Le Mélèze is a beautiful 18th century chalet in Val d'Illiez in the Portes de Soleil area, ideal for hiking, mountainbiking in summer and skiing in winter (near Champéry, Champoussin). Its a 5 minute walk from Thermes Parc relaxing thermal baths.
This is our home in the mountains, chalet Le Mélèze. We love it there, and so do many others who have been visiting our place for more than 10 years. As we cannot always be there ourselves we are looking to share it and let others also enjoy it. Our renters see Le Meléze as their own home.
The chalet is built in the 1800’s, and has been renovated in the 1960’s and 1980’s. It’s a humble place, but very comfortable and very quiet. It’s well heated, has a large living room with a lovely fireplace (with wood available), 6 bedrooms (10 adults, 1 child and 2 baby beds) and 2 bathrooms (shower and bath). It also has a simple but cosy kitchen where you can eat with 10. All the equipment is there to cook (including bread- and various kitchen machines), as well as an extensive collection of cooking-musts.
It’s really as if you are at home, or better... If the weather is not so good, take a nice rest on the couch under the veranda, or walk 10 minutes to the nearby thermal baths ((URL HIDDEN) In winter time, you are a 10 - 15 minute drive away from Champéry, Les Crosets or Champoussin, giving you access to the beautiful Portes du Soleil ski-area (650km of pistes).
Interaction with guests
We leave the house to our guests as if its they're own home. We ask our guests to bring their own linnen and clean themselves.
Other things to note
If you visit us in spring or autumn you may see deer walk past our chalet! In summer if you're sleeping with the windows open you'll hear the river in the valley and of course the Swiss cowbells... Best way to relax!
Our guests feel at home and treat our chalet like its their own. We are happy to receive pets but would like to agree this in advance. For smoking we have a wonderful, comfortable veranda for that (outside).
