About the property

5 bedroom, 4 bathroom beautifully designed chalet close to lift & village

We built Chalet Alexia as a home from home to enjoy with our family and friends. Having stayed in many chalets in the past we had some fairly clear criteria;??

- Room for two families but with own sense of space

- Endless hot water, powerful showers and absolutely no queuing for the bathroom

- Comfortable beds and crisp white sheets

- Big table for long dinners, board games and cards

- Huge log fire and sofa's you don't want to leave

- Spoilt for choice with Books, DVDs and Games

- Someone available to cook when you are tired

- Cot, high chair and toys

- Close to Geneva

- Walking distance from the lift

- Large and varied ski terrain

We’re pretty pleased with our second home and hope you love it too.

Living and playing

Built in 2012, the chalet accommodates ten people in luxurious comfort. It has three bedrooms and two bathrooms on the lower floor and two bedrooms and two bathrooms on the upper floor. In the middle floor is a wonderful double height living / dining / kitchen area with a big open stone fireplace. Large windows look across the valley and open onto the spacious balcony and terrace. Facing the dining table, the large cooking island is the perfect spot for the social cook. The kitchen is well equipped with all mod-cons such as a Nespresso coffee machine, conventional and microwave oven, dishwasher and American fridge. There are also two high chairs for the kids. Overlooking the living area, the mezzanine has an iMac computer and WiFi, IPOD docking station, widescreen TV and Wii and the chalet is well stocked with books, dvd's, toys and games providing varied entertainment for all ages.

Relaxing and sleeping

If it's peace and quite you're after then the sauna is the place to relax. And ensuring a good night’s sleep, comfortable boxspring beds are made-up for your arrival with crisp percale cotton sheets Most beds can be arranged as either twin or double to suit your needs. Soft bathrobes, hairdryers and large towels complete the focus on quality and comfort. For those holidaying with small children a travel cot and linen is available.

Sking and boarding

The ski room has plenty of room for you to store your ski’s, snowboards, boots, jackets, hats and gloves!

Useful to know

Underfloor heating runs throughout the chalet. The utility room has washing / drying / ironing facilities.

Family focused

La Tzoumaz, on the other side of the crest from Verbier, is a quiet family focused resort amidst the wonderful skiing of the four valleys. The village has a small natural ice-rink, outdoor tennis court, indoor swimming pool, playground, creche, 12km winter hiking trails and 13km snowshoe trails. Additionally in the Riddes valley there are beautiful thermal baths. A handful of restaurants are within walking distance of the chalet including one who can deliver a catered dinner for the evening. The village also has a newsagent, baker, PROXI supermarket for essential provisions, cash machine and of course the compulsory ski-hire / bike-hire shops.

A skiers paradise

Set at the 4 Vallées, La Tzoumaz offers you an extraordinary skiing paradise. The resort has 40km of piste on snow-sure north facing slopes where it is possible to ski until the end of April. In just nine minutes, the La Tzoumaz telecabin takes you to the top of Savolyeres, 2,354 meters above sea level, where a wide variety of ski tows, chair lifts and cable-cars, provide connections to other resorts in the 4 Valleys region. Together with Verbier, Nendaz, Veysonnaz, La Tzoumaz form one of the largest ski areas in Switzerland offering over 400 km of runs and 100 lift installations. With a length of 10 km and a difference of 848 min altitude, La Tzoumaz’s famous toboggan run is extremely long and fairly fast!. Tobogganing events are held each Friday and Saturday full moon in January, February and March including fondue at the mountain restaurant in Savoleyres. The La Tzoumaz ski school runs lessons every day of the winter season. Full details about lift prices, ski lessons and weekly ski courses are detailed on the Tzoumaz booking portal. Heli skiing is available at Croix de Coeurs, the alpine peak located between La Tzoumaz and Verbier.

Getting to the slopes

Chalet Alexia is most practical if you have a car. The chalet is located 300m below the lift and the village. It's a challenging walk up hill with your skis - not easy for children, but doable for adults. Good skiers can then ski back from the pistes to the front door. If you're not up for the walk, the easiest way is to drive to the large parking located above the children's ski school, park the car and ski down to the lift. You can then ski back to the car at the end of the day.

About Justine van Buttingha Wichers

We are a Dutch English family and live in the Netherlands. We built Chalet Alexia as a second home and now spend as much of our holidays - summer and winter - enjoying all that the mountains have to offer.

Justine van Buttingha Wichers purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Justine van Buttingha Wichers chose 4 Valleys

We chose La Tzoumaz and this plot specifically as we have friends in the village with similar aged children - so every day is holiday.

What makes this chalet unique

The peace and quiet, the climb up the hill to the bakers, the stars at night, the cows roaming the meadows and the AMAZING ski area.

Look no further this Chalet is the ideal!

  • 5 of 5

Cannot recommend this Chalet enough. It's not often that a place lives up to its online profile and in fact exceeds ones expectations.  

Before booking Chalet Alexia, I undertook extensive research of Chalet options across Switzerland, Austria, France and even the US. We were a group of 7 adults (from Australia) who stayed for a week over Christmas 2016. We were looking for a beautiful and cost effective self-catering chalet, that did not compromise on style, space or location. This Chalet eclipsed all others that we were considering, including offering the rarity of double-bed configured rooms with accompanying ensuites. We felt very much at home at the Chalet and there were many praiseworthy comments made about the space, the design, thought and quality of the fit out and decorating style. If and when we return, it will be to this Chalet and I have no hesitations in recommending this Chalet to others.

We've previously holidayed at La Tzoumaz and Veysonnaz (also in the 4 vallees region) and actually prefer La Tzoumaz.  Although we didn't get any snow while we were there we felt very fortunate to have so much snow up the mountain which more than fulfilled our skiing needs.  In fact, the sunshine and blue skies made for perfect skiing conditions for us.

The 4saisons4vallees office (who manage the Chalet) were responsive, easy to find and easy to liaise with, including helping us to organise a taxi to transport us to and from the local train stations.

When enquiring about, booking and paying for the Chalet however, I appreciated that all contact was directly with the owner who was warm, prompt responding and helpful form beginning to end (including contacting us directly before our trip to offer assistance even when that is the role the 4saisons4vallees office). As we were on the other side of the world and taking a plunge, this was very reassuring.

Don't waste time looking any further, I guarantee this Chalet will not disappoint!

Sfeervol, prachtig, comfortabel, luxe, top bedden

  • 5 of 5

We hebben genoten van ons verblijf in dit fantastische chalet. Binnen komen voelt als een warme deken! Naast genieten van het huis met groot balkon en zonnige tuin kan je in de zomer er ook heerlijk op uit trekken. Met ons gezin met 4 kinderen zijn er eindeloos veel wandel mogelijkheden, klauteren en klimmen over rotsen, maar ook relaxed over paden met prachtige uitzichten. Het mooie is dat de restaurants op de berg open zijn en we iedere keer ergens gingen pauzeren voor een drankje, ijsje of lunch. We hebben ook mountainbikes gehuurd die meegaan in de lift (liften zijn de gehele dag open) en een lange tocht gemaakt met berg op en af fietsen. Fantastisch was ook de tocht berg af op een step, met wielen zo groot als de mountainbike. De step kan je na afloop gewoon beneden achterlaten; service! Verder zijn er zwembaden, buitenbad, tennisbaan, een uitdagend klimbos voor alle levels en nog veel meer. Kortom met hele gezin veel te zien en te doen. La Tzoumaz, Chalet Alexia met de bergen in de zomer zijn om van te genieten.Een vakantie om te herhalen!

Simply the best holiday we have ever had.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks over summer (July/Aug). The accommodation is just stunning. The space, location, quality, layout.....all simply perfect for a base to enjoy the alps. We were there for a mountain biking holiday - and the quality of trials both in neighbouring Verbier and La Tzoumaz were amazing.

La Tzoumaz is a lovely quiet village, with such a lovely family vibe.....our kids loved the bunkbeds - which were awesome, and the little kids den on the mezzanine floor. Equally the outside areas were simply perfect, lots of space, hammock, games, ping pong, bbq etc

Genuinely the best family holiday we have ever had, and we look forward to booking our return visit.

Thanks!

Great Chalet away from the crowds

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 10 from Malaysia and Singapore spent 9 nights at Chalet Alexia from 27th May until 6th of June 2016. The

little village of La Tzoumaz was a very quiet little village up in the mountain. Being in between seasons, We at times

felt that we were the only tourists up there.We enjoyed trekking around La Tzoumaz's many treks.

Having breakfast while overlooking the breath taking snow cap mountains was something we will never forget and who could

forget the 8am daily orchestra of bells as the cows were moved from one grazing patch to another.

The week we were there, the weather was not very predictable with showers here and there. We did however manage to visit

Zermatt and the matterhornne glacier paradise, walking along the lake in Montreux, the friday market in Sion and on a

rainy day the Nestle/Cailler Chocolate factory in Broc and Cheese Fondue in Moleson.

A bonus for us was the dressing up box that we found in the TV room,the box is filled up to the brim with wigs, snow white

gowns etc.The kids just loved dressing up as superman and playing princess.

The only downside of Chalet Alexia is that we missed our Tennis Game as the Chalet didn't have any sports channel.

On another note related to safety, we always had to make sure that our young children (under 7 years) were supervised at

all times when playing in the garden. As there is a 10 meter drop on the other side of the fence. It would probably be

safer if some sort of netting was put over the fence to make the garden a safer place for children to play.

Owner's Response: We were very excited to have a family come all the way from Malaysia and Singapore to stay in our little corner of Switzerland and I am so happy that you enjoyed it. It is indeed a magical and peaceful place. We have yet to visit two of the places that you went to - Broc & Moleson so shall add that to our own list of things to do. Thank you for the suggestion about the TV - I had no idea we did not have sports channels…but as of today we do for I have upgraded the package with the tv provider….so future guests will now benefit from you feedback. Thank you! Regarding the garden it's certainly something for us to think about. The summer is about to begin and the cows have already moved on up the mountain so now we wait until September when they had back to the valleys for our next morning orchestra wake up call. Thank you for choosing Alexia.

After a day on the sloops, we enjouyed the quiet neighbourhood. A very relaxing holiday.

We recieved in advance usefull information to prepear the stay. Thanks for everything.

Superb chalet:all modern comforts,stylish,privacy

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our family in Chalet Alexia and simply loved it. Very tastefully decorated, comfortable beds and bathrooms. Modern but also cozy. Clearly quite new and well looked after. Nothing was broken which I find is extremely rare.

Top notch appliances, huge fireplace.We have never stayed in such a comfortable place before.

The location is excellent as well. La Tzoumaz is a friendly, small village, close to the slopes, with a great ski rental shop.
