General

The main floor has an open Living room / dining room / kitchen, with windows on two sides, a large balcony and an open fireplace. There is also a bathroom on this floor. Downstairs are four bedrooms with a total of 10 beds, and a bathroom.

The property is well insulated and has very low annual costs, which coupled with the high rental return from being 4 bedroom / 10 bed property, and the expected price rises for 2nd homes following the loi webber, makes this a very good investment property.

La Tzoumaz is perfectly situated for mountain holidays, in a beautiful and magical setting. Nestled at 1,500m, the mountains behind lead up to Mont Fort at 3,328m. La Tzoumaz overlooks the giant Rhone Valley, with panoramic views extending for miles, and shares its microclimate which has the most blue skies of any part of Switzerland.

In Winter, La Tzoumaz is known for its fast lifts, its quiet slopes perfect for beginners and intermediates, and its direct access to the Verbier-4 Vallees ski area. In spring, the snow within the village normally melts during April, the mountain flowers come to life, and cycling and hiking routes open. In Summer, the temperature rises, and it’s the ideal time to go high. La Tzoumaz is a great place to introduce children to hiking, with a lovely “trail of the senses” along relatively flat paths beside ancient water courses. in Autumn, the larch forest of Iserables turns golden red, and for many it’s the most beautiful time of year. The weather normally stays mild with regular blue skies until late October

Location

La Tzoumaz

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:
