Overview

About the property

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.

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!

Très belles vacances d'été au calme

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons particulièrement apprécié notre séjour dans le chalet de Catherine, qui correspond tout à fait à la description qui en est faite (ah, tout de même attention pour les grands comme moi, ces vieux chalets n'étaient pas élevés, à part dans le salon, pensez à baisser la tête :-)). Le chalet est décoré avec goût et est très agréable à vivre, se trouve à l'écart sur une petite route, ce que l'on recherchait, mais pas très éloigné des Diablerets (moins de 10' en voiture, et pour les courageux, 80m de dénivelée jusqu'à l'arrêt du train). Pour ne rien gâcher, Catherine reste toujours très disponible pour vous aider en cas de soucis, échanges faciles et agréables. Nous avons bien apprécié les Diablerets, petite station de montagne où il n'y a pas la foule mais où on peut prévoir de multiples activités. Et pour les randonnées, il y a l'embarras du choix même si trouver un vallon totalement déserté et sauvage est difficile : nous sommes en Suisse, et les suisses sont trop attachés à leurs montagnes pour que vous ne rencontriez personne durant une rando :-) !

One of a kind

  • 5 of 5

We have spent a perfect week in this cozy, charm full, beautifully decorated chalet with a real spirit. We enjoyed the music available, the open fire, the practical kitchen, the views, the two terraces (sun in the morning on the first one and sun in the afternoon on the other one) and the beautiful surroundings "of the road". The village Les Diablerets has his authentic charm (not too touristic) and plenty possibilities for a perfect ski holiday (Glacier 3000/Les Diablerets/ Vers l’Eglise).

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!
