  • …VOELT ECHT ALS THUISKOMEN

    Hoi Maura,

    We willen je bedanken voor het advies en inrichten van ons appartement. Wij zelf vinden het sfeervol en gezellig en het voelt er echt als thuiskomen. Komende week zullen we nog een weekje komen om weer te genieten van het huis, de sneeuw en de zon. Nogmaals bedankt en misschien tot ziens.

  • …PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONAL

    Dreamchalet offered both a professional and personal service concerning all aspects of our purchase in La Tzoumaz in 2013. 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!

  • HET BOUWPROCES IN ZEER GOEDE HANDEN

    Zo ver weg een huis laten bouwen? Je eerste gedachte is toch dat je elke week wel op de bouwplaats moet staan om alles te volgen en te controleren.
    Maar al gauw bleek het bouwen in zeer goede handen te zijn. Perfect georganiseerd, degelijke afspraken, en snelle oplossingen waar het eventjes tegen zat.
    Ook bij de juridische kwesties rond het bezit en het bouwen in Zwitserland zijn we goed geholpen. In 11 maanden tijd stond ons huis er en we genieten volop, van elk seizoen.”

  • WE APPRECIATE WHAT YOU HAVE DONE FOR US

    Dear Charles and Maura,

    I have returned home from the chalet and would like to again thank you for the way you have furnished the chalet, it was beautiful!

    The colour on that sofa is absolutely gorgeous and the tableware looks great.
    You have done a wonderful job and we all want you to know that we appreciate what you have done for us. You have worked so hard!

  • GEEN BETERE NAAM VOOR HET BEDRIJF DENKBAAR!

    Het leek een droom: een eigen chalet in Zwitserland. We hadden de nodige informatie verzameld over een tweede huis in de Franse of Zwitserse Alpen. Het enige vaste uitgangspunt was het budget. Aangezien de prijzen van appartementen van de bekende projectontwikkelaars er niet om liegen, kwamen we op het idee ons nog eens verder te oriënteren via internet. En zo kwamen we op de site van Dreamchalet van Charles en Maura Koopman. Al na het eerste telefonische contact ging voor ons een wereld open aan mogelijkheden. Zelf een stukje grond kopen en zelf een chalet (laten) bouwen? Een geheel nieuw perspectief, dat onmiddellijk ook veel vragen en onzekerheden opwierp. Maar vanaf het eerste moment zijn we op professionele wijze door Charles door het hele proces geloodst. Bij het uitzoeken van de grond en de aannemer, maar ook bij zaken die komen kijken rond de administratieve afhandeling. Gaande het traject groeide ons vertrouwen in Charles en de aannemer. Alles bleek te kloppen. Prijzen, afgesproken termijnen en ‘last but not least’ de kwaliteit. Het eindresultaat is fantastisch. Een vrijstaand chalet met een adembenemend uitzicht in de rust van de Zwitserse Alpen. Dus, Charles en Maura, wat ons betreft hadden jullie geen betere naam voor jullie bedrijf kunnen bedenken!

  • …VERSTAAN DE KUNST OM JOUW IDEE TE VERTALEN

    In 2007 hebben Dreamchalet en Home Swiss Home ons begeleid bij de bouw en inrichting van ons chalet in Haute Nendaz. Deze samenwerking is ons erg goed bevallen.
    Dreamchalet en Home Swiss Home verstaan de kunst om jouw idee over een droomhuis te vertalen naar de juiste locaties, architecten, bouwers, winkels en leveranciers.
    Dreamchalet en Home Swiss Home hebben ons veel werk en stress uit handen genomen door alle bestellingen te plaatsen, leveringen in ontvangst te nemen en betalingen af te handelen zodat alleen het leuke werk (zeggen hoe je het hebben wilt) door ons zelf gedaan hoefde te worden. Dreamchalet en Home Swiss Home hebben zich tijdens het hele proces erg betrokken getoont, meegedacht en veel waardevolle adviezen gegeven. Afspraken zijn duidelijk en worden ook nagekomen.

    Kortom: Dreamchalet en Home Swiss Home bedankt voor alles, mede dankzij jullie is ons huis geworden wat het is.

    fantastische chalet kunnen laten bouwen!

  • FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE

    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.

  • I CAN HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE SERVICES OF DREAMCHALET

    We have just reluctantly returned from Switzerland having just put the finishing touches to our fantastic new chalet in Ovronnaz. Since we first met Charles, just over 18 months ago, he us guided us with great patience and expertise through all the various stages of this project – from finding the land and the builder, to explaining the legal system and to even recommending the best type of building materials to get the right look for our chalet. Maura was also invaluable in helping us furnish the chalet – using her local knowledge of all the best suppliers, organising deliveries, managing our budget and even having a bottle of chilled wine to open when we arrived!Their help and enthusiasm they brought to this project was superb. Owning a chalet in Switerland is a dream come true and I can highly recommend the services of Dreamchalet.

  • YOU NEED SOMEONE YOU CAN TRUST

    Like many couples we have often dreamed of owning somewhere in the Alps. This however always seemed more of a dream than a possible reality until we talked to Charles Koopman of Dreamchalet. He has helped us throughout the process from originally arranging for us to view some possible building sites, putting us in touch with a Swiss mortgage lender, introducing us to builders and architects as well as the Notary. His knowledge of the legal system in Switzerland and how local customs work have been invaluable and he was on hand or at the end of the telephone whenever we needed some help or guidance. We eventually settled on a site in the centre of Ovronnaz a small but beautiful resort with a good snow record and lovely thermal spa, half an hour away from larger better known ski areas and only an hour and a half from Geneva. As with all new builds there are always minor problems but Charles was on hand to help sort these out and we could not have been more happy with the finished chalet, the quality of the workmanship was extremely high and we cannot wait to spend this years ski season in our beautiful chalet.

    When the chalet was nearing completion we had the help of Charles’ lovely wife Maura who helped us with the furnishing of the chalet. Our initial thoughts were that we wanted to buy alot of the items for the chalet ourselves but we are very pleased that we used Maura for most of the furnishings, not only does she have great taste, the logistics of being on site for ordering and delivery would have made the process almost impossible without her. She has thought of everything from large items like wardrobes and beds to bottle openers and crockery.

    When you are trying to build and furnish a property in a different country you need someone you can trust to be on hand to help you out and we would not hesitate in recommending Charles and Maura to any body thinking of buying a property in Switzerland.

  • EXACTLY THE CHALET WE HOPED FOR

    Being interested in the possibility of building our own dream chalet in Switzerland, a web search found the “Dreamchalet” site and business owned by Charles Koopman.
    A couple of calls later and Charles was showing us a number of available plots and chalets of various styles and sizes in the course of construction. Although we eventually decided on a plot found through another broker, Charles’ advice and contacts proved to be invaluable.
    He introduced us to an excellent architect who designed exactly the chalet we hoped for, and also the construction company, who inspired trust and confidence as well as providing real value for money.
    Our dream chalet has recently been completed on time and to budget and quality and there is no doubt that this achievement owes much to the time and friendly assistance Charles was able to give us at the outset.

  • …INVALUABLE ASSISTANCE

    The assistance that Charles gave us with the purchase of our chalet was invaluable which resulted in a stress-free process from beginning to end. We are delighted with the result – a beautifully constructed chalet in a charming resort that has received many compliments from everyone who has visited us.

  • …THE WHOLE PROCESS RAN SEAMLESSY

    Without Dreamchalet International and specifically Charles Koopman we would not have found the perfect plot of land in Mayens de Chamoson.

    Charles helped us through the whole process. He guided us through the legalities of buying and owning a property in Switzerland as a foreigner, introduced us to the bank, recommended the builders and assisted with translation throughout. The whole project ran seamlessly even though we were not able to be on site and the quality of the service and build exceptional.

    We are absolutely delighted with the chalet. Charles has continued to help us now that we have moved in and we can’t thank him enough.

    We would highly recommend Dreamchalet International and Charles to anyone wanting to buy in this area of Switzerland.

  • …CHARLES KOOPMAN, ALLE LOF EN VEEL DANK!

    DREAM NOT YOUR LIFE, LIVE YOUR DREAM
    Dat staat letterlijk als een huis dankzij Charles Koopman. Het bouwen van een chalet in Switzerland is zeer ontspannen verlopen aangezien Charles ons persoonlijk heeft begeleid. Hij heeft ons deskundig geadviseerd bij de bouwondernemer, de bank en bij notariële kwesties. Door hem behielden we het volste vertrouwen in het gehele bouwproces en met veel genoegen denken we terug aan alle deskundige en plezierige contacten. Wij genieten ten volste van ons prachtige chalet. Charles Koopman, alle lof en veel dank.

  • …THE BUILDER DID A GREAT JOB

    Thanks again for your support in realizing our chalet in the Swiss Alps. Since the completation early this summer we already spent several weeks and weekends in it, enjoying the nature and the spectaculair views.

    Having never built a house in the mountains before, the whole process for us was an exciting experience. You were always very helpful in showing us around and providing us with examples of plots and we have greatly appreciated your advice in the desing of the house and many, maby practical questions we came across in the process. Thanks to your introducions to the right people, also the contractual process went smoothly. The builder did a great job, very experienced, good quality build, open for change requests and no ‘big surprises’ at the financial end, thanks to realistic budgetting.

    We are now looking forward to the first snow and a great ski season!

  • …AN INVESTMENT FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS TO ENJOY

    I was browsing on the internet and came across the dreamchalet website  – it struck a cord and I realized that this was exactly the service we required to assist us in achieving our dream of designing, constructing  and enjoying a chalet in the Alps. We have recently completed our chalet and will be spending our first Christmas in Switzerland with our family  and friends.

    Charles guided us all the way through the process – connecting with the banks – advocates – contractors and giving advise and input all the way from design to completion. The Ccntractors did a fantastic job on a very steep site in trying climatic conditions.

    I haven’t seen the chalet complete yet, but my family are currently furnishing the chalet and I asked my son Adan to rate the chalet – he rated it 10/10. This is an investment that should not be sold but retained for our future family generations to enjoy.
