About Philip Kealey

This chalet is owned by 4 families from Scotland. We all use the chalet ourselves, both winter and summer.

Philip Kealey purchased this chalet in 2008

Why Philip Kealey chose 4 Valleys

This is one of the greatest views you will ever see on a winter holiday, from the Rhone valley to your left, the Val d'Herens ahead of you, and in the distance to your right lies the Dent Blanche and the Matterhorn.

It is a very secluded chalet, and very peaceful.

It also has easy access to the ski lifts in Les Collons and Piste de l'Ours, and the ski area offers a tremendous range of runs, with some good blues for the beginner, challenging reds for the intermediate skier, and great black runs for those who prefer the steeper stuff.

Grandiose Woche in Les Collons / 4 Vallees

  • 5 of 5

Ein tolles Haus - perfekt für zwei Familien (waren wir die ersten drei Tage) oder eine größere Gruppe (waren wir die letzen vier Tage). Das Haus war sehr sauber und die Kommunikation mit dem Besitzer war hervorragend (Danke Phil!!). Das Chalet hat alles was 8 Personen zum wohnen brauchen. Die Zimmer gut, die Bäder top, die Küche sehr gut ausgestattet und ein tolles Wohnzimmer mit super Aussicht auf das Matterhorn.

Die Bushaltestelle zum Skigebiet ist in 5 Minuten zu Fuß zu errreichen und bei guter Schneelage kann man sogar mit Ski an das Chalet abfahren.

Wir werden das Chalet in sehr guter Erinnerung behalten und denken dass es ein zweites Mal geben wird.

Nochmals Danke !!!!

Amazing stay at a great chalet

  • 5 of 5

This is a great chalet with a stunning view.

We stayed towards the end of summer and may have struck lucky with the weather - the whole week was hot and clear.

But in any case we think this is a great place to stay summer or winter. The chalet is of a high standard and in very good condition, with all the facilities you would need or expect.

The main feature is the living/dining/kitchen area which has large picture windows framing a stunning view - the Matterhorn is visible at the end of the valley and the view constantly changes and is very compelling. We were happy sometimes just to sit and stare, especially just after the sun rose over the mountains opposite or watching the ever changing light towards sunset.

A suntrap terrace made the most of the same amazing views.

A mezzanine housed a chill out and TV space - ideal for the children. 2 bedrooms on each floor would sleep 10 comfortably. 2 bathrooms too so not q's in the morning...

The owners were very helpful and positive - we had no problems at all during our stay but if we had I'm sure we would have got great service.

Access up to Chalet Munro is a series of switchbacks above the small town of Vex. Very beautiful drive through the pine trees. Once happily in residence you can walk up through flower filled meadows and across one of the network of "bisses" - irrigation channels - to the local village of Les Collons. Being out-of-season this was sleepy but has a great boulangerie, a couple of restaurants and shops to provide local needs. We did most of our major shopping in Sion.

There are hikes straight from the door. The Dix dam is awe-inspiring and 45 mins up an adjacent valley. Don't miss Les Pyramides on the way to Evolene - which is a beautiful trad mountain village, again with great hikes. Zermatt is less than 2 hrs away and worth the visit - we took the (pricey!) cable cars up to walk below the Matterhorn itself - stunning.

In winter we'd imagine the whole experience would be very different - but with skiing on your doorstep, a wood burning stove and underfloor heating, a large garage to store all the gear and those same amazing views it would be quite a place to stay.

Many thanks and we really hope we can stay again at this fantastic place.

Très bon séjour!

  • 5 of 5

Très belle semaine au chalet Munro!! Le chalet est mieux en vrai que sur les photos et est conforme à la description.

La vue est tout simplement sublime et impressionnante, même du canapé!

Le premier télésiège est à 3mn en voiture.

Très bon wifi pour ceux qui le souhaite.

Pour les points négatifs mais qui n'ont en rien dégradé nos vacances:

- On aurait apprécié des grands lits au lieu de 2 lits simples accolés, mais la literie est confortable et récente. Le grand lit du rez de chaussé mériterait d être changé, il grince beaucoup.

-Le chemin d'accès (150-200m) n'est accessible qu'en 4x4 l'hiver car peu déneigé et raide, mais cela est bien expliqué par le propriétaire (à prendre en compte pour les valises et autre fournitures...).

Merci au propriétaire pour cette belle semaine!!!

Le Valais dans toute sa splendeur !

  • 5 of 5

Habitués de la région, nous avons passé une semaine exceptionnelle en famille au chalet Munro. La localisation du chalet est parfaite à quelques minutes des Collons ou des Masses, et la vue sur le Val d'Hérémence et le Cervin exceptionnelle. Les grandes baies vitrées permettent d'en profiter pleinement tout en bénéficiant parfaitement du soleil. L'équipement et le confort du chalet sont excellents. Nous remercions encore Philip, son propriétaire, pour son accueil, sa flexibilité, la clarté de ses messages et sa réactivité,... et nous l'envions beaucoup de posséder un tel chalet !

Ruime en luxe woning, complete inrichting en magnifique uizicht.

  • 5 of 5

Deze woning, op een prachtige ligging in Wallis, is een geweldige uitvalsbasis voor verschillende (wandel) tochten in de zomer.

De woning is netjes ingericht, 2 badkamers, complete keuken met vaatwasser, oven, broodrooster en magnetron.

Door de grote ramen in de woning is het uitzicht magnifiek!

Tijdens ons verblijf was het in het dal behoorlijk warm maar op het terras goed toeven door de hogere ligging; HEERLIJK om ook gewoon in en om het huis te vertoeven.

We misten in 1e instantie een koffiezetapparaat maar met een losse koffiefilter hebben we heerlijke koffie kunnen zetten.

Kortom, voor een zomerhuis een PERFECTE uitvalsbasis.
