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.

The perfect holiday location

5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful chalet in picturesque Leysin. It is conveniently located for the many amenities the resort has to offer and provides spacious, meticulously maintained facilities. The rooms are immaculate and beautifully furnished in keeping with the traditional style of a mountain resort. The chalet is extremely comfortable and cosily fitted out with a separate barbecue facility adjacent to the property. It's a delightful place to relax and enjoy a get together with family and friends. The chalet is set in a large garden with has a patio with outdoor dining facilities. The views from the property are stunning and add to the charm of this delightful place.

Exceeded ALL expectations - 5 STARS

We have recently come back from Chalet le Murier and we miss it already. We hired this to celebrate my Inlaws golden wedding anniversary - So it was a mixture of ages. This was truly an exceptional house and felt like a real home. Loved all the personal touches from the owners. Perfect for families of all ages. Very spacious and easy to keep clean. Slippers were even provided. There was even some suncream (for which we were so thankful for as we had sun for the whole week - unexpected). The bedrooms were lovely, spacious and had plenty of lovely soaps and toiletries. We had the master bedroom and felt spoilt with that huge bath. Plenty of towels and linen. The beds were so comfortable and I now want a new mattress at home, just the same. The kitchen had every pot, pan, dish, utensil etc you would need..and more. The cupboards were very well stocked and had all the herbs and spices you need, and many other larder items. For a large group of us, we never felt on top of each other as there was so much space. All the mod cons of wifi and sky TV if that's your thing. The view was amazing from the terrace. We went up to the ski resort and managed to do a bit of sledging - some of our group live in Australia and this was their first experience of snow. The cable cars are only 5 mins from the chalet. Leysin itself is lovely. Some of us took a few hikes each morning. There is also a small sized play park in Leysin, about 10 mins walk from the chalet which our kids aged 10-14 loved. We went for a day trip to the Labirythe Adventure which is ideal for kids of all ages. They did not want to leave. Although, this is not open in the winter as it's an outdoor park... It's pricey, but worth it. Last but not Least, the owners could not have been more helpful and we were even given a welcome gift. Lovely people to speak with and always able to help. They clearly take pride in this home and love to share it with others. Overall, we would return in a heartbeat if we could. THANK YOU to the owners.
