Merry Christmas!….. wouldn’t we all just love to be sitting here tonight! No snow in Zurich here so we are imagining too!

Living in Switzerland, I often get asked about Swiss Chalets, which are admired throughout the world.   Zermatt, Gstaad, Verbier, Klosters, Arosa, St. Moritz, Cran Montana, Saas Fe ….. etc are great all year round but there is something about that chocolate box image of a Swiss Chalet in winter that really captures the imagination…..

Whether renovating an old chalet or building new, reclaimed wood and granite is highly sought after.  Old chalets, barns and outbuildings are deconstructed and carefully reused to create something which is quite unique and authentic. There is such a small supply now as people have always recycled old buildings in the mountains,  that the Swiss now have to look further afield.
