Make a holiday rental villa or chalet in Leysin, Switzerland your home away from home

Deep in the mountains of southern Switzerland, Leysin originally came to be known as a scenic health resort due to the wonderfully crisp air, but in recent years, the excellent transport networks in the Alps of Vaud and the sensational natural sporting facilities have meant that Leysin is now a premier Alpine sports resort. The wonderfully friendly atmosphere and magnificent range of facilities have made Leysin, Switzerland, a wonderfully popular family holiday destination.

Things to do in Leysin, Switzerland

During the winter months, Leysin is a bustling ski resort, with an astonishing range of winter sports possibilities on offer. The ski schools in Leysin are world class, offering English speaking instructors, happy to teach to any level of experience and ability. There are five international ski schools in Leysin, so finding experienced tuition will certainly not pose any problems. There are 17 lifts taking skiers from their Leysin chalets up into the mountains, or to the fantastic snow park. There are some excellent challenges on the Glacier 3000 for both skiers and snowboarders, as well as a lit cross-country skiing trail. Away from the slopes, Leysin is a great destination for snow shoe trekking and tobogganing.

Away from the slopes, there is always a massive amount happening in Leysin. The Castle of Aigle is wonderfully impressive, and well worth investigating, but for those still looking for an extra hit of adrenaline, there is plenty on offer too. The Snowtube Parc has the largest snowtube facilities in Europe, and the revolving restaurant at the summit of the Berneuse affords spectacular views. The international dog-sled race and the Leysin Nescafe Champs Open are magnificent winter events too.

During the summer months, accommodation in Leysin remains in high demand. The 250km of hiking trails, endless mountain biking routes and challenging rock climbing means that outdoor sports enthusiasts flock to the region. The Tour d’Ai is a feather in the cap of many serious climbers, and should not be attempted by anyone without a suitable level of experience. June is a magnificent time to be in a self catering Leysin holiday rental as the Leysin Music Panorama folklore festival is an absolute joy to witness. The Rock and Blues Festival and the Midsummer Festival, both in August should also not be missed if you are staying in Leysin accommodation at the time.

An amazing, beautiful and hugely comfortable chalet

I would highly recommend The Big Bear. It's a stunning chalet, amazingly comfortable, and right on the piste. We have just returned from a perfect family ski holiday and hope to return!
