“Wow - what a view!” We would thoroughly recommend this as an ideal place to stay in the mountains. My wife, 1 year old daughter and I stayed at Arc-en-Ciel for a skiing holiday with a group of friends and their families and had a fantastic time. It is the perfect chalet for groups of friends or big families. It was always cosy and warm and had a great real log fire place too. It has plenty of space in the living area with a lovely big dining table with room for all, perfect for our group to eat, drink and socialise after a day on the slopes. The kitchen is very well equipped and we made full use of this, taking turns to cook every night. The extensive TV and video library had something for everyone as well as the games and books provided by the owners.
The accommodation was fantastic including comfortable beds and good bathrooms. The 1st and 2nd floors provide the balconies with the most amazing panoramic views of the mountains opposite and the valley below. It really felt like a 360 degree view of the Alps!
The slopes are within walking distance and then you can ski to the main lift in Nendaz from where you can explore the 4 vallees. It took a few attempts to negotiate the ski-in route back to the chalet from the piste but this only made it more fun! There was a good room for storing all the ski-equipment each night so it was ready for action the next day. The area around the chalet is great for the kids to sledge down and play in.
The village is close by for a night out on the town and the supermarkets are easily accessible by car to stock up on essentials. There are also bars and restaurants within walking distance but we tended to stay in the chalet during the evening, playing cards, watching films and drinking wine once the kids were in bed!
The property can be a little challenging to find initially (especially in the dark) but this is only because of its position to give it the amazing views, and they are worth it! A 4x4 is definitely recommended during the ski season.
“A nice place to have a perfect skiing week” the appartment is very nice and well equiped; you have a beautiful room on the top floor.
A wonderful view on the mountains and you have just to walk to reach the gondola and the alpine ski runs.
You have alpine birds who come to eat seeds on the wood balcony during the journey.
Grimentz is a very traditional switzerland village with a good snow quality( north position).
“Lovely well equipped apartment” Lovely apartment situated very close to the cable car. We ate in every night as it was so well equipped and it was a pleasure to sit on the balcony and take in the lovely views. Fresh bread and croissants were availbable from reception every day which was also very useful. The beds were comfortable and the the rooms were clean. I was very surprised how lovely the apartment was for the money - it was very good value
“Modern, spacious chalet” We travelled as a family with two children aged 10 and 12 and had the in-laws visiting. The chalet is modern, clean and very comfortable. We enjoyed all the amenities such as TV, wifi etc. The ski bus stops just outside the door, the ski hire shop is just up the road and there is a variety of skiing terrain to explore. The views from the chalet are beautiful and parking is very easy. Can highly recommend it and we are planning to stay there again.
“Stunning, modern chalet in Nendaz” We stayed at Chalet Chambord with six friends in March this year and we could not have picked a more perfect place for chilling out after skiing. The chalet is newly built to a really stylish, modern look and it feels quite luxe but homey at the same time.
The upstairs lounge/dining/kitchen area is large and open-plan, with floor to ceiling windows offering stunning views - an amazing backdrop to your breakfast time! The space is perfect for getting together to cook a big meal which we did many times.
The chalet is in a very quiet location with beautiful views. The best part had to be the hot tub outside with mountain views. That part was possibly better than the skiing itself!
Overall, we had an amazing time and the chalet exceeded all of our expectations - we can't wait to go again!

Characterised by majestic mountains, cool lakes, gorgeous countryside and stunning valleys, the Swiss Alps are a beautiful destination for those who love the outdoors.

When to visit the Swiss Alps
When you should visit the Swiss Alps depends on your preferred activities while on holiday. If you want to spend snowy days out on the slopes, visit from December to March.

Things to do in Swiss Alps
Situated in the heart of Switzerland, the Swiss Alps is a vast and wildly popular alpine destination for travellers from around the world. During the warmer months, enjoy the fresh air while exploring the classic Swiss scenery. In Verbier, get your bearings by taking a guided bike tour through the mountains. Leave straight from your Swiss chalet and bike through the area until you're ready for wine and cheese at one of the bars in Verbier. If you're feeling adventurous, go paragliding in Locarno or climb to the top of the imposing surrounding mountains. Lake Lugano is another wonderful warm-weather destination in the Swiss Alps and taking a boat cruise across the lake is a must.
If you're visiting during the winter, take a ski or snowboard lesson at the Premier Alpine Centre in Nendaz. Afterwards, test your skills on the slopes of legendary mountains in the Swiss Alps. Davos is the highest city in Europe and has five incredible spots for skiing. In Zermatt, which sits at the base of the famed Matterhorn, ascend the mountain via cable car, funicular or gondola for awe-inspiring panoramic views.

Apartment Bon Sejour LATE DEALS - 50m from lifts
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! …
Traditional, Luxurious Swiss Chalet
Gorgeous and very cosy chalet.
Beatiful chalet with a very warm feel. We stayed here with another family and found it spacious and comfortable for us all especially as it has 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms all of which were kept to a very high standard. The chalet was lovely and warm and gave you a cosy feel in the evenings...perfect for enjoying a coffee and playing card games with friends! Getting there from Geneva airport was so easy as was getting about on the train which stopped right outside the chalet. The thermal baths were only a short walk away which both us adulds and kids enjoyed so much. We would love to come back and stay again! …
Great flat, fantastic skiing
I booked this accommodation for a family skiing holiday. Kieren was very helpful in booking our skiiing lessons and equipment, always prompt with his communication and very polite.
The flat is in a shared chalet, it has an underground car park, but access is via a steep slope so in the snow you'll struggle to get out .
The flat is really well equipped, plenty of everything, after a day on the slopes we were all ready to crash and watch a DVD.
There are 3 bedrooms - mattresses are a bit firm for my liking, and 2 bathrooms one with a bath and the other with a walk-in shower.
The flat is 5 mins walk from the ski chair lift, but you can also drive down and park next to the lift. Morgins is pretty quiet, a couple of super markets and a few restaurants. However, a quick ride down to Chatel in France which is a much more lively place.
As for the skiing, Morgins is part of Portes du Soleil region, it's a great location for all levels.
We all really enjoyed our stay here and will definitely be looking to stay again. …
Comfortable, spacious and well-organised
While we did not get our original apartment due to an admin mishap, Guy seemlessly upgraded us to another, bigger, lovely apartment, and between them him and Becky were very helpful in terms of organisation and tips. I would definitely go back. …
Luxury Chalet with hot tub near lifts and village
We recently stayed at Chalet Nicola for a 7 night break as a party of 16 people - 8 adults and 8 children.
The chalet is amazing and exceeded all of our expectations. It is very spacious, extremely well equipped and the facilities are superb.
The steep hill up to the chalet could be a little challenging but the stunning views more than compensated for this.
I can not think of anything negative to say and would strongly recommend this accommodation. Hopefully we will have the opportunity to visit again. …
Stayed before - everything very good
We have stayed before. Owner very friendly, accommodating and professional. Would defiantly stay again. Leukerbad is a fantastic village with everything you need within walking distance or on a free bus. Super place …
