ISM's home in Switzerland is the Grand Chalet in Leysin.
Situated above the village of Leysin, the Grand Chalet offers
outstanding, uninterrupted views across the Rhone Valley and to the Mt
Blanc Massif beyond. The Bonelli Family has managed the Hotel since 1972. The hotel has been home to ISM's operations in Leysin for over 20 years. Husband and wife Jacky and Lysiane Bonelli now run the hotel and welcome ISM clients and their families throughout the year.
The hotel is a rustic style Swiss chalet, with very traditional roots, offering a warm welcome and comfortable accommodation in a friendly family atmosphere. The newly renovated rooms are bright and spacious and the kitchen serves delicious home cooked food which is freshly prepared from locally sourced produce.
Typically clients arrive
the day their course starts and have time to settle in to their rooms
which are allocated on a twin or very occasionally triple share basis. If you would prefer a single
room, this can be arranged, subject to availability, for a supplement. Please contact the ISM office to arrange this. Very occasionally ISM exceeds its room allocation at the hotel and uses nearby accommodation of a similar standard with meals still being taken at the Grand Chalet.
You can check in from 2pm onwards on the day of arrival and the hotel serves evening meals from 6pm onwards. Unless a special arrangement has been made, all ISM courses start with a welcome drink and introductions at 6.45pm where you'll meet your ISM Guide and chat through the week ahead. After this you'll normally have dinner as a group at around 7.30pm.
