About this listing
Colina is centrally located to many important features of Leysin's ski resort amenities: Very convenient to the Telecabin access to the ski slopes, the sporting center for the pool, the fitness center, indoor tennis and squash, and the Migro shopping center, etc. Colina is so popular because it is so convenient to the ski slopes and saves time and energy during your weekly ski vacation. Take the hassle out of your ski experience. Rent from us. And, we are cost-effective, too.
This unit is on the top floor of the Colina Apartment. The views are spectacular! You can enjoy the whole Swiss experience for your entire stay. The unit is about 75 square meters. Simply furnished, but great ski location! There is an elevator to the fifth-floor location. In an emergency, use the stairs to exit the building.
You have access to the whole unit. Other renters will not occupy the unit as you rent the whole apartment. Usually, you will be met upon your arrival and the entry into the unit will be thoroughly explained. However, we also have a lockbox system for easy access on your own when there are many changes to rental units occurring at the same time. Thank you for your understanding if we ask you to check-in on your own. We will meet you at some point during the rental to introduce ourselves. Please do not follow the directions or try to find the unit on your own...the best procedure is to contact the managers (Jay and Nazuna) from Aigle and then he will arrange to meet you upon your arrival in Leysin. This is the most convenient way to find the unit as there is a one-way street in front of the Colina that is hard to access. However, those who have rented from us before often prefer to check-in on their own.
