3 bedroom traditional wooden chalet,with views of mountains and ski slopes
I have been a creative professional for my entire career, both as a teacher and designer/maker. I divide my time between Switzerland and London where I have a studio. I have a particular interest in gardening, micro electronics and art and design.
Why Alan chose Château-d'Oex
Chalet Dijla has a special significance for me, having been in my family for several decades. It holds wonderful memories of Christmas and New Year celebrations with family and friends.
What makes this Chalet unique
Visitors to the chalet enjoy the extraordinary weather that defines mountain life - snow, sun and lovely skies. In every season, visitors are rewarded by something special. Spring flowers. Summer walks. Autumn skies and Winter sports. Many lovely cheeses are produced locally from myriad dairy farms. The main fromageries are open to tourists who can see how the cheeses are produced and enjoy tasting opportunities. These local cheeses are bound to form a large part of your diet when you are here. There are many walking routes and off-road mountain bike tracks as well as hot springs, galleries, museums and events. Montreux and Vevey are easily accessible. Both towns have their own distinctive attractions. For instance, the Jazz Festival takes place in Montreux in the summer and the Charlie Chaplin Museum is a 'must see' attraction in Vevey. Chocolate tours are too many to mention and are extremely popular. But above all, sitting on the terrace outside the chalet looking out towards the mountains on a clear starry night is bliss!
