Our family have been coming Anzère for many years. Our Chalet is at the heart of all our family trips here, and the third generation of our family have now started to learn to Ski in Anzère. We arrived in Anzère at the very beginning of the resorts development, and so know the resort & its people very well.

Hugh Prior-Palmer purchased this chalet in 1969

It was perfect for family holidays in the Valais Alps & still remains so today.

Fantastic location, stunning views, close to the village centre and all its benefits.

A WONDERFUL SWITSERLAND EXPERIENCE

  • 4 of 5
It was very nice to have our own typical Swiss chalet in which we felt really at home. We appreciated the would design from the sixties, the sunny balcony and the beautiful view of the mountains.

It was also comfortable and practical.

The location was good for skiing and walking and the nearby old city of Sion was a discovery.

In Anzère you find everything you need and even a nice swimming pool (with a part outside).

We would like to return!

Owner's Response: The Chalet is homely & cosy, and has the advantage of providing your own private space. Our Chalet is blessed with a superb sunny south facing position, over looking spectacular mountains. Sion, the capital city of the Valais, is a vibrant historical city with old world charm, well worth the visit, and a great discovery too. Anzère’s new swimming pool, spa, and wellness centre has been a great success. Anzère’s skiing is good for all standards of skiers, and there are plenty of good walking trails in and around the village. In the future we would be delighted to have you all back.

PROBABLY OUR BEST WINTER VACATION !

  • 5 of 5
This is the first time we stay in Switzerland for our winter holidays, and it has been a wonderful experience. The resort is perfect for our family - not too large (we have 2 girls of 9 and 7), but with long ski slopes, very enjoyable.

The chalet was perfect for us : absolutely clean, very cosy, it really felt as if we were in a family home (which is actually the case !). Its location is great : it is not in the heart of the Anzere resort, which is why it so quiet. But at the same time, the shuttle bus' stop to the village is only 20 meters away, and the bus passes every 15 or 20 minutes, so the access to the ski slopes and the village is really easy (even with small children). So you don't have to bother with the car (it didn't leave its parking place, right next to the chalet, for the whole week !), which is also another asset of the place...

We also put our girls to the Swiss Ski School every afternoon, and they were delighted : the ski teachers are highly competent, and extremely kind and patient with children.

Above all I would like to thank the proprietor, Mr. Prior, for his kindness, and the quality of the relationship that we had by e-mail. He has been extremely helpful, giving many advice and information on the chalet, the resort, shops, etc... Many thanks too to his brother Gerald, who lives in Anzere, and is also a ski teacher at the Swiss Ski School : he was there to welcome us when we arrived, and saw us out at the end of our stay, giving also many advice, and adding a "family touch" to this wonderful holiday...

We only have one hope, that we'll be able to come back !

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review of your holiday. Anzère is a great family ski resort. The Chalet has always been our home away from home & it is so good to have the opportunity to share this with other families too. The convenience of the Ski Shuttle Bus does give you the chance to park the car up for the holiday & to have a break from driving. The Swiss Ski School in Anzère has always been good, my brother & I both learnt to ski in Anzère, and as mentioned, my brother now works for the Ski School. We do hope that you and your family do return in the near future.

GREAT LOCATION AND VERY COSY ALPINE CHALET

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from the most fantastic family holiday. The chalet was well located and very comfortable. Having a garage/store room was an added bonus for the boring practicalities of housing skis/boots at the end of a day on the slopes. There is also a washing machine/boiler room which we have never had in a chalet before and it we found it particularly useful as we have young children.

We were amazed by how easy the train was from Geneva Airport to Sion; so easy and stress free. It leaves every half an hour, with the first train starting at 5.15Am. The journey time is 2 hours. There is a train fare for children 6-16years which is CHF30 for the year (versus paying CHF25 per child just for a one way). Children 0-5years travel for free on buses and trains. We caught a bus up the hill to Anzere (30 mins) CHF35 for all five of us, or you can hire a car (Europcar office in the Train station), or take a taxi for CHF78 one way. The buses leave from right outside Sion train station so it couldn't be easier. We didn't miss not having a car whilst at the chalet as the ski bus is brilliant, it comes past every 15minutes (8.30am-5.30pm) and the bus stop is 50m from the door of the chalet.

Anzere is a small, local, friendly village away from the maddening crowd and off the usual 'tourist route'. We really had the most wonderful time and cannot Thank You enough for allowing us to experience what we felt was the Alps at its best.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the review. Some really useful travel information, a reminder to us all how good the Swiss Rail service is, and what good value it is too. The Post Bus (PTT) service is excellent too, and if you do not have a car the PTT will get you anywhere in Switzerland. Sion Rail Station has its Taxi rank right in front of the station; the yellow PTT buses are all lined up opposite, and if you need a car rental from Europcar, as you mention its office is in the rail station. The Anzère Ski-Bus works so well for Chalet Les Fétiches, and so convenient when you are with children. Anzère is a great village, friendly atmosphere, lots of Swiss alpine charm, great location in the heart of the Valais region, and in many ways an undiscovered gem.

VERY NICE COZY HOME

  • 5 of 5
Hugh was extremely helpful throughout our planning. The house itself was exactly as advertised and provided a very nice place to relax and read while we were not exploring the area and skiing. Thank you very much for a great location and opening your home to us.

GREAT CENTRAL LOCATION FOR DAY TRIPS

  • 4 of 5
We rented this chalet for ten days in August 2013. While we only spent our evenings here, it was a great location to start a number of day trips in the Valais. The chalet was large enough for my wife, my three teenage daughters and myself and well located in the heart of Anzere. The house was clean and well maintained and the Wi-Fi was great for the kids to talk to their friends in Canada. The owner was very hospitable and easy to get in contact with. There is a washer and dryer which is very convenient and a grocery store minutes away.

Owner's Response: Wi-Fi is essential, and this has been a worth while investment. Our Chalet is fortunate in being close to the centre of Anzère. Anzère, as mentioned, is well located for day trips in the Valais. Zeramtt (Matterhorn), Crans-Montana, Verbier, Nendaz, Gstaad, are all in easy reach of our Chalet. Day trips to Chamonix (France), the Valle d'Aosta (Italy), and Lake Geneva, are all in easy reach too. We have had quite a number of visitors from Canada and the United States recently, and we are always delighted to help anyone planning a trip over from North America.

ALL ONE COULD HOPE FOR FROM A CHALET IN THE ALPS

  • 5 of 5
A wonderfully cosy chalet a short distance from the town and very conveniently located for the ski bus. Large garage and ski/boot store and enormous boiler for all those hot baths after a hard day on the slopes! Anzerre is the most charming, low-key Swiss village with a Co-Op, bakery, pizzeria, summer/winter sports hire shops and Indoor swimming pool and spa in the centre of the village. What more could one ask for? - we have already booked again for next year!

Owner's Response: That is great news that you and the family are returning to the Chalet for New Year from South Africa. Anzère at New Year is such a great place to be. The Chalet is so lucky to have the Ski Bus come past our front door, making trips to the village and ski lifts very easy. Anzère continues to invest in its facilities; with its new Spa & Wellness centre, improved Nursery ski slopes with moving carpets in both the village and at the top station, plus the new Grillesse chairlift with new ski runs and snow making equipment.

Anzère:

Anzère is a friendly and attractive south-facing village with all the expected amenities of an alpine ski resort for both winter and summer activities. The resort is purpose built and is one of the finest examples of its kind in the Alps. Anzère's new Wellness-Centre, with swimming pool has been very well received, and an ideal way to relax after a day on the mountain.

The Valais Region (Switzerland):

Some of the most stunning Alpine scenery is to be found in the Valais region of Switzerland. At the heart of the Rhone Valley is the historic fort town of Sion, which is 20 minutes away. The west end of the valley opens out onto Lake Geneva and the east part finishes up with the Rhone Glacier. Other aspects of the region include excellent local wines, thermal hot springs, traditional foods such as raclette, and the local firewater Le William!

Skiing:

Anzère is a medium sized friendly family ski resort. The snow record of Anzère is excellent. There are a wide range of mountain restaurants, with superb views, and great food.

Ski Resort:

Access to many other ski areas is possible from Chalet Les Fetiches. These include Crans-Montana, which neighbours onto Anzère, and on the opposite side of the Rhone is the Four-Valleys ski area, which includes Verbier, & Nendaz. Further a field, are the resorts of Zermatt, & Saas-Fee.

Golf:
