A magnificent 4-bedroom rental chalet in La Tzoumaz, in a stunning location for winter or summer rental. The entire front wall of the huge kitchen / living / dining area is made of glass, providing you with a magnificent feature window onto breath-taking panoramic views of the valley and the mountains beyond.
Bedrooms & Bathrooms
The two large bathrooms and four spacious bedrooms in La Tzoumaz Chalet Gentiane have each been beautifully decorated and finished to give a homely feel. With one twin room, three doubles and an extra single bunk over one of the double beds, the chalet sleep up to 9 people with ample space for two families, or a large group of friends. In addition to the two large bathrooms, there is a separate WC on the main living floor. 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 cooking for large groups, including a fridge/freezer, oven and induction hob. There is a dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster and coffee-machine, plus fondue and raclette sets for a traditional Swiss evening in front of the log fire. A washing machine, dryer, iron and hairdryer are available, and there is a portable barbecue for outdoor use.
The only challenge when trying to watch the modern flat-screen television from the depths of the sumptuously comfortable sofas in the living room is trying not to be distracted by the beautiful and ever-changing views from the wall of windows behind the screen. On a blue-sky day, the view stretches 20km, up to the peaks of the Haut de Cry and the Mont Gond, which tower 2000m over the Rhone Valley floor below. When the snow is falling, you can watch it drifting slowly past you, as it settles over the traditional village of Iserables across the nearby valley.
Chalet Gentiane is equipped with free, high-speed WIFI for your own private use.
We’re sorry but Chalet Gentiane is a pet-free property. Please browse our selection of pet-friendly chalets if you would like to travel with your pet.
Parking for 2 or 3 cars outside the chalet. Winter tyres and/or snow chains necessary in winter due to steep access road. Alternative parking is available 170m away, in a lay-by on the main road. Contact us for railway or airport transfers.
The free ski bus (less than 200m from the door) whisks you to the Savoleyres telecabin in a matter of minutes. This 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.
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 “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.

Great views, well-equipped, everything you need This was our second stay in this chalet. The view of the rhone valley is fantastic. It has everything you need, good quality, very well-equipped kitchen, and just great atmosphere. In a quiet settlement of 6-7 chalets. A short drive to the telecabine in La Tzoumaz, or close to the stop of the skibus. Very helpful and competent rental company.

Perfect chalet with breathtaking views Staying at Chalet Gentiane ticked all of the boxes. If you are going to ski it is perfect however if you would like to travel using Gentiane as your base the public transport from La Tzoumaz to the bottom of the mountain is very limited. In hindsight we should have hired a car which would have made life much easier. The staff at 4 Vallees were very helpful. Just a shame it didnt snow this year for Christmas.

Great Chalet and Great Hosts We stayed at the Chalet Gentiane with a party of eight. The property offers plenty of space and is easily accommodating two families. Everything is like described on the website, the kitchen is perfectly equipped, enough warm water for all of us taking a shower after a ski day, good quality linens and towels. Anna and Percy were always available and took care immediately of issues such like exchanging bulbs or re-booting the dishwasher. Walking distance to the ski bus is max. 200m, it took us less than 30 mins from leaving the house to the first turns on the slopes. We felt very much welcome from booking to leaving and would highly recommend the Chalet, the agency and anna and percy in particular. Thank you!

Left Speechless - amazing Views of the Mountains Stayed at Chalet Gentiane with friends (9 of us altogether). Large chalet, enough room for us all. Didn't feel like we were on top of each other. 4 bedrooms, all very clean with plenty of space. Bathrooms clean and fresh towels provided, fully fitted open plan kitchen/diner, couldn't ask for more! Anna & Percy very friendly and on hand at all times. Very welcoming. If you stay, we recommend you buy wood for the fire, so cozy with snow outside and the view....wow! Leaves you speechless. We watched the mountains everyday and couldn't take enough photo's, it is the best part of the chalet, we promise you will not be disappointed. La Tzoumaz is a small quiet ski resort, and we felt slopes for intermediate and advanced skiers only (no green slopes or beginner slopes) but quiet was nice and what we wanted. Two cable car rides and you're in Verbier if you want more shops and bars. Not much going on in La Tzoumaz for non-skiers but the walks and the views are breathtaking and make up for the lack of shops. Would highly recommend this chalet. We're sure you'll love it.

Accueil d'Anna et de son équipe très chaleureux et souriant à l'agence. Le chalet était très bien, bien espacé, les pièces à vivre grandes, les chambres aussi, la literie de qualité. les 2 salles de bains pratiques. Attention si vous venez avec des enfants de bas âge, il y aura quelques bibelots à ranger dans le salon... On a passé une excellente semaine surtout que la neige est tombée. Merci une adresse à garder. Bons séjours aux prochains vacanciers David Review Submitted: Mar 10, 2016 Date of Stay: Feb 2016 Source: HomeAway By: David M.
Quality is everything I have had the pleasure of staying at Chalet Gentiane both in summer and now Winter. The chalet is modern with high quality fixtures and fittings. Fantastic views from the picture window in the main open plan living room, whether lounging around, dining or preparing food in the well appointed kitchen area. Lovely having your own view from the bedrooms. Found the bed extremely comfortable and along with the peacefulness of the local area slept "like a baby". The skibus stop is just a very short walk along the access path ( about 1min in skiboots unless your dragging the kids). It is possible to ski back from the Telecabine ( you just have to walk across the road) to open grass area up behind the chalet. Doable for intermediates IMO. Will definitely be back.

Just returned from a week in this lovely chalet. The chalet is beautifully furnished and equipped to a very high standard. The views are amazing, fantastic place to watch the New Year fireworks. We found Anna and Percy very helpful at the agency particularly when we arrived in difficult weather conditions. Highly recommended!! - CG (England) January 2015

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.
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 “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 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:
