We returned from our holiday at Les Cimes on Wednesday and we had an enjoyable time. Your apartment lives up to its billing - spacious and very comfortable. The boys loved wallowing in the jacuzzi. The weather wasn't great, but the ever changing vista of mist, clouds, mountains, snow and sun, outside the window, was very memorable.
We played some tennis, did local walks when the weather permitted, saw a great fireworks display at Les Collons, and saw the sights up and down the valley. Really enjoyed Sion and Zermatt.
Had a great week in this apartment with all the details proving to be exactly as described - a rarity in our experience of ski apartments. It was in top condition and extremely well built, justifying the high spec comments in the details. A very large sitting room, well equipped modern kitchen, 2 good bathrooms, and good sized bedrooms (one with bunk beds). Also a huge veranda with views right across the valley - and the promised high spec Jacuzzi. The apartment was quiet at night being situated at the end of the row of apartments in that part of Les Collons. A small supermarket was 20-30m up the road and a very nice bar and restaurant a further 20-30m on at the start of the main village centre.
From a skiiing perspective it was the best situated apartment we have stayed in being a genuinely 50m walk to the Trabanta chairlift - a 4 person chairlift taking you straight up to the centre of the Thyon ski runs. Our 7 year old daughter had no trouble walking out of the apartment and to the chairlift each day, and also managed the run back down to the chairlift at home time. There is a ski pass office at the entrance to the chairlift making for an easy first day, and also a ski hire shop in the village.
We flew into Geneva and hired a car - very good car rental arrangements in Geneva airport and it took a little over 2 hours to get to Les Collons using the motorway around the north side of Lake Geneva. Going the other way we went round the south side of the lake - longer journey of 3 1/2 hours but actually very nice as you are on smaller roads and go right beside the lake, popping in and out of France as you go. If you have the time that is a really nice route.
All in all we would thoroughly recommend the apartment without hesitation to friends for either adult groups or families.
Our first Swiss ski vacation was a hit with all four kids, thanks to the location and being able to end each day with a dip in the jacuzzi. Great amount of space and amenities for the price. Enjoyed being within walking distance to Trabanta lift, groceries and a few eateries as well. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because of some power outages (lights in master bath stopped working after 1 day) and the bedding - specifically pillows -- need replacing. Otherwise, I can recommend without reservation. Great vacation for our family.
A very comfortable 3 bedroom apartment only about 50 metres from the lift. It has a wonderful balcony with a view to die for which you can enjoy from the Jacuzzi. The supermarket is about 1 minute's walk with a great bar/ restaurant less than 5 minutes away. The apartment has everything you might need including an efficient laundry room one floor up. I will return and recommend it without reservation.
Our ski party of six enjoyed THE most fantastic week at 1 Les Cimes. The location is perfect, with easy access to the ski lifts and local facilities including a supermarket. The panorama from the terrace was stunning, with a distant but clear view of the Matterhorn.
The apartment is extremely well appointed with good sized bedrooms, very comfortable beds - vital after a hard day on the slopes, and a well equipped kitchen/dining area for when not feasting at the local restaurants.
We were blessed with excellent snow conditions and great weather so explored the extensive ski area, pit stopping at some wonderful mountain restaurants along the way to Verbier via Veysonnaz and Nendaz.
The hot tub on the balcony was a particular highlight of our apres ski....we soaked our weary bones accompanied by the twinkling lights from across the valley and industrial strength gin and tonics! The apartment provided a tranquil, homely base to ready ourselves for more ski adventures in the wonderful Four Valley's ......I can thoroughly recommend it and hope to return soon.
Spacious, cleaner then most hospitals, kitchen a dream to cook in. Local restaurant a small walk, (10 paces) very hospitable, willing to cook of the menu and always accommodating. For non skiers great walks to local eateries.
The skiing is boundless for those wanting to travel far afield, we did three trips to Verbier and we were a very mixed bag of skiers. Always a stop at the Te epee before home!!!! cant wait for next season.
A great location right next to the Trabanta chairlift and extremely close to the the local supermarket that sells amazing chocolate croissants which my children enjoyed every morning. A very well equipped apartment with everything you need to make you feel at home. The hot-tub was a lovely bonus after a long days skiing. We were only four people but the apartment was definitely large enough for another two people. Would definitely re-book for another holiday.
