Holiday Rental House
Our traditional-style, wooden, detached chalet has five bedrooms, sleeping up to 9 guests, and has the luxury of a private, indoor heated swimming pool (30ft x 10ft) and large sauna. The chalet enjoys lovely views and is the ideal base for your Swiss holiday, offering an atmosphere of relaxation and plenty of opportunity for all seasons recreation or touring. This region is richly historical and spectacularly beautiful, sprinkled with idyllic towns and villages. The chalet is on two floors with the bedrooms on the lower ground floor. On the upper floor is the entrance hall. This leads to the small, compact but very well equipped kitchen (oven, hob, microwave, integrated fridge-freezer, integrated dishwasher, pots, pans, crockery, cutlery etc etc).

About the neighbourhood
About 10km away is the market town of Bulle, also with a chateau at its centre, providing all the normal amenities of a small Swiss town, together with a folk museum, art gallery and a local market on Thursday mornings. To the east the Jaun Pass, the most mountainous in the Fribourg Alps, leads to the Jungfrau and Interlaken regions in the Bernese Oberland. To the south east lies Gstaad and Chateau d'Oex, favoured by the rich jet-set, and good for skiing, walking, or taking in the beautiful scenery. Bordering Lake Geneva are the towns of Vevey, home to Charlie Chaplin, Montreux, famous for the jazz and film festivals, Lausanne and Geneva. To the north are the ancient towns of Fribourg, Murten, Basle, and the Swiss capital, Berne. The area is great for those into adventure sports such as canyoning, paragliding, and mountain biking.
How to get there
Air: The nearest airport is Geneva or Bern. From there you can either hire a car (1.5 hours or 1 hour respectively) or there is a regular train service from Geneva to Gruyeres, and then take a taxi or bus 5km to the chalet. Road: The chalet is about 1 1/2 hours from Geneva and situated just off the N12 motorway near the town of Bulle and the medieval village of Gruyeres.
