I and three friends stayed at Chalet Martin for four nights during the summer, where we were welcomed by friendly hosts, Merlin and Gemma. We had an incredible experience at Chalet Martin, which was just bursting with character: featuring a lovely living room (where we were encouraged to use the guitars); access to a kitchen, showers, and laundry room (not...

Very welcoming place with lots of comfortable communal space. You can cook, play guitar, talk to people, sit by the open fire... It was also nice we didn't have to check out early as it was raining that day and we could spent the day in the house. We stayed in the rustic room which has a beautiful view over...

One of the best chalet experiences that I've ever had. Did a Via Ferrata with Gemma and Merlin on the second day and it was in general an excellent weekend. I would highly recommend staying at Chalet Martin.

I love this chalet. It is clean and people are friendly (not just the staff, but everyone who stays and lives there). I stayed in a dorm, which had lots of space and clean comfy bedding. This is my second time staying here, and the location is so beautiful. Easy to access the ski hill on foot or via tram....

We got lost on our way to the chalet because of the car navigation. When calling the chalet to ask directions Merlin was very helpful and even met us in Gryon and brought us to the chalet. Overall it is very clean, the whole team was very accommodating. You can rent your ski here as well. We stayed in the...

Lovely accommodation and people in the chalet and Merlin and his team could not be more accommodating. We stayed in a double room which surpassed expections, you can hear noise from the kichen, however, this did not ditract from the stay as everyone was quiet by 11 pm.
