Chalet 'Le Cairn' is a brand new renovated cottage, located in the Swiss Alps not far from Lake Geneva.

The cottage has stunning views and is within walking distance to everything you need on a vacation in the mountains. In winter you can ski directly to the chalet and is just 400 meters to the lift. The local train station, tourist information, bakery, small supermarket, ski rental, restaurant and super playground is located just 200 meters from the cottage along a small path.

There is lift both in winter and summer. In the winter season to get up to 220 km of slopes. There are slopes of all levels of difficulty, and it is an ideal resort for families. There are snow parks for children, where it is ideal and safe to start his 'ski life' from. Children up to 9 years free ski pass in the area.

In summer there are countless wonderful hiking, mountain biking and an 18 hole golf course with magnificent views. There is free access to the lift system, local buses and mountain train, as well as tennis courts, swimming pools, mini golf mm. Cable car, tennis courts and mini golf are available only 5-10 minutes walk from the cottage.

Le Cairn

The cabin is brand new refurbished. The refurbishment was completed in December 2013.

There are 4 bedrooms on 3 floors. The ground floor and 1st floor is a bathroom and two bedrooms on each floor. 2nd floor is more like a loft furnished with workplace.

There are fast internet connection and laundry room.

The cottage is best suited for 6-8 people.

In the ground floor there are:

2 bedrooms both furnished with a double bed, there are beautiful views from both rooms. There is a bathroom with shower and a small room with washer and dryer.

On the first floor there are:

One bedroom with a double bed here too there is a great view from. Vedsiden of there is a room with a good bunk bed (bed spread 90 cm).

There is a cozy living room which opened up in the ridge, open fireplace and dining area. It is open to the kitchen which is very well equipped with everything I can think of to use in a kitchen and of course with dishwasher, Micro oven coffee, Nespresso machine, etc.

From the living room a staircase up to an open loft.

The living room and three of the rooms are south / southeast wait, there is a alten, one tresse with room for everyone to eat and a lovely small garden where you can also enjoy the view from.

WINTER

Villars / Gryon

Chalet'et lie 200 meters from the piste ends in Gryon / Barboleuse. If you are skilled skier, you can continue the last 200 meters of skiing along a small path.

The lift, which is 400 meters from the chalet, linking one to the 220 km ski tureen Villars / Gryon / Diablerets.

Is approximately 50 km long beautiful rim slopes, snowshoe routes, one of Switzerland's longest toboggan runs and turskisruter. All in all a winter mecca.

There is a small ice rink 200 meters from the cottage, and there are also ski rental, bakery, tourist information, restaurants and a small supermarket. Otherwise, you can go for a walk (1 km) down to a really nice authentic mountain village.

Here are several restaurants and small shops.

If you want a slightly larger selection of shops and restore, you can go to Villars-sur-Allon about 4 km away. This is a more fashionable and touristic mountain village, but still nice. There is also the opportunity to take by train up in the same ski area as from the cabin, or you can be in the city where there is a free ski area for beginners and children, and there is even a ski kindergarten.

You can find many more good information and tips on Villars / Gryon website

Summer

Villars / Gryon is a little paradise in the summer with plenty of options for activities.

There are countless wonderful walks that start right from the hut garden, there are mountain biking and an 18 hole golf course with magnificent views. There is free access to cable cars, local buses and mountain train, as well as tennis courts, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, mini golf, etc. Cable car, tennis courts and mini golf are available 5-10 minute walk from the cottage.

If you want to quickly even higher up you can walk the 400 meters to the cable car starts. From the top you can wander beautiful panoramic tours. There are hiking at all levels. It is a great area with children, as you can take the little train or cable car up, thereby avoiding the substantial increases. From here you can choose paths without the wild precipices close to the path. But if you want greater challenges, you can also get it. If you choose such trips, you should check the weather forecast carefully as some of the routes recommended in wet weather. One can always just walk past the tourist office, which is 5 minutes from the cottage and offer advice on trips.

If you take a little down the mountain, there are also many great trips to take. The vineyards starts before you are down in the Rhone Valley, and there are a myriad of fine small villages which produce local wine. There are 30 min drive to Lake Geneva. Montreux. Vevey and Lausanne are all great cities to visit. If you come in late summer, it is possible to participate in vinfesterne and wine tasting in the villages in the area. There are numerous music festivals over the summer, when Montreux Jazz Festival is the most famous.

If you are for pure enjoyment, there are beautiful thermal baths with water from hot springs.

You can find much more information by going to Gryon / Villars website:

Transportation:

Gryon is located 125 km from Geneva. There are direct flight with Easy Jet at good prices from Copenhagen and in winter, Norwegian has also departures to Geneva, they also flies from Billund and Aalborg, still above Copenhagen.

From Geneva airport it is possible to take the train up to the hut train stops just 5 min walk along a small path from the cottage. You take the train from Geneva Airport to Bex and change there for a little togbjergbane (a beautiful walk) to the small station Barbolouse / Gryon ride from the airport to the hut takes a total of 2 hours.

It is of course also possible to drive the 1300km from Denmark, or take the night train to Basel with or without car.

I would like to help with the planning of the trip to Switzerland Chalet "Le Cairn"
