Comfortable Swiss chalet in rural setting with superb views
average rating of 4.0 based on 5 reviews

A perfect place to be with friends

  • 4 of 5

We're coming over here for years now and this facility has it all. Nice fire-place, cooking facilities, a living room with an amazing view, very clean. It's the perfect place to come over by car when you want to do some skiïng but don't want to be around the buzy (and expensive) skiïng town Verbier. The place to be if you want to get some rest and bring your mind in peace again.

Lovely chalet for a very fair place

  • 4 of 5

The chalet is beautiful located and a cosy place for up to six persons if u dont need a luxury place. For nearby tours around the area we recommend Champez-Lac. If it's not a snowy day go to Chamonix Mont Blanc. It's around one hour by car and worth to take the twisting route. Anyway Orsieres is a lifeless hicktown...

Nice little swiss chalet

  • 4 of 5

We had a very restful holiday-week in winter-season. Possibilities for skiing, snowshoeing, shopping nearby, however calm and sunny, with a superb view to the opposite side of the valley. Though the bedrooms were small, the living with fireplace was quite cozy after daily activities. The kitchen was well equipped, but could have been pre-cleaned better. Altogether, this is a fine holiday-place to recommend.

Ruim vakantiehuis met openhaard op fantastische plek!

  • 4 of 5


Vakantie met 6 volwassenen.

Geweldige vakantie gehad, 3 dagen skiën, 3 dagen wandelen en lekker voor de openhaard zitten. Mooi ruim huis op de zuidzijde van een berg. Fantastisch uitzicht over het dal. Heerlijk balkon waar we enkele uren in korte broek en t-shirt hebben kunnen zitten. Compleet uitgerust huis. Ruime woon/eetkamer/ keuken. 25-20 Minuten van het grote skigebied Verbier en Champix ( klein gebiedje). Supermarkt in Orsieres. Dit alle leek te mooi om waar te zijn, maar het was zelfs nog beter dan verwacht. Een echte aanrader als je niet perse midden in een ski- of toeristen gebied hoeft te zitten. We hebben allemaal echt genoten.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review - I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay in our chalet. It was unfortunate that the weather was unseasonably warm this year, but it's good to hear that you managed to enjoy the sunshine nonetheless, and squeeze in some skiing.

Located in French speaking Switzerland, the chalet is under an hour away from both France (Chamonix) or Italy (Aosta). Closest town is Orsieres (5 min drive / 30min walk), with Martigny approximately 20 minutes drive away.

The chalet is in an ideal location to 'get away from it all', surrounded by plenty of hills and walking trails. Though not on the doorstep of any ski slopes, it is not a far drive away from well known sites such as Verbier, Grand St. Bernard, Champex (and Val Ferret), or even several slopes across the border in Italy.

Ski: The following ski resorts are within 30 minutes drive: Verbier, Champex, Vicheres, Liddes, Val Ferret and Grand St Bernard, with cross country skiing at Val Ferret. Nearby you can enjoy superb alpine scenery, walking, boating (at Champex), rock-climbing, mountaineering etc.
