About Claudia Johannes

Family with three young girls of different age groups

Claudia Johannes purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Claudia Johannes chose Thyon-Les Collons

The great view surpassed any other we had seen in the alps. We had searched in France and Bulgaria and we never found a two bedroom whcih was so well designed and such a great view, even though it is slightly smaller than we originally looked for we loved it as a lock up and leave pied a terre for the mountains. Being ground floor and near the shops we also thought we could be old here, even though we are some way off retirement!

What makes this apartment unique

Not so many apartment blocks have a pool and sauna in the basement, that's an added benefit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The apartment was everything we hoped for and more.. for our family of 5... Beautiful apartment in an amazing area. The whole family really enjoyed hiking and will definitely be back. Thank you so much.

A cosy apartment with the most amazing views!

  • 5 of 5
The Apartment was very clean, beautifully decorated and had everything we possibly needed for our weeks stay.

We arrived at the apartment after night fall, after a long winding drive up the mountain… I wouldn’t recommend this if its your first attempt at mountain driving! We had planned on arriving during day light, but we were enjoying Lake Geneva too much and then the hire car sat nav took us an interesting route! The next morning, we were woken by the sound of two cows moo-ing in the field just below the apartment. We then pulled up the shutters and couldn’t believe the view!

Our Children loved their cosy little bedroom with their own toy cupboard which they made good use of! They also loved the adventure play area just behind the tourist office.

The tourist office staff spoke good English and were helpful. On our first day we walked around Thyon and then took the cable car to Veyzonnaz and back. We didn’t find the day thrilling but it was a good introduction to Switzerland. On our second day, we drove to Siviez and then took the chairlift from Siviez to Tortin and then waked back to Siviez. Would highly recommend this walk, especially as its buggy friendly. We strapped our toddler to us using a baby carrier for safety in the chair lift. On our third day, we drove to Evolene and got the chair lift up from Lana to La Meina. The chairlift was double the length of Tortin and rather rickety… but had nice views of a few glaciers at the top. Evolene had a nice play area for children behind the school, after which we walked by the river with stunning mountain views behind. We also walked around La Gouille, which was 20 mins further south than Evolene. It had waterfalls and another river reached by climbing carefully down the hill. The next day we drove to Leukerbad and did the buggy accessible dala gorge walk. We had very little time in Leukerbad and wish we’d have had longer there, it really was beautiful. The rest of the time we stayed locally in the village, or drove around Lake Geneva.

Would definitely recommend the apartment as long as you have a car! Thank you Claudia for all of your advice before and during the holiday!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments particularly with regards to the accessibility of the walks you did. Its a specific and valuable insight for buggy users. I note that you didn't mention Domaine des Iles, which is also accessible and useful for parents of small children.

Fab-u-lous!!

  • 5 of 5
A very well-appointed apartment sleeping 4 in comfort with a view to die for.

This region is absolutely stunning. Les Collons is 1800m above sea-level, Thyon is 2000m, the Matterhorn sits at 4478m. Compare that with the highest Welsh Mountains at just over 3000ft! You need a reliable vehicle and/or a good pair of legs to get around.

The area is idyllic at this time of year for hiking and mountain biking. The meadows are teeming with wild flowers. I couldn't believe the numbers of lupins growing wild. Cows with their traditional bells are to be seen feasting on the lush grasses.

The Tourist Information Office (TIO) right next to the Belvedere puts on activities most days of the week. You can, for example, take a guided walk along the Grand Bisse de Vex, or bus out to the tallest gravity dam in the world at Dixence with a tour of the dam followed by a 5hr walk back. Mountain biking is becoming more popular with a tour guide available via the TIO. Lifts are operating in various locations and some will take bikes up.

Sion is about 30 minutes drive away. Here you can walk around the historic part of the town or browse the shops in the new area. Small supermarkets in the industrial area of Sion just before the initial ascent into Val d'Herens are good for the weeks shop as Les Collons is a little limited & expensive.

If you enjoy the outdoor life this is a must. The only negative (at this time of year) is that it's quiet, i.e. not much night life.

I didn't know what to expect but I came back smiling. It was a wonderful holiday. Many thanks Claudia.

Fabulous views!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Les Collons as part of our 6 week summer holidays, travelling through France, Switzerland and Italy. This week was very memorable with incredible views. we found plenty to do, with our 2 girls enjoying the ski lift followed by scootering down again! We had the pool to our selves everyday and the resort was very peaceful. The apartment is very comfortable, a real home from home. We highly recommend a stay here in summer and hope to go back one day!

Owner's Response: The resort of Les Collons is not well known to British travellers, but it offers the same high standards you expect of a Swiss resort and there is plenty to do if you want it; or just take in the scenery sitting on the balcony!

Summer Stay in Ski Belvedere

  • 4 of 5
Great location, excellent apartment, stunning views and easy access to travel around by car.
Good facilities available in the complex, we used the pub next door, the swimming pool, the sauna, the laundry room, the supermarket and two of the local restaurants ! All were good.

Owner's Response: The location of the apartment both within the village and within the Valais, make it a good choice for a multi stop vacation, whether the other stops are in France or Italy. Holidays like this seem to have been very popular this year, with guests coming en route from for example Tuscany and Annecy alike, and I think this can offer holidaymakers a varied and interesting vacation.

LOVELY, LOVELY, LOVELY!!!

  • 5 of 5
we have just spent 2 weeks here and it literally was a breath of fresh air, absolutely amazing place, we counted 24 hairpin bends on the drive up, wow!! incredible views and every morning we waited to see if we were above or below any clouds!! (but they didn't last long) The apartment was very comfortable, a home rather than an holiday apartment, comfy beds and a well equipped kitchen. It was soooo quiet here in the summer which suited us as we wanted to get away from it all and apart from one day, we had the pool to ourselves every day of of holiday. walked along a couple of Bisses which were beautiful, went up Mont Fort (up one ski lift and 2 cable cars, i hate heights and even i loved this, an incredible experience!!), went to Montreux and Lausanne and chilled out for the rest of the time (oh and we managed to do the 500 piece jigsaw!!) Would love to see the area in the snow sometime. Claudia really helpful, thank you for a fab time

The village of Les Collons is on three terraces (1800 m, 1850 m, 1900 m) and is a skier's heaven, being directly linked to the four valleys ski domaine. In the summer, Les Collons provides a sunny and peaceful base for mountain biking, walking, climbing, via ferrata, horse riding, golf and much more.

Valais is a beautiful and exceptionally sunny region in the south-west of Switzerland that boasts 50 mountain summits over 4000 m high. Home to the highest gravity dam in the world (the Grande Dixence), Europe’s largest navigable underground lake, the natural phenomena that is the pyramids of the Euseigne, the longest glacier in Europe (the Aletsch), the first alpine heritage region in the world (as designated by UNESCO) and of course it is the heart of Switzerland’s largest vineyard.
