LUXURY CHALET, CLOSE TO TELECABINE, BREATHTAKING VIEWS!

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday chalet in Haute-Nendaz - Chalet Le Joyau

3 bedroom chalet, sleeps 6. Furnished to high standard in contemporary style.

Chalet le Joyau is a luxury 3-bedroom chalet with breathtaking views overlooking the Rhone valley. It is situated in the centre of Nendaz, just 10 minutes from the ski lifts and only 2 hours from Geneva airport. For ease of travel our changeover day is Saturday.

The chalet's accommodation is on two floors, with a separate entrance on each level. It is furnished to the highest standards in an unfussy, contemporary style and is generously equipped with everything you could need for a relaxing stay.

This includes flatscreen TV, Blu ray and DVD player, high quality hifi with MP3 player and fast wifi.

Entering from the front garden, the entrance hall and cloakroom lead into a big open plan sitting/dining room and fully fitted kitchen, with windows and balconies on three sides offering stunning views over the Rhone Valley. Downstairs are the three bedrooms and main bathroom as well as the large technical area - for skis and boots and with its own access to the garden.

The chalet has three private car parking spaces including a garage, all next to the chalet.

Kids / Spas: Nendaz is a great resort for families, with plenty to entertain the kids. In winter there is a children snow park up at Tracouet with a 'moving carpet' lift for tinies, and a tubing and sledging area. The ski schools take kids from the age of 3 and the creche in Nendaz is able to take infants from 18 months. For those with younger children, our concierge service offers a personal babysitting service. In summer there's lots for kids to do around the resort. In the village there is a large adventure playground with trampolines with bungee harnesses. There is also an open air swimming pool.

There are a number of thermal spas within easy driving access of Nendaz, open all year round. The closest are at Saillon, a dramatic medieval fortress town in the valley beneath Nendaz. Also close to Nendaz is the boutique ski and spa resort of Ovronnaz, above Saillon, on the north side of the Rhone Valley.

Nendaz - the all year round resort: Most people head to the Alps in Winter because of the snow. But the people who live here know that the mountains can be equally rewarding throughout the year.

For skiers and boarders the 4 Valleys offers over 400km of marked runs - as well as plenty of unmarked stuff for the experts and mentalists.

And for walking and mountain biking the opportunities are virtually limitless, with the lift network operating in July and August.

if there isn't snow on the ground there's still plenty to do and see in the mountains around Nendaz.

From the top of Mont-Fort down to the bottom of the Rhone valley are countless miles of paths covering the full range of Alpine terrain from high mountain glacier to gentle meadow.

Some of the best walking is along the network of bisses. Built by the farmers of the Valais to bring water down to the dry lower slopes, the irrigation channels date back as early as 1435, and their accompanying paths criss-cross the mountainside, offering outstanding views.

Summer attractions : Nendaz is an ideal location for mountain biking and offers tracks for all levels in a glorious setting. You can use the lift systems to give your mountain bike a chance to really deserve its name. Novices as well as confirmed sportsmen/women can find an itinerary suited to their level. For those looking for a challenge the Tour de Mont Fort is a 48km route which provides the opportunity to enjoy the spectacular scenery of the Nendaz, Verbier and La Tzoumaz ski areas, combining glaciers and alpine meadows in the tour.

For those who want to watch the action, the Grand Raid passes through Nendaz. with its 132km and a variation in altitude of 4600m, the Grand Raid is the longest mountain bike race in the world. With more than 4000 participants, including some of the best cyclists in this field, the race leaves from Verbier and passes though Nendaz en route, attracting many spectators every year who gather along the route.

About Robert Smith

We are a family based in London with a passion for the mountains and skiing. Ros grew up in Switzerland and has beeb skiing in the Four Vallees ski region since she was a small child. Our son, Jake is now following in his mother's footsteps or ski tracks and like us is developing an early passion for the mountains.

tracks?) In our opinion, having skied in many, many domains across Europe and America, the Four Vallees offers the best skiing we have found, which is why we bought a place here.

Robert Smith purchased this chalet in 2006

Why Robert Smith chose Haute-Nendaz

Chalet Le Joyau is our second family home. As such we have therefore furnished and styled it for ourselves. Hopefully you will find that it is stylish and comfortable rather than being a bland and characterless rental property.

We bought le Joyau it for ourselves although we rent it so that we can share it with others. It is not a business as such. We are always keen to ensure that people enjoy the chalet and the resort as much as we do.

What makes this chalet unique

The chalet has an uninterrupted view from the balcony, looking out across the Rhone valley which covers in the region of 70 miles of mountain range as you look from left to right including such peaks as the Matterhorn. We absolutely promise that you will be stunned by the view.

The chalet is centrally located, easily accessible both on foot and by car and is within a c.5 mins walk from the main ski lift

Guestbook comments from the owner

I very much enjoyed my stay here. This could be the best place on earth.

Summer in Nendaz - not to be missed!

  • 5 out of 5
We've stayed at Chalet Le Joyeaux a couple of times in the winter to ski, but we're just back from our first summer break there, and it was brilliant. Hard to believe, but the sheer size and beauty of the valley in the summer is even greater than when its snow covered. Summers in Nendaz seem to be a well kept secret, it felt like a giant, empty playground for us to play in!
We got up before dawn to watch the sunrise from the top of Mont Fort (it came up with an orange sky over the Matterhorn whilst behind us, the moon set in a lilac sky behind Mont Blanc!) followed by a Swiss breakfast to beat all breakfasts.
The mountain walking was breathtakingly beautiful, staggering views of the valley, sunshine, gentle breeze and wild flowers in abundance. We hired mountain bikes from the local ski hire shop; excellent fun, and as with the ski-ing in Nendaz, as easy or demanding as you want it to be.
Also to be recommended are the thermal spas down in Saillon on the valley floor near Sion, and if you have the time, some wine tasting.
We'll be back to Chalet Le Joyeaux for summers and winters to come; it’s a really welcoming chalet, beautifully decorated and very well equipped, situated in a lovely small town in the mountains, with great things to do year round.

Gemütliches Chalet im Freeride Mekka

  • 5 out of 5
Ein viel zu schöner Ort, um nach nur einem Wochenende wieder abreisen zu müssen!
Wir genossen den strahlend blauen Himmel auf ausgiebigen Entdeckungstouren auf und neben der Piste. Am Abend waren wir froh, dass die leckeren Pizzas gleich "um die Ecke" zu finden waren!
Mein erster aber sicher nicht mein letzter Besuch!

Another great stay at Chalet Joyau...

  • 5 out of 5
Thoroughly recommended. This is the third time we've stayed at Chalet Joyau. We feel very at home here; it's warm, cosy & family orientated. Nendaz has everything you need. We recommend driving 10 minutes to Siviez for the best access to the ski area.

Astonishing and Beyond Beautiful

  • 5 out of 5
We were a family of four and we stayed for three weeks in July 2012. The stay was astonishing and beyond beautiful and we enjoyed many things in the valleys and mountains. The chalet is wonderful with a panoramic view of the valleys. The chalet provides a cozy atmosphere and a great location relative to Nendaz. We did hiking many times in different areas and they were all astonishingly beautiful. I would not miss the paragliding with “Element Air” which was exhilarating and an experience of a life time, if you want to be a bird in the Alps then go for it. We also took our kids for Raspberry and Apricot picking in the fields of Nendaz and we got to know the farmers there. We ventured into France to Montblanc and we visited other wonderful places like Zermatt. The Chalet is strategically located near France and Italy in case you want to do short trips by car. The summer was wonderful in Nendaz with cool weather which is great for hiking trips, we had lots of rain and one day it snowed on top of the mountain above 4000 M. I am sure the Chalet is great for the winter holiday and I would love to have it for a ski trip. Rent and Enjoy.

Our Christmas stay at Chalet le Joyau

  • 5 out of 5
Chalet le Joyau is a homely, welcoming and cosy chalet to stay in. The chalet provides all you require to relax and enjoy your holiday. The property was clean and provided all the information you may need to get around the area.

The skiing/ snowboarding in Nendaz was excellent and easily reached by either a free bus (stops near to chalet) or by a 10 minute walk(longer with children). Nendaz itself is abolutely lovely with a good selection of places to eat, drink and shop. Excellent tourism office.

This is nothing to do with chalet..... but fly direct to Geneva or Sion, don't do indirect flights (i.e Amsterdam-Geneva). Our luggage was delayed for two days!!

Thank you for our enjoyable stay..... Will definitely consider revisiting next season (once my arm heals!!!).

Nendaz is one of the best kept secrets in the Swiss Alps. It lies at the centre of the world class Verbier - 4 valleys ski area.

Unlike most ski resorts, Nendaz and the surrounding area is an all year-round resort. From mountain biking or walking on the high alpine passes through to relaxing by the open-air pool or spas and exploring the many local vineyards, there is something for all the family throughout the year.

Other Activities: spa baths, vinyards and wine tasting

Ski: With 92 different lifts serving 412 km of marked runs (and a wealth of off-piste), there's plenty in the 4 Valleys to keep skiers and boarders of all abilities occupied for many a season. The more demanding terrain is in the southern part of the ski area, which is as easily accessible from Nendaz as it is from its more famous neighbour, Verbier. The un-pisted itinerary runs from Mont-Fort (3330m) and Mont-Gelé, and the Tortin and Gentianes routes, all demand respect from the experienced skier.

To the north are the gentler, groomed pistes above Veysonnaz and Thyon - although the 1km vertical descent down the red from Ethérolla to Mayens-De-L'Ours - including the world cup run 'La Piste de l'Ours' - would be testing without a break.

Nendaz itself sits in the centre of this outstanding ski area, and has swift links to the neighbouring valleys via the Tracouet gondola, just ten minutes walk from the chalet. There is also a regular free shuttle bus service between Nendaz and Siviez.
