Spacious, well furnished with central location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely summer stay in Haute-Nendaz, enjoying plenty of walking with spectacular scenery (and some alpen horn music). The penthouse is very close to a passenger funicular which takes you to the foot of the Tracouet cable car, so I imagine it would be quite easy to access the ski area in winter. The Wednesday market was a nice surprise and our teens loved the village's outdoor swimming pool.

The penthouse was ideal for us - very clean, spacious and well furnished and we appreciated having use of all the appliances. We're used to renting apartments in France, so it was a lovely surprise to find essentials like washing-up liquid and toilet paper already there for us, and also having mugs and a kettle as we've stayed in places where there are only tiny coffee cups and a coffee machine.

Yannick was very pleasant and carefully explained details about the lift and how to return the keys as we left early on the Friday morning.

We would definitely recommend the penthouse to friends - it really is as good as it looks on the website. We had a great holiday with easy communications and no stress!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your feedback, and I'm delighted that you had such an enjoyable summer holiday in the Penthouse, Nendaz. I agree that it is as good a place to go to in the Summer as it is in the winter months for skiing - In the summer there are lots of outdoor activities on hand including tennis, walking, swimming, mountain biking, a football pitch, hang-gliding and sight-seeing, and with a South of France climate, lots of opportunities for sunbathing and relaxing too, with lovely village restaurants right on your doorstep. The Tracouet lift in Nendaz can be reached by walking two minutes across the car park of the apartment, and catching the passenger lift that drops you directly in front of it, so it's really couldn't be more convenient for Summer and Winter skiers alike.

Outstanding Accomodation For The Perfect Ski Trip

  • 5 of 5

The Penthouse was spotless and exceeded our expectations. Chris is very helpful and quick to respond. Booking through to key collection was hassle free. We had a great week skiing and thoroughly enjoyed cooking and relaxing in the apartment in an evening and watching the Ice Hockey from the balcony!

I am sure we will book again as the location is perfect, easily accessible by car and Nendaz offers a great range of restaurants when you're too tired to cook!

We would not hesitate to recommend The Penthouse to friends.

A brilliant skiing holiday in a great location

  • 5 of 5

A luxurious well maintained apartment with easy access to the ski slopes, restaurants, bars and supermarkets. A great network of slopes and lifts, with minimum queuing. Some of the restaurants are a little expensive, but once the log fire is blazing it seems a shame to go out, so we chose to cook our own food for a few nights. We only used the hire car twice. One trip from the airport and one back, so it would have been quite possible to have managed without a car. All in all we had a great time and would certainly return to the Penthouse for another holiday!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback - I agree that some restaurants can be on the expensive side, but for great value I recommend: Le Grenier - opposite the telecabine in Nendaz - it's good for both apres-ski drinks and also for eating out in the evening - it has an informal dining for a limited value menu, and also a quieter more formal dining room for a la carte dining. Other eating out options can be found on my website at www.nendazskiresort.com where customers have left their reviews for the past 7 years. I would always recommend taking a car as it is much more convenient than using public transport, especially for the airport transfer. The journey can be done in about one and a half hours. Looking forward to seeing you again on your next trip to the Penthouse. Best wishes, Chris

An excellent choice for skiing in Switzerland!

  • 5 of 5

A spacious, clean and well maintained property with very convenient location for access to the ski slopes, local amenities and restaurants. The ski network is excellent. After a day on the slopes followed by the après ski, the apartment is a great place to retreat and relax. We dined in for a number of nights. The restaurants were good quality, but a little on the expensive side. Although a car is useful, it is not essential as the public transport together with a ski pass can adequately provide for all travel needs. (One of our party caught the train from Geneva airport to Sion, then caught a bus to Nendaz. I am informed that both services operate regularly). In summary a great place for a good holiday!

The Penthouse, Nendaz

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at this penthouse apartment. The fittings were of a much more luxurious than you would ever expect to find in a rental holiday home. The 5th floor open plan lounge / dining room was enormous, and the view over the ice hockey pitch in the middle of the village was just superb. Because the apartment is on two levels, it seemed like a chalet in the sky, and the supermarket on the ground floor couldn't have been more convenient. The new lift from just behind the sports centre is only a couple of minutes walk away and it takes you right to the main telecabine lift in Nendaz so no more walking uphill like we had to do in previous years. Brilliant !
