The Swiss Alps region
Situated only 90 minutes from Geneva, Champéry offers postcard Swiss village charm with preserved architecture, a flourishing restaurant scene and direct access to Les Portes du Soleil - the world’s largest international ski domain with 194 ski lifts and 90 on-piste restaurants. One of Champéry’s key features is its easy access to Les Portes du Soleil’s incredible network of ski lifts, making Champéry a top ski and mountain bike destination. Regardless of the season, each day offers a new safari for skiers, hikers and mountain bike enthusiasts of all levels.
The village itself is also another attraction. The main street features beautifully kept wood chalets with tantalizing storefronts and eating establishments and the village is small enough to keep everything within walking distance. Overlooking Champéry are the 7 spectacular peaks of Les Dents du Midi which rival the Matterhorn and the Eiger in natural beauty. In recent years, an influx of young and dynamic chefs has made Champéry’s restaurant scene one of the best kept culinary secrets of the Alps.
This follows the path of 90 on-piste restaurants throughout Les Portes du Soleil which for years have been delighting discerning guests and food critics alike. A specially created Pass Gourmet guidebook highlights the best local specialties. Also centrally located is Champéry’s Palladium (National Ice Sports Centre) with fitness centre, indoor pool, skating and curling rinks as well as outdoor pool, clay tennis and beach volleyball courts.
Swiss Portes du Soleil
During the high-season, the Tourism Office organises diverse activities including guided hikes and walks, an award-winning Via Ferrata, and breakfast on a Swiss alpine farm with demonstrations of traditional cheese-making. Folkloric activities and festivals abound as do activities for children. With the staggering, jagged beauty of Les Dents du Midi mountains as a backdrop, the village's chalets, hotels, bars and restaurants offer both a delightful sanctuary and a warm welcome to any visitor

"Superbly appointed apartment"
Very spacious and superbly appointed apartment in a large modern chalet. Everything you could wish for has been provided and great care has been taken with the quality of the furniture and fittings. Good location right by the sports complex and a short walk to the main street with bars and restaurants. Covered and secure parking is a bonus.
We will definitely go again!

"A beautiful apartment, perfectly located."
The Chalet des Amis are located a couple of minutes walk from the cable car, sports centre and local shops, which made this a fantastic place to stay.
Our chalet was beautifully designed and the furnishings were exceptional. The chalet more than catered for our needs, as we had access to LCD TVs and a games console, wireless internet, a plethora of board games and communal games room so there was always something to keep us busy in the evening.

"Perfect location and superbly equipped accommodation"
We stayed in Chalet des Amis for a week towards the end of the season in 2010. The chalet is a stone's throw from the frequent and quick cable car taking you right to one of the main access points for the brilliant Portes du Soleil region. Even on the last day of the season we skied the entire day. Right next door is a good sized swimming pool, ice-skating and chance to try curling, which sadly we didn't get around to doing.
The apartment is equipped to an impeccably high standard with everything you need and more. Both teenage boys made full use of the huge TV, playstation 3 and music system.... and we all enjoyed the log fire.
The kitchen has everything from a Nespreso machine to a set of Global knives making cooking easy and pleasurable... we only ate out one night in 6.... Add to all that, very comfortable beds, superb power showers, a bath for aching muscles and ample space for everyone not to fall out. This apartment provided the base for an excellent holiday and we thought great value too. We plan to visit during the summer months to explore the area without snow.

I stayed here as part of a private party of fathers who were having some time away from their families, doing their thing! The apartment is spacious and beautifully appointed in a modern chalet some 7 minutes walk away from the funicular. It is in tip top condition with high end furnishing throughout and great hi fi/T.V kit. Highly recommended. T.T Harpenden, Hertfordshire

"Refined Property in Refined Resort"
This is a very well equipped, spotless and stylish apartment ideally located close to the all year sports centre and a short walk to the cable car or village centre.
The apartment is light, contemporary (no pine!), with a large L shaped kitchen, dining, living area with an open fire and large TV with UK channels. Garage parking is an asset if visiting in winter.
Champery is a charming, attractive, understated village (this is not Verbier!) with the centre a short walk up from the property. There are excellent restaurants (including Le Nord where the beef tartare is a must and c21) and quality shops.
For skiers, access to and from the slopes is via the cable car. If those with a preference for ski-in ski-out are apprehensive, don't be. Because of the short walk from the property - it works surprisingly well. Once up in the Champery ski area, the French border, Avoriaz and the rest of the Portes Du Soleil are only a couple of lifts away. For a classic, long, ski lunch don't miss the Terrasse at Les Lindarets.
Having visited in the winter, a summer visit is very tempting as it's clear that the village is geared up for activities including walking and biking and the apartment would be a great base.
