Overview

About the property

Bedrooms 3, Bathrooms 2, Sleeps 6

Highlights

This luxury three-bedroom, two bathroom apartment is a fantastic choice for a winter or summer holiday in the mountains. The fabulous, uniquely-shaped and fully-windowed dining area is mirrored in the master bedroom below and allows you to fully immerse yourself in the stunning mountain scenery. The chalet is right next to the "bisses" 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 mountain retreat with the option for plenty of action-packed activities on the doorstep.

Bedrooms & Bathrooms

The master(double) bedroom has amazing 270-degree windows with one-touch electric blinds to easily shutter out the external world and provide a more intimate setting. There is also an en-suite shower room. Also on the lower (bedroom) floor is a double/twin room and a third bedroom fitted with bunk beds for two people. A second, family bathroom with a bath and overhead shower is situated on the bedroom floor. 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 available for you to use. A ski and boot storage provides the perfect solution to storing your ski equipment, ready for the next day.

Relaxing

Sitting around the table in the feature window area discussing the exploits of the day or your plans for tomorrow could be relaxation enough! Alternatively, 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 Catherine 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 two cars outside the chalet. Winter tyres and/or snow chains necessary in winter due to frequent snowfalls. Contact us for railway or airport transfers.

Winter

The chalet is a short 1.5km (1 mile) drive to the Etablons Roundabout, where you will find the main piste, the Babylift carpet and the Etablons Chairlift, along with an apres-ski bar and the bus-stop to take you into the resort centre. The main piste leads down from this roundabout to the Savoleyres telecabin. 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 offer discounted ski-passes to everyone staying with us. To be eligible for the full 15% discount, 6+day ski-passes must be ordered and paid in full 31 days in advance of your first ski day. We accept all major credit cards. Orders for 1-21 days received up to 14 days in advance are eligible for a 10% discount. All advance-purchase passes 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 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 lessons and 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.

Nice Chalet

  • 4 of 5

Chalet Cathrine is a beautiful chalet with a beautiful view. There are some wonderful walks that can be made from this location and so much to see and do. We enjoyed looking out over the valley and watching as the leaves changed color from the living room and master bedroom. We had a wonderful time and the chalet is comfortable, but because we were there for 4 weeks, we had two flaws with this chalet. The first being a privacy issue. There are large windows on all side of the chalet and they have no window coverings, except for the 3 bedrooms, and one of the paths that people use to walk goes right by this chalet and people look in and can see just about the entire upper level. This path is used by many people so there is quite a bit of foot traffic by the chalet. The second flaw is the mattress in the master bedroom is not comfortable with ripples and a big bump popping up, and these caused us to have back aches and sore necks from sleeping on this.

Great amenities, nice location, stunning views that makes you want to stay longer.

  • 5 of 5

This chalet provided all we needed (for 5 adults). Hiking was close by, the area was quiet but not too remote. If we did not go anywhere that day, there was room for us all to spread out and enjoy our surroundings.

Delightful chalet in La Tzoumas

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Chalet Catherine in June with a couple of old friends. It was a beautiful home with amazing views and a good location for hiking in the La Tzoumaz area. The only thing that keeps me from rating it a 5 is that we were not told that booking during the off season meant lifts and restaurants in the area would be closed. The local grocery store was open, so we cooked for ourselves and still managed a couple of great hikes. It would have been fun to be there a couple of weeks later when everything was open. Beautiful chalet!

Stunning Chalet indeed!!!

  • 5 of 5

We a family of 4 with 2 adult sons stayed in Chalet Catherine from 19/12/2016 till 27/12/2016 and had an amazing holiday.

The Chalet is everything you can wish for , set in a stunning position with great views and has privacy.

We never grew tired of looking out of the window while having breakfast and after a full day skiing it was great to come back to such luxury , a chalet that is always warm thanks to the under floor heating and lovely log fire.

Chalet is equipped with everything you need and we cooked every night in the well equipped kitchen.

The beds all have extremely good mattresses and lovely duvets.

Bathrooms are as described and we used the provided washing machine daily.

Janni from the the agency provided a table grill , raclette set and hairdryer on request and service was excellent.

We would have liked access to a boot room to store/dry our ski boots after skiing , I assume it was a locked room downstairs but am not sure , ski's we left in the car ,but storing skiboots in entrance hall was not ideal.

Chalet is a short distance to the ski lift and lift takes you up swiftly to local ski area ,although there had been little snowfall , all pistes were well groomed , most days we travelled to the Verbier area ( approx 40 min trip using lift and bus system available)

We had a dream holiday in Chalet Catherine and would recommend it without any hesitation!!!

Amazing Views! Peaceful, Safe, Clean, Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was for two - the house was beatiful, had amazing views, is in a peaceful setting with the sounds of Switzerland all around, felt completely safe even with the bedroom blinds open at night, extremely clean, comfortable living!

The only thing to mention, it took us over an hour researching how to operate the washer, before we realized the water was turned off, and then we had no dryer to dry clothes - uncertain if the dryer is integrated into one unit or if there isn't one, but if integrated, we couldn't figure out operation!

Location

Other Activities:

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…
