PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONAL
Dreamchalet offered both a professional and personal service concerning all aspects of our purchase in La Tzoumaz. Dreamchalet were recommended by a personal friend and their advice and guidance throughout the transaction was excellent. They went above and beyond what was required of them, and we would have no hesitation in recommending them highly!

THE CONSTRUCTION IN VERY GOOD HANDS
Build a house far away from home? Your first thought is that you are going to have to be present at the construction site weekly to make sure everything is in order and follow the entire process. But very early on we noticed that the construction of our chalet was in very qualified hands. Perfectly arranged, decent agreements and fast solutions whenever small problems presented themselves. We where also guided very well with any legal issues following owning land and constructing in Switzerland. In 11 months time our chalet was there and we are enjoying it to the fullest every season.
Everdien Louws, Theo van der Vlugt (NL)
Our experience of Dreamchalet has been fantastic. From our initial viewing of a potential plot 2 years ago to getting our keys earlier this year, we have been expertly guided by Charles and Maura – making the experience far less daunting than we could ever have imagined. Not only has the quality of the build been of an extremely high standard but we have had lots of advice post-build – from where to shop for furniture and even buy firewood! We’d highly recommend to others thinking of building their very own dream chalet.
