The Swiss Alps region
Valais has the highest mountain peaks in Switzerland, with many over 4,000 metres. It is well known for its year round mild climate, which provides marvellous conditions for winter skiing and spring/summer/autumn hiking. In addition to Leukerbad, well known resorts in the area include Zermatt, Verbier and Crans-Montana.
The Rhone valley is the best know wine centre of Switzerland, with vineyards climbing the hillsides. Apricots grow abundantly in late summer.
Leukerbad is a hot-spring spa-town nestling in the mountain at the end of the Dala valley, situated at over 1,400m (4,600ft). It is an all-season resort due to its clear blue skies and sunny climate averaging over 300 days per year.
Europe's largest health spas are located within easy walking distance of the apartment. The two spas are open year round and cater to all tastes, indoor and outdoor pools, sauna and steam baths, massages and beauticians. The town is fed by springs serving 51°C mineral water, which is mixed with the pure cool mountain waters to create the pools of varying temperatures. For full details please click on this link:
Leukerbad is a centre for skiing in the winter and hiking during all other seasons. Two cable cars take you from the town, the Gemmi lift takes you to the Gemmi pass and the Torrent lift up to downhill ski-fields; both lifts climbing to 2,350m.
Leukerbad in Summer
There are hundreds of kilometres of trails heading out from Leukerbad, both for hiking and mountain bike riding, suitable for all standards, from very easy to most challenging. Two sets of ladders, one on the way to Albinen and the other towards Varen add interest to the hikes.
From the Torrent lift one can rent giant scooters, which can be ridden back down to the town. The Gemmi has just opened a new viewing platform, hanging out over a 300m drop, with views down to the town and over the Rhone valley towards the Matterhorn. Leukerbad has one of the most challenging Via Ferratas in Europe.
Don't miss the Shepherds' Festival on the last Sunday in July at the top of the Gemmi. Around the Daubensee there are festivities from 10.00 o'clock onward.
Winter in Leukerbad
Whether it is downhill or cross-country skiing, ski-touring, snow-boarding, snowshoeing, tobogganing, ice-skating or curling; Leukerbad has it all! The Torrent lift station is 200m from the apartment, which takes you up to the ski-fields. The apartment has separate storage facilities for skis and other winter equipment.
Year Round in Leukerbad
The Sportsarena offers tennis, badminton and mini golf and in the winter ice skating and curling.
There are many restaurants, with indoor and outdoor seating, within easy walking distance of the apartment, offering a wide variety of menus to choose from. Local specialities include dry-cured meats, alpine cheeses, fondues and raclette.
Wine-tasting is available at a number of outlets in the town and in addition there are free wine-tasting trips, where one can visit the vineyards and the vintners' cellars, whist sampling the local wines.
There are many events organised by the town, from concerts in the church, alpine music weekends in the restaurants and exhibits at the local gallery, which change monthly.

"Very comfortable apartment in a lovely village with fantastic views."
I spent a wonderful week with my husband and two teenage children in this very comfortable apartment in Leukerbad in August 2013. We absolutely loved this apartment - the setting, the fantastic views… More

"Lovely apartment and great location."
My girfriend I stayed here during the first week of September. We travelled from the UK across the plains of France from Calais. It took us about 10 hours including stops and so the apartment is easily accessed from France and the UK if you plan to take the car. As you drive up the valley Les Naturelles is one of the first apartment blocks that you see as you come into Leukerbad. It is dead easy to find! The gentleman on reception spoke several languages and was very friendly and accomodating. He explained all sorts of information about the apartment and Leukerbad itself which was really helpful. The apartment itself was immaculate and the views from the balcony were stunning. You could easily sit there all day with a glass of wine. The apartment was really spacious and well equipped, making it easy to cook meals in the kitchen etc. WiFi access was easy to sort out. The beds and bedding all sorted out on arrival meant it felt more like a hotel than a self-catering apartment! Our stay was made much easier by not having the onus of cleaning the apartment at the end. I was impressed with the underground car parking. Given we had driven so far it was good to know that our car was secure at night! We found Leukerbad itself to be very quaint. A mixture of languages seem to be spoken and knowing a little French and German will put you at an advantage. If you are driving down and staying for over a week then it is worth taking some essentials with you. The supermarkets in town are well stocked but more expensive than the hypermarkets down in the valley or France. A trip up the Gemmi and Torrent Bahn's are well worth undertaking even if hillwalking isn't your thing. There are well laid trails which mean you can access well located cafe's and restaurants for refreshments etc. Overall, a great apartment in a stunning location!

"So Swiss, so perfect"
Tucked away at the end of a valley and surrounded by mountains, Leukerbad sits in a perfectly idyllic position. We discovered this place in the late 90's and have been coming back ever since.Les … More

"Wonderful spacious apartment, beautiful views, highly recommended."
This apartment is fantastic, from the extremely helpful staff on reception to the very comfy beds, the whole experience was great. if you want a base for walking around breathtaking scenery then this is the place. Actually calling it a base is doing it an injustice because you could quite easily just sit on the balcony all day. Great town, fantastic apartment. Ridiculous that you can get that standard of property in a place like that for less than a week in a shabby caravan over here.
