In winter, Ski in - Ski out from our comfortable 5 person apartment, located
directly opposite the ski lifts in the historic alpine village of Grimentz, in Val d'Anniviers, where the ski pass provides access to over 220km of well-maintained pistes, snow parks and acres of terrific off-piste.
The stunning views, lack of queues, excellent snow record and uncrowded slopes are only part of what makes Grimentz so special. Add the warm welcome and great service you will receive from the villagers who run the resort and you are certain to have a great holiday.
In summer Val D'Anniviers is transformed into a paradise for walkers, cyclists and for those who appreciate great mountain scenery, amazing wild flowers, or just a more tranquil time enjoying the unique historic villages and mountain cafés. The main cable cars and local buses are free (with Liberte pass) for up to 4 people and provide a great way to explore. (NOTE.Liberte Passes are a Tourist Office provision and availability is subject to the Tourist Office policy)

Our well equipped 'new' kitchen includes dishwasher, microwave, induction hob, fan oven, fridge, food processor, kettle, Nespresso and filter coffee makers, fondue set, weighing scales and other baking equipment. There is china and cutlery for at least 15 people, so it will certainly be enough for 5 people for several meals.
There are two balconies, facing west and east which together give 360 degree views of the mountains, both with chairs and table. The main bedroom has a 6' bed, the 2nd bedroom provides two single beds and there is a sofa bed in the living area as well as two other sofas.

Or why not explore the old village with its 15th century sunburnt wooden buildings or use the cable cars to reach a ski café where you can enjoy the amazing panoramic view; over coffee or whilst sampling the home made food.

“Excellent location and well equipped apartment”
Shirley’s apartment is really a fantastic find and is ideally located for m the ski lifts and the runs. It is located right in the center of the village. Shirley is extremely helpful and gives o… More
“Great apartment, great location!”
The apartment is really conveniently located, opposite the ski lifts for Grimentz and the connecting gondola for Zinal, very close to shops and restaurants. The apartment itself is very well equipped, nothing was missing, its very clean and cosy and has a good layout for a family of 5. The balconies on either side provide a nice view (great spot for watching the fireworks on New Year's Eve!) Underground parking and ski room also really convenient. The hosts were fantastic in their communications, Shirley provided us with lots of information prior to arrival, including a snow report, and answered all our questions really quickly. We will definitely be back, thank you so much!
Owner's reply: We are so pleased that this family appreciated the convenient location and layout of our apartment as well as the high standard of cleanliness that we provide. It is also good to know that they found it to be well equipped and comfortable as we aim to make it easy for our guests to enjoy their holiday. Particularly, we make it easy to cook and “eat-in” by providing a comprehensive range of kitchen equipment and our toys and games should keep all ages entertained once they return after a day’s skiing. Because we visit Grimentz ourselves several times each year we are able to advise our guests on how to get the most from their holidays and as these guests hope to return they obviously had a great time.
“Comfortable apartment close to ski lifts and shops”
We have recently returned from a family walking holiday. The flat is ideally situated and comfortable for a family of 4 - it had the best equipped kitchen that we have rented. Shops, restaurants, sk… More
Owner's reply: We are so pleased that this family had such a great time and used the free cable cars and free local buses for their walking holiday. It is good to know that our travel and walking guides and other advice were appreciated and helped them to get the most from their time in Grimentz. We want our guests to be able to enjoy every aspect of their holiday and so we think a well-equipped kitchen adds to the fun of trying out the local delicacies and eating in, or outside on one of our two balconies! We look forward to sharing Val d'Anniviers with them for a future holiday.
“Scenic and very central location well equipped chalet”
The best thing about this place is its location-convenient for just about everything: the lifts, the buses, the bars and restaurants and the coop! Everthing was on our doorstep. The appartment is wel… More
Owner's reply: These guests share our enthusiasm for the "active yet relaxing" holiday that Val d'Anniviers provides. We are delighted also that our apartment's central location and amenities added to their summer holiday. We hope that they will return to check out just how spectacular it is in winter as well as summer.
“Fantastic apartment, excellent location and very helpful owners ......”
This was our first skiing trip and we weren't quite sure what to expect. Although Shirley and Robin had thoroughly briefed us, we were thrilled with what we found! The village of Grimentz is pict… More
Owner's reply: It sounds like these guests had a great holiday staying in our apartment and really appreciated the facilities and advice we provide. They wish to return to Grimentz and also want to continue skiing, so we are looking forward to welcoming them to Apartment Bon Sejour for their next ski trip.
“Wonderful Apartment, Fantastic Location”
From the moment we arrived until the moment we left Apartment Bon Sejour our stay in this marvellous location was a pleasure. Throughout the booking and organisation the owners had responded quickly … More
Owner's reply: We are so pleased that these guests appreciated the amenities we provide in Apartment Bon Sejour as well as the stunning scenery, activities and wider facilities that are available in Val d'Anniviers. We really enjoy providing a comfortable holiday base for our guests and in giving them information that will help them get the most from their holiday. What better recommendation can we have than their wish to return for a future holiday!
“Your really cannot do much better than this place...”
I can go on and on about how wonderful this apartment is. But this would end up as a rambling review. Its so good that we rebooked it for the following year. The headlines are: Cons: 1) Its not a luxury apartment (but really a sensible apartment for families) 2) Cannot do washing (but we are in Switzerland, who have laws as to when it can be operated) Pros: 1) The apartment is clean, well equipped, comfortable and well laid out. 2) The proximity to the gondola (its less than 50m to the escalator) 3) The owners are amazingly caring, helpful and friendly 4) Unlimited wifi 5) Has a DVD player and a stock of dvds for the down times 6) Has ski/boot room in the basement 7) Very conveniently located for supermarkets, butchers and patisserie Only suggestion: Upgrade the DVD player to Blu Ray.
Owner's reply: Great to know how much this family likes our apartment. As they say it has everything you need close by, it is really comfortable and designed for use by families. We note the comment about upgrading the DVD player to BluRay and are already looking to do this. The drying line and numerous towel rails in the heated bathroom easily cope with any hand washing - and also there is a laundrette in the village. We look forward to this family coming back to ski in Grimentz and staying in our apartment.
“This apartment was very comfortable, well equipped and extremely convenient for the gondolas”
This was an excellent rental apartment, very comfortable and well equipped. The location being so close to the ski lifts was extremely welcomed after a hard day skiing and it was not noisy in the eve… More
Owner's reply: We are so pleased this family had a great time staying in our apartment and that they appreciated that it is family' friendly, including being so close to the gondolas and the piste. That they want to come back is the best recommendation!
“Perfect base for hiking”
Very well appointed apartment. Best equipped apartment we've ever experienced. Everything we needed in kitchen, cupboards contained everything from TV, CDs , DVDs Sellotape, even a gadget to repl… More
Owner's reply: These visitors made the most of what Grimentz and our apartment provide and we are so pleased. Even more of a recommendation for Apartment Bon Sejour is that this was their second holiday in our apartment. We try to enable our visitors to get the most out of their stay by sending information about travel, walks and other activities and facilities when they book. We also have a link with the local supermarket so that a 'renter' can pre-order and arrive to find their starter pack of food in the apartment, so no rushing around shopping on the first day. Instead, you can spend your time exploring the village, riding the 'free' cable car or sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine (from your supermarket order!).
“A beautiful appartment in a wonderful location”
We thoroughly enjoyed a week walking in this picturesque area with the most spectacular scenery and amazing flowers and butterflies. The apartment is extremely comfortable and the information provided… More
Owner's reply: Once again, visitors have been charmed by what Grimentz offers and also appreciated the comforts of our apartment and our advice on what to do and how to travel. The train journey to Grimentz along Lake Geneva and then on the PostBus up to Grimentz is, we feel, part of the amazing holiday experience that Grimentz provides. When the public transport is so good, and there is free use of the local buses in the summer it is so easy to have a car free holiday and yet still explore new places.
