About Chris Beresford
I was born in 1961, and I grew up in Solihull in the West Midlands, UK,. I moved down to London in 1993 and I have lived in Highbury, Islington ever since. I work as a volunteer Independent Visitor to children in the care of the Local Authority, and I also do mentoring work with young people. I am also self-employed and run a property portfolio in London, and do some property development too. I started skiing late in life when I was 34 and was instantly hooked.
Chris Beresford purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Chris Beresford chose Nendaz
I chose this Duplex Penthouse apartment as it occupies the entire top floor (penthouse level 5) and half of the floor below of a substantially built East / West facing building right in the centre of the village, with panoramic views over the Sports centre one way and down the valley towards Sion when looking the other. Apart from the vast open plan lounge and kitchen which is great for a communal meal, or for just sitting in front of the fire in the winer after a hard days skiing, there are also 3 very large balconies that serve the lounge and all four bedrooms, which are so relaxing to be on, particularly in the summer. I really value space in a holiday home, and the 4 double bedrooms and 2 main bathrooms (+1 ensuite) , enable guests to spread out and have their own space when they need it. There is a large supermarket on the ground floor of the building, accessed by a lift, meaning that shopping couldn't be easier. I also like to have bars and restaurants on hand without having to walk anywhere or use the car.
What makes this Apartment unique
A log fire at night is a luxury and this apartment has a fantastic fireplace in the louge which is a focal point when enjoying your apres-ski drink. There is a private outdoor car park that up to two cars can use ; three balconies with the main one being west facing which captures the sun all afternoon right up to sun-set. The central village location is ideal, and a passenger lift just across the car park takes you to the top of the village where the main telecabine is to be found (the Tracouet) linking you to the Four Valleys ski domain. There is a heated ski / boot room in the basement for added convenience. The apartment is only a half hour bus ride from Sion train station with links to Sion airport just up the road. There are direct winter flights from the UK to Sion in the ski season which cuts out the need to travel from Geneva.

Nice stay in the cenre of Nendaz
Well equipped appartement. Great location and easy access. Chris was always helpful and uncomplicated. Thank you!
Stayed here many times, still fabulous.
Great Location, Clean and tidy central accommodation with birds eye view of Ice hockey rink from balcony. Really enjoyed it. We have stayed many times over the years and still go back which speaks for itself.
Excellent very central to the town and easy to find.
The apartment is superb with car parking our stay was over Christmas and did not want for anything the apartment has all the equipment . All the shops are open 6/7 days and very good restraunts. The cable car station is only 5 min walk.
Great location, peaceful
Nice apartment, great location. Really enjoyed Nendaz and surrounding areas.
Spacious, well equipped and centrally located penthouse
Getting there: The apartment, and key collection are both easy to find. Really easy experience collecting the key, with helpful host.
Location: This really is one of the best locations in Nendaz. This is the first time we'd been to the village to ski, and looking at maps etc before we went, it's hard to judge where you want to be. You won't be disappointed. Above a supermarket, opposite bars, restaurants, and 50metres from the lift which takes you to the bottom for the main gondola up to Nendaz. Overlooking the icerink, there's always something going on, but no issues with noise, Nendaz is a quiet resort, especially out of school holidays, so we weren't bothered by street noise at all.
Equipment: We cooked most nights, and the appliances and equipment are plenty to be able to cater for yourself. Large Fridge etc made storage very easy. The added benefit of washing machine and dryer made holidaying with two young children, and lots of smelly ski wear very easy.
Comfort: The pictures don't do this place justice. The living area is spacious, and all beds and rooms are comfortable, with plenty of storage. If you are thinking about this place for small children, I'd recommend taking a stair gate, just for piece of mind when upstairs.
Delightful apartment and well located
We went for a walking holiday and had a super time using the apartment as a base.
