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

I stayed at Whitepod with my girlfriend for one night, 19th February 2014. The communication with staff pre-visit was exceptional, they were willing to cater to my every need and my numerous plan changes which I was most grateful for. We arrived at Aigle station to a taxi driver that a)spoke no English b) didn't know where Whitepod was. A... More

The personel was extremely friendly and we had a very warm welcome. The pod was superbly decorated and very comfortable. We enjoyed the snowshoe plus other activities like dog-sledging and ski. In the morning we woke up in an exceptional view over the snow on facing mountains plus over the Geneva lake further away. Will defo go back again!

Excepcional experience. For me, coming from a tropical country it was the best possible first meeting with the snow. The Pods are a little distant from the village and they are a mix of camping and luxury, so you are very close to nature. The breakfest is one of the high points, with excelent swiss cheeses and breads. The restaurant... More

The Pod is a definitely interesting concept, and the local is very suitable for this type of camp. The staff is extremely friendly,and are organised with a set of instructions to go with the accommodation. The overall price could be somewhat lower but given the originality of the idea, the place is well worth visiting!

The Pods are very comfortable and very romantic - best if you know how to handle the fire in the chimney, else ensure to get good instructions to avoid the fire alarm to go off during the night ;-) The view over the mountains is stunning! The staff at reception is extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet is tasty. The... More
