Guest Info :


Join us as we relax in the high alps outside of Geneva, Switzerland in September! The weather is beautiful that time of year. We’ll stay in a magnificent gingerbread chalet with beautiful mountain vistas, and enjoy meals provided by a private chef. We’ll hike beautiful alpine meadows and explore surrounding villages by train. We’ll arrive Geneva late morning Saturday. From there we’ll board the excellent Swiss train system for a short 2.5-hour ride along the edge of Lake Geneva and up into the high Alps. The chalet is located in the beautiful alpine village of Chateau D’Oex, on the train line from Geneva. Then for the next 7 days we’ll hike, eat together, and explore the surrounding villages in the area. We’ll have a variety of things to do each day which you can either choose to participate in or not.

Our all-inclusive means that everything – yes everything – is included. Just bring tip money and money for souvenirs.
