The recently renovated kitchen has updated appliances which includes a Nespresso coffee machine as well as a new dishwasher. The 2 larger bedrooms feature hand-crafted bed frames and there are also bunk beds. One room also features a crib as infants are very much welcomed. Pets are also welcomed. Chalet La Tzena also features a rare Italian wood burning stove which provides much ambiance to the chalet, but is also fully equipped with central heating.

About Paul Keegan (U.S.), Marie-Francoise Pitteloud (CH)

My family and I currently live in the US and use the chalet for summer and winter vacations. My wife's family is from the local area in Switzerland and get the opportunity to use the chalet when it's available. My sister-in-law and I have been tasked with managing the property and to make it as welcoming as possible to visiting travelers. We hope you enjoy it.

Paul Keegan (U.S.), Marie-Francoise Pitteloud (CH) purchased this chalet in 1890

Why Paul Keegan (U.S.), Marie-Francoise Pitteloud (CH) chose Thyon-Les Collons

My wife's grandfather built this chalet is the late 1800's and over the generations family members have added and renovated the chalet to make it a home-away-from-home. We greatly enjoy the chalet for many reasons, but most importantly we enjoy the chalet because of it's stunning location. One look out the front windows and it's obvious why we love visiting the chalet.

What makes this chalet unique

There's nothing unique or out of the ordinary about our chalet. There doesn't need to be. If you've ever been to Switzerland you'll understand that all you need is a view and some family or friends to enjoy this place. It's updated with all the amenities one would expect to have at home...without TV or Internet. When we visit the chalet we are not there to plug in or watch TV...we are there to get out and either ski or hike and just enjoy nature. It may sound crazy, but one visit and you may have to agree.

Chalet La Tzena was the highlight of our first trip to Switzerland! During the planning phase of our trip from the USA, the owner was very responsive to our questions and volunteered his insight about the local attractions and amenities.

The directions were easy to follow, and we arrived to a cozy chalet with an amazing view. The chalet is very clean and updated and the well equipped kitchen comes with an espresso machine. There is a large dining table on the main level, and a living room with two large (very comfortable) sofas and a flat screen TV plus DVD player. Outside there is a wide lawn area with many lawn chairs, a table, and a barbeque with plenty of wood (we grilled twice during our week there).

August is such a great time to visit the area; temps are cool, locals are friendly, and it’s not crowded with tourists (like Zermatt was). We felt like we were locals by weeks end. There are many things to see and do within a one hour drive of the chalet. Sion itself has a great old town as well as the two castles that dominate the landscape. A short drive up the valley takes you to the Dixence dam with spectacular views. There are many hiking trails in the area but just a short walk from the chalet is the start of the bisse trail that is a beautiful (and flat) route that follows an ancient canal. The nearby towns of Vex and Heremence have cafes and a small grocery store if you don’t feel like driving more than 10 minutes.

If you are looking for a cozy cabin with a great location, wonderful views, and an excellent value for your money, you must try Chalet La Tzena!

Great New Year

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay in the chalet for 7 days.
It is really well equipped, we didn´t miss anything
The view from every bedroom is just amazing.
The next ski-lift is just about 5-10 Minutes away, so the chalet is perfect located.
We definitly would book this Chalet again!
