Overview

About the property

Chalet Les Marmottes for up to 10 people, with sauna, renovated in 2015

Highlights

A recently-renovated ski-in chalet with sauna that sleeps up to 10 people across three floors of living space. Situated at the edge of the forest, numerous beautiful and varied hiking paths leave from nearby the chalet. The open kitchen / living / dining area has been designed for comfort and relaxation, with a large dining table and long sofa to relax on. The chalet benefits from magnificent panoramic views of the valley and the mountains beyond. There is a well-designed entrance area to help you to easily manage and organise all the skiing or biking equipment from two families or a large group.

Bedrooms & Bathrooms

There are four spacious bedrooms and a fifth, open room that will comfortably sleep a total of 10 people. The entrance is on the ground floor near the sauna. Here there is a double room with a large bathroom with corner bath and shower, and a twin bedroom with a separate shower room fitted with double rain shower. On the top floor there are two twin rooms, each with shaped roof and wardrobe, and an open area with a double bed, TV and comfortable sofa. There is a further shower rooms on the main floor near the living area. 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 kitchen is fully fitted to meet the needs of family cooking, including an oven with hob, a fridge and separate freezer. There is a dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster, Nespresso and filter coffee-machine, plus fondue and raclette sets for a traditional Swiss evening in front of the log fire. Washing machine, dryer, hairdryer, iron and portable outdoor barbecue are all available for you to use. The main entrance is kitted out with all the storage space you need for a chalet-full of ski gear or hiking kit, with plenty of electric boot-heaters to dry everything out if necessary.

Relaxing

Relax in the sauna or the corner bath tub after a hard day on the slopes, or stretch out in front of the fire or the TV on the comfortable sofa in the living room. Or perhaps sit on the balcony and listen to the birdsong from the nearby forest. On a blue-sky day, the view stretches 20km, up to the peaks of the Haut de Cry and the Mont Gond, and in the other direction up to the Vallon d’Arby from where good skiers can ski home to the door. You can use the area at the top of the stairs as a second TV lounge or or play area. A number of toys and games are provided for children of different ages.

Internet

Chalet Les Marmottes is equipped with free, high-speed WIFI for your own private use.

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

Parking for 2 cars on the side road above the chalet. There are 35 steps down to the chalet in total from the parking. Winter tyres and/or snow chains required in winter due to steep access road. Contact us for railway or airport transfers.

Winter

The chalet is only 500m from the ski-route that follows the main road to the Etablons apres-ski bar and joins the main piste down to the telecabin. This ski-route is suitable for all except complete beginners, who would need to walk or drive to the beginners ski area at the Etablons apres-ski bar. The modern, high-speed telecabin 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. In good conditions, good skiers will be able to follow the tracks across the countryside to ski-in to the chalet at the end of the day.

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 chalet comes with two basic mountain bikes to allow you to begin exploring this paradise. 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.

Chalet "Les Marmottes"

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at chalet "Les Marmottes".

The chalet is located in the little town La Tzoumaz, which is part of "Savoleyre" and the "4 Vallées" ski resorts. La Tzoumaz is a quiet town with all the amenities you need.

We were kindly welcomed by "4 Vallées 4 Saisons". They offered various discounts (on ski lessons, equipement rental...) which were a substantial plus when traveling with a group.

The chalet is furnished and decorated with care. It is perfectly equipped for 10.

The living room and kitchen area is very comfortable (fireplace, huge sofa, big dining room table...) and offers a breathtaking view on the valley and mountains.

We loved the spacious ski-room, very convenient to store the equipment and shoes.

The chalet also has a sauna to relax after a day of skiing...

The slopes are easily accessible by skiing-out of the chalet (beginner-intermediate skiers) and taking the free shuttle. Ski-in is also possible.

The "4 Vallées" ski-resort is the biggest in Switzerland. You'll find slopes for all levels and great altitude restaurants. We loved the "Tzoumaz-Savoleyre" side which has a great variety of slopes.

We warmly recommend chalet "Les Marmottes" and we will not hesitate to come back !

We had a wonderful stay. The chalet itself was beautiful, clean, accommodating...

Everything we needed was available, from utensils in the kitchen, to soft blankets!

I would especially like to thank Anna, who was extremely helpful throughout the whole process: from booking to departure.

She helped us with finding the right house, and saw to all of our special demands:-) from spare freezer to double set of highchairs and baby cots.

Every request was met with a big: no problem

I would sure use your services again next year for finding a holiday house again.

In the name of the whole family, thank you again for your kindness, patience and help.

ps. a little advise: let your customers know that the chalet is not so easily accessible for baby buggies and young children.

Verbier's 4 Valleys

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…
