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.

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.

Prijs/kwaliteit: een aanrader.

  • 4 of 5

Mooi en rustig gelegen chalet. Niet bijzonder luxueus maar wel compleet en comfortabel, al kunnen de zetels beter. Vlotte afhandeling van de reservatie.
