Domaine des Reines B7
Apartment | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 5
This recently constructed apartment (2008) affords high quality accommodation in the Swiss Alps. The location well suits groups with mixed abilities and degrees of obsession with winter sports (like our family), as there is good access to both the more family / novice orientated local slopes and the huge and diverse skiing of the 4 Valleys, and Haute Nendaz is a real town with an interesting centre and diverse amenities.
The apartment affords good access to skiing in the fabulous four valleys region, which can best be judged from the detailed map at https://dl.dropbox.com/u/6298982/local_map.pdf.

The Swiss Alps region
Haute Nendaz lies in the centre of Valais region of Switzerland 20-30 minutes drive up an unchallenging road from the historic town of Sion. It generally takes 2- 2.5 hours from Geneva airport by car (motorway to Sion in 1.5 to 2 hours then 30 mins. up the mountain), and only a little longer by train to Sion then Post Bus or Taxi. There is also a limited range of direct flights to Sion operated by Swiss International Air Lines.
Haute Nendaz is very attractive in its own right as a holiday destination, but is also known as a less expensive more family-orientated place to stay well located within the extensive 4 Valleys / Verbier ski area.
The apartment is well located for skiing. I have made a map to show its proximity to the slopes (at https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/6298982/local_map.pdf).
Nendaz is located at the centre of the extensive 4 Valleys / Verbier ski area. Ascending to 3300m, the area has an excellent snow record and the 412km of pistes offers skiing for all levels. Nendaz has the “Families Welcome” accreditation. The local slopes (Tracouet) offer comfortable 'safe' skiing in a very attractive environment with a fine restaurant. There is a local ski pass available and a range of reductions for children and families. For intermediates there are a few red runs which, being North facing, keep the snow well. For experts there is wonderful uncrowded black and off-piste skiing under the Plan du Fou.
Importantly, there is excellent access to Siviez/Tortin by ski, bus, or car (fastest at ~20mins), which is probably at the heart of the best skiing in the area. One can take lifts to Mont Fort or Verbier or head East towards Veysonez and Les Collins, affording a fantastic choice of terrain, aspect and snow conditions.
With a car its also practical to ski days in nearby resorts.

I'm glad you enjoyed your holiday. The new Mer du Glace complex with its lift, spa, ski centre and restaurants has definitely added to the our enjoyment too.

"Great, but not quite what it said it was"
It is a lovely appartment, and the loving areas and bedrooms are spacious. HOwever...to say the pool was part of the complex is true...but it is also a 5 minute outdoor walk from the apartment to the … More
I've updated the description to indicate that the private pool/sauna is shared among the buildings that make up the Domaine Des Reines. I'm less sure how to respond to the point about the single bed- I suppose we have only ever had children use it. I'll test it next time I'm there.
