A happy home with an even brighter outlook

Family-friendly holiday home in Vouvry with water park
This former Swiss border patrol building is a communal monument. Our house is located at the starting point to some of the best walks in Switzerland (according to Lonely Planet). Explore the mountain and you will find the emerald waters of Lac Tanay. In the winter your family can enjoy the 250-meter long bunny hill ski slope which is located just 100 meters away from our home.

I think "absolutely quaint" is the best description for your stay.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful chalet in the mountains
Extremely well equipped and charming upper floor chalet. Peaceful, with a stunning view of the valley. Easy and rapid communication with the owner, Ben. Perfect location for the hike up to Lake Taney, which is well worth the steep incline! We had a lovely couple of days exploring the region with our two children and dog. Highly recommended.

5/5 Excellent

Great place to recharge
Beautiful place that offered my family of 6 a chance to relax in the midst of a whirlwind vacation. Clean and comfortable the kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. Clear directions and communication throughout the booking process.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely time in a beautiful remote location
We stayed In this great bungalow for 3 nights. It is about 30 minutes from Chillion Castle and an hour from Lausanne. It sits above the town of Vevry on a very twisty road. We loved the remoteness of this place. It was very beautiful and quiet. There were 4 of us staying and it was perfect. It would be rather crowded if 6 were staying because there isn't a second bathroom. The cooking facilities were great. We slept very well and were very comfortable. Thank you for a lovely visit...

5/5 Excellent

Cute, clean Apartment!
My family (two adults and two kids) stayed here for three nights and very much enjoyed our time here. There are two bedrooms and a loft (another bedroom) but we used the main bedrooms. The apartment was very well kept and very clean! The kitchen is nicely equipped. Ben and Jane made sure we had everything we needed and made suggestions for our stay. The hike up to Lake Taney is right next to the house- it's a great hike to an amazing lake! If we are ever in the neighborhood again we will make sure to stay again.

5/5 Excellent

Nice apartment, stunning views
The apartment is located in the mountains of Vouvry and has a stunning view down the valley. The kittchen is well equipped and the beds are very comfy. Ben, the host, is very supportive and always there to answer any questions one might have. We totally enjoyed our stay.
