Mountain Homes in SwitzerlandBy Lauren Jade Hill

Switzerland has long been home to some of the most exclusive addresses, from dynamic cities Zurich and Geneva, to picturesque Lake Lucerne. Some of the most desirable locations lie within the mountains, where a contemporary take on traditional chalets is met with sweeping mountain views and immediate access to some of the world’s most renowned ski runs. Here’s our pick of outstanding mountain homes in Switzerland that are on the real estate market right now.

Chalet Schlössli-li, Gstaad

Situated at the heart of heritage-rich town Saanen, the four-bedroom Chalet Schlössli-li is ideally located for the local ski scene, as well as shops and international schools. The property combines classic features, such as reclaimed-wood flooring and 19th-century wood paneling, with contemporary design and modern amenities. The chalet’s high ceilings and series of skylights mean the interior is flooded with light, with sprawling loft space on the top floor, and double French doors that open out onto a south-facing balcony for panoramic views of the Gstaad Valley and surrounding mountains.
