It's a big chalet with plenty or room, although we go just the 2 of us. It is close to the road but when you're there you cannot see your neighbors and the place is rather wild. There are amazing walk to do in the area, Glacier de Ferpècles, Barrage et Lac des Dix aso A lot of things have been renovated in the Chalet and there is a fireplace too. a stove for Raclette.... We just love going there and will continue as long as possible! Thank You Eduardo and Sabine for sharing this amazing place with us!

We found the chalet to be extremely cosy and comfortable. Kitchen was small but well equipped. The views from the balcony were stunning. The chalet was a short walk to the resort where the restaurants, tourist info etc etc were located. Everyone really friendly and helpful. Hugh (owner) gave us very clear directions on how to find the chalet and info for days out etc. Highly recommend for a relaxing holiday!

                                                                                                Having stayed at Le Preyet for just under 2 weeks in August I have to say it is the best Alpine apartment we have stayed in to date. The view across the valley to Nendaz was amazing and the apartment was very clean, comfortable and well equipped for our stay - a real home-from-home. There are lots of walks along the renowned bisses across the valley but if you like more challenging walking, the cable cars from Nendaz and Siviez are a better bet - 15 minutes drive away. Alternatively you can just sit on the apartment terrace with a glass of wine and admire the views all day long. In summer season there isn't much action in Veysonnaz (not a problem for us) but again Nendaz seemed to have more going on and could be quite busy. The Manager Ruth who lives next door was amazing too, helping to find a local repairer for a puncture the morning of our departure ensuring we remained on schedule. Overall a great family holiday.
