Alan Rogers Review

Reputably enjoying more hours of sunshine than anywhere in Switzerland, Leysin has become a well equipped resort with skiing facilities including a cable way to a revolving restaurant. The village straggles up the mountain side and Sémiramis is at the start of this. With 120 pitches and on a slight slope with static caravans on the upper level, the meadow at the entrance provides 60 places for touring visitors. No places are marked out and long leads may be required for the electricity hook ups (6/15A). There is little shade but the views are breathtaking and mountains protect the campsite to the north.

This neat, compact site has very friendly, English speaking management and provides an excellent base to enjoy the amenities of the region. Leysin came to fame at the end of the last century when it was found that the pure mountain air was conducive to the cure of tuberculosis. The discovery of antibiotic drugs in 1955 made the lengthy natural treatment redundant and Leysin turned to tourism as a summer and winter resort. At 4,500 feet above sea level in the Vaudois Alps, there are spectacular views over the Rhône valley.
