This luxury five-bedroom chalet is a rare treat in La Tzoumaz - ski-in and ski-out access, and an easy walk to the town centre! From the moment the automatic garage door opens to allow you into the snow-free underground parking, everything has been designed with skiers in mind: the parking is linked first to the chalet and then to the piste by a 70m shuttle cabin on rails that easily climbs the near-vertical mountainside, so that you don’t have to! This is what makes Chalet Sapin Argente ski-in ski-out. No more struggling onto a ski-bus with arms full of children’s skis and poles, and no need to walk around in your ski-boots. There’s also no need to clear snow from your car in the mornings as you can just park it indoors and forget about it until it’s time to go home. In fact, you really don’t need a car if you’re staying here in the winter. Due to its elevated position, Chalet Sapin Argente benefits from fantastic views across the valley and to the mountains up to 20km away. The large windows of the open living / dining area were specially designed to make the most of this ever-changing vista.
Bedrooms & Bathrooms
With its five bedrooms and three bathrooms, this chalet is ideal for up to 10 people. Downstairs are two bedrooms (one double and one twin) and a bathroom with bath, overhead shower, sink and WC. Upstairs there are two further double bedrooms, a twin bedroom, and a bathroom with bath and overhead shower, sink and WC. The third bathroom is on the main living floor and consists of a shower cubicle, sink and WC. 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 apartment.
The main floor of the chalet is an open kitchen/living/dining area. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you might need for catering for two families, including oven, vitroceramic hob, dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster, electric filter coffee machine, Nespresso coffee machine, fridge-freezer and separate freezer. There are fondue and raclette sets for a traditional Swiss evening in front of the log fire. Washing machine, hairdryer, iron and portable outdoor barbecue are all available for you to use.
At the end of a ski day, you can stop off at the Bar des Etablons for an apres-ski vin chaud, then ski home the last 250m to the shuttle cabin. Once inside, you’ll really appreciate the underfloor heating throughout the chalet, but that might not stop you from lighting the fire to add to the cosy glow of an alpine evening overlooking the village and the surrounding snow-capped mountains. There is a TV in the living room, and in one of the bedrooms there is a DVD-player with a selection of DVDs to choose from and a PlayStation. If you want to head out to one of the resort bars or restaurants, you can just take the shuttle cabin down to the parking level and walk 5 or 10 minutes to the town centre. If you fancy a day off from skiing, you won’t be bored because the luge piste runs past the chalet alongside the piste - you can use your lift pass to ride up to the top of the Savoleyres telecabin with your sledge. Please note that its better to rent a sturdy one from the resort as there are 10km of sledge runs between the top of the telecabin and the chalet!
Chalet Sapin Argente is equipped with free, high-speed WIFI for your own private use.
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.
There is one parking space in the shared underground car-park on the premises. From here, a shuttle cabin carries you 30m uphill to the chalet. Should you travel with more than one car, additional parking is available only 150m away, in a lay-by on the main road. Car not necessary in winter due to proximity to ski-lifts, restaurants and supermarket. Contact us for railway or airport transfers.
This chalet is ski-in and ski-out (and sledge-in and sledge-out)! During the ski season, you only have to step into the shuttle cabin by the chalet door and you are carried the 40m uphill to the piste. From here you only need to ski (or sledge) 300m down the main piste and you arrive at the Savoleyres telecabin. At the end of the last run of the day, don’t forget to stop before the end and hop into the shuttle cabin to be carried the last 40m to your door. The main piste is not accessible to complete beginners, who would need to walk the 300m to the ski-school meeting point at the telecabin. 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.
Everyone staying with us has access to discounted skipasses. Here are the conditions for 2018/19: To be eligible for the full 15% discount, ski-passes must be ordered and paid in full 14 days in advance of your first ski day via the 4vallees4saisons site. We accept all major credit cards. All advance-purchase passes will be printed for collection with your keys when you arrive in the resort. Discounted passes are available for all age-groups, for durations from one day up to 21 consecutive days, and cover the Savoleyres, Verbier or 4-Valleys sectors in both high and low season. The discount is not cumulative with any other offers or reductions and does not apply to the insurance options available. Ski-passes can neither be cancelled nor exchanged once they have been ordered. After booking we will also provide you with discount opportunities for various other services, including 10% off ski lessons and 15% off ski equipment rental.
In the peak summer season (from early July to late August), we provide you with free VIP pedestrian lift-passes, half-price mountain-bike daypasses and a range of other discounts. The telecabin link to Verbier operates daily at this time of year 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.
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. Visit the Maison de la Foret with its wildlife exhibitions and its Five Senses Nature Trail, and the starting point of many beautiful hikes. 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. 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.
