The Swiss Alps region
The winter skiing season lasts from approximately mid December to mid April. This is variable from year to year. The high altitudes & glaciers of Verbier can be reached there & back in a day by a good skier, where the snow may last longer. The region is famous for its extensive vineyards growing down in the Rhone valley - the largest in Switzerland. This valley is very fertile with extensive fruit & vegetable production - apricots in particular below Veysonnaz.
In summer & autumn the adjacent valleys, Val D'Herens & Val de L'Annivers are fun to explore, with villages perched precariously on mountain ledges and spectacular roads though tunnels & across ravines. Across the Rhone,in the Bernese Alps, bare & rocky, can be found lakes and secluded areas which can be reached by driving though massive tunnels blasted through the rock.
Sion, the oldest town in Switzerland, has expanded over the years but in the area below the 2 castles are found cobbled streets & medieval houses. There are also art galleries & museums. It is possible to fly direct to Sion during the winter months from Stansted airport.
In Martigny there is the Foundation Pierre Gianadda art gallery.
A huge benefit of this area is that sunshine is guaranteed for over 300 days of the year. Situated between 2 mountain ranges it is considered the driest area in Switzerland.
Veysonnaz old village is a charming alpine village overlooking the Rhone valley & Bernese Alps. The new village was built later around the ski station which is part of the 4 valleys ski area which includes the large resort of Verbier. During the winter season it is possible to ski, do giant slalom, snowboard, participate in snowblade competitions, ski safaris, nightime torch descents, walking on snowshoes Ski school is available for both adults & children. Paragliding can also be arranged.
In summer the area is idyllic for a number of activities, all of which provide endless opportunity to take in the amazing scenery of both Veysonnaz and the surrounding Valais region. There are over 300km of well marked walking routes. Many of them are on gentle slopes, the 'Bisses', which were the irrigation channels mostly built centuries ago. Many opportunities for more testing walks & mountaineering in the area.
Mountain biking over 70 km terrain broken into 5 different routes. There are 6 golf courses in the area. Paragliding & horse riding are also available.
During the last weekend in June visitors can enjoy the traditional "cow fights" & the yearly ritual of the farmers moving their cattle to higher pastures. The wild flowers in the meadows during June are beautiful & higher up the mountains in July. It is also an ideal place for artists, photographers & botanists.

"A perfect "White Christmas" in a beautiful Chalet!"
We have returned from our Christmas break in Chalet Cretta Mour, of which can be described in only one word - "Magical".
The chalet was just perfect, and it far surpassed our already high expectations. It was clean, comfortable, cosy, homely and with views over the mountains to die for.
The Skiing was also superb having had lots of recent snowfall. My family and I were sad to leave and would return in a heartbeat!
Sincere thanks for letting the chalet to us which has provided us all with a Christmas to remember for many years!
