Car: Recommended

Chalet Le Renard is situated on the edge of Leysin village, 1.5 hours by car from Geneva or 2 hours by train. It is reached by a romantic mountain railway connection from Aigle. Leysin is part of the Alpes de Vaud ski area that includes Villars, Les Diablerets, Glacier 3000 & Les Mosses. It is also only 45 mins from the Porte de Soleil ski area by car. Leysin has some of the most breathtaking views in the Alps and the summer activities are numerous, including walking, swimming, mountain biking, rock climbing etc. Leysin is famous for its revolving restaurant at Berneuse with incredible 360 degree views of lake Geneva and the southern Alps. Leysin has many good restaurants, many of which are within 5 minutes walking distance of Chalet Le Renard. Leysin boasts a huge skating arena which operates all year round, swimming pool, tennis courts and an amazing floodlit toboggan run in the winter. It is the complete holiday location for summer or winter.

Other Activities: Skating, Tobogganing, Via Ferrata


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I am a semi retired farmer living in Northern Ireland, We have a large family, all of whom enjoy skiing and mountain life in general.

Why the Owner Chose Leysin, Switzerland:
We came to Leysin to stay with friends, fell in love with the place and ended up building this chalet. We love the peace and quietness of our location at the bottom of the village. In summer we can enjoy our quite large garden and the fantastic walks and hikes in the mountains. Leysin has some of the most dramatic scenery I have seen anywhere in the Alps. We do most of our skiing in Diablerets and Villars, which are less than 15 minutes away by car and on the same lift pass as Leysin. Huge ski area and very rarely any queues. Leysin skiing is great but not as extensive as the Diablerets/Villars area.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Modern, warm, comfortable chalet. Wonderful views, very quiet and peaceful. Brilliant for both summer and winter.
