About this listing
Beautiful Canadian home on the lake. 2 full chalets/condos each with 2 bedrooms. Rented together (inside staircase) or separately, they are the perfect place to relax in the Laurentians. Accomodates (max) 8 adults and 4 children.
This home is known as one of the most beautiful spots in Val-David.
Please note that the PRICE in this ad is for rental of the 2 units TOGETHER.
These two condo's were fully renovated in 2010 and are equipped with everything you need to feel right at home (dishwasher, washer, dryer, flat screen tv, fireplace, high-speed wifi, cable, dvd, etc).
The upper unit (Le Luzern) has 2 very large bedrooms (queen) with an additional single bunk bed in one bedroom. It has 3 full bathrooms, a large kitchen and a beautiful stone fireplace (wood burning). There is a 3-season sun-room off the dining area with beautiful lake views.
The lower unit (Le Zermatt) spans the lake level of the duplex and has 2 large bedrooms (queen beds) with a pull-out queen sofa-bed in the spacious living room. It has an electric fireplace in the living room which gives off a nice heat. Just next to the waters edge, you can walk out directly onto your covered patio just in front of the lake.
The units may be rented separately (sound-proofing is very good between the 2 units, but NOT appropriate for parties/loud music) or together for a larger group. When rented together, there is an interior staircase between the two units that can be unlocked to make one large chalet. Please see our other listings if you wish to rent each chalet separately.
These 2 condo-apartments are a part of the Swiss Village Cottage Resort (winner of the Grand Prize for Tourism Laurentians in 2010 & 2011) in the Laurentian village of Val-David.
You have access to the whole chalet/condo duplex (2 units) as well as our entire site.
You'll enjoy the pool, hot-tub (year round) and lake as well as our pedal boats for free in the warmer months. We also have a few bikes (all ages) for rent.
We have a small common area, under chalet 3 (le Davos) where you will find a washer/dryer, extensive dvd collection (over 100 options), small library and jigsaw puzzles. All are available for you to use/borrow free of charge.
You will also receive a free pass to the Regional Park where you can enjoy different sports and activities depending on the season (walking, biking, rock climbing($), bird watching, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, sledding and more.) Bring your own equipment or rent it at the Regional park which is right next door.
In summer take out a pedal boat on the lake, fish, swim in the pool, relax in the hot tub, explore the Regional Park (hiking, biking, rock climbing), and don't forget the little village of Val-David (ice cream, restaurants, market, grocery, etc) which is just a 5 minute walk.
In winter our chalets are ski in, ski out! Over 160km of groomed cross-country ski trails, 30km of snowshoeing trails (dogs welcome for snowshoeing!), 2 sledding runs, 3 skating rinks and the cute little village of Val-David...all just steps from our chalets. Downhill skiing is just 2km away.

Val-David is a quaint little artists village that is perfectly located 80km north of Montréal, 120km east of Ottawa and 36km south of Mont-Tremblant. Our chalets are ideally located between a lake ( Lac de la Sapinière ), a 500 hectare forested regional park and the heart of Val-David. (3-5 minute walk)
In fact, everything you need is within walking distance in Val-David: Grocery Store, health food store, drop-in yoga centre, ATM, restaurants, bars, cafés, boutiques, an art gallery park, mountains, lake, bike path and more. There is a lot to see and do in Val-David, year round.
Our beautiful village is a hub for great art and music festivals and our farmers market is renowned as one of the best open air market in Quebec. (every Saturday from May 28th to October 8th from 9-1pm and a few other special dates throughout the year.)

In 2006, while working as an Engineer in Montreal, I fell in love with the Village Suisse Cottage Resort. We found out it was for sale, scraped together the down payment and purchased the resort! Now 10 years later, this is our full-time life. We have 9 rental chalets, a reception, a toy store and a wonderful, loyal clientele. When we are not off traveling ourselves, my husband, my children and I live just 1km away from the Village Suisse and are on site nearly every day!
