Chalet in Chateau d'Oex, Nr. Gstaad, Lake Geneva / Vaud, Switzerland - Chalet with Spectacular Views
The mountain views from the balconies of the chalet are spectacular! It is set above the village so the view is of the village itself with the mountains behind. Skiing in winter and hiking in summer! Chateau d'Oex is a small French speaking village with a number of restaurants, a gourmet 'traiteur' (butcher), plus small grocery stores and a supermarket. It is about 10kms to world renowned Gstaad and 20km to picturesque Gruyere. A small train, the Panoramic Express, winds through the mountains to Montreux in one direction and Interlaken the other. There is an exceptional Balloon week at the end of January. One can watch cheese being made in a local Fromagerie or hike up mountains to see the cows in the High Alpage, in summer. Lots of great hiking off the beaten track! Downhill skiing in winter can include the whole Gstaad valley. Great cross country ski track. Open floor plan, Living / dining with fireplace and views, fully equipped kitchen. Comfortably furnished,cable TV, many DVDs.

Activity and Interests
Lake Geneva at Montreux is 45 mins away by MOB train and slightly longer by road.This has a promenade along the lake and boats go to various towns on the lake. One can go all the way to Geneva by boat and return by train.
Geneva airport is 2 hours away by car / train. Zurich is 3 hours away.
Chateau d'Oex can be reached by train from either airport. A car is recommended. However getting a local taxi to the chalet and arriving by train would save holdups on road due to snowfall in winter!
