The Valais region

Diversity in every aspect of life is what makes Switzerland such an interesting place to visit. Its four official languages reflect its diversity of culture, as does its wide range of traditional customs.

Switzerland has an excellent tourist infrastructure, catering for a range of interests. In addition to its stunning geography and its alpine sports, Switzerland boasts a thriving arts scene, with its architects in particular achieving world-wide acclaim. Art, theatre, film and music play a big part in Swiss life and there are many exhibitions and festivals of international repute to enjoy. Wellness holidays are a big attraction as an alternative or supplement to the traditional alpine sports.

The canton of Valais, which is situated in the south west of Switzerland, is a fascinating land of contrasts blessed with an exceptionally mild climate, where the number of sunny days per year is well above the national average. This enchanting "holiday kingdom" is situated at the heart of the Alps, stretching from the gleaming waters of the Rhône at its centre to the legendary mountain peaks that never fail to entice skier, mountaineers and charm nature lovers. The beauty of the region is enhanced by the subtle interaction of ice and sun, of North and South.

Valais is steeped in history and culture and is home to the Montreux Jazz festival. The world renown Gianadda Foundation is situated Martigny, which also houses many art galleries and museums. Some of the best skiing in the world is found in the west Valais region, accommodating skiers of all levels. For relaxation and serenity at any time of the year, there are a number of wellness facilities throughout the canton, with the nearest to Champex-Lac situated at Saillon, some 25 mins by car. For those seeking an active non winter holiday, a variety of sports can be enjoyed, including golf, mountain biking, rafting, canyoning, sailing, paragliding, Walkers can enjoy the long hiking season from March to November and the more extreme athletes can participate in the Mont Blanc Marathon, a 3 day run through the mountains which goes through Champex-Lac.

Champex

Champex is quite unique - its stunning location gives the sense of unspoilt wilderness yet benefits from its proximity to the Rhone Valley, France and Italy. Its offers many possibilities for a fantastic all year round holiday, from peace and tranquillity to action packed mountain sports.

Further information on the resort and its activities can be viewed on "www.champex.ch" & "www.champex.info" where you will also find a photo library.

Skiing in the winter and walking in the summer are the traditional past times, but there is so much more to enjoy. The scenery is breathtaking and there is much to explore and enjoy - there is something for everyone.

There is plenty of wonderful sightseeing within an hours drive, including historic castles, botanical gardens, internationally reputed art galleries and music festivals, shopping, golf, mountain biking, sailing, boat trips on lac lemain, excellent cuisine, wine tasting and thermal baths.

Champex is well served with restaurants, bars, a small supermarket, 2 boulangeries and a chacuterie. There is also a sports shop which sells and rents ski/hiking/climbing equipment. Internet facilities are available at one of the hotels. A branch of the Swiss ski school operates in the village in the winter & guides can be organised from Maison du Sport Verbier. Champex never fails to captivate its visitors who leave touched by its charm & refreshed by its tranquillity.

Champex provides excellent skiing opportunities for all levels and is best recommended for beginners, intermediates, families and skiiers looking for challenging offpiste and tree skiing. The ski touring is particulary good. The pisted areas are served by 4 lifts and covers 25km of varied uncrowded terrain, from a level of 2,200m at La Breya. Its north facing aspect provides a long season with good quality snow that many south facing resorts lack late in the season. Skiiers from nearby resorts, such as Verbier come to Champex to enjoy the uncrowded off piste where fresh snow can be found long after a snow fall.

With the purchase of a Valais Ski Card, and a driving time of approximately 30 mins, the extensive areas of the 4 valleys and the Grand St Bernand area can be accessed from Verbier (via Le Chable) and Super St Bernard, with the latter offering excellent off piste possibilities. Within an hours drive, the Swiss Port du Soleil and the Chamonix Valley can also be enjoyed.

"Modern, comfortable, and well equipped apartment opposite the lake"

We are a retired couple and spent 2 relaxing weeks at the end of the summer at this well equipped, modern, and spacious apartment. The apartment was clean and comfortable with a lakeview. It had good quality furnishings and appliances all well maintained, and there was excellent indoor parking with a private elevator to the apartment.
We took long walks around the lake practically every day, and we also went on day trips both by car and by train from Orsiers where we parked the car for the day.
The owner was very accommodating and the agent, Fanny, met us upon our arrival and took us to the apartment and was very helpful throughout our stay.
Everything was perfect.

Hi there - thank you so much for the great review - I really appreciate it. Regards, Miguel

"wonderful apartment overlooking a stunning mountain lake"

A beautiful, spacious, well maintained apartment with stunning views from the balconies. The alpine village and the surrounding areas of Champex-Lac are a walkers paradise. Champex is well positioned for the Western Rhone valley, Chamonix and St Bernard Pass, also within a 20 minute drive of Martigny which is a very pleasant town with plentiful amenities.
