Chalet Skyfall

Verbier - La Tzoumaz, Valais, Switzerland: self catered, sleeps up to 12 Chalet 'Skyfall' is where '007' would stay with its breathtaking views of the Bernese Alps. 

Chalet Skyfall

Perched high above the Rhone valley at 1500m in the village of La Tzoumaz, the chalet provides access to 400km of skiing in Verbier's '4 Vallées' ski area - it's big!

Some of the best off-piste skiing in Europe. La Tzoumaz makes a great alternative resort to the now burgeoning and expensive Verbier.

You can almost hear the turbo-charge of a DB5 growling up the mountain roads to the breath-taking views of the Bernese Alps from the chalet.

Chalet Skyfall is tucked away at 1500m in the tranquil Swiss village of La Tzoumaz which has some of the best pistes and off-piste in the region and access to the full 400km of skiing in Verbier's "Quatre Vallees" and many wonderful mountain restaurants. La Tzoumaz's north facing slopes hold the snow extremely well and much less crowded than the major resort of Verbier. 

In the summer the area assumes a completely new splendour abounding with mountain activities all within easy reach: mountain biking, trottinettes, riding, paragliding, walking, hiking, golf, tennis, swimming

"16th Jan to 20th Jan 18

This stunning chalet is perfect for a large family party or group of friends. It's been beautifully furnished and is incredibly well equipped with a great eye for detail. The bedrooms were super cosy with plenty of storage. Bathrooms are all beautifully done and we enjoyed the great bonus of a sauna to relax our aching ski muscles after a hard day on the slopes. The living room/dining/kitchen area is enormous and the kitchen very well kitted out. Our week was rather cold and snowy so we didn't get to make use of the huge balcony/terrace with it's stunning views. The large ski room with heated boot racks is a big plus. You do need a car to get to the skiing and do your shopping - ideally. Access to Verbier's massive ski area is easy from the top of the Savoleyres - one bubble run up from Tzoumaz base station. We had a great week and would definitely come again."

"Skyfall is as amazing as it looks in the pictures. Ultra-modern, well equipped, and classy touches of decoration throughout. The view is about as good as you can get in the Alps. The chalet manual is very thorough and accurate and Matthew was very responsive throughout. Thoroughly recommended." 10 Jan 18

"Wonderful stay in a charming and luxury chalet.

It was our second stay in this chalet. This year with lots of snow what made it even more charming as last year. All necessary facilities are there and everything works well (2 dishwashers, washing machine, dryer, hair dryer, coffee machine, sauna, …..) ! Although it is a large chalet, it is very cosy, well-maintained and it was nicely cleaned up when we arrived. The owners even took into account the few (little) remarks of last year, thanks for that ! We did some skiing, hiking and enjoyed the environment. You can find everything in the village, supermarket, pharmacy, bakery, tourist office, ..... If you want to rent a chalet with a group of friends or family (without losing your privacy you need from time to time) we really recommend this. Price/quality is very correct."
