The Swiss Alps region
Champex-Lac is a hidden gem of a place nestled in the Swiss Alps in the canton of Valais. Valais is a canton of extremes and contrast from the snowy mountain peaks to the dry summer heat of flat bottomed Rhone Valley.
Of course this is a region of out door activities but aside from skiing and walking there are so many other reasons to visit. For those with a young family a trip to the Saint Bernards Dog Museum in Martigny is a must. Martigny is also a cultural centre with several museums, an art gallery, sculpture park and Roman Ampitheatre.
For wine drinkers Valais is a pure delight as Vineyards flank the sides of the Rhone Valley and the local wines of Fendant and Dole are a real treat. There is even a Michelin Star restaurant in Orsiere which is well worth a visit (those in the know visit the inexpensive family friendly brasserie next door).
Skiing can be found on the doorstep within the village whilst nearby Verbier and the Four Valleys offer extensive pistes.
In the summer there is boating on the lake. The village communal tennis court and swimming pool are also within walking distance (subject to local opening hours).
Valais is also a region of natural mineral Spas perfect for a days relaxation and pampering.
The village has several restaurants, a couple of bakeries and few local shops. For your food shopping there is a also a small and well stocked supermarket. With several large supermarkets in Martigny.

"Champex Lac, a gem in the Alps"
My wife and I spent a memorable week in this wonderful location. The apartment was well equiped with every appliance, tastefully furnished in Alpine style and comfortable in the extreme. The balcony overlooked the lake and even in late September we were able to dine on the balcony. Champex has lots of nice restaurants including one in the building next door. Local walks in stunning scenery proved refeshing. Our Autumn holiday was great; we plan to return to Champex and use this apartment for a winter ski and snowshoeing break
Thank you for your review and hope to see you again next season!
