt with that huge bath. Plenty of towels and linen. The beds were so comfortable and I now want a new mattress at home, just the same. The kitchen had every pot, pan, dish, utensil etc you would need..and more. The cupboards were very well stocked and had all the herbs and spices you need, and many other larder items. For a large group of us, we never felt on top of each other as there was so much space. All the mod cons of wifi and sky TV if that's your thing. The view was amazing from the terrace.
We went up to the ski resort and managed to do a bit of sledging - some of our group live in Australia and this was their first experience of snow. The cable cars are only 5 mins from the chalet.
Leysin itself is lovely. Some of us took a few hikes each morning. There is also a small sized play park in Leysin, about 10 mins walk from the chalet which our kids aged 10-14 loved. We went for a day trip to the Labirythe Adventure which is ideal for kids of all ages. They did not want to leave. Although, this is not open in the winter as it's an outdoor park... It's pricey, but worth it.
Last but not Least, the owners could not have been more helpful and we were even given a welcome gift. Lovely people to speak with and always able to help. They clearly take pride in this home and love to share it with others.
Overall, we would return in a heartbeat if we could. THANK YOU to the owners.
We had an incredible time at the chalet, five star accommodation which remains homely and comfortable. Everything you could need is provided at a high standard. The open plan kitchen and living area is fabulous and seats everyone comfortably. Every room is ensuite and beds are almost too comfortable that getting out of them in the morning proves difficult! We found it hard to leave and will return as soon as possible. Thanks to our hosts for a wonderful stay, all your help and advice and our welcome gift!

We had great time at Le Murier.
An outstanding home in wonderful location
Came from Ireland on first visit to Switzerland. Found it so easy to get there - get train at Geneva airport to Aigle and then the cog train to Leysin. It was a beautiful trip along lake Geneva and up the mountain to Leysin.
Chalet le murier is located on the outskirts of the village and convenient to ski lift, tourist office,supermarkets,pubs/restaurants,sporting facilities,bus and train stations etc.-all within easy walking distance.
There are stunning views from the chalet of the valley and mountains.
The chalet was beautiful,spacious,clean,and homely. From the front hall through the kitchen, living area, bedrooms, bathrooms to the verandas and patio - all were fully kitted out to a very high standard.
The owners Pat and Sidney were most helpful and facilitated us in every way possible.
We got beautiful weather for the two weeks except for one day when it snowed for the entire day ( we lit the lovely log fire) and another of rain accompanied by thunder and lightening. This was very spectacular. We had a barbecue some evenings.
The countryside is a walkers and bikers paradise. The mountain walks and trails are numerous and truly awesome and some are a must do - le Berneuse, with its revolving restaurant Le Kuklos, at 2030mtrs (by cable car),la Prafanda and all the designated viewing areas are well worth the effort. We found the walk to Aigle via the mountain trail and vineyards very interesting and memorable. The lower slopes and meadows were awash with flora and fauna. The array and volume of flowers, grasses and plants was very impressive. We also enjoyed a trip to Montreux and a boat trip on lake Geneva. We found public transport to be very good and efficient. The regional pass is very useful and economical for those intending to use the system.
Overall we had a most enjoyable time. We highly recommend the chalet to our friends and look forward to return visit .
