“We cannot thank Lally and Richard enough for our wonderful and very special extended stay at their beautiful home 'Le Petit Chalet'. This review is very belated for which I apologise as I would recommend anyone to stay here. Everything is perfect! The chalet is extremely comfortable, spacious and well-equipped and the location is unique. The view of the surrounding mountains is truly spectacular and just as amazing every day. Richard was very helpful in all his communications and we greatly appreciated his tips on hikes and places to visit. We were fortunate enough to really get to know the chalet - with its cosy fireplace, great selection of games and sunny patio,, as well as the beautiful surrounding areas ideal for skiing or hiking - as we ended up spending lock down there thanks to Richard and Lally's incredible kindness. We saw the seasons change and discovered a very special part of the world. What could have been a tough time ended up being a very memorable and happy one for which we will always be very grateful.”

“We had a fantastic time at Richard's ski chalet. The place was outstanding, the views were fabulous, and we loved every single minute of our stay. We were given very clear instructions to get to the home, as well as information of the local area, which were all very helpful. It was such a wonderful experience for us, and we are very pleased with our home swap.”
“Richard an Lally, were excellent communicators. We were thrilled to be able to meet them upon their arrival in CapeTown. We arrived in Gryon with 3 exhausted little children to the most incredible welcome. Toys arranged from the front door to the lounge, had our grandchildren enthralled. The thoughtful,welcome food pack was super. We felt instantly at home. The home is beautifully appointed with everything one could have needed, and more. With views from ever window, there was never a moment, without being awe struck. From very early in the morning, the lights across the valley twinkled, as we sipped mugs of Swiss hot chocolate. The skiing, was way more than our young adults had hoped for. They were able to ski everyday. Gordon and I loved wandering around the villages nearby. We enjoyed long leisurely evenings around the log fire. We had one of the most incredible experiences, ever, we would love to be able return to this lovely, lovely place. Thank you very much, Richard and Lally. ”
“We had 8 relaxing days at Richard’ s chalet. After two months of our driving trip crisscrossing Europe on home exchanges we planed to end our summer trip at Richard’s chalet in a small ski town of Gryon. What a hidden gem we have discovered. The views were absolutely breathtaking. Any day we stay in we ended up having our breakfast, lunch and dinner on the outside table with spectacular views in front of us. The chalet is very tastefully decorated and spacious. Richard was amazing host, he was always concerned and make sure our stay was smooth and comfortable. Thank you Richard for sharing your gem with us. We would love to get a chance to return. ”
