Overview

Nendaz Apartment Rental Photos and Description

A self-catering ski apartment overlooking the village with indoor pool & sauna

This is a five-star luxury apartment on the top floor of a newly built 5 floor building, luxuriantly and tastefully finished to a very high standard. It has 3 double bedrooms, 3 bathrooms ,and is ideally located in the village. It is perfect for families wanting to ski or enjoy the beautiful views and fresh air in the summer , and sleeps up to 7. It has a very large open plan cosy sitting room and kitchen with beautiful 180 degree views over the village and the valley. Tastefully decorated & furnished throughout with underfloor heating, Jacuzzi bath,Stereo, TV with UK & European channels,DVD ,Apple TV,high speed internet and an open log fire.It has direct access by lift to a large indoor swimming pool and sauna for private residents use only, as well as underground parking and a concierge. It was developed and built by a Swiss ski apartment developer who lives in the penthouse in the building, and offers families access to a beautiful traditional Swiss Alpine ski village which has an abundance of excellent restaurants with access to all of the Four Vallees Swiss ski area.

Popular in both winter & summer,you can sit on the spacious balcony barbequing your summer steaks or Christmas turkey in the sun , and soak up the atmosphere as para-gliders fly by !

The Domanies des Reines is a group of 4 traditional style Swiss chalet-apartments newly built by a developer in the delightfull village of Haute-Nendaz . My apartment sleeps 6 in comfort & style,with 2 en-suite bathrooms and a shower room,plus a 7th person on a fold-away bed. It has a very large sitting room with commanding views over the valley, a fireplace and a large kitchen with all the mod-cons.The developer lives in the penthouse above my apartment and speaks French & English . Our building is called 'Margot' and has 10 apartments and 1 penthouse with 2 levels of underground parking. Each apartment has access to it's own ski locker, and storage room,as well as a communal laundry room and an 'on-call' concierge. Margot and the neighboring building share a communal indoor heated 15m X 7m swimming pool & sauna which can be accessed by lift direct from my apartment.

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 . The ski season in the village lasts 4 months from mid December all the way through to Mid April.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 5 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 but married to a German lady, 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 Valais

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 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 !

Great walks, great pool, great flat.

  • 5 of 5

We had a really great time and the flat was just what we needed, with fantastic views, and great access to everything in town. Good TV with loads of channels (and Apple TV,) and it was easy to plug our music into the stereo. The beds are compfy , and loads of storage space in the bedrooms, which we really appreciated.

We used the swimming-pool almost every day, except for 2 days when we made trips away from Nendaz region (a special mention for the excellent Charlie Chaplin museum in Vevey (an hour by car)) and we often had the pool to ourselves.

Modern flat, stunning views, great ski location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this apartment during April 2016 for a week skiing in the 4 Vallees.

We found the chalet to be modern, warm and spacious and well equipped. Three bedrooms, three bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen (appliances, crockery etc) makes for a very easy/comfortable stay. We had the Masters golf on when we were there so relaxing on the sofa with Sky Sports after a days skiing was magic! Another highlight was the wrap around balcony which offers stunning views of the surrounding mountains on a clear day and floods light into the bright living room area.

In my view the 4 Vallees is the best skiing Europe has to offer. There are runs for all abilities from beginners up to the most advanced skiiers who can take on the unpeasted yellow and black Itineraries. Nendanz is actually located perfectly in the middle of the 4 Vallees so you have a choice each morning which way you want to head, whether that be Verbier, Thyon or stay in the Nendaz area.

Hope to return next year!

Very nice and confortable apartment - good locatio

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is very nice and confortable. The swimming pool area is very pleasant. The location is central, but the apartment surrounding is quiet.

Fortunately, there are 2 parking spaces.

There could be some more dishes in the kitchen, but whenever we needed something, the concierge helped us very nicely.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We were absolutely delighted with the apartment. It was beautifully decorated, well equipped and very warm, and more than spacious enough for 5 of us. It was great to have 3 bathrooms. The location was excellent, with great views and within easy walking distance to lifts, shops and restaurants. Thank you!

Fabulous apartment for a skiing holiday

  • 5 of 5

It's a really smart apartment in a very convenient location to ski the four valleys. The rooms are all good size with three spacious bathrooms and a lovely sitting room, diner, kitchen. The property has real character and comes with the added benefit of a great pool in the basement. I'd thoroughly recommend this property to anyone, whether it's a grown ups ski break or a family ski holiday.

Haute-Nendaz Lift station
Car: recommended

The Chalet-apartment is located in the village of Haute-Nendaz 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 . You can drive to Haute-Nendaz easily from Geneva in an hour and a half or catch the train to Sion and a taxi ride 20 minutes up the mountain side to the village .

Ski: if you have not skied in the 4 Vallees before, I would strongly suggest that you review the information and interactive map on www.4vallees.ch .

You can walk from the apartment in just 5 minutes to the ski lift taking you up to the Tracouet ski area from where you can ski into the Verbier ski area . It is always easiest to hire a car and then you can drive 10 minutes to Siviez and catch the high speed lift up into the mountains,or of course there is a regular ski bus service ,free with your ski-pass. You can reach the top of the Mont Fort glacier at 3300m faster than if you were staying in Verbier. You also have the benefit of being able to easily access the excellent Thyon ski area.
