“Lovely Chalet, Beautiful Views” We stayed for a week in March with a group of friends. The chalet is a up a small road past the Tracouet lift station. If it is snowing or there is a lot of snow on the ground it is advisable to use chains or have a four wheel drive.
The chalet has a large living area with floor to ceiling views out across the Sion valley. Quite stunning views of the mountains on the other side. There is a wrap around balcony to enjoy the view from outside as well.
All the bedrooms are large and airy with adequate storage for a weeks skiing gear.
The entrance area on the ground floor has a very handy boot & ski storage area.
A fantastic place to stay to enjoy the huge range of skiing available in the 4 Valleys area. I would recommend Bar Bob on the Alpage piste for a Apres Ski drink before the short ski back to the chalet.

Things to do in Valais
You could spend a month-long holiday in Valais and never run out of things to do in this part of Switzerland. Up-close and from afar, the Matterhorn in Zermatt fascinates visitors from around the world. Take photos of the majestic mountain from a distance or look it right in the eye by ascending nearby Klein Matterhorn for a ski run down the slopes. During the winter, the snow-covered mountains are the main attraction and visitors will want to spend as much time skiing or snowboarding as possible.
If you visit the region during the warmer months, explore some of the 8,000 marked hiking trails in the area. Trails range in difficulty and pass through quiet forests, picturesque vineyards, and other beautiful landscapes. Other great warm weather activities include taking a tour of Tourbillon Castle in Sion and venturing out on an unforgettable guided walk along the Great Aletsch Glacier, the largest glacier in the Alps.
Food and drink in Valais
Eat and drink well during your stay in Valais. Whether you choose to pick up local ingredients to prepare in the comfort of your holiday rental, or you make plans to eat out there is something for everyone. Raclette du Valais has long been a favorite in the area and the warm cheese tastes good on a cold evening. Indulge your sweet tooth with Swiss chocolate from Chocolaterie Laderach in Zermatt. Finally, don't forget to enjoy the wine in Valais. The combination of different types of grapes, lots of sun and the pure waters of the Alps make for delicious wine.

*The Best Chalet in Zermatt Voted by Conde Nast* - Chalet Grace - 5 Bedrooms
We Loved Every Minute
We recently stayed in Chalet Grace and loved every minute. We had the most amazing time in Zermatt. We have been before in the Winter time to ski but this time we travelled in the Summer time. We loved hiking every day and my sons went Mountain Biking which they loved. I must say that Zermatt really is a wonderful place to visit in both Summer and Winter time. Our family really enjoyed our stay. The chalet is perfect for us and was beautiful decorated. The wellness area was a real bonus and we enjoyed several spa treatments during our stay. I hope to return again one day. …
WINNER OF BEST CHALET IN THE WORLD - CHALET LES ANGES - BEST RATES GUARANTEED
Amazing Chalet with Great Staff
We stayed at Les Anges and booked through Exceptional Villas. Julie our concierge was fantastic I would highly recommend using Julie to book your restaurants in advance. It made life so much easier for us. The chalet was really stunning, we loved the location and the view of the Matterhorn was very impressive. My wife and I especially liked not having to cook and having a wonderful team of staff preparing gourmet meals was such a treat. We especially loved the afternoon tea by the fire after a morning Skiing. I cannot wait to return to Zermatt and stay here again. …

La Foret Apartment With Magnificent Mountain Views And Close To All Facilities
Walker's paradise! Family friendly. Amazing views!
Summer Holiday review – just spent a lovely week based in La Foret, the apartment is very comfortable and the views are just amazing from the lounge and the balcony, the mountains are bigger than the photos, we had fun watching a few thunderstorms passing through. The train journey from Geneva to Sion is very scenic and relaxing. If you like walking there is so much to do in and around Nendaz. Local walks (pine cone path is lovely) and beyond. We got a 4 day lift pass and went up to Tracouet from the nearby Nendaz Telecabine which is well worth a day out. Also you can catch a bus from there to nearby Siviez where there are lots of cable car/lift options to take you up and then you can choose from an abundance of paths or simply enjoy the views. My top tip, get really fit before you go! Lots to do for families in Nendaz with sports and the open air swimming pool is lovely after a day out walking or just to relax by. The funicular opposite the Telecabine is very handy for getting up and down the hill! Recommend the Co-op supermarket and La Cantina restaurant at the bottom of the hill, great for a hearty meal after a long walk and friendly staff. You could stay here for months and not run out of things to do if you like exploring and walking. …
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. …
