Whitepods is something out of this world. Luxurious, modern, eco-friendly and a place at one with nature. The pods are tastefully furnished. A comfortable king sized bed, wood burner, full bathroom and shower (with eco-friendly toiletries), a mezzanine level for children and a terrace. A full Swiss breakfast is served at the chalet moments from the pods. This chalet also... More

It is romantic adventure in the same time. New experience to stay in such strange and nice pod. Staff is helpful. Food is tasty. We stayed 2 days only. We did nothing except setting in the terrace of the pod but we really enjoyed. The hard part to us was to walk for 15 minutes up to the mountain to... More

What a special experience staying at the whitepods during the summer, spectacular views, crisp air, great food, peace and quiet, and surrounded by nature. We stayed here for 2 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. It’s not camping at all, you have everything a luxury hotel offers…minus the room service. Our friends booked it for us so we...

My family and I arrived in the the Whitepod after a long trip from the UK. We were nicely welcomed by the staff at the Cerniers chalets. We were given small packs with head lights binoculars and a map of the area. We had a 30 minute walk up with the luggage so I realised it is important to pack... More

My wife and I finished our honeymoon at Whitepod in Les Cerniers, and what a finish it was. We were privileged to have the place to ourselves on the first night before the tourist season kicked off the following day, so we took the opportunity to enjoy the pod service platter for dinner which was a nice selection of local...

This is a fantastic location for a relaxing retreat. We stayed for 3 days and came back completely relaxed and refreshed. The food is amazing and the accommodation is perfect.We lit the fire and went to sleep looking out over the valley ate the lights in the villages twinkling below us. As my youngest son put it, even Nan would... More

From check in to check out I cannot fault Whitepod It's a truly amazing place to stay. After checking in and given full instructions of how to get to the pod and the facilities we set off on the 15 min walk to pod 12. Each one has it's own outdoor seating area and inside is very well appointed and... More

In February 2014 we visited the Whitepod. It was a surprise from my (now) fiance who asked to marry me in pod No. 10! Up to now the best day of my life. The view from Pod no. 10 was great on one side the lake of Geneva and on the other hand the white mountains. The service was amazing... More

The most amazing experience - the pictures do not do it justice!!! Everything was outstanding! Even if you cant afford the most expensive activities it is so nice to sit on your private deck and read a book. We did the dog hiking which was great fun and gave us a one on one with the dogs. There's also free... More
