Our building is called 'Margot' and has 10 apartments and 1 penthouse with 2 levels of underground parking. Each apartment has access to it's own ski locker, and storage room,as well as a communal laundry room and an 'on-call' concierge.

Activities: The village of Haute-Nendaz is set in the Valais region at 1400m .It provides access to primarily the Verbier ski area via the lifts at Siviez, and the rest of the 'Four Valleys',including Thyon, Tracouet and Veysonnaz. This provides an enormous expanse of skiing,with all the year round snow because of the Mont Fort glacier at 3300m . The ski season in the village lasts 4 months from mid December all the way through to Mid April.There is also ice skating in the village, and a sports centre with an outside thermal bath & spa located a short drive away near Sion.Like most Swiss villages it is very busy in the summer, blessed by long sunny days and evenings . If you are a walker then there are numerous trails from the village including the world famous “bisses”. There are 8 of these, 6 of which have water in and were built hundreds of years ago for irrigation. Walk along their tranquil banks through the woods and over suspended bridges.If you like mountain biking, you can hire bikes in the village and there are numerous biking trails.
The Village: The village is only 5 minutes walk away with many supermarkets, boulangeries, and grocers to cater for those who wish to cook. It is generally populated by Swiss residents and Swiss second home owners, plus a fair number of EU based owners and visitors. The village is blessed with a very large number of really excellent restaurants ranging from budget pizza up to top class traditional Valais food ! The night life is good,but this is more of a family resort village than a late night clubbing location. In the summer it is beautiful, and you can while away the sunny days by the pool or in one of the beer gardens,watching the para-gliders land on the green below the apartment !
You can easily walk from my apartment in block C of Domaines des Reines to the ski station in the village of Hautes-Nendaz, which takes you up to the Tracouet ski area. The main lift station is located on the upper road in the village and the Domaines des Reines blocks are located just below the upper road. 200m from Block C, is the new Nendaz 4 Vallees Hotel & Spa, at the bottom of which sits on the same level as my apartment block, but the top level of the hotel has an entrance out onto the upper road near the ski station. All you therefore need to do is to walk 200m down a slope from my apartment to the hotel complex and there is a public elevator available which will take you straight up to the upper road, and you can then walk 50m to the lift station. This whole process should take about 5 minutes and if you also want to ski from Siviez instead of Tracouet, you can get a ski bus from the main Nendaz station to Siviez.
