New for 2016!
A recently-renovated ski-in chalet with sauna that sleeps up to 10 people across three floors of living space. Situated at the edge of the forest, numerous beautiful and varied hiking paths leave from nearby the chalet. The open kitchen / living / dining area has been designed for comfort and relaxation, with a large dining table and long sofa to relax on. The chalet benefits from magnificent panoramic views of the valley and the mountains beyond. There is a well-designed entrance area to help you to easily manage and organise all the skiing or biking equipment from two families or a large group.
Bedrooms & Bathrooms
There are four spacious bedrooms and a fifth, open room that will comfortably sleep a total of 10 people. Downstairs there is a sauna, and also here there is a double room with a large bathroom with corner bath and shower, and a twin bedroom with a separate shower room fitted with double rain shower. On the top floor there are two twin rooms, each with shaped roof and wardrobe, and an open area with a double bed, TV and comfortable sofa. There is a further shower room on the main floor near the living area. 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.
The kitchen is fully fitted to meet the needs of family cooking, including an oven with hob, a fridge and separate freezer. There is a dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster, Nespresso and filter coffee-machine, plus two fondue and two raclette sets for a traditional Swiss evening in front of the log fire. Washing machine, dryer, hairdryer, iron and portable outdoor barbecue are all available for you to use. The main entrance is kitted out with all the storage space you need for a chalet-full of ski gear or hiking kit, with plenty of electric boot-heaters (up to 10 pairs) to dry everything out if necessary.
Relax in the sauna or the corner bath tub after a hard day on the slopes, or stretch out in front of the fire or the TV (with USB sockets) on the comfortable sofa in the living room. Or perhaps sit on the balcony and listen to the birds songs from the nearby forest or watch shooting stars. On a blue-sky day, the view stretches 20km, up to the peaks of the Haut de Cry and the Mont Gond, and in the other direction up to the Vallon d’Arby from where good skiers can ski home to the door. You can use the area at the top of the stairs as a second TV lounge or or play area. A number of toys and games are provided for children of different ages.
Chalet Les Marmottes is equipped with free, high-speed WIFI for your own private use.
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 for 2 cars on the side road above the chalet. There are 28 steps down to the chalet from the parking and the stairs were recently redone for additional comfort and safety. Winter tyres and/or snow chains required in winter due to the steep access road, although regularly cleared of snow. Contact us for railway or airport transfers.
The chalet is only 500m from the ski-route that follows the main road to the Etablons apres-ski bar and joins the main piste down to the telecabin. This ski-route is suitable for all except complete beginners, who would need to walk or drive to the beginners ski area at the Etablons apres-ski bar. Alternatively, one can ski down the garden almost to the ski-bus stop, the ski-bus will then take you in less than a minute to the Etablons. 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. In good conditions, good skiers will be able to follow the tracks across the countryside to ski-in to the chalet at the end of the day.
We are very pleased to announce that we offer discounted ski-passes to everyone staying with us. To be eligible for the 10% discount, ski-passes must be ordered and paid in full 12 days in advance of your first ski day. We accept all major credit cards. Orders received up to 2 days in advance are not eligible for the 10% discount however they 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, medium 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 equipment rental.
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. The chalet comes with two basic mountain bikes to allow you to begin exploring this paradise. 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.

The 4-Valleys is one of the largest interconnected ski-areas in Europe, with lifts linking La Tzoumaz to Verbier, Nendaz, Veysonnaz and Thyon. Altogether there are over 400km of pistes that cater for different levels of skiers. Beginners can follow long gentle trails (which in Switzerland are marked out in blue instead of green or blue) that wind around the mountainside, never going too steeply. Intermediates benefit from many long reds pistes, with up to 1,800m of height change between the top and the bottom of the lifts. For experts, not only are there numerous steep black runs, but also clearly-marked yet un-pisted yellow itinerary routes, where the snow conditions will test your skills to the full. There is a vast expanse of off-piste skiing where the local guides can show you how to access the freshest powder and the famous routes that include those used during the World Freeride Championships.

We love the fact that we are just next door to Verbier. We don’t promise to offer you lots of trendy resort bars and restaurants within walking distance of your chalet, but in the daytime our high-speed telecabin links you to the resort of Verbier, its mountain restaurants and its vast skiing network known as the Four Valleys. We can even arrange for you to spend the night partying in Verbier and shuttle you home when dawn breaks or when you are ready for sleep. Here’s a glimpse of what is out there:
