                                                                                                    I have stayed in this lovely chalet with my family a couple of times now (grandparent (me), adults and young family and also a mother and daughter week). I stayed once in winter and then again during the summertime. It is a clean and very nicely kept place and Charly and Kevin the owners are also very helpful. As a non skier, it was very convenient for me to enjoy snowy strolls from the chalet, to watch the children learning on the nearby beginner slope and worry about how fast they were going on the toboggan run! The views and the purity of the air were a delight. And the stars .... spectacular ..... Although the young ones skied straight from the house to the village I found it easy to catch the ski bus to and from the centre of the village where there are lovely bars, cafes and friendly restaurants. There's also a park with swings and slides and a swimming pool. It was very easy to take the pedestrian lift up to the top of the mountain and over into Verbier town centre for some browsing. I also enjoyed the nearby thermal spa - a particular treat. I think it was a 25 minute drive / not far but the winding drive down the mountain takes time. Well worth the trip. In the summer (I stayed in July) it was very easy to drive (I have some mobility issues and so couldn't hike/bike with the young ones) over the tops of the mountains to Verbier town and the local regions where there is much to see and do. The local Valais canton is the fruit region and the juiciest fresh fruits are available to buy from the road side. The local fendent wine (which I understand the Swiss don't export) is very nice. We also enjoyed days by the lake Geneva as recommended where we went swimming and canoeing (not me!). The facilities at the chalet are very good. Importantly for me, the beds are very comfortable and the kitchen has everything in it that one could need for a comfortable family stay. They even had 2 high chairs which was a boon for our clan! The chalet has of the new age internet and tv things that are so popular, but I found a good book, its tranquility (it was large enough to find some, even with a house full!) and outstanding scenery by far the most enjoyable pastimes. Chalet Marie is a super place and I recommend it very highly.

We visited a selection of scenic and interesting places - Gruyere, Thun, Lake Geneva and Chateau de Chillon, Bern, Gstaad and Les Diablerets, Our entire trip was enhanced by glorious weather and meals both at the apartment and on our visits were eaten outside. The enormous terrace was a great bonus. A dip in the pool during such hot weather was very therapeutic. The tranquil surroundings did not put us in an isolated position as food supplies and fuel for the car were within easy reach.
