The free-standing chalet is exactly what you would expect of a traditional house in Switzerland, with large windows and lots of wood both inside and out. Light flows in everywhere and from every corner there is a wonderful view of the mountains, including the Matterhorn (4478m) and the Dent Blanche (4357m). The modern rustic interior, the under-floor heating and the various patios and balconies with comfy armchairs and loungers make Chalet La Pente a very comfortable house for everyone.
The chalet’s 7 bedrooms can sleep 16 guests and it is ideally suited for families or a large group. There are enough couches and chairs so that everyone can go sit and chill with a good book or a game from time to time. The long dining table and the cosy open fire makes it a delightful place to spend time indoors.
Whether you want to ski in the winter or walk in the summer, the mountains are less than 5 minutes away.

The chalet’s central location, just below the main street of Les Collons, ensures that everything is within walking distance. Les Collons town centre has a supermarket, croissanterie, a variety of shops, ski hire, a tourist office, a playground, and in the winter, an ice rink. Naturally there are also several bars and restaurants in the centre of Les Collons 1800m, but also in Les Collons 1850m and 1900m, as well as in Thyon 2000m. So a car is not really necessary, as everything can be reached on foot or by (free) bus. This gives visitors a lot of freedom.
Les Quattre Vallées
Les Quattre Vallées is Switzerland’s largest ski resort, with 400 kilometres of ski pistes. The most famous villages are Thyon, Les Collons, Veysonnaz, Siviez, Nendaz and Verbier. Of these, Verbier is also a very attractive ski excursion destination. This area also offers several options for going higher than 2000 metres, and even a summit of 3000 metres.
The chalet’s central location makes it easy for guests to enjoy the many après-ski options on the mountain and in the village, most of which are in traditional huts.
If you wish to sample some local culture, there’s plenty to see and do in the local area. Check out the fairytale-like chimney rock formations known as the Pyramids of Euseigne in the Hérémence valley, or visit the huge Grande Dixence dam, the highest in Europe. Martigny is home to many museums, including an automobile museum, a statue garden and the Saint Bernard museum – yes, with real dogs.
The ringing of cowbells, the pure crisp air, the sound of the waterfall and the phenomenal view over the Matterhorn and Dent Blanche – it could not get more Swiss than this. It’s like being in a television commercial. But it’s not, it’s the start of your holiday.
Whether it’s a relaxing holiday, or a more active walking holiday, or indeed a combination of the two – the superb location of Chalet La Pente in Wallis Switzerland gives you plenty of options.
The proximity of the mountains, rivers and forests provide endless active possibilities. The immediate vicinity has numerous walking routes through the mountains for all levels of fitness. If you want a day of hiking or just a relaxing walk with a stop for coffee along the way, all is possible. For adrenaline junkies, Les Quattre Vallées has plenty of challenges to offer, such as rafting on the Rhône, hydrospeed, canyoning or mountainbiking with a motorised scooter.
Ready to relax? Have a dip in one of the many lakes, or relax in a Thermal bath.
