The views from the apartment were excellent, with snow capped peaks visible from the windows. The village had plenty of local walks, but was well located to visit some of the main attractions such as Zermatt/Matterhorn and the Aletsch glacier area. The property itself is situated in a very quite lane, with close proximity to a local store and restaurants. The property is modern and minimalist in fittings, but retains the charm of the ski chalet. The small balcony is a sun trap for evening relaxation.

The apartment itself was impeccably clean, there was everything you'd need, plenty of space inside and out and it was quiet, we couldn't hear any outside noises. We loved all the traditional decorations too. Lea and Arno are brilliant hosts, very friendly and it was easy to communicate. We would recommend everyone to stay in this wonderful place and we'd definitely stay there again when we're on holiday in Switzerland.

Les Naturelles is a modern complex located a short walk from Leukerbad village centre . The second floor apartment was very clean, had everything we needed for a perfect stay, was spacious enough for 4 people. We really liked unspoiled views from the balcony. Booking process was easy and very pleasant. Les Naturelles is a modern well maintained complex located a short walk from Leukerbad village centre Hope to be back one day, thanks very much!
