The resort of Haute-Nendaz is directly above the old village of Basse-Nendaz, which is itself above Sion in the valley. The resort is situated on a sunny plateau/terrace at between 1300m and 1500m, it has panoramic views of the Bernese and Vaud Alps. In winter it forms part of the 4-Vallées, one of the most extensive ski areas in Europe and by far the largest in Switzerland.
On the back of the Nendaz (Tracouet) mountain are a large number of superb 1000 year old larch trees on the Prarion slopes (locals claim that some even date to BC). Considering the height and weather extremes they have faced, these trees are quite extraordinary and walking past them in summer or skiing in winter adds a sense of dimension to the experience.
Location applies equally well in the mountains if not more so. Nendaz came out as a winner for us for the following reasons:
- Easy access from Geneva Airport with its many regular and cheap flights
- Public transport access without car (very rare in the French / Swiss Alps)
- Close enough to enable long weekends
- Central to other attractions and days out (i.e. Milan, Geneva, Bern, Zermatt, Chamonix,
Lausanne, Montreux, Wengen, Davos, etc ........)
- Significant local Nendaz population of over 5,000 - this compares with only 2,200 in Verbier.
- an all year resort where you can always get a croissant, good nosh and beer even out of season!
- Great views, in fact they are truly stunning!
- Not too high for it to be barren and freezing but high enough to ensure snow cover in winter
- Great skiing on and off piste (in this case the largest area in Switzerland)
- Culturally Swiss
- Language Swiss-French rather than Swiss-German (Latin approach to life)
- Ideal for local wine tasting and visits to spas (spa in Ovronnaz is particularly spectacular)
- Great walks, cycling, swimming, golfing and sports facilities in summer
- Guaranteed hot and sunny weather during summer months
- Outdoor swimming pool with spectacular views
- Close to Swiss, Italian and French (Annecy) Lakes
English-speaking representative on hand to answer any questions when picking up keys.
As X-mas falls on a Saturday this year, Chalet Campanella is available from 18th (Saturday) till 26th (Sunday) December, both dates inclusive. This is an extra day for free ie eight (8) days for the normal cost of seven (7)
The Swiss Alps region
A wonderful region which will pull you back again and again.
Very family friendly, local amenities in Nendaz and nearby includes access to miles and miles of marked walks (bisses) and mountain bike trails rated according to length and difficulty and always leading to terrific mountain restaurants, football, tennis, outdoor heated swimming pool with spectacular views, golf courses, horse riding, fishing, climbing, the spa at Ovronnaz at over 5,000ft is wonderful, summer outdoor markets, great shops and supermarkets, not to mention the historical castle and battlements overlooking the wonderful busy town of Sion , the Roman amphitheatre in Martigny is worth a visit and many, many more places to visit such as Chamonix, Montreaux, the Matterhorn, the Eiger, etc .......
All of the above and we haven't even mentioned the Mont Fort and 4 Valley skiiing area, which is Switzerland's largest and one of only a few select areas worldwide that is allocated 5 stars for excellence.

Switzerland is train mad and makes it as attractive as possible to get people out of their cars and on to trains. Therefore there are great deals and offers to be had. Check out the Swiss Railways SBB web site but in brief you can get half price or unlimited travel during 3 days out of 30 etc. definitely worth thinking about if you plan on doing a trip to Zermatt or to the lake etc.
Friendly people, spectacular scenery, regular festivals throughout summer and winter, waterslide parks within 40 minutes drive, vineyards, apricot trees, Italy and France at either end of the valley, the Eiger, Matterhorn, Mont Blanc, longest glacier, largest underground lake in Europe, spas at 5,000ft, trains to Milan, Geneva, etc ...., great road system.
Sion is the sunniest city in Switzerland with guaranteed historical sunshine of 300 days each year, minimum.
Please enquire for more specific details of local places to visit, activities, attractions and details of festivals in the area.
