A newly rennovated ski chalet in the quiet village of Villette, Le Chable. The chalet is a 5 minutes walk from the bubble (ski lift) which connects with the world famous ski resort of Verbier.
Le Chable is also where the train connects to Martigny and onto Geneva and Zurich airports. It is also possible to fly into Sion during the winter.
In the winter the chalet offers excellent access to skiing and other winter sports. It is also possible to sample the nightlife of Verbier with a 15 minute taxi ride down the hill afterwards. In the summer there are many exciting activities such as mountain biking, hiking, riding and paragliding as well as more sedate activities such as swimming, walking, golf and tennis. It is also a perfect base for taking on the challenging Haute Route.
There is an excellent music festival over the summer months which attracts classical musicians and fans from all across the globe. In past years Kiri Te Kanawa was one of the stars of the festival.
The chalet is a 4 bedroom apartment which sleeps 8 but can accommodate up to 10 by special request.
There are two really large bedrooms that have each have a king size bed and a seating area. In one of these rooms there is a large double sofa bed and in the other we can put up a fold away single bed. Both of these extra beds are extremely comfortable and I have slept on them myself to test them! Both of these bedrooms have an ensuite bathroom. There are a further 2 double bedrooms which can be made up as 2 twins or a king size bed. One has an en suite and one with a family bathroom in the next room. We provide clean sheets and towels.
The chalet has a large modern kitchen with wonderful views of the mountains. There is a large dining room table which seats 8 comfortably but can be extended twice to seat up to 12 people depending on the size of your group. The spacious sitting room has a wood burning cast iron stove which creates a very cosy atmosphere and has 2 large 3 seater sofas.
There is also a lovely garden with fruit trees which can be used when the weather is nice towards the end of the ski season and also in the summer. Off street parking is also available next to the chalet.
Le Chable is a pretty village with a good community spirit. There are several shops, including 2 supermarkets, 2 pharmacies and a bakery with coffee shop, within walking distance of the chalet. There are also several restaurants to suit all budgets, again all within walking distance.
As we use the chalet as our home when we do not have guests it is very well equipped, especially the kitchen. We also have ample equipment for babies and children, including cots, high chairs, stair gates as well as sterilisers, plastic crockery and even some toys including sledges.
We are very flexible so please get in touch to plan your holiday.
Our minimum booking is 3 nights apart from Christmas, New year and February when it is a week as this is our most popular period.
