A fabulous luxury chalet with sauna and outdoor spa in an idyllic area of La Tzoumaz, with incredible views across the valley and of the resort. 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. The whole chalet has been beautifully decorated and finished to give a feel of Swiss luxury, based around a mountain theme. The name “Charbray” comes from a Euro-American cross-breed of cows,to which there are frequent references throughout the chalet.
Bedrooms & Bathrooms
The Master Suite has direct access to the hot-tub on the terrace and an en-suite bathroom with shower, separate bath and his’n’hers sinks. Bathrobes are available for rent on arrival or at anytime during your stay. Next-door to the Master Suite is another double room with terrace access and en-suite shower room and large double sink. On this level there is also a twin room and a family bathroom. The bunk room sleeps up to 4 people and is fitted with a TV to make it an ideal children’s room. In addition to the three bathrooms and the extra shower in the sauna area, there is a guest 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 impressive and state-of-the-art, fully equipped kitchen overlooks the dining room area, separated by a glass and wood bar with seating. Double refrigerators, two full-size Zug ovens, plate-warming drawer, 5-plate Siemens induction cooking surface, separate freezer and Zug dishwasher make cooking for 10 a pleasure. Alongside the staples such as microwave, kettle, toaster, electric filter coffee-machine and Nespresso coffee-machine there are also 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. Inside the ski storage room are three toboggans (sledges) for you to enjoy.
The large jacuzzi hot-tub on the terrace seats 5 people and has stunning views of the Swiss Alps, and the chalet’s privileged position next to a forest provides absolute tranquility and privacy. A sauna with separate shower awaits sports and relaxation enthusiasts alike. In the middle of the spacious living and dining room area is a 3-sided glass-protected chimney and fireplace which provides an elegant yet cosy ambiance. Large (3-meter/9-foot long) windows and sliding glass doors open onto the wrap-around balcony, providing stunning views from any vantage point. The charming mezzanine with an additional reading, seating and television-viewing area overlooks the living and dining room area and offers a gorgeous view of its own. The only challenge when trying to watch any of the three TVs is trying not to be distracted by the beautiful and ever-changing views from the ample windows. 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 Charbray is equipped with free, high-speed WIFI for your own private use.
We’re sorry but Chalet Charbray is a pet-free property. Please browse our selection of pet-friendly chalets if you would like to travel with your pet.
There is reserved parking for 2 or 3 cars just above the chalet, with easy access down some gentle steps with a handrail. A Car is recommended when staying in this chalet as it is located in a secluded area, by road it is 2km from the ski-lifts and village amenities. The”Bisse de la Chapelle” footpath winds upwards through the forest and reduces the distance to the shops to 500m, however in winter this may be snow-covered and slippery. Winter tyres and/or snow chains are necessary in winter due to frequent snowfalls.
A short drive in the car and you are at the village or the Savoleyres telecabin in a matter of minutes. 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 the peak summer season (from early July to late August), we provide you with free VIP pedestrian lift-passes, half-price mountain-bike daypasses and a range of other discounts. The telecabin link to Verbier operates daily at this time of year 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.
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. Visit the Maison de la Foret with its wildlife exhibitions and its Five Senses Nature Trail, and the starting point of many beautiful hikes. 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. 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.
