The Swiss Alps region
The Valais area of Switzerland is justifiably famous for the majestic mountain peaks that dominate the views in all directions and the Rhone Valley that cuts through its centre. The area contains many summer and winter resorts that are famous the world over - Zermatt (nestling beneath the Matterhorn), Saas-Fee, Crans-Montana and Verbier to name but a few. The extensive four valleys ski area starts with the Verbier region in the west and runs to Thyon and Les Collons in the east, ecompassing both Nendaz, Siviez and Veysonnaz along the way. Providing over 400 kms of piste and skiing/boarding for every level of ability, it is a winter sports dream destination.
With over 300 days' sunshine a year, the french-speaking Lower Valais area is famous for its orchards, market gardens and vineyards, as well as numerous picturesque villages and towns. With Lake Geneva in the west and Martigny to Brig (the gateway to Italy) and the world heritage site of the Alestch glacier in the east, the Valais area has something for everyone, all year round.
Nendaz, at 1300 - 1450 metres high (with peaks rising to 3300m behind it) is a cosy winter sports resort based in a traditional mountain village, on a plateau, in a convenient position with beautiful views, Nendaz shares the same ski area as Verbier - but without the Verbier prices! There are currently 83 lifts and 90 pistes with about 410km of piste. Nendaz has its own ski area which links into the Four Valleys or you can head up to Siviez at the crossroads of the ski domain and explore it from there. It takes just 20 minutes to ski from Verbier back to Siviez at the end of the day. The skiing runs from mid December to late April most years. There are a number of ski schools teaching both skiing and snowboarding, and all have English speaking instructors on hand. Snow shoe excursions, cross country skiing and toboganning are also popular here. There are creche facilites for children during the ski season.
Besides all the winter sports activities you would expect in one of Switzerland's premier ski domains (the Four Valleys), Nendaz is a mountain-bikers' and walkers' paradise, with many kilometres of marked trails from virtually outside the door of the chalet. The area is famous for its bisse walks, rambles alongside the little irrigation channels that wind their way round the mountains, as well as a range of other mountain tracks. The bike routes cover all levels of difficulty and are well signposted in Nendaz and the surrounding area. The area also offers thermal baths and a spa in nearby Ovronnaz, horse riding, golf in Sion (or further afield in Verbier or Crans Montana, both championship courses), boat trips on Lake Geneva (40 minutes away) and sightseeing in Sion (the old medieval town is worth seeing and there's a great Friday market), Martigny (Roman ruins and museums) and further afield. Nendaz is also internationally famous for its annual Alphorn festival, held in late July/early August each year.
There is a full dossier of places to visit and things to do in the chalet along with guidebooks and maps.
There are a range of facilities In the resort: supermarkets, butchers, boutiques, post office, banks, restaurants, bars, disco, sports/itness centre, sauna, massage, plus children's playground, chemists and doctors. In summer there's a delightful open-air pool with views across the Rhone valley and tennis courts. In winter, there's an artificial ice rink for skating and ice hockey. Nearby Siviez has squash courts.
Nendaz has been given a child friendly award by the tourist board for summer and winter activities eg a Robin Hood excursion in the summer months and ski kindergarten in the winter.
