About the property

Bedrooms 5, Bathrooms 5, Sleeps 12

Highlights

This luxury penthouse apartment is a rare treat in La Tzoumaz: 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, ski-in and ski-out access, and an easy walk to the town centre! From the moment the automatic garage door opens to allow you into the snow-free underground parking, everything has been designed with skiers in mind: from the apartment you descend into the parking and are then transferred directly onto the piste by a shuttle cabin on rails that easily climbs the 80m distance up the near-vertical mountainside, so that you don't have to! This is what makes this luxury apartment ski-in-ski-out. No more struggling onto a ski-bus with arms full of children's skis and poles, and no need to walk around in your ski-boots. There's also no need to clear snow from your car in the mornings as you can just park it indoors and forget about it until the end of your stay. The 220m2 Penthouse benefits from fantastic views across the valley and to the mountains up to 20km away. The large windows of the open living / dining area were specially designed to make the most of this ever-changing vista.

Bedrooms & Bathrooms

The apartment comfortably sleeps 12 in five spacious bedrooms. There are two double bedrooms & two twin bedrooms, each with their own en-suite bathroom.The fifth bedroom comes complete with four single beds, private bathroom, bean-bags, TV and games console. When used as a child’s dormitory, this room transforms into a magical play space in the rafters. As this room has limited head room in some parts and 76cm-wide beds it is ideally suited to children, but not exclusively so.

Three of the en-suite bathrooms have a sink, shower and WC. The remaining two have a sink, bath with shower and WC.

If you wish to travel with children under 2 years old, just let us know and we will provide a travel cot and a high chair for you.

Equipment

In the granite-topped kitchen you will find all the equipment you may need: a fridge, grill and an oven with induction hob. A kettle, toaster, microwave, blender and coffee-machine, plus fondue and raclette sets for a traditional Swiss evening in front of the log fire. The wooden dining area has seating for 14 people. A hairdryer, iron and portable outdoor barbecue are all available for you to use and there is a shared (coin-operated) washing machine and dryer available in the building. Large ski-lockers with built-in electric boot heaters provide the perfect solution to storing and drying your ski equipment, ready for the next day. They are on the ground floor of the building right next to the entrance to the shuttle that carries you up to the piste.

Relaxing

Relax into a Chesterfield sofa or a leather armchair in the large living / dining area after a hard day on the slopes, watch a Satellite TV programme or a DVD on the flat-screen television, dock your iPod and listen to the stereo, or simply sit on the balcony and admire the beautiful panoramic views that face the apartment. On a blue-sky day, the view stretches 20km, up to the peaks of the Haut de Cry and the Mont Gond. A second table area in a charming bay window makes a great space for some quiet reading or a game of cards. There is a selection of games to keep the children entertained (and perhaps the adults...) although the children will probably spend much of their free time hiding upstairs in the children's room with its TV, games console and fun, shuttered windows which overlook the main living area!

Internet

The Penthouse is equipped with free, high-speed WIFI for your own private use.

Pets

We’re sorry but this is a pet-free property. Please browse our selection of pet-friendly rentals if you would like to travel with your pet.

Parking

Two underground parking spaces are included. Car not necessary in winter due to proximity to ski-lifts, restaurants and supermarket. Contact us for airport or railway transfers.

Winter

This penthouse is ski-in and ski-out (and sledge-in and sledge-out)! During the ski season, you only have to step into the shuttle cabin from the car park and you are carried the 80m uphill to the piste. From here you only need to ski (or sledge) 300m down the main piste and you arrive at the Savoleyres telecabin. At the end of the last run of the day, don't forget to stop before the end and hop into the shuttle cabin to be carried the last 80m to your door. The main piste is not accessible to complete beginners, who would need to walk the 300m to the ski-school meeting point at the telecabin. The modern high-speed telecabin carries you from La Tzoumaz up to the top of the Savoleyres in less than 8 minutes, from where you can decide to ski back on the quiet La Tzoumaz slopes or ski down to Verbier's legendary slopes and world-class off-piste opportunities in the vast 4-Valleys ski area.

We are very pleased to announce that we offer discounted ski-passes to everyone staying with us. To be eligible for the full 15% discount, 6+day ski-passes must be ordered and paid in full 31 days in advance of your first ski day. We accept all major credit cards. Orders for 1-21 days received up to 14 days in advance are eligible for a 10% discount. All advance-purchase passes will be printed for collection with your keys when you arrive in the resort. Last minute orders will be available for collection on the morning after you arrive. Discounted passes are available for all age-groups, for durations from one half-day up to 21 days, and cover the Savoleyres, Verbier or 4-Valleys sectors. The discount does not apply to the insurance options available. Ski-passes can neither be cancelled nor exchanged once they have been ordered. The discount is applicable in high and low season and also applies to family rates. It is not cumulative with any other offers or reductions. On arrival in the resort we will also provide you with discount vouchers for various other services, such as ski lessons and ski equipment rental.

Summer

In summer, the area turns into a hiking and mountain biking paradise, with hundreds of kilometres of marked trails criss-crossing the mountains, awash with alpine flowers and a range of wildlife to spot. The 'Bisses' are relatively flat footpaths that follow the water as it trickles around the mountainsides, where for centuries farmers and villagers channelled the streams for their own uses. They have been preserved now and can be an incredible way to spend a day or more on easy hikes with stunning views across the Rhone Valley or over to the Massif des Combins. We'll provide you with plenty of tourist information including our favourite suggestions for day trips that are easily reachable from La Tzoumaz, from spectacular gorge walks, cheese factories and roman festivals to rainy-day ideas such as underground lake tours. The road that winds up the mountain-top to the panoramic Croix-de-Coeur Cafe-Restaurant opens as soon as the snow melts and from here you can continue the drive (or cycle) all the way down into Verbier.

In the peak summer season from early July to late August, the telecabin link to Verbier operates daily from 08:45 to 12:30 and from 13:30 to 16:45, meaning that you can easily access the famous resort as a pedestrian or accompanied by your bicycle. You can even use a variety of mountain lifts to make your way up to Mont Fort at 3300m for Europe’s highest fondue and incredible mountain panoramas that include Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn. Don’t miss the Swiss National Celebrations in La Tzoumaz on August 1st, or the famous festival of live music performances, the Verbier Festival, which runs from mid-July to the beginning of August.

About Anna

We are Percy and Anna Kirkman, and we live in La Tzoumaz all year round, love outdoor sports, and are passionate about the beauty and opportunities of the region. We are fluent in both English and French. Originally from England, we both followed international careers within Procter & Gamble before making a life-changing move to the mountains at the end of 2013. We believe we are the most customer-focused professional holiday rental agency here in the resort, and we work hard year-round to find ways to improve our services to you as holidaymakers.

What makes this apartment unique

We believe the region of La Tzoumaz is magical. It has access to some of the best skiing in Europe, hundreds of kilometres of majestic hiking, fantastic mountain bike trails, wonderful family footpaths, and is a delight to live in all year round. We want to help other people to enjoy La Tzoumaz all year round, both now and into the future.

Location

Other Activities:

Verbier's 4-Valleys

The versatile resort of La Tzoumaz is nestled just over the back of Verbier’s Mount Savoleyres with access to all of the famous Verbier 4-Valleys slopes and off-piste areas in winter. In summer, the mountains become a paradisaical network of hiking trails and mountain-bike routes, with something for every taste. From La Tzoumaz you can ride the same legendary pistes and powder bowls, but accommodation prices are only a fraction of those in Verbier itself! Every property is prepared to high standards and each has a stunning panoramic view of the mountains and valley. The resort is only 1h45 from Geneva Airport, and transfers can be arranged on request. We live in the resort year-round and are on hand to welcome you on your arrival and to help you with anything you might need to know or arrange, whether before, during or after your stay. If we’re not in the office, we’ll gladly take your call even if we’re out enjoying the biking, hiking or skiing for ourselves…

Superbe endroit

  • 5 of 5

Grand chalet avec beaucoup de commodités. De la place pour tout le monde. Nous étions 7 adultes et aurions facilement pu être 1 ou 2 personnes de plus sans se marcher sur les pieds.

Emplacement exceptionnel avec très belle vue. Pour ceux qui n'apprécient guère les lacets dans la montagne, ça peut être un problème.

Excellent comfortable stay at the Penthouse

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has an excellent lounge diner / kitchen area that includes a smaller round sitting area, with a balcony and fabulous views. Its exactly as nice as it looks. It is great to be able to go down in the lift that opens into the apartment , put on your skis and boots hop into the private ski lift and be on the piste without having to walk any where (my kids nicknamed it the James Bond apartment as its so cool). Every bedroom has its own en suite and the teenagers loved hanging out in the top bed room which has 4 beds and a TV. Anna and Percy went out of there way to make sure we had a great stay.

Absolutely fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely fantastic place to stay with everything on your door step. A convenient private lift takes you straight from the boot room onto the slope, unlike anything you'll experience anywhere else!! Most definitely somewhere we will return

We like it

  • 4 of 5

2 choses nous ont dérangés

1. L'odeur de fumée de cigarettes qui malgré vos produits est resté et le fait qu'il est difficile d'évacuer les odeurs , de cuisine, en général.

2. Le bruit infernal de l'ascenceur qui va sur la piste a perturbé notre sommeil.

Fantastic apartment which offers the most luxurious accommodation with direct access to the slopes

  • 5 of 5

Amazing apartment in a beautiful village which is incredibly close to Verbier. Direct access to the slopes via the apartments own ski lift makes getting onto the slopes effortless in the morning. Very well equipped apartment which meant we had everything we needed for a great holiday!
