Welcome to our old authentic swiss chalet.
It is located on the heights of Verbier with a beautifull view on the Combin and massif of Mt Blanc. Very sunny place, although it is close to the golf course, it enjoys great tranquility, because it is surrounded by a nice, wooded park.
Direct access by car, parking place for several cars, winter gears are essential.
3 bedrooms (3 doubles)
1 dining room with fireplace
Wi-Fi broadband connection
taxi airport geneva : CHF. 500.00
The chalet was better than our expectations. It's exactly what I would imagine a charming Swiss chalet to be like. The view is wonderful and I even had breakfast on the patio in the sun. The chalet is clean and has everything you would need including a full kitchen, fireplace and wood, towels etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Yves was very responsive. John, Yve's contact in Verbier was helpful over text but limited in his English.
In terms of location, it's more on the edge of Verbier. The chalet is quite hidden away and our local taxi service wasn't able to find so here's the directions. When driving uphill on Route de la Marlene, take the first left onto a dirt road (marked private with a white sign). The chalet is at the end of the road past a couple other chalets. If you drive on Marlene and see 5a "Hellbore", you've gone too far and missed the left turn.
For local transportation, it's about 10-15 minutes, down and uphill, walk to the bus stop for bus #1 which takes you to Medran. The bus runs every 15 minutes from 8am-8pm and there's a night bus that runs every 30 minutes during the season. If you are willing to go through the downhill neighbor's back yard, you can use their stairs down to a closer bus stop, about 5 minutes walk. I highly recommend using the locker service at Medran to keep skis and boots which is well worth the 8 CHF a day. Treking to the bus and back in ski boots wasn't fun. Taxi service is quite expensive in Verbier (what isn't?). It's about 25 CHF back to the chalet from Medran area.
We had a wonderful time in Verbier in this beautiful, real and authentic family chalet. We can strongly recommend this great opportunity to spend unforgetable family times in Switzerland. We will certainly book it again in the future...
The chalet is very finely furbished and has everything it needs.
Our family of 4 plus mother-in-law just returned from our wonderful holiday in Yves' chalet. The chalet was beautiful and well looked after, very clean, well stocked and winterly cosy. The hosts 'housekeeper' was very friendly and highly reliable and even came by later in the evening to change some light bulbs. Location, chalet and host highly recommended. We would definitely like to return.
Great location, great house, great everything.
Actually didn't want to write a review to leave this gem hidden...
Our family of 6 had such a great stay at Yves' place. The chalet is charming, warm and clean with a lovely atmosphere for relaxing after a day's skiing. The location is convenient, secluded and quiet, but still in close proximity to the lifts and within easy bus access to town. Although there was a slight language barrier with our host due to our mediocre French, we still managed to communicate about all the important parts of the house. Thank you Yves for a great stay.

Lovely traditional swiss chalet on the northern outskirts of Verbier with plenty of living space and very comfortable beds. We were delighted to have chosen this chalet.
Lovely charming Chalet north of the village. Buses work moderately so experience would be even better with a car. Great hosts and a very warm wonderful comfortable stay. Is was a pleasure.
I am reluctant to let the secret out - but this is exactly the type of chalet that you would dream up for a trip to the Swiss Alps. It is charming, cozy and tastefully decorated with antiques and mementos. The furniture and beds are comfortable and the chalet is more than well equipped (including firewood!). There are numerous options to eat and enjoy coffee outside on each of the three floors, and the kitchen was ideal for family dinners each night. The chalet is located very close to the ski/luge slopes. We had a great time, we couldn't believe our luck when we arrived. We felt privileged to rent this little gem.
Dear Yves and Marie-Helene, we really appreciated our stay in your cosy and charming chalet. One very positiv surprise were the location of the chalet. On the web site were the illustration of the location far down in the village, but the reality were the opposit - at the top of the village with a ski in ski out location. Great!
What else to say about this little haven of peace and authenticity. You instantly feel comfortable in this chalet, that has a soul. From what I can tell, it is a hidden gem amongst all the modern chalets of the station. I will definitely try to come back!
