About Dr David Wilkinson

Hello we live in Bursledon, near the beautiful Hamble River and are mad about sailing, skiing and triathlon. We had always dreamed of owning our very own ski apartment - to ski in the winter and train for triathlon and mountain biking in the summer months. We saw this apartment and fell in love with it instantly. The views are absolutely breathtaking and the apartment is beautiful with wooden floors and open plan design which is rustic yet modern. Our children skied from the age of three and we love family holidays in resort. It is very family friendly with an excellent ski school. But skiing of all kinds is available here too as ski lift system links to Verbier. We hope you love our holiday home and have a wonderful holiday! - Mr and Mrs Wilkinson - Hampshire, UK.

Dr David Wilkinson purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Dr David Wilkinson chose Thyon-Les Collons

Switzerland is stunning and we love the mountains and skiing during the season but also enjoy mountain biking, walking and hiking during the summer months. It is such a stunning place to visit that we decided that we had to have a place here.

It is a truly chocolate box place.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is located in the village of Les Collons which has a tourist information centre, village shops, bakery, pub, post office and restaurants. Our apartment is within 5 minutes walking distance of the Trabanta Ski lift. Otherwise, you can catch the ski bus right outside our apartment to the ski lift or to Thyon 1850.

Spacious penthouse apartment convenient for lifts

  • 5 of 5

I can recommend this apartment for families looking for a spacious and convenient access to the four valleys. The penthouse apartment is clad in wood with amazing views from the balcony and picture windows up the val d'Herans to the Matterhorn and is bigger than many chalets. The apartment has a big living area and an open plan well equipped kitchen making self catering easy and fun. The local supermarket although not cheap is well stocked with fresh meat, vegetables etc.. and excellent local cheese. It would be ideal for two families looking to ski the four valleys. The nearest lift is 5-10 mins walk but it is possible to drive to Thyon and park next to the slopes if you have young children. The local skiing is excellent but it does take about one hour to reach Siviez the main access to the signature runs at Tortin and the Col Gentianes. There is cable television but with a limited selection of English channels it's worth bringing a few DVDs. The block has the added benefit of an indoor swimming pool, and a games room. There are three bedrooms and a good quality double sofa bed on the Mezzanine where I slept very comfortably. The apartment is really quiet, we did not hear the neighbours in the week we stayed. All in all, I can recommend this apartment as a great base from which to explore the four valleys.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your well written and thoughtful feedback and for staying at Apartment Mollie. We are very pleased to hear you had a lovely holiday! We have recently purchased unlimited Swisscom WiFi for the apartment. Regarding food shopping we would recommend our visitors shop at the Lidl (located half hour away at the foot of the valley) for better value food. We also pre-order our shopping for the day we arrive via Coop Switzerland online store and if you miss the delivery, the Tourist office just oppoaite our apartment will keep it safe for you until you can collect it. The shops in Les Collons are expensive but we only use them to stock up on essentials such as milk and fresh bread. We always like to know if our visitors need anything else to make their stay perfect and would like to thank you for your feedback! All the best wishes to your lovely family. Kindest wishes David, Nazrin, Hugh and Mollie Wilkinson

Wir hatten viel Schnee, tolle Pistenverhältnisse. Sportgeschäft, Gratus-Skibus, Lebensmittelgeschäft

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung ist gut gelegen, GratisSkibus direkt beim Haus! Geräumige, tolle Wohnung, super Polstergruppe, grandiose Aussicht, 2Balkone, warmes Hallenbad im Haus! Und ein Garagenplatz zur Verfügung. Genügend Geschirr vorhanden! 2Badezimmer sind toll für eine grössere Gruppe! Wir waren als Familie dort, 9 erwachsene Personen, es war ganz toll vom Platzangebot her! Auch am Esstisch war genügend Platz vorhanden um gemütlich zusammen zu essen und zu spielen. Eine Top-Wohnung! Wir waren rundum glücklich dort!

Appartement confortable, environnement de qualité

  • 4 of 5

A conseiller pour un séjour de 6 à 8 personnes. Très belle vue, commerces à proximité. Calme. 16km de route depuis la vallée mais c'est le prix à payer pour un site de qualité. Piscine intérieure chauffée.
