Gstaad and the Saanenland: Gstaad is not only renowned for being one of the top Alpine destinations enjoyed by the rich and famous but it is a must for anyone looking to sample Swiss mountain scenery at its finest. Gstaad has firmly positioned itself as a fantastic destination for both winter and summer and prides itself on offering an annual calendar packed with well-known cultural and sporting events such the Gstaad Open tennis tournament, and classical and country music festivals. It is also a great base for walkers who can enjoy exploring the Wanderwegs whilst listening to the sound of Swiss cow bells.

Diablerets 3000: Skiers can 'Live the Legend' in both summer and winter up on Diablerets which can be reached via Reusch, just 4 min drive from the chalet. Diablerets also links up to the whole Villars region in the canton of Valais. Over the Col du Pillon, and into another canton (Vaud) where French is spoken, visitors can enjoy the lovely Diablerets village which provides a good variety of restaurants.

About Jenny Stenson

We are a British family who have been living in Switzerland for many years. During the winter, we live only a 10-min drive from the chalet and are on hand if you need any help with anything.

On parle également le français und ein bischen Deutsch!

Jenny Stenson purchased this chalet in 2010

Why Jenny Stenson chose Gstaad area

We chose to build our chalet here as it has such a wonderful location with fantastic mountain views. While the location is quiet and peaceful, the main road is nearby, so we never have any problems with access in winter and the bus stop is nearby for access to local towns. The chalet is situated by a picturesque river and is only a short stroll from the quaint village of Gsteig which has some lovely walks and great cross country skiing in winter. We built the chalet in 2010 and have created a bright open living space with three bedrooms which can all fit two single beds and which have fitted wardrobes. Outside, we have decked terrace and a garden with a lovely log table for outdoor dining. The outdoor space is also safe for children to play. We will also accept pets. The chalet has underfloor heating which is great to come home to when it's freezing outside. We also have an indoor heated storage room for any outdoor gear. For those who need to keep in touch with the outside world, although you might not want to when you get there (!), we have satellite TV and excellent WIFI. If you don't fancy going far to eat out, there is a good restaurant just by the chalet.

What makes this chalet unique

We have rented many places in various mountain locations over the year and have often found that properties within the same price bracket as ours are furnished with items that have seen better days and which are poorly equipped (a jumble of old pots and pans and not enough crockery, glasses etc). Chalet properties may often be quite dark. In addition, the reference 'sleeps 6' often refers to a sofa bed or a chair bed! We have 6 real beds!

People who have rented our chalet have told us that what they most appreciate is coming to a home from home with everything they need. We also designed the windows of the chalet to give it a bright an open feel with modern furnishings which have a mountain décor touch. One review we got mentions that the chalet smells gorgeous! This is due to the solid wooden floors and the Ralph Lauren candles! We also have one family who have returned to the chalet three times!

Perfect winter getaway…

  • 5 of 5

We (5 persons with dog) went to Gsteig the week over New Year’s Eve and had a lovely stay. The chalet is very cozy, perfectly equiped and the owners were very helpful (thanks again!) regarding any tips and suggestions concerning the region of Gstaad. The chalet lies on a quiet campsite but is only a 10 min. drive away from Gstaad. The whole Gstaad region, of course, is beautiful and breathtaking and provides many possibilites for sports and leisure (winter and summer).

All in all, it’s the perfect getaway for anybody who likes it cozy and homely…and if you want some action, it’s very near.

What a way to relax!!!! Riley K.

  • 4 of 5

The chalet is on a quiet campsite with lovely views of the mountains from the veranda and through the panoramic sliding doors. Gstaad and the cable-car for the Diablerets and the glacier of Tsanfleuron are only a short ride away. It is well suited to somebody with limited mobility as everything is on one floor though one step gives access to the veranda and entrance to the property. The chalet smells absolutely wonderful, it is tastefully furnished and well maintained. The result is a modern cosy atmosphere which provided us with a very comfortable stay. The owners are friendly and helpful and even accomodated us with a midweek stay. They were easy to contact via e-mail and they made every effort to ensure that everything was ready for our stay and somebody would be there to greet us.

A lovely cosy home from which to enjoy a beautiful area of Switzerland which has plenty to offer for young, old or the adventurous alike!!!!

A truly memorable vacation

  • 5 of 5

First I would like to thank the owners for a truly memorable vacation at their chalet. Their assistance, advice and willingness to answer questions was delightful and very welcoming. The chalet was exactly as described, beautifully equipped with charming décor. It is very clean and had everything we possibly required. 6 persons were easily accommodated and all were more than satisfied with the facilities offered.

In addition to the wonderful accommodation the location and views were amazing. Only being 30 meters from the river was great. It is easy to access to the main road. This was certainly the perfect choice for a relaxing family break which was topped off by snow in July.

Thanks again to the owners for an excellent vacation we had. I would certainly recommend this property to my friends and relatives. It provided excellent value for money and some fantastic memories.
