We had the most luxurious Christmas holiday ever!

                                                                                                  We loved staying in the apartment. It's spacious, clean and well appointed with all the facilities we needed. The view is fantastic, especially from the main room and the balcony has plenty of space for relaxing or eating outside while admiring the mountains alongside the Dala gorge and towards the Rhone valley. The scene changes all the time. On clear, sunny days (of which there are plenty) you can see far across the valley. When clouds roll in, they sometimes fill the valley below Albinen, creating a mysterious and equally spectacular view. Albinen is quiet place away from the crowds. We stayed for a whole month. We had no car, so relied on public transport. Buses serve the two main routes: one towards Leukerbad, home of thermal spas, the other down to Leuk and Susten, where the trains run through towards Geneva in one direction and Brig in the other. It's easy to get to other places too. On one day we took an early morning bus from Albinen to Leuk. We then took the train to Stresa, Italy (using the Intercity route from Geneva to Milan). We were in Stresa by 9:38am; it's that close! It's even easier to get to Sion, Zermatt, Saas Fee and other resorts; all using public transport. Needless to say, the are many walks to be taken from Albinen, from easy to difficult. There's a route to cover most walking or hiking abilities. Self-catering was easy. The apartment is very well equipped. The village shop stocks most of the essential items you need. There are bigger supermarkets at both Leukerbad and Leuk. Albinen has a couple of popular eating places, including Restaurant Sunnublick and Wirtshaus Godswärgjistubu. (Note that, as at the time of our visit, the Hotel Rhodania, which is advertised both online and notice boards around Albinen, was actually no longer operating.) The Hotel Restaurant Flaschen is at Flaschen, which is a short bus ride or about an hour's walk from Albinen. Food and service there is excellent. There are other goods establishments not far from Albinen, with a special mention for Bodmen Stubli, about 45mins walk from Leukerbad. Beds in the apartment were comfortable. There's plenty of hot water. A log-burning fireplace is also available, although throughout our stay in August, we didn't need this. On clear days in Summer, the sun hits the apartment face on in the afternoon and heats up the apartment nicely. Host Michael was very welcoming and helpful; making sure we had all we needed. We highly recommend staying here!

The area is significantly more developed form then but does not detract from the “village” feel. This is the first time we has stayed in a chalet in Zinal it was very comfortable, warm and spacious chalet with all the home comfort you could wish for. Very easy to deal with the owners on access there are also local contacts for any queries. We have a reason to visit in the summer rather than the winter however this should not put you off visiting in the “off season”. There is plenty to do in Zinal and the Libertie cards provide plenty of scope for exploration at no expense whilst saving your lungs and energy getting up to 8500'. The view are spectacular. The accommodation is excellent and well placed for easy access to all amenities. I would love to visit in the winter to see the contrast from +20 degrees in the summer to deep snow! I can't big it up too much or it might become too popular ;-)
