Spacious and comfortable with good quality furnishings. It was very well equipped and had everything we needed. There were lovely views from every window and we enjoyed being able to sit out on the patio in the sunshine. Contact with the owners was excellent and the collection and return of keys to the local agent was very smooth. We certainly hope to return soon. Christine and Graham

The surrounding area and local village are delightful, within 5 minutes walk to all local amenities and bars, restaurants and ski/chairlifts. We will certainly return as soon as possible!

                                                                              We had a fantastic week at Nick and Jill's chalet in Leysin in August. Nick was very helpful when booking the chalet, and the pre-arrival information was the best we have ever received, with clear instructions on how to find the property and lots of information about local activities and restaurants. The chalet is indeed superb. It is in a fantastic location, facing away from the village and looking over meadows (complete with cows and their melodic cow bells) to the mountains beyond - every day we woke to stunning views of snow capped peaks. Beautifully finished, with lots of lovely personal touches that made it feel like a home from home rather than a soulless holiday let. It is very comfortable with lots of seating inside and out, and a very well equipped kitchen. The TV with a DVD player worked perfectly and the WiFi was excellent. There was ample space in the bedrooms to store clothes, the bathrooms have a gorgeous deep bath and powerful showers, and there was plenty of linen and towels. Leysin itself is a lovely little village with plenty of shops and restaurants. There is the cable car to the top of the local mountain, and a train from the valley floor, plus a number of indoor and outdoor sports facilities that we didn't use but looked very good. Despite being high up the valley, Leysin is very well placed with lots of fantastic places in less than an hours drive - including Montreux on Lake Geneva, Lac Lioson, Glacier 3000 (yes we did the Peak Walk!), the Grande Dixence Dam, Trient Ravine - in fact there was just so much to do in this area that our original plan to explore further afield was thwarted. We are going to have to return one day.
