Overview

About the property

Sleeps up to 8 with stunning views, 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms

Highlights

This luxury four-bedroom, two bathroom chalet with sauna is a fantastic choice for a winter or summer holiday in the mountains. Named after the Irish word for “Up high”, you will really feel as though you are perched up high on the mountainside, with jaw-dropping views across to the distant mountains and down to the valleys below. It is facilitated for ski-in and ski-out access in winter, and is right next to the Maison de la Foret and its Five Senses Nature Trail in the summer with direct access to the start point of hundreds of kilometers of biking and hiking trails. Ideal for couples, groups and families seeking a peaceful moutain retreat with the option for plenty of action-packed activities on the doorstep.

Bedrooms & Bathrooms

The apartment sleeps up to 8 people in the four bedrooms: two have double beds, one has twin beds and the other is fitted with two bunk beds. The upstairs bathroom has a bath with overhead shower, sink and WC. Downstairs on the living floor is a sauna and a second bathroom with shower, sink and WC. If you wish to travel with children under 2 years old, just let us know and we will provide a cot and a high chair in your chalet.

Equipment

In the kitchen you will find all the basics: a fridge and an oven with hob. A kettle, microwave, toaster and coffee-machine, plus fondue and raclette sets for a traditional Swiss evening in front of the log fire. A hairdryer, iron and portable outdoor barbecue are all available for you to use and there is a washing machine and dryer available for you to use. A ski-storage area with coat hooks provides the perfect solution to storing your ski equipment, ready for the next day.

Relaxing

The sauna downstairs is a real treat at the end of a hard day on the slopes. Or you can choose to relax in the large living / dining area, watch the flat-screen TV or listen to music, or simply sit on the balcony and admire the beautiful panoramic views that face the apartment. On a blue-sky day, the view stretches 20km, up to the peaks of the Haut de Cry and the Mont Gond. The chalet grounds border a forested area, which in summer fills the air with delightful birdsong. Sitting at the garden table you can while away the hours watching the tiny cars far away in the valley as they hurry between appointments in the distant towns and cities.

Internet

Chalet Ard is equipped with free WIFI for your own private use.

Pets

We’re sorry but this is a pet-free property. Please browse our selection of pet-friendly rentals if you would like to travel with your pet.

Parking

There is space for one or two cars outside the chalet. Winter tyres and/or snow chains necessary in winter due to frequent snowfalls and the requirement to cross the two metre-wide piste in order to access the steep chalet driveway. Alternative parking is available 250m away, in a lay-by on the main road. Contact us for railway or airport transfers.

Winter

This chalet is ski-in and ski-out. The footpath at the side of the road in front of the chalet is prepared and maintained for skiers during the ski season, allowing you the luxury of skiing the 400m to the main ski piste and down to the Savoleyres telecabin and also skiing back home at the end of the day. This ski-route is suitable for all except complete beginners, who would need to walk the 400m to the beginner skiing area. The modern high-speed telecabin carries you from La Tzoumaz up to the top of the Savoleyres in less than 8 minutes, from where you can decide to ski back on the quiet La Tzoumaz slopes or ski down to Verbier’s legendary slopes and world-class off-piste opportunities in the vast 4-Valleys ski area.

We are very pleased to announce that we will be offering discounted ski-passes to everyone staying with us from Winter 2015/16. To be eligible for the 10% discount, ski-passes must be ordered and paid in full 12 days in advance of your first ski day. We accept all major credit cards. Orders received up to 2 days in advance are not eligible for the 10% discount however they will be printed for collection with your keys when you arrive in the resort. Last minute orders will be available for collection on the morning after you arrive. Discounted passes are available for all age-groups, for durations from one half-day up to 21 days, and cover the Savoleyres, Verbier or 4-Valleys sectors. The discount does not apply to the insurance options available. Ski-passes can neither be cancelled nor exchanged once they have been ordered. The discount is applicable in high, medium and low season and also applies to family rates. It is not cumulative with any other offers or reductions. On arrival in the resort we will also provide you with discount vouchers for various other services, such as ski equipment rental.

Summer

In summer, the area turns into a hiking and mountain biking paradise, with hundreds of kilometres of marked trails criss-crossing the mountains, awash with alpine flowers and a range of wildlife to spot. Chalet Ard is right next to the Maison de la Foret with its wildlife exhibitions and its Five Senses Nature Trail, along with the starting point of many beautiful hikes. The “Bisses” are relatively flat footpaths that follow the water as it trickles around the mountainsides, where for centuries farmers and villagers channelled the streams for their own uses. They have been preserved now and can be an incredible way to spend a day or more on easy hikes with stunning views across the Rhone Valley or over to the Massif des Combins. We’ll provide you with plenty of tourist information including our favourite suggestions for day trips that are easily reachable from La Tzoumaz, from spectacular gorge walks, cheese factories and roman festivals to rainy-day ideas such as underground lake tours. The road that winds up the mountain-top to the panoramic Croix-de-Coeur Cafe-Restaurant opens as soon as the snow melts and from here you can continue the drive (or cycle) all the way down into Verbier.

In the peak summer season from early July to late August, the telecabin link to Verbier operates daily from 08:45 to 12:30 and from 13:30 to 16:45, meaning that you can easily access the famous resort as a pedestrian or accompanied by your bicycle. You can even use a variety of mountain lifts to make your way up to Mont Fort at 3300m for Europe’s highest fondue and incredible mountain panoramas that include Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn. Don’t miss the Swiss National Celebrations in La Tzoumaz on August 1st, or the famous festival of live music performances, the Verbier Festival, which runs from mid-July to the beginning of August.

Marvelous with majestic views of the surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience in La Tzoumaz as well as in Switzerland itself. Chalet Ard hosted us a family with all the required needs, but most of all the views are of an indescribable emotions.

I would rate this Holiday as 200% of enjoyment, and looking forward to repeated it in the coming years.

Conveniently located chalet in La Tzoumaz/4 Vallees

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the access to Verbier and 4 Vallees from this chalet. However we would not call this a "luxury" chalet. It is a relatively new chalet with beautiful views of valley/mountains and big windows that let in lots of natural light. However, it is quite basic and small and not appropriately furnished for accommodating (8) people (especially if all adults) as it claimed. We were (4) adults and (4) kids ranging in age from 10 - 15 yrs. old. There was one couch that could you could squeeze (4) people onto and (2) side chairs. That left (2) people sitting on hard tile floor or at dining room table in order to all be together. Owner should consider getting some bean bags or comfortable floor pillows to allow up to (8) people to enjoy fireplace/living room area or better yet, rearrange floor plan so another love seat type of sofa can be included. Also the chalet wasn't outfitted as promised (there was no microwave, no coffeemaker and the TV wasn't working on arrival) however the chalet management agency quickly addressed these issues and provided the needed appliances by first evening and fixed the TV within 12 hours. We also alerted the chalet manager that the house was not cleaned well at all upon our arrival - they did not have any comment or reaction to our feedback. There was hair on the toilets, the sinks and faucets dirty with toothpaste, smudges, etc, toothpaste marks all over the bathroom tiles, kitchen counters not properly wiped down from previous renters, dust and dirt under beds and furniture, glasses in cabinet that had lip marks and dirt on them. We spent over 2 hours re-cleaning the entire chalet upon our arrival on Saturday - vacuuming, dusting, cleaning sinks/tubs, tiles, toilets, mirrors, fridge and inside kitchen cabinets. We even had to throw out food left in the fridge by previous renters that had expired. We also had to wipe down all the dirty light switches, kitchen cabinet knobs and TV remotes. We are not sure what the owner did to clean the chalet from previous renters but it was really a terrible sloppy job. The chalet was cleaner when we left after a week than when we arrived. This cleaning should NOT have to be done by anyone renting a chalet, especially one that claims to be a "luxury" chalet. Owner should also consider providing better lighting in all rooms, especially the bedrooms as the lighting is too dim. Last bit of feedback is chalet needs more drinking glasses to accommodate (8) people.

sehr schönes chalet

  • 4 of 5

Ein sehr schönes chalet, sehr komfortabel 4 Schlafzimmer, Kamin und Sauna und das Wichtigste direkt am Ziehweg zum Lift.

Eignet sich hervorragend für Selbstversorger, kein Frühstückservice möglich. Wir hatten sehr sehr viel Schnee, der auch weg geräumt werden mußte,

also sportliche Betätigung (neben Skifahren) gab es reichlich. Kleines Minus: für das Entsorgen unseres Hausbafalls mußte ich zusätzlich 40 Franken bezahlen.

Owner's Response: Lieber Goran, Es freut uns, dass Sie den Aufenthalt im Chalet Ard inmitten von so viel Schnee genossen haben. Wir fragen alle unsere Gäste, dass sie den Abfall/Recycling in den von der Gemeinde zur Verfügung gestellten Behältern entsorgen. Auf Wunsch, so wie in Ihrem Fall, entsorgen wir den Abfall aber auch gerne für unsere Gäste. Wir freuen uns darauf, Sie bald wieder in La Tzoumaz zu sehen.

Chalet Ard review

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Chalet Ard in March anad had a fantastic holiday. The chalet has everything one could need in terms of comfort, facilities and location. I particularly liked the sauna. The views across the valley are stunning. All in all we were very reluctant to leave and can't wait to go back again.

Charmant chalet aux vues magnifiques

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans ce très joli chalet d'où l'on partait et revenait ski aux pieds.

Le chalet lui même est conforme aux photos et descriptions, très agréable, chaleureux, spacieux. La Tzoumaz est une petite station très agréable au milieu de l'immense domaine des 4 vallées, sa localisation est très bonne dans le domaine skiable.

L'agence qui gère le chalet (4vallées4saisons) est particulièrement aux petits soins pour les vacanciers, extrêmement prévenante, et se met en quatre pour que tout le séjour se passe du mieux possible. Par exemple, après que nous avons signalé le matin même qu'il n'y avait pas d'appareil à raclette dans le chalet, le soir même une personne de l'agence est venue nous en apporter une au chalet.

La commande des forfaits en avance, qui vous évite la queue aux caisses est très appréciable également.

Gemütliches Haus mit tollem Blick, aber mangelnde Sauberkeit und nicht komplette/defekte Ausstattung

  • 3 of 5

Tolle Lage, schönes gemütliches Haus, das zum Entspannen und beisammen sein einlädt. Wir sind aber von Anfang an und danach während des gesamten Aufenthalts immer wieder auf mangelnde Sauberkeit gestossen: tote Fliegen auf dem Fußboden, Mäuseneste in den Möbeln, verstopfte Trockner und Staubsauger, dreckige ecken und Schubladen. Es machte den Eibdruck, dass seit längerem nicht richtig gründlich geputzt wurde. Die Kücheneinrichtung war nicht komplett und einige Lampen waren defekt. Am Anfang haben wir uns noch beschwert wegen der Mäusenester und wurden mit einer Flasche Wein als Gutmachung beschenkt. Mit dem Rest haben wir uns aber arrangiert, da wir keine Lust hatten, uns wegen jeder neuen Sache zu beschweren.

Verbier's 4 Valleys

The versatile resort of La Tzoumaz is nestled just over the back of Verbier’s Mount Savoleyres with access to all of the famous Verbier 4-Valleys slopes and off-piste areas in winter. In summer, the mountains become a paradisaical network of hiking trails and mountain-bike routes, with something for every taste. From La Tzoumaz you can ride the same legendary pistes and powder bowls, but accommodation prices are only a fraction of those in Verbier itself! Every property is prepared to high standards and each has a stunning panoramic view of the mountains and valley. The resort is only 1h45 from Geneva Airport, and transfers can be arranged on request. We live in the resort year-round and are on hand to welcome you on your arrival and to help you with anything you might need to know or arrange, whether before, during or after your stay. If we’re not in the office, we’ll gladly take your call even if we’re out enjoying the biking, hiking or skiing for ourselves…
