About the Owner

Since I bought Chalet Bex, I spend a lot of time in Switzerland, not only in the winter season but throughout the year. I just love it there whatever the season. All my family and friends have fallen in love with the area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From Michele (non mountaineer) & John (mountaineer)

We have had 2 great summer holidays at Chalet Bex, it is in the most beautiful spot and valley. The views are out of this world, either looking towards the various mountains or watching the local sheep and goats graze! The chalet is very well designed, luxurious in style, very well equipped, like home from home! Whether you are a mountaineer/hiker or not, or just enjoy visiting quaint villages, there is something for everyone to do which makes this a great place for a holiday and to relax! We look forward to our next visit.

From Nicki & Stuart

We had a fantastic time again in Les Masses, and how wonderful your chalet is - truly a home from home.

From Neil & Family

You have a lovely Chalet in a great location and we very much enjoyed our stay.

Amazing Property & Brilliant Owner Communication

  • 5 of 5

We rented Chalet Bex for a family break during the Xmas / New Year period 2015. From the moment of my original inquiry, Vicky was fantastic, her communication and advice certainly assisted to create a wonderful 10 day break.. As an owner, Vicky offered a lot of helpful advice and assistance (right down to arranging for the rental agency to leave the key in anticipation for our 3am arrival) and I personally could not have asked for better Owner / Renter relationship.. The Chalet itself is beautiful, the property is extremely clean and modern and caters well for both family and group breaks. The Chalet has everything that you need for a great holiday including well looked after kitchen facilities and utensils and one of best DVD / CD / Book library's I have come across in any rental property. The Chalet has good Wi-Fi, Satellite TV (with many English channels), DVD players etc and delivers amazing views of the valley. All bedrooms offer en-suite bathrooms with large baths with are perfect after a days skiing and best of all, all rooms offer extremely comfortable beds.. The Chalet is conveniently located a few minutes drive from Les Masses chairlift which will take you directly to Thyon 2000 and the 4 Valleys, or you can drive to Thyon 1800 & 2000 in approx 10 minutes. Our holiday experience at Chalet Bex was perfect and I fully recommended this property for all the right reasons...

From the Owner

Whatever the weather, the whole area is stunning. I never knew that mountains could be so beautiful without snow. I thought I was buying a ski chalet, little realising that I was buying a whole lot more. I love skiing in the area and the fact you can ski to/from Verbier in the day is great but I like the local ski areas as much. I love the beauty, the peacefulness, the simplicity and traditional feel of the local villages, mountain life, the walks, the flowers, the local animals, the views, the mountain air, watching the weather. They say that the Valais is the sunshine state of Switzerland - the sun does shine a lot! I also like the fact that everywhere is so accessible, from the Italian Lakes, Geneva, Zermatt, Sion - there is so much to do and see whatever the season.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Barpub : Les Masses at 2 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Sion at 20 Kilometres Nearest Train : Sion at 20 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : Sion at 17 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Les Masses at 2 Kilometres Nearest Ski : Les Masses at 2 Kilometres Car: necessary


Lac Leman (Lake Geneva) is about an hour away and offers water activities plus one of the most famous castles in Switzerland, Chateau Chillon, sits on the edge of the Lac. There are thermal baths in Leukerbad, Saillon and Lavey (nr Aigle), all about 45 mins-1 hour drive away.


Nearest int'l airport is Geneva which is about 2 hours drive away. BA, Swiss and Easyjet all fly from the UK. The train time to Sion is just under 2 hours and trains run every 30 minutes or so. Snowjet has started flying from Stansted to Sion Airport, making this one of the quickest transfer times - Sion to the chalet of just 20 minutes. It is essential that you have a 4WD car or a car with winter tyres (mandatory) and snow chains. It is 9hrs drive from Calais.


Chalet Bex is at 1500 metres. Sion is 20 minutes away. The local villages of Heremence and Les Collons 5-10 mins away. The local Val D'Herens offers some fabulous walking, the whole area is a network of some well-signposted stunning walks - easily accessible, taking anywhere from 20 - 50 minutes to reach and is littered with charming old Valais villages. Lac Lehman, Montreux and Lausanne are 1 hr or so away. Verbier is an hour away, Chamonix slightly further.

Further Details:

The nearest cafe and shop is in Les Masses, 3 mins drive away which sells all the essentials. The ski hire shop is in Les Collons. In the villages of Les Collons, Heremence and Vex, there are several restaurants, bakers, butchers, banks/ATMs, supermarkets and a chemist. The larger supermarkets (Co-Op & Manor) are in Sion. There is a Michelin* restaurant 10 minutes away and another in Sierre. Sion, one of Switzerland's oldest towns has two chateaux, a cathedral, museum, plenty of shops, some good restaurants and an open-air market every Friday.

In winter, there is usually snow from Dec-April and there are many snow cannons. There is night skiing, snow shoeing, tobogganing - the local tourist agency organises many activities. In the summer, the weather in the Valais can be hot but cooler up the mountains. Evolene, Les Hauderes, La Sage, pretty traditional Valais villages, are 20-30 mins away. The whole area offers great walks and/or biking for all abilities. In August, some of the main lifts are open so you get the lift up and walk or bike down. Arolla - a walkers and climbers paradise, is about 40 minutes away (part of the Haute Route from Chamonix). The meadows are full of flowers, cows with bells on and you can sometimes see local people in their traditional dress. Further afield you can visit Zermatt, Saas Fee, drive to the Italian Lakes or Milan (or get the train, it takes 2 hours) or take the Glacier Express from Brig (about 45 mins away) - a wonderful train journey through the mountains to St. Anton.

There is a tennis court in Les Masses, swimming in Thyon, riding in Vex, wine tasting in the valley, bisse walks in Veysonnaz and Nendaz, rock climbing etc. Local children activity areas in Sion, Vercorin and nr Bex.

There is so much to do, too numerous to mention here but there are lots of brochures, local walking books and guide books at the chalet for your use.
