We spent a week here in the middle of August with our two young teenage boys. The location is great, set just above the pretty mountain town of Gryon. We have visited before in the Winter but were overwhelmed with the beauty of the area in the summer. Gemma and Merlin who run the chalet are both keen climbers, walkers... More

This hostel feels more like a casual mountain retreat. The highlight is the big yard out back with stunning mountain views, lounge chairs and hammock, picnic tables, and a fire pit to keep you warm at night. The staff are really friendly and will give you suggestions on things to do. Only small downsides are not many wall outlets, and... More

True to everyone else's word, Chalet Martin is worth the visit. The couple who run the place, Merlin and Jemma, are truly down-to-earth and lovely people, and it was a pleasure to get to know them a little bit during our stay.

This chalet offered classic swiss chalet atmosphere with the building being built in 1909. The views we're amazing no matter where you stood. More importantly though, the friendly atmosphere at Chalet Martin is exceptional. I was warmly greeted and had such an enjoyable trip interacting with the owners, workers, and fellow travlers!

Chalet Martin is a very charming, and relaxed hostel (guest-house style), with stunning views and a very cool and welcoming young family! The double room (without bathroom), has a lovely little deck with a table a chairs, overlooking the mountains, that makes for the perfect spot to relax post-hiking trip in Villars (and swimming in summer time). Merlin and Gemma... More

The views are world-class... More

Chalet Martin is a hidden gem. It's a beautiful spot, way up in the mountains, surrounded by incredible hiking, climbing and skiing. The owners, Merlin and Gemma, made us feel welcome from the first moment we arrived. Merlin even drove us out to a crag as soon as we'd unpacked! The next day, they all hiked up with us to... More
