Walking through the beautiful village of Leysin made me realize what an absolute sensory treat it is! Almost every quaint wooden cottage has its own little garden plot in the backyard. Most windows are decorated with hanging pots holding geraniums and other colourful flowers. Needless to say, there are also beautifully tended backyards where families grow their own vegetables and fruits.Leysin is very conducive to outdoor activities and water sports all year round. With astounding views of the Alps and the Rhone valley all around, teamed with fresh, pure mountain air, I decided to explore some of the walking trails soon to make the start of my stay here extra special.The resort was well located in lower Leysin, a short hop from shops and restaurants and also quite close to the village train station. The Chalet had about 10–15 cute apartments—some studios, some one or two-bedroom apartments.
