Re: Renting a small chalet in the mountains

View Post

I'd be interested to rent a small chalet in the mountains, something in the wild, far from any ski resort or road, within 1 - 2 hour walk from the nearest road. I don't need much space (2 persons), and am ok with spartan conditions, as long as we get a fireplace for winter time :-)

I'd like to rent the chalet for several periods of a few days in the course of the year.

I've been searching the holiday rentals web sites but they only seem to offer large chalets in ski resorts, which is totally the opposite of what I'd like.

Any ideas, ideally in VD, FR, VS ?


I know that some of the skiing resorts in Eastern Switzerland (like Lenzerheide, Laax, etc.) do keep lists of apartments for rent. You can get them through the tourist office I think - maybe some villages in the areas you're looking have the same?

Given your "low-comfort" specification you might even find it cheaper to buy a property. Check out
