I am very happy to buy locally and would prefer this if I can get any company to answer my emails and offer to sell me one that looks like one. I am trying Flammorama and another company in Switzerland and have yet to hear back from them.
I will persevere as I need this for December and time it ticking.
Thank you for all your help everyone!
Do these traders have physical shops or showrooms you can visit? Looking at your stove in the flesh might be better than buying it based soley on pictures you saw on the Internet.

I have the impression that traders in Switzerland, especially of the older generation, don't really do email.

How do you know if it is compatible with Swiss Law what are the questions I need to ask?
did you ask your architect/fitter yet?

Thank you for your reply. I didn't explain properly, I want to buy a new wood burning stove in Switzerland ideally but in a traditional style. the only ones I can find are ultra modern and won't fit into the ancient chalet.
two bonus's for buying in the UK (the exchange rate!) and I get what I want.
The problem is the architect isn't happy as even with a New STove from the UK the TIS ( whatever that is ) won't get signed off... if it doesn't get signed off what are the consequences?
thank you for your response

thank you can you give me a website, I am in the UK at the moment and struggling to find websites....
its really hard I keep getting addresses for wood-pellets. etc...


Same here: eventually we went for a Jotul F400 in off white. We went to a place where they fitted fireplaces in Geneva, but told them this is what we want, they ordered it and set it all up: http://jotul.com/us/products/stoves

Re: Looking for a Traditional Wood-Burning Stove

Yes I want to see it before I buy but Switzerland is a big place I need to know where to visit first so I don't waste a flight and trains etc. Geneva would be the best as that is where I fly into to visit my own place so ideally looking for stove shops with an extensive range of wood burners in geneva

They only had modern stuff in their showroom. Not for us. But a neighbour of mine had a Jotul F500, and we knew this was the stuff we were after.

Re: Looking for a Traditional Wood-Burning Stove

If you gave us a location in VAud, it would be easier to try and help.

OK - here is a firm in Aigle. Why not tell them you are looking for something traditional:

rue du Bourg 3
1860 Aigle

Re: Looking for a Traditional Wood-Burning Stove

Googling poele a bois geneve brings up several results, including this list from yellow pages; https://yellow.local.ch/fr/q/Gen%C3%...o%C3%AAle.html

Doing the same but with your exact location (Lausanne might be a nearer option for you), should bring up at least as many as Geneva.
And have you considered just across the border into France? Again where will depend on which side of Vaud and/or Geneva you are, but Annemasse, Bellegarde, etc. all have showrooms for this kind of thing.... and I've seen a few in Leroy Merlin and Bricomarche too!

Re: Looking for a Traditional Wood-Burning Stove

Something to be aware of: under Swiss regulations, your stove pipe must have a trap door with it, whereas in France it's not compulsory. That's how we discovered we could not get a white pipe with a white stove because the white pipes were built without a trap door.
