It is warm and cosy, with more than enough space for 3 adults and 2 children. The location is perfect - very central with easy access to the slopes etc. The boot room is great, and ski bus stop just down the road. It is equipped with every thing you need for a comfortable stay. Adrain is a great host - he provides lots of information regarding the property and the area. We would certainly love to stay here again on our next visit to Zermatt. Many thanks Adrian.

                                                                                                      This was our second year staying in this chalet, we had a great time last year and wanted to come back again. We love the wrap around mountain views from the living room which are spectacular, particularly when the sun is shining. We were a party of 5 and there was more than enough room, especially with 3 bathrooms in the chalet and the large living space. The chalet is very well stocked with cooking equipment if cooking at home is your thing, but the local restaurants are superb with fondue at La Cabane and pizza at Tchin Tchin being our favourites. Proximity to the lift is great in order to access the Tracouet area, from which you can quickly access the wider Verbier ski area. Nendaz is ideally situated in the middle of the 4 Vallees which allows the option to go "left" to Veysonnaz or "right" towards Verbier. Endless skiing for all abilities. Enjoy!
