About the property

Near the ski region, 4 bedrooms, max. 8 people, spacious living room

The chalet, right above the forest border, is located within walking distance to the closest village. The ski slopes and the hiking paths lead directly past the house. The nearest ski lift is located a few hundred meters from the chalet. The chalet itself offers enough space for 8 people on three floors. The spacious living room with a gallery invites you to have cosy evenings by the fireplace. The open kitchen and dining area allows you to eat together. The kitchen has direct access to the sun terrace and the balcony. Also, you can get from the living room to the balcony where you will have a wonderful view of the Val d'Herens. The upper floor is separated into two light bedrooms, a spacious bathroom with a shower and WC and an open gallery. From here you will have access to the second sunny balcony. On the lower floor are two more cosy rooms, a bathroom with a tub and WC and a separate entrance.

Central in the Rhônetal: From the Alpage de Thyon you will have a wonderful view of the Rhônetal and the surrounding valleys of Val d'Herens and Val d'Heremens with its impressive mountains. The central location offers charm, excursions to Zermatt, Crans Montana, Sierre and the cultural city of Martigny. Sion, the capitol of Wallis, attracts with its Tourbillon and La Valere castles and the historical old city. After city tour, the refreshing lakes near Sion invite you to relax during the summer.

Hiking region: Directly from the chalet to the Alpage de Thyon, hiking paths for all difficulties begin. The beautiful paths with hiking times of up to 4 hours run without high inclines and mostly through stunning forests. The surrounding mountains can be climbed directly from the chalet. Sophisticated hikes for mountain hikers also begin directly form the chalet. A particular charm are hikes to the valley station Lac de Dix and from the valley station, along with the paths in 4 Vallees.

Joy and relaxation: The Wallis is a region that is known for its delicacies. The Swiss kitchen can be enjoyed in numerous restaurants along the mountain street of Sion to Thyon 2000. You can also have wine tests from the precious Fendant or Pinot Noirs that come from the region and are highly recommended.

With a cool Fendant, you can have a snack or let day run out with fondue in the chalet. This is pure relaxation.

About K. Grimm-Bouveret

We enjoy this region for about 30 years. Our Family came here for holidays the first time in 1985 and built one of the first houses of the Alpage de Thyon 2000 in 1993. We are happy to see how everything grows and how the Region gets developped. For us, as we are townsmen is the fresh air and the view to the mountain every time a new wonder.

K. Grimm-Bouveret purchased this chalet in 1994

Schöner Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir sind mit einem Besuch aus Australien gekommen und haben die Schweizer Berge bewundert. Das Chalet war für 8 Personen ausreichend groß, auch wenn es natürlich voll war. Kleine Probleme, wie mit de Spülmaschine und der Haustür wurden sofort von der Betreuungsagentur gelöst. Unser Australier will nun seine ganze Familie mitbringen.

Ein Phantastisches Haus in phantastischer Lage!

  • 5 of 5

Dieses Haus läßt keine Wünsche offen, es ist sehr gemütlich und sehr gut ausgestattet. Es ist sehr familienfreundlich; man hat kurze Wege zu den Ski-Liften (man kann auch zu Fuß zur Piste laufen). Auch für 2 Familien ist es nicht zu eng, es gibt viel Stauraum. Die Betreuung durch die Vermieter war sehr gut, wir haben viele Tipps für unseren Aufenthalt bekommen. Es waren sehr erholsame Ferien, wir können es nur weiterempfehlen!

alles wunderbar!

  • 5 of 5

sehr schönes chalet, sauber, gemütlich, komfortabel, ruhig, üppige küchenausstattung (einzig ein zweiter grosser kochtopf fehlt), gute matratzen, jegliches personal sehr freundlich, äußerst kompetente skischule. für unsere kinder (4 jahre) leider zu weit von der piste entfernt, so dass wir doch täglich das auto benutzen mussten. für erwachsene ist die entfernung jedoch problemlos zu überwinden. absturzsicherungen stockbetten leider unzulänglich. wir haben eigene gitter mitgenommen, damit ging es wunderbar! alternativ ist jedoch auch genug platz um die matratzen auf den boden zu legen. bei der mietwäsche sind geschirrtücher nicht inbegriffen und sollten mitgebracht werden.

E.L. Wir erlebten super Ferien. wir genossen den grosszügigen Raum im Chalet, die Umgebung sowie die Sauberkeit. Eigentlich würden wir wieder gern gehen doch leider ist es bereits besetzt. Hoffentlich ein anders Mal wieder. Noch etwas. auch die Vermietungsagentur war super kompetent, freundlich und hilfsbereit und entgegenkommend. Danke, dass Sie Ihr Chalet zur Verfügung stellen.

The chalet is located on an alpine pasture somewhat above the mountain village of Les Collon in the middle of the mountains of the Swiss Wallis. Les Collons can be reached on foot. Here you will find grocery stores and sport shops, restaurants, bars, tourist information and a ski school. A bus connection from Les Collons connects the villages of Les Masses-Les Collons-Thyon 2000 and leads directly to the Canton capitol of Sion/Sitten. Above the pasture you will find Thyon 2000, a starting point for hikes and ski tours into the 4 Vallees to Verbier. During the winter, you will find a cross country trail on the Alpage de Thyon of about 2 km length. Directly from the Karibu chalet you can reach the ski lifts of Thyon 2000 and to 4 Vallees, but also hiking paths. During the summer, it is worth to visit the refreshing lakes of Sion. There you will also find the 18 hole golf course. The central location invites you to go on excursions in the famous Wallis ski regions and to France and Italy.

Golf: Those interested in golf also have the possibility in Sion to show their abilities on an 18 hole golf course.

Ski: During the winter, the ski region of the 4 Vallees offers ski fun without an end. The slopes have a lot of snow and are guaranteed to have snow. The glacier region Mont Fort can be reached easily through the slopes. The world cup descents of Piste de l'ours in Veysonnaz is very near to the chalet. From beginners to advanced, everyone will find something here. The selection of ski lifts and cable cars cannot all be used on one day. The chalet is located on the edge of the ski region.
