“Gorgeous chalet in a beautiful part of Switzerland”
Reviewed August 13, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This was my first summer stay in Ayer and I will come back again and again. Chalet Cuckoo was perfect; clean, tidy, well appointed and with comfortable beds.
We stayed here to race Sierre-Zinal nearby, and got in some good mountain training either side, as well as a beautiful walk near the Lac de Moiry near Grimentz.

“If you love mountains, you'll love Chalet Cuckoo”
Reviewed June 19, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We spent a week at Chalet Cuckoo. The chalet was spotlessly clean and well appointed with lots of storage. It was well equipped making it feel more like home than a holiday rental. You could just spend your time sitting on the deck in the sunshine enjoying the stunning views but we did lots of hiking. Val d'Anniviers is a great destination if you love the outdoors. You can walk right from the door. The owner was very helpful and sent us passes for the local area which included free bus travel throughout the valley. This allowed us to do longer walks and take a bus back. June is still 'off season' so not all shops, restaurants and cable cars were open yet but that meant we had the trails to our selves and the meadows were full of Alpine flowers. I'd definitely recommend Chalet Cuckoo, especially for those who like hiking in the Swiss mountains.

After a great trip to the Val D'annivers during the summer, we decided to return to Ayer for some winter activities. Chalet Cuckoo was a great place to stay. After a hard days skiing, it felt very welcoming at the end of the day and was a home from home. Hope to return in the autumn!

“Holidays at chalet cuckoo in Ayer, Switzerland”
Reviewed August 19, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

My husband and I are just coming back from 1 week at Chalet Cuckoo . Built on the top of the village of Ayer , the Chalet offers a beautiful panorama on the mountain . The owner gave us perfect instructions to drive to the place . Very cosy and clean the furniture is made of light tinted wood . The kitchen is well equipped with a dish washer and there is a very convenient washing machine . We could log our laptop . You can rest or take your meals on either of the 2 terraces and listen to the sound of the stream running nearby . .If the weather turns to rain , there is a tv set and a dvd player .We were lucky to get a sunny week and hiked every day on a new trail .At disposal , there are several useful maps for hiking in the mountain .
We will come back .
Tips : a grocery is opened during the summer in the village . A car is highly recommended , although there is a car postal service with a stop at Ayer and there are nice forest trails starting from the village .
No security deposit is asked

“Super cool place and super cool owners!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We stayed for 6 days and nights with our three dogs: a one year old St. Bernard girl, a white Canadian Shepherd and a Bernese Mountain Dog/ Belgian Malinoir mix. It was just perfect! We had the great opportunity to meet Tess and John as a surprise and they are such nice people. They are very uncomplicated and had no problem with our dogs. We loved Chalet Cuckoo - it is quirky, beautifully decorated, much bigger inside than we had anticipated. Well done, you two!
There are nice walks straight from the chalet and it is not too far from Martigny where we went to the Musee des chiens de Grand St. Bernard. Actually, it is not too far from anything one wants to see or do. Please John, can we stay at Chalet Cuckoo again?

“We absolutely loved cuckoo chalet”
Reviewed January 20, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Wonderful place, great decoration, very clean and well-maintained. We felt like we were in our own chalet.

The location is spectacular: beautiful mountains a grand pine tree in front of the chalet, , and, to our surprise, a lovely little stream besides the chalet.

This is a special place and perfect for those who seek contact with nature, peace, silence and the beauty of overpowering views.
