The views from the balcony are stunning and we had many memorable meals sitting out in the Valais sunshine. The building is a short walk to the cable car to Tracouet which is the start of many lovely walks. The owner answered queries promptly and helpfully. A great area and a great apartment. Many thanks, Karen, for your hospitality.
