Further details indoors

The chalet is on two storeys and, as is usual for chalets, the bedrooms are on the lower floor and the living area on the upper floor. However, due to the chalet being built on a hill-side the entrance is on the upper floor.

On the upper floor has an open plan sitting and dining area leading onto a large balcony. The large fireplace provides a focal point for the sitting room, which is well furnished with large, comfortable sofas and a chair. There is a CD player, and a trunk full of games and puzzles, and plenty of books and magazines.

The kitchen also has patio doors to the balcony and a serving area to the dining area. The kitchen is fitted with a dishwasher, spacious fridge freezer, built-in oven and hob and is fully equipped with everything you will need for a self-catering holiday.

Also on this level is a large single bedroom, with a wardrobe and wash basin. This proves ideal for anyone unable to or not wishing to climb the stairs very often. There is also a separate toilet.

Stairs lead to the lower floor which has two double bedrooms and one twin bedroom. Each room has a wardrobe and storage space. The larger double room has French windows leading onto the patio. The other double room has a door to the indoor swimming pool. There is also a separate WC and bathroom with a twin basin and bath, with a shower attachment.

The pool room is reached from the lower floor. The heated pool is 9 x 3.6 metres and has an even depth of 1.5m, with ladder steps into the pool, and underwater lighting. The water is automatically heated, filtered and cleaned using an ultra-violet light system, fortunately meaning very little chlorine is needed. There is a pool-side sitting area and a large shower unit. Next to this, through the laundry room (with washing machine and tumble dryer) is the large three bedded sauna.

The 'studio', with its own separate entrance, has two sets of full size bunk-beds and an en suite washroom with WC. There is also a chest of drawers and a hi-fi. It is ideal for older children who want a little independence from parents – or vice versa!

Further details outdoors

The chalet and garden offer glorious views of the surrounding valley and mountains and is a wonderfully restful place. The private garden is bordered by trees and shrubs and there is a large patio with a table and benches for al fresco eating in summer and it is ideal for barbecues and sunbathing. La Taupiniere is level to the quiet cul-de-sac road and has a parking area for two cars.

Further details

The chalet is only rented as one unit.

The Swiss Alps region

Lau Taupiniere is located in a small mountain village with stunning views of the mountains above and the valley below. It is a wonderful area for walking, relaxing, and visiting the sites and sights (of which there are many).

There is plenty to do within an hour’s drive of the chalet, more than enough to keep you amused for the duration of your stay.

In the valley below Moléson lies the pretty, ancient, hill-top town of Gruyères. Encompassed by an outstanding chateau and ramparts, it boasts some very pleasant restaurants and boutiques.

Moleson sur Gruyeres

About 10km away is the market town of Bulle, also with a chateau at its centre, providing all the normal amenities of a small Swiss town, together with a folk museum, art gallery and a local market on Thursday mornings.

To the east the Jaun Pass, the most mountainous in the Fribourg Alps, leads to the Jungfrau and Interlaken regions in the Bernese Oberland. To the south east lies Gstaad and Chateau d'Oex, favoured by the rich jet-set, and good for skiing, walking, or taking in the beautiful scenery. Bordering Lake Geneva are the towns of Vevey, home to Charlie Chaplin, Montreux, famous for the jazz and film festivals, Lausanne and Geneva.

To the north are the ancient towns of Fribourg, Murten, Basle, and the Swiss capital, Berne.

The area is great for those into adventure sports such as canyoning, paragliding, and mountain biking.

"Perfect place for a long weekend with friends (also family friendly)!"

We spend this year's Easter weekend at la Taupinière with a group of friends from abroad. There is a bus that takes you to Moléson-Village, but it's much more convenient to get there by ca… More
