Guestbook comments from the owner

We could not believe how well appointed, pleasant and comfortable the whole complex was and felt we wanted for nothing. Thank you so much for our week’s stay. As it happens the Glacier was fine with a helpful mini dump of snow arriving mid week – in essence we had a great trip!

Très joli appartement

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été charmé par ce joli appartement très accueillant et chaleureux. Nous l'avons trouvé propre et meublé avec gout. Nous sommes restés trois nuits avec nos deux enfants. L'endroit est idéal, calme et bien situé. Le supermarché et la pharmacie sont à deux pas. Il y a un mini-golf, des tennis et de très belles balades à faire.

Les directives concernant notre arrivée n'étaient juste pas très claires mais la propriétaire Abi a très rapidement répondu à chacune de nos questions. Nous conseillons cet endroit et y retournerons surement à la prochaine occasion.

The best thing about my stay.

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week here at Abi's apartment and really couldn't fault it. Arriving by the fantastic little mountain train after a beautiful journey from Geneva airport, her colleague Sloba was waiting to greet me and show me round. The apartment was warm, comfortable, well-equipped, and everything worked! I particularly liked the fireplace (with an initial supply of logs, more available at the Co-op 100 yards away) and the constant fast supply of hot water. The place was also completely peaceful: I never heard a sound from any other apartment on the small complex during my stay. I also enjoyed the swimming pool (which I never had to share) and the sauna (ditto).

As mentioned by other reviewers, the location is perfect: opposite the little station (no noise) and the ski bus stop, supermarket 1 minute's walk which is really handy for fetching bread in the morning, and close enough to the ski lifts to walk there if you feel so inclined. And if the snow is plentiful you can almost ski back to it from the Meilleret side.

So I would certainly recommend this apartment. Abi is very helpful and efficient and provides excellent information. In all honesty, if I were to return it would be in the summer: the area is beautiful and looks ideal for walking. As a ski resort, though, Les Diablerets needs to heave itself into the 21st century (or even the late 20th!).

The best choice of my trip

  • 4 of 5

This place is incredible. Abi (the Owner) is extremely accommodating, and her place is gorgeous. If you are looking to stay in the area, you would be a fool not to rent this location. I design homes for a living, and I even loved the floor plan! Great for entertaining a small group of friends, or perfect for a night in with a loved one. I am not kidding when I say that renting this chalet was the best decision of my entire trip. It really was. There is a gorgeous pool and sauna on site, adequate laundry, and internet available too. The location is perfect. As soon as you get off the train, angle cross the road to the left and you there! It is in the heart of everything there. I have now staying in hotels and chalets in Les Diablerets- the price is almost the same, but you get WAY more for your dollar here. Everything is modern inside, and really quaint. I felt like I was at home. Books, games, tv, dishwasher, great oven and cooktop, great fridge, modern bathroom, comfortable beds, awesome interior decorating... do I need to say more? If you are going to the area, get this place before someone else does! And take good care of it, because I hope one day to return too! Thanks Abi. Thanks Sloba. Thanks Sloba's Son!

Wonderful apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

we spend conciderable time researching where to go skiing during the feb half term and decided eventurally on Les Diablerets - then came the task of where to stay - we knew we wanted to have access to the outside for the children to play and also be in the heart of the village - we came accross this lovely apartment and booked it up early - les diablerets is an expensive place to stay and we not only picked this apartment due to the cost but also its location and basically it looked like it would have everything we needed

I have to say that les diablerets was a great choice of resorts, there were no queues at the slopes at all, which is so rare in europe in the feb half term, the village itself is charming and has everything you need. The apartment forms part of several apartments just behind the main street and right oposite the trainstation - the location was just fab

there is underground parking which is great, however, is was a problem when trying to get out as its up a steep slope and there was so much snow and ice at the top that we could not get out without chains on - also the parking space is really really tight but still great to have someone inside to park the car - there is also ski lockers for each apartment so you can just dump everything in those rather than taking them all the way up to the apartment - there is also a communial pool with sauna that you access through the underground car park, this was great and the kids loved it, there is also launderette facilities there too

the apartment itself was large and light, the furnishings were are very high standard and the place was spotlessly clean - we found it a bit too hot in there as the double glazing etc is very effeciant - the apartment is a really good size with plenty of room for a family of 4 or 5 - the only thing to say with a silght negative note is that there was not enough cooking equiptment and they could do with a few more plates, cups etc, plenty enough for one sitting but you have to then wash everything up for the next meal - this is the only negative thing I can say about the apartment and its nothing major either

we loved les diablerets and we loved the apartment and we would definately go back there and highly recommend it to everyone

Just a lovely stay !!

  • 5 of 5

We so much enjoyed this lovely appartment that is well located on the opposite site of the tiny Diablerets station. We didn't miss a thing in the (very stylish and nice) kitchen, we slept super - dooper well in our beds, we enjoyed Sauna and Pool every day, and watched the ski slopes from the living room every morning just so we were sure that another beautiful skiing day was ahead of us! 5 min walk to the slopes that offer amazing views on Mont-Blanc and even on lake Geneva, 10 min drive to the Glacier with a couple of fantastic slopes, and again the views (!!!). Les Diablerets is just nice and has everything one needs - shopping at the COOP (1 min walk from the appartment) is perfect, GREAT traditional dishes in various locations in walking distance. Strong recommendation for this lovely place :)) !
