Activities: The village of Haute-Nendaz is set in the Valais region at 1400m .It provides access to primarily the Verbier ski area via the lifts at Siviez, and the rest of the 'Four Valleys',including Thyon, Tracouet and Veysonnaz. This provides an enormous expanse of skiing,with all the year round snow because of the Mont Fort glacier at 3300m . There is also ice skating in the village, and a sports centre with an outside thermal bath & spa located a short drive away near Sion.Like most Swiss villages it is very busy in the summer, blessed by long sunny days and evenings . If you are a walker then there are numerous trails from the village including the world famous “bisses”. There are 8 of these, 6 of which have water in and were built hundreds of years ago for irrigation. Walk along their tranquil banks through the woods and over suspended bridges.If you like mountain biking, you can hire bikes in the village and there are numerous biking trails.
The Village: The village is only 5 minutes walk away with many supermarkets, boulangeries, and grocers to cater for those who wish to cook. It is generally populated by Swiss residents and Swiss second home owners, plus a fair number of British owners and visitors. The village is blessed with a very large number of really excellent restaurants ranging from budget pizza up to top class traditional Valais food ! The night life is good,but this is more of a family resort village than a late night clubbing location. In the summer it is beautiful, and you can while away the sunny days by the pool or in one of the beer gardens,watching the para-gliders land on the green below the apartment !
You can easily walk from my apartment in block C of Domaines des Reines to the ski station in the village of Hautes-Nendaz, which takes you up to the Tracouet ski area. The main lift station is located on the upper road in the village and the Domaines des Reines blocks are located just below the upper road. 200m from Block C, is the new Mer de Glace hotel and spa, the bottom of which sits on the same level as my apartment block, but the top level of the hotel has an entrance out onto the upper road near the ski station. All you therefore need to do is to walk 200m down a slope from my apartment to the Mer de Glace complex and there is a public elevator available which will take you straight up to the upper road, and you can then walk 50m to the lift station. This whole process should take about five minutes and if you also want to ski from Siviez instead of Tracouet, you can get a ski bus from the main Nendaz station to Siviez.

About Bill Tatham
I am English ,single , and work in financial services in Dubai. I am a keen skier but I never get enough time to use my apartment each season and so even though it is decorated like my own home, I like to let it out to selective guests. Here is a photo of me cooking in the kitchen but there are so many great restaurants in the village you will usually find me out and about !
Bill Tatham purchased this apartment in 2008
Why Bill Tatham chose Haute-Nendaz
I have skied and worked in Switzerland for much of my adult life, and always wanted to own an apartment in Nendaz which gives you access to all of the 4 Vallees. It is a friendly Swiss style village not too full of tourists and many people come back year after year. You can get easy access to all four of the ski areas in the 4 Vallees from Nendaz.
What makes this apartment unique
Some people prefer south facing resorts but the benefit of being a north facing resort is firstly that you can look out from the windows of my apartment at stunning sunshine bathed snowy Mountains across the other side of the valley, and secondly the snow line is lower and the skiing better as the snow melts less. However for those who love the sun, once you get up into the mountains the sun is everywhere !
The apartment is set back 100 m from the road so there is no disturbance from people enjoying themselves in the evening, yet you are only a few minutes walk from all of the great bars and restaurants that are one of the key attractions in the village. If you don't want to go out in the evenings, it is only a few minutes walk to the local supermarket or you can collect a fabulous pizza from one of the many Italian restaurants, and dine in , watching a movie or cable TV with a roaring log fire in the background. If your children are bored, they can simply step out of the apartment, get the lift down three floors to step out into the wonderful underground swimming pool and sauna complex !
