There is a closed garage and two further spaces in front of the garage, so that you can park up to 3 cars. The car park is located at the bottom of the path that goes 95m up to the chalet.
Warning, snow tyres and/or chains are necessary in winter because of the frequent snowfalls. An additional parking area is available 150m from the garage.
This chalet is not recommended for everybody because of the access: in winter, the path leading to the house will not be cleared in case of snow. It is also advisable to carry a torch in the evening in winter.
The chalet is situated on a steep part of the hill that overlooks free ski bus stop, so instead of going around, good skiers can ski down in the morning. Otherwise, it is only a 100m walk along the flat road that leads from the garage to the bus stop. The free ski bus takes you on the 2km ride through the resort of La Tzoumaz to the ski school, the telecabin and the supermarket.
The modern Savoleyres telecabin lift takes you from La Tzoumaz to the top of the Savoleyres in less than 8 minutes, from where you can either enjoy the quiet slopes of La Tzoumaz or descend to the legendary slopes of Verbier in the vast 4 Valleys ski area.
You will have the possibility to buy discounted ski passes/lessons/rentals and have them ready for your arrival (conditions apply) if you book with us for your winter holidays (December to April).
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.
