Location description from owner

The Swiss Alps region

Lying in the French speaking Canton of Valais Champex-Lac is ideally located for easy access to both the French and Italian Alps. The canton of Valais produces some of the best wine in Switzerland and is renown for its cuisine.

Champex-Lac is a traditional mountain village sitting at a height of 1500 mts nestling in the shadow of the mountain of "La Breya". However it is only a 20 minute drive to the historic town of Martigny that contains the ruins of a roman amphitheatre, the world famous Pierre Gianadda Foundation as well as street cafes and restaurants.

An idyllic and tranquil retreat high up in the Swiss mountains, Champex Lac offers a picturesque village surrounded by woods. It is an ideal location to wind down from the pressures of the modern world. This beautiful Swiss village has a range of bars and restaurants for a morning coffee and croissant or a relaxing meal with a glass of local wine. If you feel like stretching your legs you can stroll around the lake or take one of the dozens of local walking paths that are varied enough to suit all levels of ability. Champex Lac is a wonderful place for families who can hire boats, use the lake side play park, swim, play tennis, cycle and in the winter skate on the lake, downhill ski or ski de fond.It is also in a close proximity to many of the most popular resorts in Swtizerland, it is only 20 minutes from Le Chable, the village below Verbier (35 mins drive).From here you can get the Ruinette bubble onto the four valley slopes, accessing almost 500km of skiing.

Champex

Champex-Lac is a wonderful sports ground both in summer and winter and it is a peaceful holiday spot for families or couples regardless of age!
The lake is the focal point of the village adding summer activities such as rowing, swimming, pedalos and fishing to the array of winder activities.
Plenty of skiing options above 2000m provide a reliable snow cover.

There is plenty of wonderful sightseeing within an hours drive, including historic castles, botanical gardens, internationally reputed art galleries and music festivals, shopping, golf, mountain biking, sailing, boat trips on lac lemain, excellent cuisine, wine tasting and thermal baths.

Champex is well served with restaurants, bars, a small supermarket, 2 boulangeries and a chacuterie. There is also a sports shop which sells & rents ski/hiking/climbing equipment. Internet facilities are available at one of the hotels. A branch of the Swiss ski school operates in the village in the winter & guides can be organised from Maison du Sport Verbier. Champex never fails to captivate its visitors who leave touched by its charm & refreshed by its tranquillity.

Champex provides excellent skiing opportunities for all levels & is best recommended for beginners, intermediates, families and skiiers looking for challenging offpiste and tree skiing. The ski touring is particulary good. The pisted areas are served by 4 lifts and covers 25km of varied uncrowded terrain, from a level of 2,200m at La Breya. Its north facing aspect provides a long season with good quality snow that many south facing resorts lack late in the season. Skiiers from nearby resorts, such as Verbier come to Champex to enjoy the uncrowded off piste where fresh snow can be found long after a snow fall.

With the purchase of a Valais Ski Card, and a driving time of approximately 30 mins, the extensive areas of the 4 valleys and the Grand St Bernand area can be accessed from Verbier (via Le Chable) and Super St Bernard, with the latter offering excellent off piste possibilities. Within an hours drive, the Swiss Port du Soleil and the Chamonix Valley can also be enjoyed.

“Wonderful location, great apartment.”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2014

Loved the apartment and wow the location is fantastic - it's like living in a postcard! So much to do and see in Champex and the surrounding area, we all had a wonderful time. Many thanks.

“Magnificent views”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2014

I stayed together with my girlfriend in the apartment just at the beginning of the summer season in the Alps. Prepared for any weather conditions we decided to rent a flat instead of booking a hotel. Having to spend a rainy day in a small hotel room was the last thing we wanted during our short holiday break. The apartment turned out to be a perfect solution for our needs. It's located in the very center of Champex-Lac, just vis-a-vis the grocery store, post office, ATM, tourist information and a moment away from multiple restaurants. As vivid hikers we were also very happy with the number of routes available in the area. Champex-Lac is part of the Hikers Haute Route. However, the real highlight of the property is the amazing view of the lake opening just in front of the windows of the living room. Having the opportunity to start each and every day with a view like that was already a fantastic treat. Besides that, the flat is very well equipped in all kitchen appliances, it has a spacious living room with a TV and a DVD recorder, two bathrooms and two bedrooms (master with a bathroom attached). What's important a fast Wi-Fi connection is included and available. Ah, and not to forget a huge balcony with plenty of space to rest comfortably after long day hiking and enjoy the sunset. Besides maybe the pillows being a bit hard, we wouldn't be able to find any downsides of this stay and can honestly recommend it. We are very much looking forward to coming back.

“A superb place to come home to after a day hiking in the mountains”

Reviewed 19 Sep 2013

If you want a luxury apartment in Champex, comfortable and spacious and with a wonderful view of the lake, then this is a must.

“A fantastic summer week in the Swiss mountains”

Reviewed 17 Aug 2012

An excellent apartment with great views. Spacious for our family with 3 grown up children. Everything was at a high standard as I guess you would expect in Switzerland. I really can't fault it at all.

“A fantastic well equipped apartment in beautiful Alpine setting”

Reviewed 30 Aug 2011

For those seeking a high quality apartment in an idyllic Alpine setting then this is the location you have been looking for. My wife and I stayed at this apartment last year for a week in August and could not wait to come back this year. The apartment is well appointed with modern furnishing and fittings. In terms of location within Champex it could not be better situated with 5 restaurants within 100 yards. There is also a small supermarket opposite. Being right on the lakeside there is always something to watch from the balcony. There is a lovely 1 mile walk around the lake and many other footpaths to explore for the keen walker. For those who want to travel further afield then Sion, Verbier, Grand St Bernard Pass, Mont Blanc and many other places all within an hour’s drive. There is every likelihood we will be back next year.

“Accommodation - High Standard”

Reviewed 20 Aug 2011

The appartment was well equipped, comfortable and very clean. The appartment block was located in the centre of Champex with a beautiful view overlooking the lake. Our main concern was that we did not have anyone to meet and greet us which would have made settling in much more straight forward. One other small disappointment was that the advertised wi-fi internet access was not available. Otherwise we would highly recommend the accommodation.
