Overview

About the property

Highlights

A conveniently-located Penthouse in central La Tzoumaz Penthouse 36 is situated at the foot of the main piste, and a few steps from the village centre. Here you are truly absorbed in the mountain atmosphere with everything you need right within your reach.

Bedrooms & Bathrooms

This three-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment comfortably sleeps 6 adults, or 4 adults and up to 4 children. There are two double bedrooms and a third bedroom (with a low ceiling) fitted out with two double beds. There are two bathrooms. If you wish to travel with children under 2 years old, just let us know and we will provide a cot and a high chair in your chalet.

Equipment

The main area of this top-floor penthouse apartment is an open kitchen/living/dining area. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you might need for family catering, including a dishwasher, microwave, coffee machine, oven and hob. There are fondue and raclette sets for a traditional Swiss evening in front of the beautiful views. A hairdryer, iron, electric barbecue and communal washing machine are all available for you to use.

Relaxing

From your lofty, elevated position on top of the resort, you can admire La Tzoumaz’ stunning panoramic views to the front and the rear of the Penthouse. You'll only get to see the hypnotic view of telecabins carrying skiers up and away if you decide not to go skiing yourself! On a blue-sky day, the view stretches 20km, from the floor of the Rhone Valley up to the peaks of the Haut de Cry and the Mont Gond, and in the other direction towards the legendary Vallon d’Arby and its un-pisted ski itinerary. Take a seat in a comfy chair with a glass of local wine at the end of a hard day on the slopes. If you are in need of distraction, there is a flat-screen TV with international channels and a DVD collection.

Internet

Penthouse 36 is equipped with high-speed WIFI for your own private use during your stay.

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

Underground parking for one car in the basement. Winter tyres and/or snow chains sometimes necessary in winter due to frequent snowfalls. Alternative parking is available at 300m for extra vehicles. Contact us for railway or airport transfers.

Winter

The Penthouse Apartment is situated at the foot of the main piste, by the telecabin. This modern, high-speed ski-lift 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 will be offering discounted ski-passes to everyone staying with us from Winter 2015/16. To be eligible for the 10% discount, ski-passes must be ordered and paid in full 12 days in advance of your first ski day. We accept all major credit cards. Orders received up to 2 days in advance are not eligible for the 10% discount however they 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, medium 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 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.

Lovely apartment in great location but let down by poor management

  • 3 of 5

Lovely spacious apartment but sadly the service from the local property managers was well below expected standard. On arrival at the resort their office was closed with no contact numbers on display. Even after this poor start they did not show us to the apartment. Other problems included:

WiFi code was not where we were told it would be;

We had to ask for a microwave to be delivered (the property advert specifies microwave);

The glass shower screen had come away from the wall and we had to wait 48 hours for it to be repaired, with no updates on progress from the management company;

We spent a great deal of our time dealing with problems with the washing machine, which clearly the management team were very unfamiliar with as they didn't even know where it was located. These issues would have been prevented with a few simple instructions; and finally although

it appears that smoke detectors are not a legal requirement in Switzerland and indeed we could not see any in the apartment, the smaller bedroom/bathroom where many families would let their children sleep has no escape route and could therefore become a death trap in the event of a fire.

Perfect location opposite the bars and supermarket and next door to the lifts. Top floor great views

  • 5 of 5

Be the first on the lift after breakfast in Le Pistarde, a Patisserie serving fluffy croissants, great coffee and sandwiches if required, located on the ground floor of the very building where Penthouse 36 is located! If one has children, ski school also meets next door to this building, it's always a rush to get going in the mornings but at least there is no distance to travel here!

Penthouse 36 is located next to the main lift to Savoleyres and Verbier beyond, opposite two favourite bars, T bar and Bar Central and the new supermarket. La Tzoumaz offers 3 further bars and a number of Great restaurants.

Good snow and plenty of sun is also a great combination but if one doesn't fancy a ski there are other activities, thermal baths on the valley floor 1/2 hour away or perhaps a spot of shopping in Verbier a lift away!

A great holiday and looking forward to our next visit.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great holiday here. The access to the ski area is really easy and there ski hire shop is nearby. We had some confusion with the discounted ski passes but this was quickly resolved when Anna was contacted.

I would point out that the third bedroom with ensuite is approximately 5ft high so ideal for kids but not so good for the adults in our party. La Tzoumaz was lovely and quiet and usual swiss prices apply!

Excellent property well appointed and equipped

  • 4 of 5

Lovely apartment with lots of benefits and space. Disappointed that agency decided to charge 50 fr for early entry as we arrived 1 hour before check in time. (Office was open anyway and apartment had already been cleaned and was ready). Any issues were resolved quickly (i.e. Internet was not working)

Ideal centre for Winter skiing and Summe walking

  • 4 of 5

“We stayed in Penthouse 36 in the Summer. The apartment is in the centre of the village of La Tzoumaz, and right next door to the cable car over to Verbier.

There is car parking in the basement, with a lift up to the penthouse.

The penthouse has three bedrooms, sleeping six. With two bathrooms. The view from the balcony of the valley and surrounding mountains is outstanding. We loved our stay and hope to return again next year."

What a view! I wish I could wake up to that view every day. Thank you Penthouse 36 for a great holiday. Fresh croissants each morning from the Boulanger downstairs. No stomping around in ski boots as the lift is so close and there was easy access to the ski school. Evenings were a breeze, great choice of restaurants in a safe environment. High standards in the apartment were very much appreciated, booking next year too. Regards, the Silcocks.

Verbier's 4 Valleys
Car: not necessary

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…
