|Minimum Stay||7 - 8 nights|
We built Chalet Alexia as a home from home to enjoy with our family and friends. Having stayed in many chalets in the past we had some fairly clear criteria;??
- Room for two families but with own sense of space
- Endless hot water, powerful showers and absolutely no queuing for the bathroom
- Comfortable beds and crisp white sheets
- Big table for long dinners, board games and cards
- Huge log fire and sofa's you don't want to leave
- Spoilt for choice with Books, DVDs and Games
- Someone available to cook when you are tired
- Cot, high chair and toys
- Close to Geneva
- Walking distance from the lift
- Large and varied ski terrain
We’re pretty pleased with our second home and hope you love it too.

La Tzoumaz, on the other side of the crest from Verbier, is a quiet family focused resort amidst the wonderful skiing of the four valleys. The village has a small natural ice-rink, outdoor tennis court, indoor swimming pool, playground, creche, 12km winter hiking trails and 13km snowshoe trails. Additionally in the Riddes valley there are beautiful thermal baths. A handful of restaurants are within walking distance of the chalet including one who can deliver a catered dinner for the evening. The village also has a newsagent, baker, PROXI supermarket for essential provisions, cash machine and of course the compulsory ski-hire / bike-hire shops.
A skiers paradise
Set at the 4 Vallées, La Tzoumaz offers you an extraordinary skiing paradise. The resort has 40km of piste on snow-sure north facing slopes where it is possible to ski until the end of April. In just nine minutes, the La Tzoumaz telecabin takes you to the top of Savolyeres, 2,354 meters above sea level, where a wide variety of ski tows, chair lifts and cable-cars, provide connections to other resorts in the 4 Valleys region. Together with Verbier, Nendaz, Veysonnaz, La Tzoumaz form one of the largest ski areas in Switzerland offering over 400 km of runs and 100 lift installations. With a length of 10 km and a difference of 848 min altitude, La Tzoumaz’s famous toboggan run is extremely long and fairly fast!. Tobogganing events are held each Friday and Saturday full moon in January, February and March including fondue at the mountain restaurant in Savoleyres. The La Tzoumaz ski school runs lessons every day of the winter season. Full details about lift prices, ski lessons and weekly ski courses are detailed on the Tzoumaz booking portal. Heli skiing is available at Croix de Coeurs, the alpine peak located between La Tzoumaz and Verbier.
Getting to the slopes
Chalet Alexia is most practical if you have a car. The chalet is located 300m below the lift and the village. It's a challenging walk up hill with your skis - not easy for children, but doable for adults. Good skiers can then ski back from the pistes to the front door. If you're not up for the walk, the easiest way is to drive to the large parking located above the children's ski school, park the car and ski down to the lift. You can then ski back to the car at the end of the day.
We are a Dutch English family and live in the Netherlands. We built Chalet Alexia as a second home and now spend as much of our holidays - summer and winter - enjoying all that the mountains have to offer.
Justine van Buttingha Wichers purchased this chalet in 2012
We chose La Tzoumaz and this plot specifically as we have friends in the village with similar aged children - so every day is holiday.
The peace and quiet, the climb up the hill to the bakers, the stars at night, the cows roaming the meadows and the AMAZING ski area.
We hebben genoten van ons verblijf in dit fantastische chalet. Binnen komen voelt als een warme deken! Naast genieten van het huis met groot balkon en zonnige tuin kan je in de zomer er ook heerlijk op uit trekken. Met ons gezin met 4 kinderen zijn er eindeloos veel wandel mogelijkheden, klauteren en klimmen over rotsen, maar ook relaxed over paden met prachtige uitzichten. Het mooie is dat de restaurants op de berg open zijn en we iedere keer ergens gingen pauzeren voor een drankje, ijsje of lunch. We hebben ook mountainbikes gehuurd die meegaan in de lift (liften zijn de gehele dag open) en een lange tocht gemaakt met berg op en af fietsen. Fantastisch was ook de tocht berg af op een step, met wielen zo groot als de mountainbike. De step kan je na afloop gewoon beneden achterlaten; service! Verder zijn er zwembaden, buitenbad, tennisbaan, een uitdagend klimbos voor alle levels en nog veel meer. Kortom met hele gezin veel te zien en te doen. La Tzoumaz, Chalet Alexia met de bergen in de zomer zijn om van te genieten.Een vakantie om te herhalen!
We stayed for 2 weeks over summer (July/Aug). The accommodation is just stunning. The space, location, quality, layout.....all simply perfect for a base to enjoy the alps. We were there for a mountain biking holiday - and the quality of trials both in neighbouring Verbier and La Tzoumaz were amazing.
La Tzoumaz is a lovely quiet village, with such a lovely family vibe.....our kids loved the bunkbeds - which were awesome, and the little kids den on the mezzanine floor. Equally the outside areas were simply perfect, lots of space, hammock, games, ping pong, bbq etc
Genuinely the best family holiday we have ever had, and we look forward to booking our return visit.
Our group of 10 from Malaysia and Singapore spent 9 nights at Chalet Alexia from 27th May until 6th of June 2016. The
little village of La Tzoumaz was a very quiet little village up in the mountain. Being in between seasons, We at times
felt that we were the only tourists up there.We enjoyed trekking around La Tzoumaz's many treks.
Having breakfast while overlooking the breath taking snow cap mountains was something we will never forget and who could
forget the 8am daily orchestra of bells as the cows were moved from one grazing patch to another.
The week we were there, the weather was not very predictable with showers here and there. We did however manage to visit
Zermatt and the matterhornne glacier paradise, walking along the lake in Montreux, the friday market in Sion and on a
rainy day the Nestle/Cailler Chocolate factory in Broc and Cheese Fondue in Moleson.
A bonus for us was the dressing up box that we found in the TV room,the box is filled up to the brim with wigs, snow white
gowns etc.The kids just loved dressing up as superman and playing princess.
The only downside of Chalet Alexia is that we missed our Tennis Game as the Chalet didn't have any sports channel.
On another note related to safety, we always had to make sure that our young children (under 7 years) were supervised at
all times when playing in the garden. As there is a 10 meter drop on the other side of the fence. It would probably be
safer if some sort of netting was put over the fence to make the garden a safer place for children to play.
We spent a great holiday in this chalet. We were a group of 10; 4 adults and 6 kids. With the stop of the ski bus near the chalet getting to the sloops was easy for the whole family.
After a day on the sloops, we enjouyed the quiet neighbourhood. A very relaxing holiday.
We recieved in advance usefull information to prepear the stay. Thanks for everything.
We stayed with our family in Chalet Alexia and simply loved it. Very tastefully decorated, comfortable beds and bathrooms. Modern but also cozy. Clearly quite new and well looked after. Nothing was broken which I find is extremely rare.
Top notch appliances, huge fireplace.We have never stayed in such a comfortable place before.
The location is excellent as well. La Tzoumaz is a friendly, small village, close to the slopes, with a great ski rental shop.
We all thoroughly our stay during a week of beautiful hot weather and used our time fully. Two of our children and their partners flew into Geneva on the first Saturday (our other daughter was with us) and we met them at Montreux before travelling on to the house. The table tennis was in use constantly, as all the young ones are competitive and we barbequed on two occasions and ate in the village with an especially nice meal in the Auberge Tzoumaz on the last night.
During our week we swam, paddle boarded and canoed in Villneuve, had a day trip to Chamonix and Mont Blanc, walked extensively around Verbier and the local mountains whilst the young ones hired bikes and scooters and of course ate! There was so much to do that we ran out of time.
