Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday chalet in Ormont-Dessus - La Sernanty

Dreamy chalet "unique in the world and close to everything." Nice view

This high mountain chalet from the 18th century offers a modern renovation that has respected the building original style. It has a sought-after decoration, a mountain spirit, all the comforts, and authenticity. The chalet has been constantly published (magazines, decoration sites, and television programs). It has a south-facing location: bright from sunrise to sunset. There are 2 terraces with a wonderful view over the plains and the mountains. It is very quiet, in the middle of nature, 10 min away from the Diablerets station. There is a good transport connection to the Villars station. The chalet is 30 min away from Gstaad and Montreux. We offer a flexible rental for using 2 or 3 bedrooms (different rate). The minimum stay is 1 week. The chalet with a permanent moderate temperature is heated by Minérgie standard, using geothermal energy and a heating pump. There is a double-oriented fireplace between the living room and dining room, creating a magic atmosphere. In all seasons, sporty and non-sporty people can enjoy all the facilities located nearby. The region offers a large variety of activities. There are interesting places for children and adults. The owners will share with their clients all the good plans and addresses.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed

About Catherine Holinger

We are a couple that loves the mountain, the architecture, and the decoration.

Catherine Holinger purchased this chalet in 2010

Why Catherine Holinger chose Switzerland

We fell in love with the property. The renovation of this small farmhouse from the 18th century was a challenge. We did not want to change its wonderful aspect. We created larger spaces and employed local artisans. Families, friends, and clients will feel like home. During winter, alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, skiing trips, and snowshoes. In the summer, you will enjoy the mountain biking trips and many musical and tourist activities for children and adults.

What makes this chalet unique

The chalet has been published many times (TV, magazines, and decoration sites). The renovation has been carried out by architects respecting the original style of the chalet. It offers a wonderful view, a unique calm, and a "unique location in the world." It is very close to the station and there is a parking space in the chalet

Absolutely Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was fantastic! The chalet is even nicer than the pictures. There are so many neat details in the decoration to be enjoyed. The amenities are all very high end and modern, while at the same time there are really interesting antiques providing loads of character. The owner was extremely helpful and easy to reach for any needs during our stay. We definitely hope to be back!

Sérénité

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 weeks, a mix of holidays and work (my workplace is 1 h drive away). W hiked cool places within a few minutes drive; I wrote research projects on a terrasse with a peaceful view; but overall we enjoyed the mix of tradition and modern style inside the chalet. No doubt this place has a mind !

Owner's Response: Quel plaisir de lire que notre chalet vous aie donné de l'inspiration pour votre travail. Un philosophe, un économiste et un photographe, comme vous, ont trouvé énergie et inspiration dans cette atmosphère que vous décrivez si bien. Grand merci pour votre si sympathique témoignage. A très bientôt!

un endroit de rêve

  • 5 of 5

Tout est fait pour vous permettre de vous reposer et de profiter de la Suisse et de ses bienfaits: un lieu à couper le souffle et une vue à plus de 180 ° sur les sommets, un chalet remarquable, adorable, comme on l'imagine avec un niveau de prestations de très haut niveau sans oublier la proximité des pistes de ski ou de Gstaad, Montreux, Vevey, ... Une détox pour notre quotidien...

Sans oublier les propriétaires qui sont des personnes de gout et d'une très grande gentillesse.

Nous y reviendrons avec un grand plaisir.

Ein Bijou abseits vom Rummel

  • 5 of 5

Das Chalet ist ein wunderbarer Ort um vom Alltag abzuschalten. Die Ruhe und das Ambiente im Haus ist sensationell!

Wir waren begeistert von der Austattung und dem Komfort. Alles ist sehr liebevoll dekoriert und mit viel Geschmack ausgewählt.

Wer dies zu schätzen weis, ist an dem Ort gut aufgehoben.

Die Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind sehr gut und die Gegend bietet viele Möglichkeiten für Skifahrer und Wanderer.

Chalet authentique, revisité avec confort moderne, superbe emplacement, propriétaires diligents

  • 5 of 5

Un chalet d'antan, réorganisé aux besoins de la vie d'aujourd'hui, pour voyageurs de passage exigeants, tant dans la praticité que dans la qualité des matériaux employés.

L'endroit est habilement réarrangé, chaque petit espace a été optimisé. Certes, il faut faire parfois un peu attention car certains passages sont un peu exigus, mais tout cela est en rapport avec le chalet d'origine agricole, qu'un large séjour en plafond cathédrale vient compenser cette impression succincte.

Le chalet donne sur une vallée impressionnante, une vue qui donne vers le lointain, aux gré des couleurs changeantes selon les aléas de la montagne. Deux belles baies vitrées donnent un joli spectacle vice versa, tandis qu'une autre ouverture quadrille le versant avec un arbre sinueux, habilement pensé si bien qu'on croirait à un tableau. Des éléments de montagne, patins et skis, cloches et couvertures de l'armée suisse viennent donner une petite note du passé.

Trois biches sont venu matin et soir brouter à une douzaine de mètres du chalet, ce qui prouve sa tranquillité.

Une impression de calme, de beauté naturelle, une quiétude de l'intérieur pour apprécier le dehors.

Et des propriétaires très accueillants, attentifs et courtois.

Ce qui est plutôt agréable. Et rare.

Fantastique chalet dans un environnement calme

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine en famille dans ce fantastique chalet, l architecture est soignée et moderne, fidèle aux photos et tout est très bien penseé pour un séjour inoubliable.

Les propriétaires ont tout fait pour rendre cette location facile et souple.

Bien qu il faille une voiture pour descendre aux Diablerets centre , c est très rapide et pas vraiment un inconvénient car en contre partie, le chalet bénéficie d une magnifique vue sur la campagne environnante et un grand jardin pour les enfants.

Encore merci !
