Cuckoo is a luxury chalet in the unspoilt Swiss farming village of Ayer in the Val d'Anniviers. Think Heidie and Narnia. Ten minutes drive from the ski resorts of St Luc, Grimentz or Zinal. Ideal for a summer or winter holiday.

Downstairs there is a spacious living room with kitchen and views from the large windows of the tumbling adjacent stream.

This chalet was the perfect choice for our walking holiday in the Swiss Alps. The location is amazing, next to a mountain stream, high on the hillside with incredible views across the valley. The Val d'Anniviers is breathtakingly beautiful, with numerous excellent, well-marked walking trails....More

Great place to stay. Has everything required in the kitchen. Wood burning stove as an extra over the under floor heating makes it really cosy. Woodland walks out the back door and very uncrowded ski slopes 10 minutes away.
