Gryon Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Large modern chalet with stunning views in tranquil environment

Great for large families looking for a peaceful getaway. Enclosed sunny conservatory perfect for taking in the surrounding mountains. Stunning southern views across the Rhone Valley towards the French Alps. Small grass lawn for children to play in summer.

Sleeps 8 comfortably. 4 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. Open plan kitchen, dining, living areas. Large balcony from living area. Large wooden deck area leading onto lawn garden. Parking next to chalet adjacent to road. Central heating, UK satelite TV, wood burning stove, laundry facilities, outdoor garden furniture, glass wall conservatory ideal for reading in the sun.

Ideal for both winter and summer rental. With 225km of ski runs, ski schools, cross-country skiing, snow shoeing and a snow garden for children to learn to ski. There are 300km of hiking paths and 120km of mountain bike trails. Also a high altitude 18 hole Golf course at 1600m. Close proximity to various family based activities in the area.

The Village: This is a traditional, un-spoilt area of Swizerland located on a sunny shelf in the Alpes Vaudoise which enjoys a full southerly aspect with plenty of sun all day long and superb views of the Dents du Midi range and Mont Blanc.

You won't find concrete high rises, bleak 'purpose built' resort accommodation or the catered chalet package holiday crowd. What you will find are authentic chalets ecclectically arranged on the hillsides, friendly affordable restaurants and a warm, mountain style welcome. If you are looking for a lively night out then there are a couple of trendy bars and clubs in the village.

Skiing: The ski areas are reached either by one of the two cable cars (Barboulouse or Roc d'Orsay) or via a rack and pinion mountain train up to the Col de Bretaye, both afford spectacular views in both Winter and Summer.

There are a number of ski / snowboard schools which have a high standard of instruction and smaller classes than you might otherwise expect. Ecole de Ski Villars is the official ski and snowboard school since 1974. The Villars Swiss Ski and Snowboard School has more than 100 certified ski and snowboard instructors.

For children and beginners there is a nursery lift in the village.

Activities: Skiing

Villars Gryon, excluding the Les Diablerets Glacier, has 100 km of marked ski runs. At an altitude of 1200m - 2120m there is a perfect blend of runs to suit all tastes. Including the Les Diablerets Glacier there is 220 km of marked ski runs up to 3000m.


There are 25 km of cleared paths for walking and snowshoeing. Non-skiers can enjoy a beautiful walk in the sunshine around the lake of Bretaye at 1800 metres.


The Villars 18 hole golf course boasts breathtaking views over the Dents du Midi mountain range. In the winter this course forms part of the ski piste.

Kids Adventure

There is an adventure park at Aigle (Parc Aventure) and and for adults and children the aqua parc at Le Bouveret is open all year round and is just a 25 minute drive.


Trails covering over 120km of challenging forest area.

There is also an artificial ice rink, indoor swimming pool, indoor tennis, squash, fitness centre and bowling alley.

Villars holiday 'Chalet Pic de la Mirandole'- in Gryon
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Pic de la Mirandole once in summer at 2012 and in December 2013.

We love this chalet. We have two young children and we had everything we need for us. Kitchen is well equipped, there is microwave, oven and dishwasher.

Washing machine has a dryer function.

Location is great, you can walk (up and down the hill of course but we didn't mind) to few restaurants.

Outdoor terrace with breathtaking view was favorite place for kids to play and for us have a well deserved glass of wine.

Great chalet for a big family holidays.
