3 bedroom chalet, sleeps 6. Furnished to high standard in contemporary style.

Chalet le Joyau is a luxury 3-bedroom chalet with breathtaking views overlooking the Rhone valley. It is situated in the centre of Nendaz, just 10 minutes from the ski lifts and only 2 hours from Geneva airport.

The chalet's accommodation is on two floors. It is furnished to the highest standards in an unfussy, contemporary style and is generously equipped with everything you could need for a relaxing stay. This includes a Nespresso machine, flatscreen HDMI-TV, Blu ray and DVD player, high quality hifi with iPod dock (4th & 5th generation) and fast wifi.

Entering from the front garden, the entrance hall and cloakroom lead into a big open plan sitting/dining room and fully fitted kitchen, with windows and balconies on three sides offering stunning views over the Rhone Valley. Downstairs are the three bedrooms and main bathroom as well as the large technical area - for skis and boots and with its own access to the garden.

The chalet has three private car parking spaces including a garage, all next to the chalet.

About the Owner

We are a British family based in Switzerland with a passion for the mountains and skiing. Ros grew up in Switzerland and has been skiing in the Four Vallees ski region since she was a small child. Our son, Jake is now following in his mother's footsteps or ski tracks and like us is developing an early passion for the mountains.

In our opinion, having skied in many, many domains across Europe and America, the Four Vallees offers the best skiing we have found, which is why we bought a place here.

This home was a delight.

The Chalet le Joyau is a wonderful chalet with panoramic views of the mountains and of the valley below. It was clean, fresh and felt new. The owners' generosity in allowing renters to use the washing machine and dryer was of immeasurable help in our multiweek vacation! We walked to town for dinners, and Haute Nendaz has lots to offer as far as shops and activities, as well as several grocery stores. The owners also forwarded many brochures in electronic formats so that we could plan our activities in the area. We felt completely comfortable in emailing the owner several times and always received a quick response. Far and away the most enjoyable rental experience of our vacation! I recommend this home and these owners highly. Thanks for a wonderful time in your chalet

Great Chalet in the "French" Swiss Alps

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property, well maintained and as described. Excellent private parking. Excellent communication with the owners via email. Supermarkets and restaurants within easy walking distance, also a very nice boulangerie (bakery) close by. We enjoyed hiking, and riding the telepheriques nearby. We also enjoyed the Wednesday market in Nendaz, and the Friday market down in the valley in the town of Sion. I would recommend this chalet to a friend or relative, and would return again.

Perfect position and a wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful week away from the attentive owner sending useful info before our trip and answering all of our questions to a house that had everything you could wish for. The property is as described but the views from the balcony have to be seen first hand to do the photos justice. As a first time visitor to Switzerland the walking and views were stunning. There is so much to do both locally around Nendaz and further afield. As dog lovers we enjoyed visiting the St Bernards at the Grand St Bernard Pass (a very picturesque drive of about 1 hour). Although if the weather is kind as it was for us just about all week (25c) the sun rise at Mont Fort was unbelievable. The house itself was in a perfect position for us a short walk from the town on a quiet road. Comfy beds, handy washing machine and dryer and many more small things that made for a wonderful weeks stay. Will definitely return

A beautiful chalet

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 5 with a 6 year old boy. We had a great holiday and this beautiful chalet made our trips out even better as we knew we were ending our day in this perfect Swiss gem. The chalet was clean comfortable and well equipped. The owners were helpful and friendly and excellent to deal with. None of us had a negative word to say. We couldn't have asked for more. Thank you

Gerne wieder !!!

  • 5 of 5

Wunderschönes Chalet in guter Lage zu Nendaz (10 Gehminuten). Direkt an einer Verbindungsstrasse aber dennoch ruhig und somit auch perfekt erreichbarer Skibus. Die Ausstattung ist sehr gut,( ich habe 5 Korkenzieher gezählt, was für den Vermieter spricht :-) ) Die Vermietung und der Kontakt zu Rob und Rose ist absolut problemlos und entspannt, beide geben sich viel Mühe für einen schönen Aufenthalt. Das 4 Vallee ist fantastisch zum Skifahren, es hat für jeden geeignete Pisten. Nendaz hat uns gefallen, es bietet die koplette Infrastruktur (Läden, Spezialitäten, Restaurants, Bars...). Das Auto haben wir 1 Woche nicht gebraucht.

What a wonderful Chalet........

  • 5 of 5

Many thanks for the nice stay in your wonderful Chalet. If you allow we will be glad to return sometimes in the next year.

Had never such a well equipped Chalet before. And what a stunning view from the balcony - breathtaking.

This is a really great place to relax, or go for the different activities you can do nearby. The Chalet is also ideally located for all people, who like to explore the whole Valais. For example: it takes only 90min to drive to Saas-Fee/ Zermatt, or maybe around 60min to Lake Geneve or Evolene.

There is simply nothing to complain about, and the contact to the property owners is very kind.

Definitely 5 stars :-)

From the Owner

The view is out of this world! Perched atop a steep hill, we have an uninterrupted view across the Rhone valley to the Alps across the way, with a view stretching over 100kms from the grand muveran, les Diablerets and its glacier, all the way to the Bletschorn. Even cloudy days bring their magic, with clouds shifting like veils, revealing and concealing the landscape. At nighttime the lights of the villages and Sion city twinkle in the valley below with the galaxies and constellations in the skies above. Look carefully and you may see shooting stars! Chalet Le Joyau is really our second home. As such we have furnished and styled it for ourselves. Hopefully you will find that it is stylish and comfortable rather than being a bland and characterless rental property. We let the chalet out at reasonable rates so that we can share it with other, like-minded, people who we hope will love it as much as we do. We always love to hear your stories and feedback, and - even better - photos of you and your family and friends enjoying the beautiful region.

Nendaz is one of the best kept secrets in the Swiss Alps. It lies at the centre of the world class Verbier - 4 valleys ski area with guaranteed snow cover throughout the whole network.

Nendaz and the surrounding area is an all year-round resort. From mountain biking or walking on the high alpine passes through to relaxing by the open-air pool or thermal spas and exploring the many local vineyards, there is something for all the family throughout the year.

Other Activities: spa baths, vineyards and wine tasting

Ski: With 92 different lifts serving 412 km of marked runs (and a wealth of off-piste), there's plenty in the 4 Valleys to keep skiers and boarders of all abilities occupied for many a season. The more demanding terrain is in the southern part of the ski area, which is as easily accessible from Nendaz as it is from its more famous neighbour, Verbier. The un-pisted itinerary runs from Mont-Fort (3330m) and Mont-Gelé, and the Tortin and Gentianes routes, all demand respect from the experienced skier.

To the north are the gentler, groomed pistes above Veysonnaz and Thyon - although the 1km vertical descent down the red from Ethérolla to Mayens-De-L'Ours - including the world cup run 'La Piste de l'Ours' - would be testing without a break.

Nendaz itself sits in the centre of this outstanding ski area, and has swift links to the neighbouring valleys via the Tracouet gondola, just ten minutes walk from the chalet. There is also a regular free shuttle bus service between Nendaz and Siviez.

The chalet is just 5 minutes from one of the largest ski shops in Nendaz, Neige Adventure. We have a special arrangement with the shop whereby chalet guests can obtain a 10% discount on ski lessons, equipment hire and purchases. Kids: Nendaz is a great resort for families, with plenty to entertain the kids. In winter there is a children's snow park up at Tracouet with a 'moving carpet' lift for tinies, and a tubing and sledging area. The ski schools take kids from the age of 3 and the creche in Nendaz is able to take infants from 18 months.

In the village there is a large adventure playground with trampolines with bungee harnesses.
