Situated between Lake Geneva and Gstaad, at an altitude of 1200m, the unspoilt alpine country village of Les Diablerets, with its strong retention of Swiss flavour and majestic summits, is a charming family resort set amid spectacular mountain scenery. Since 2003 the village has borne the Families welcome label, a Swiss Tourism Federation award, thanks to its child friendly programme of events and infrastructure to meet the needs of the youngsters.
For sports fans and adrenaline junkies look no further! Three ski resorts on your doorstep, golf only 14km away and a host of other activities to keep everyone amused. In winter, Les Diablerets comes into its own. It has a variety of terrain and challenges from nursery to nerve racking, with truly something for everybody. New facilities on the glacier have greatly improved the scope there, and make the available skiing terrain bigger and better. Lifts right from the town centre will transport you to the slopes, which in turn have a network of higher lifts to whisk you around once you are in the system.
Other than skiing and snowboarding, well into the early summer on the Glacier, the numerous beautiful landscapes of the Valley offer 250km of hiking and biking trails at both high and medium altitudes, for families, keen ramblers or just for those that want to go for a quiet walk. As well as an outdoor swimming pool complete with flume and separate children's pool, there are facilities to play tennis, boating (Retaud Lake), fishing, canyoning, hydro speed, paragliding, dirt monster biking (a cross between mountain biking and motorcycling), tyrolienne traversing or the Indiana fun obstacle course and fixed rope. to finish the day.
