Leysin has been noted for its sunny climate for over 100 years and is situated on a plateau 1250m above sea level with southerly views of the Dents du Midi across the Rhone valley. The village is readily accessible by road but also by train using the Aigle - Leysin narrow gauge railway. In winter, skiing is the main attraction with both downhill and cross country and there is a snow park with a half-pipe and jumps for adventurous skiers and snowboarders. A free bus service also links Leysin with the nearby resorts of Les Mosses and La Lecherette providing 100km of runs. Further afield the resort of Les Diablerets (25mins by car) links with Villars and high altitude skiing can be found on the nearby glacier (Glacier 3000). There is also a skating rink and toboggan park. In summer there are plenty of well marked hiking trails and many mountain bike downhill runs and trails. Mountaineering and via ferrata can also be experienced. In the village there are tennis courts both indoors and outdoors, an indoor swimming pool and a horse riding school.

At the top of the telecabine on the Berneuse (2048m) is the famous Kuklos rotating restaurant offering a 360degree panoramic view of the local mountains and Lake Geneva. Aigle castle houses a museum of wine and wine-making. There are golf courses at Aigle and Villars and a water park on the banks of Lake Geneva.

Leysin is a perfect place for energetic holidays or simply a relaxing time in the mountains.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Once again we had a wonderful time at your chalet. The place has such a welcome feel to it. This is our third stay and even though our second child has just gradulated from LAS and we won't have children to come and visit here, they will still be asking us to make a return visit. This mountain has been a big part of our lives for six years. We are sure to visit again.

An outstanding home in wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Came from Ireland on first visit to Switzerland. Found it so easy to get there - get train at Geneva airport to Aigle and then the cog train to Leysin. It was a beautiful trip along lake Geneva and up the mountain to Leysin.

Chalet le murier is located on the outskirts of the village and convenient to ski lift, tourist office,supermarkets,pubs/restaurants,sporting facilities,bus and train stations etc.-all within easy walking distance.

There are stunning views from the chalet of the valley and mountains.

The chalet was beautiful,spacious,clean,and homely. From the front hall through the kitchen, living area, bedrooms, bathrooms to the verandas and patio - all were fully kitted out to a very high standard.

The owners Pat and Sidney were most helpful and facilitated us in every way possible.

We got beautiful weather for the two weeks except for one day when it snowed for the entire day ( we lit the lovely log fire) and another of rain accompanied by thunder and lightening. This was very spectacular. We had a barbecue some evenings.

The countryside is a walkers and bikers paradise. The mountain walks and trails are numerous and truly awesome and some are a must do - le Berneuse, with its revolving restaurant Le Kuklos, at 2030mtrs (by cable car),la Prafanda and all the designated viewing areas are well worth the effort. We found the walk to Aigle via the mountain trail and vineyards very interesting and memorable. The lower slopes and meadows were awash with flora and fauna. The array and volume of flowers, grasses and plants was very impressive. We also enjoyed a trip to Montreux and a boat trip on lake Geneva. We found public transport to be very good and efficient. The regional pass is very useful and economical for those intending to use the system.

Overall we had a most enjoyable time. We highly recommend the chalet to our friends and look forward to return visit .

Beautifully Appointed and Situated Chalet

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent an amazing two weeks in this scenic part of the world. Have had some good spring weather and enjoyed the peace and quiet of the place. The chalet is modern, spacious, clean, extremely comfortable and very well specced. Lovely views and close to all the amenities and a great base for walking. Pat and Sid are very helpful through the whole process. Would highly recommend the chalet and it would be a great location for a skiing holiday with the lift station a short walk away.

Home from home - great with young children!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this chalet with another family and it was perfect. Our children range from 1-6 years and everything was provided (cot, highchair, stairgate). It was very clean and well equipped - we even had a BBQ in the snow! There was games, books and DVDs for the children. The owners were helpful from start to finish and responded quickly to any queries we had. We were there at the end of the ski season so the resort and slopes were quiet which suited us perfectly. The only downside is the nursery slope is a bit of a walk uphill. However, I believe there may be bus which we didn't utilise. If you're not using the nursery slope the ski lifts are easy and quick to get to. Would definitely return.

Extremely comfortable, ideally situated chalet

  • 5 of 5

We had a great skiing week staying in Chalet le Murier. It was extremely comfortable - the beds were great and every bedroom had an ensuite. The bedrooms in the lower ground floor where we stayed were ideal for a family with young kids. The kids had a bedroom which was really spacious with books and beanbags. They were very happy. The kitchen/open plan living/dining area is really spacious and very well equipped. Pat and Sidney were extremely helpful with directions and all sorts of advice and tips for our stay. Very happy memories, thank you.
