Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday chalet in Leysin - Chalet Roundhouse

Luxury 5 bed spacious chalet with superb mountain views and large garden

Chalet Roundhouse is a traditional Swiss chalet which has five bedrooms, each with its own shower and toilet, three are en-suite and the master bedroom also has large bathroom. 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 open fire. The dining area opens up to the luxury fitted kitchen and separate study. The chalet has central underfloor heating with continuous hot water.

During the summer we offer 10% off for rents of two weeks and 15% for rents of three weeks or more.

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 & 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 Mary Round

We live in Dorset in the UK and our children live in London and Geneva.

Mary Round purchased this chalet in 2007

Why 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 or we can easily collect fresh bread in the morning for breakfast.

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.

Fantastic Family Chalet

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fantastic week's stay at the Chalet Roundhouse which provided a home from home for four adults and five children aged from 2 to 7 years old - it was a real bonus to have CBeebies on the TV!

The chalet is comfortably furnished and well equipped and has everything you could possibly need for a week away. It has a large open plan living/dining/kitchen room which was a great place for everyone to be together after a day's skiing. There is a sunny deck that stretches along two sides of the house with fantastic views and overlooking a large level garden where our attempts to build an igloo are probably still visible!

It is a short walk uphill from the chalet to get to the lifts which was a little hard work with kids and ski gear in tow - I think I will search out the ski lockers next time! The ski area is not huge by any means but it provided great entertainment for all of us for the whole week. It should also be pointed out that there are also a number of other ski areas available on the same lift pass but we never felt the need to venture beyond Leysin.

The lift pass is free for under 9s and the saving went towards paying the Swiss Ski School. The children all enjoyed their time in ski school and made good progress. They were very proud to collect their badges in a presentation ceremony with the instructors held on the Thursday evening.

The chalet is easy walking distance to a supermarket and a couple of conveniently located bars to duck in on the way back with the shopping!

For the grande finale to the week we went to the toboggan park which was great fun for the over 5s (and dad) and comes highly recommended.

Many thanks to Mary for all her top tips and advice on the local area, we were all very sad to leave Chalet Roundhouse and Leysin and very much hope to return one day :)

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the great feedback Ed! It makes it all worthwhile when we know it all runs smoothly. The igloo you built has just about melted with the beautiful weather we have had lately. Next visit to Switzerland you will have to visit Lavey-les-bains, Spa and Thermal Springs. Looking forward to welcome you back again Best wishes Mary & Steve

Leysin provided us with a week of fond memories, The Chalet was perfect with stunning views. We loved the lounge with the log burning fire. It was only a short walk to the shops for fresh bread in the morning.We are looking forward to returning to the Chalet in the summer and to spend sometime on lake Geneva.Also it is a short journey to Montreaux and Villeneuve. We were provided with very helpful details regarding the Chalet from Steve and Mary which completed a very enjoyable holiday.

Superb holiday

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location, less than 5 minutes walk from the lifts. Enjoyed large, sunny balcony especially the glass of mulled wine after a long day on the slopes. Skied mostly in Leysin and Les Mosses which was beautiful, then one day visited Villars and Les Diablerets and another day in the Portes du Soleil for exciting variety. Watched the paragliders land in front of the chalet- we'll do that next time. Chalet Roundhouse was superb in all ways. We'll be back!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We have family in town and the chalet was a great gathering spot. The views are incredible and the sunny deck was a lovely spot for enjoying meals or a glass of wine with family and friends. The kitchen was well equipped and had more than enough plates, utensils and glasses for a dinner with a large group in the dining room. The beds were very comfortable and the shower water pressure was great. It was very quiet except for the lovely sound of cowbells in the distance.

We walked to the village for shopping or eating at one of the many restaurants. It is a very short walk to the ski lift.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend the house. We hope to come back in the future

Fantastic Chalet

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic Chalet with amazing views over the Valley and Dents de Midi.

It is better than described in the photos. The large open plan kitchen/dining/living room give a spacious feel and made it ideal for a large group. We had grandparents, grandchildren, and parents in a party of eight and found it very easy to live in.

We cooked our own food every night and found the kitchen more than adequate for roast dinners or snacks.

The rooms were good with comfy beds and those with on suite had excellent showers etc.

The chalet is 5 minutes walk from the main ski station and there are plenty of supermarkets and restaurants in the village nearby.

Leysin is thoroughly undiscovered by British tourists which has its advantages (!) however being Switzerland most people speak English. The village is lovely with excellent facilities such as a 25m swimming pool, tobogganing park and ice rink. The skiing is small compared to the bigger Alpine resorts however it was fine for family skiing with young kids. There is plenty of off piste of you hit the weather right and there is a snowboard Park at the top with a smaller one for kids which ours enjoyed. The Ecole de Suisse ski school was good and the instructors were great with our kids.

The weather was like spring when we were there and so the large balcony and veranda were well used for sunbathing. The chalet was very clean, modern and well maintained with very little signs of wear.

The owners were excellent and provided lifts to the local railway station when we left and also put up cot at the last minute

when we arrived late having forgotten to ask for one in advance.

I would recommend Chalet Roundhouse to anyone with a large group.
