About the property

living/dining area w/ mountain view, bedroom, bathroom, 4 pers., Balcony, parking

Leysin is kind of a well kept secret. It's charming and beautiful and not overrun. You will enjoy stunning views of the mountains and have great hiking, climbing and skiing possibilities. The apartment is located on the quiet edge of the village in the countryside and yet is close-by to everything you need since the village is small. There is only one other apartment on the top floor. When entering the apartment you first come into the kitchen area equipped with everything you need for self-catering (fridge, stove, oven, microwave and kitchen accessories). Next, you arrive at the large, bright living/dining area with a comfortable sofa bed for two people. From here you can go to the balcony, bedroom (double bed or two single beds) or bathroom (bath / shower).

About Andy Maier

We used to live in Leysin and love to return here. It is spectacularly beautiful and we never tire of the views here. We love the mountains and like to hike, do the via ferrata (climbing) or sit on the balcony and enjoy the view over a drink or a meal. In the winter we like to come and ski or snow shoe and we're so close to the slopes/pistes that you can stop back in for a meal or coffee break.

Andy Maier purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Andy Maier chose Alps of Vaud

We chose this apartment because there are so many opportunites right behind the house: the mountain, hiking, climbing (via ferrata), meadows. From the living area and the balcony you can enjoy your coffee or beverage of choice while taking in the spectacular views of the French Alps. The apartment is situated in a quiet area and yet has easy access to everything that you need. You just have to come and experience it for yourself. Up to now, all the visitors to our apartment have absolutely loved it. Test it for yourself!

Stunning mountain panorama, very nice location at the edge of Leysin
average rating of 4.928571 based on 14 reviews

Perfect for families. Enough space, parking, near enough to beginner slope to come back for lunch..

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely few days at Andy's place. Enough space and well equipped with 2 small kids. Free parking and right next to the beginners slope and free magic carpet, so we could walk to the slope and easily go back for lunch or if the weather turned bad. Leysin has a host of other activities as well like skating, tubing and swimming, indoor climbing etc. A beautiful view from the balcony really helped make for a nice alpine getaway with small kids...

Cozy bright apartment with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

Andy's apartment was clean and well-equipped. The floor to ceiling windows let in so much sunlight that even the chilliest days felt toasty warm. And the big tub in the bathroom was perfect for an apres-ski soak. There were plenty of books, games for the kids, videos and touring info to keep us in the know and entertained. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Good value for Ideal location and service

  • 5 of 5

The flat is located just in front of the beginner slopes where children initiate their skying.

from the flat, you can ski down this area directly to the cabins, so truly ideal location, especially with children when you don't want to walk too much. Leysin being a very spread out village, it can easily take you more than 20 minutes to walk to the ski cabins depending on where you are living , which is why I insist on the fact Andy's flat is ideally located.

It has everything one would need to live comfortably for a week, from numerous towels to kids films and games, sheets, all cooking utensils, fondu equipment, vacum, wifi, and a parking space (not always the case in Leysin).

It is spacious for 4 compared to some mountain flats, and has a huge panoramic window that gives on to a nice terrasse, and the mountains all around, offering you a stunning view all day long.

I have nothing negative to say at all, in fact, as we come each year to Leysin, we intend to rent this flat each time we come now :)

Thank you so much!

Serenity with a spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting and comfortable and pleasant accommodations in Leysin. Facilities for cooking were perfect and the location is a great base for exploring Les Diablerets, Chateau d'Oex and Glacier 3000. I highly recommend this for property and the owner is a pleasure to work with.

Perfect appartement, perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We have spent a perfect week in Leysin. The appartement has all the comfort you need and is very spacious. Sonia made us feel welcome from the first till the last minute we were in Leysin. If we would ever go back to Leysin, we would like to stay at the appartement again. I think it is the best place to stay for a week of skiing. The communication with Andy was very smooth.

We were very happy to stay here.

Leysin is a charming village with a breathtaking panoramic view of mountains above 3000m (10,000ft). This small town is situated at the end of a mountain road (no through traffic) and offers something for everyone whether you like to relax or prefer a more active vacation.

A via ferrata (climbing), hiking and a cable car (to get to the top of the mountain) are all in the immediate vicinity of the apartment. In the winter you can ski from the house directly to the cable car. In summer use the cable car for downhill mountain biking. The apartment is well situated for almost any mountain activity, both in winter and summer. Beautifully situated towns along Lake Geneva such as Montreux are very worthwhile destinations and can be reached in 30-40 minutes. A special highlight in July is the world famous Montreux Jazz Festival.

Other activities: climbing, downhill biking, skating (year round). Skiing: Leysin itself has great skiing and snowboarding (up to about 2000m) without long waits. The apartment is located 50 meters from a beginner slope and the cable car station is within easy reach.

A 15-20 minute drive away (also reachable by train / bus) you can find the Glacier 3000 ski area with year-round skiiing. Nordic skiing is also a nice option. There are some nice groomed trails with spectacular views. And the surrounding area offers further choices (Les Mosses, Les Diablerets).
