The Swiss Alps region
A wonderful lakeside and mountain climate, come here for the sunshine, the pure mountain air, the peace and natural beauty, culture and friendliness of the local population.
The whole Lake Geneva area, including France, has so many activities, cultures and languages to choose from, and is a holiday dream land. And there is easy access to other alpine, valley and lake regions including high altitude glaciers.
Regular rail and bus access without a car. Gryon is 14 km / 20 minutes by car above the valley. Down in the valley : Chillon and Aigle castles, Bex salt mines, thermal baths, golf-courses, nature reserves, vineyards, amusement and aquatic parks, lake Geneva paddle steamers, Europe' biggest steam model railway park, the world famous Montreux Jazz festival, International art galleries, other ski stations and mountain rack and museums, railways, aerodrome for altitude gliding.
Villars is a winter ski resort and in summer a spectacular holiday destination in the Swiss Alps. Located in the Lake Geneva tourist region of Switzerland so very convenient for Geneva airport and the lakeside towns of Lausanne and Montreux.
Gryon is a tranquil historic mountain village with narrow winding streets, lots of old world charm and traditional 18th century architecture.

"Very disappointed. A depressing and dingy chalet in serious need of an update."
This property is not as advertised. While the chalet has potential and a new balcony has been installed the rest of the property has not been maintained properly over time. The bathrooms are at least … More
This guest was out to try to get the rent discounted from the moment she arrived and complained about anything she could think of. She claims the bathrooms are at least 50 years old - that is older than the chalet! She threatened to report me for 'dangerous electrics' - it turned out she was referring to the lightening arrestor for the telephone line which had merely done its job, and is in any case the property of Swisscom. There was a problem with the boiler (now fixed) and some of the sockets in the living room (also fixed) The problem I had was that this occurred on New Years eve and I could not find nobody to come out on New Years day. To describe the chalet as depressing and dingy is quite ridiculous I have been renting this property for 7 years and this is the only complaint I have had.

"A pretty chalet but you need a car with small children"
This is a pretty, wooden chalet in a beautiful spot but it is isolated. Rooms were good, and it was well equipped - our children particularly had fun with the 3D glasses and the dvd! It was clean enou… More
I think it is wrong to describe our chalet as isolated - it is only 10 min walk from the station and Gryon village - secluded yes!
Since this review we have added the sun terrace which we believe is a wonderful enhancement to the chalet.

"Lovely chalet, lovely mountains"
Les Clochettes was just perfect for us - a group of friends looking to do some big walks in the surrounding mountains, but also take it easy as well. The chalet itself was simple but very reasonably priced - and I think great value for money for Switzerland. One of the great plus points was the enormous south facing terrace (complete with large outside table, nice swing seat and gas powered BBQ grill). There are also upstairs and downstairs balconies lining the whole south side, looking over the valley, and from which we witnessed, with glass of rose in hand, one of the best sunsets we'd ever seen - a very memorable moment! The village of Gyron itself is very pleasant. Its not a ski resort as such which makes it a lot quieter than I imagine some of the other places around can be - seems a lot less touristy. Its positioned on a small hill between the valley and the mountains proper, rather than in their heart, so to get deeper into te mountains it was really good to have a car - but saying that there is still some great stuff within reach without car - there is a cable car up high from the neighbouring village (20 min walk away), as well as of course the excellent mountain train which can take you up to the Bretaye lakes. (You can travel all day on the cable car and trains with a 10 CHF tourist pass). All in all it was a very memorable trip and a big thank you to Les Clochettes for being the perfect home.
