Ideas for the Summer Season
Take a trip from Gryon to Betraye on the funicular railway then cycle downhill 20kms to Bex (several routes possible) through the most stunning scenery.
Play Golf at one of 3 courses between lakes and mountain including the spectacular Villars 18 hole Mountain Course which overlooks Mont Blanc.
WALK AND HIKE
Hike through the Alpine forests and mountain streams at Le Plan and Solalex. Both areas are beautiful.
Take lunch on one of the elegant paddle streamers on Lake Leman.
ESCAPE TO THE PAST
Spend an evening at the ancient mountain refuge at Taveyanne (1189ad). Here you will find only gas light and candles and you will cook your food over hot coals...watch out for the wild Lynx cats that roam!
Ski at 3,000 metres or try Europes highest roller coaster also on the Glacier.
Take a day trip to Gruyere, Geneva, Bern or nearby Gstaad.
Take in the peace and the views from the Chalet. You will never tire of the view as the light constantly changes the mood… for who appreciate nature and the mountain environment it’s a special place to be.
