Make a holiday rental home or chalet in Val-d’Illiez, Switzerland your home away from home

Val-d’Illiez is the name for both a valley in the Canton of Valais and a village within the valley. Separating the northern foothills of the Chablais Alps from the Dents du Midi Mountains, the village of Val d’Illiez is small and peaceful, and ideal for those seeking a relaxing break. With the commune also including the resort towns of Les Crosets and Champoussin, there are plenty of activities on offer throughout the year, including Val d’Illiez’ renowned thermal baths, and of course plenty of top-quality skiing.

Things to do in Val-d’Illiez, Switzerland

Val-d’Illiez is something of a picture-postcard mountain village, and an ideal destination for those that would prefer to stay in good quality self-catering accommodation in a traditional alpine village, rather than a busy purpose-built tourist resort. Despite this, Val-d’Illiez still offers quick and easy access to the main ski resorts of Portes du Soleil, with runs available for all ages and levels of ability.

Cafes, restaurants, shops and pubs can all be found in the village centre, and the most popular attraction in the village is the thermal baths. Relaxing in their warm waters against a spectacular mountain backdrop is extremely relaxing and ideal for soothing aching muscles after a long day on the slopes. The baths are open all year round, and particularly popular during the coldest days of winter.

Those that visit when there is no snow on the ground will be presented with a wide range of hiking, climbing and mountain biking options, including a trip around the daunting Via Ferrata for those brave enough to take up the challenge. Summer is also the time of several events and festivals in Val-d’Illiez, including the yearly fete, which is a great place to meet the locals and sample some traditional Swiss dishes.

It is very comfortable and has everything you need for a trouble free stay including the ski hire shop right underneath and a short walk to the small supermarket plus the added bonus of UK TV. The view from the sitting room is amazing and we never tired of staring at the mountains. The ski-ing is convenient with the drag lift a short stroll away which takes you to the main chairlifts. The ski-ing on the Swiss side is less busy but for cheaper lunches head to France. All in all a great holiday.

We found the process incredibly easy and straightforward. The Cockrem's are friendly and helpful (even emailing me with directions to help us with our drive over). The apartment is beautifully appointed, clean, quiet and in a great location with very easy access to the slopes. Everything has been included to make your stay an easy and comfortable one. There is a small but well stocked shop in the next building, so it's easy to get the basics. They were more than happy to order in gluten free bread for me and a friendly ski hire shop situated on the ground floor of the apartment block. Our children have skied successfully with the local ski school every year, making great progress and the nursery slope and meeting points are very close to the apartment. Our children had progressed onto the blue slopes of the resort within a few hours and reds within days. Night skiing is a big hit with our family, as is the snow park situated just off the main slope. With a Portes Du Soleil ski pass you can easily hop over the border to Avoriaz and Morzine in France and neighbouring Champoussin and Morgin in Switzerland. There are lots of ski runs to explore. The resort itself is quiet, with a few restaurants and a couple of hotels, but for a family holiday with the children then this suits us just perfectly! The slopes are hardly ever crowded, even during half term, especially when compared to the much busier resorts of Avoriaz and Morzine on the other side of the mountain. We love Les Crosets. It really is the best kept secret of the Portes Du Soleil.
