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.

Places to visit on holiday to Leysin, Switzerland

The nearby resort of Villars is a great destination, filled with sporting facilities, including mini golf, paragliding and Europe’s finest water park. If there are any sports that you cannot enjoy from a villa in Leysin, a short trip to Villars will quench your desire.

Even better than the photos!

5 of 5
The property has a really nice living space, with patio doors to 2 aspects that can be opened in nice weather. The views are amazing, and the location is one of the best in Leysin: it's a little outside the centre, on a very quiet street, but no more than 10 mins walk from lunch/dinner places (from crepes to pizza/pasta to Chinese to fondue...). There are also several supermarkets in town, where you can find pretty much anything. The garden offers an attractive space to sit out. We had a fox and a small deer wander through while we were there! The washer/dryer are a nice touch, and there's tons of utility space in the basement for drying. Plus the owners have a great set of board games and jigsaw puzzles, for quiet evenings in. There are plenty of nice local walks, including to the nearby Gentian Garden, and it's about 5 mins walk to the nearest sports centre, which has outdoor tennis courts. There are also some nice mountain walks, especially if you take the gondola up to Berneuse. Leysin is also a good base for visiting places like Geneva, Bern, Gruyere and Lucerne - easy motorway driving, plus beautiful mountain vistas if you're happy with back roads. Aquaparc's also a great option if you have kids. The owners were always available for questions, and the property instructions were very clear. Overall, if you're looking to stay in this part of Switzerland, this is a great option, which we can't recommend highly enough.

Cosy chalet with a beautiful mountainpeakview

5 of 5
Our stay in the Chalet was wonderful! It's cosy and feels like home with a warmhearted interieur. Nothing is missing in the kitchen, there is everything you need, even to make a Fondue. The sleeping rooms are underneath the roof and the woodwalls make it very cosy. There are three brandnew bathrooms (reall comfortable, if more than one person would like to take a shower at a time) and in the ground floor, there is a Sauna, great after sports! We're loving it!
