Fabulous Ski Holiday in tradition Swiss Ski chalet

5 of 5
Just back from a lovely skiing holiday in a beautiful chalet “La Taupiniere.” Recommendation from friends and couldn’t fault it. Warm homely chalet perfectly described with accompanying pictures. Gorgeous location only minutes from the funicular taking you to the beautiful Swiss mountains for some breathtaking scenery and amazing skiing for all levels. Mountain top restaurants with far reaching views over Switzerland. The chalets location allows easy access to Gstaad, Gruyere and other local towns & villages to sample delicious fondue and other local dishes without driving for miles. The Swiss were delightful and the area scenically beautiful and clean. On our return to the chalet a quick dip in the private swimming pool before a well earnt G&T! Looking so much to returning.
