Interior of a Swiss Chalet

The end of the ski season has sadly arrived, with the rise of temperatures and  the melting of the already scarce snow. It has however brought back the sun and its nice terrace lunches. It was on one of those days, during my last trip to Switzerland in March, that I took some pictures of a beautiful typical chalet. Set in the lovely village of Champéry, in the Valais region, it is a convenient 1hour and 15 min drive from Geneva. A blessing for the lucky Swiss people who have adopted it as their week-end retreat. This gorgeous chalet was decorated very much in keeping with the traditional style of Swiss mountain abodes, but with a slight international twist. The fair wood, comfortable furniture and great features such as the wood burner bring warmth and cosiness, while personal souvenirs such as the Russian porcelain wall lamps give the chalet a very intimate feel. A big thanks to Christine and Diego, the wonderful hosts who allowed me to take those pictures.
