About Paul Holroyd
Having visited Nendaz in the Summer we were amazed at how beautiful the area is . It is renowned for its apricots, raspberries as well as other fruit and it a major wine producing area as well. Paul & I returned to Nendaz in the winter and fell in love with the vast ski area and also how friendly the village is. We then decided to buy a plot of land and build our lovely chalet!
Paul Holroyd purchased this Chalet in 2007
Why Paul Holroyd chose Isérables
Maretse is in a prime position close to ski lift, bars, restaurants and shops yet in a private road. The chalet has a large garden and sunny patio area with a hot tub that has stunning mountain views and is quite private. The village has won awards for being 'Family Friendly' and in the Summer there are lovely walks next to the Bisses. In Winter the 4 valleys ski area is very extensive and suitable for all levels. We consider ourselves to be very fortunate to have a lovely chalet in this area.

The property was exactly as described. Nice rooms. Fire place. Heated floors.
The chalet had beautiful views. Nice kitchen. Lots of space for a family of 8. The host kept us informed of weather and road conditions. During winter chains or 4 wheel drives are a must. Nice touches of a Christmas tree and tasteful decorations. We were greeted with a welcome bottle and note on the table. Skiing is close by and Paul and Mary provided discount ski rental vouchers. Wonderfull experience. Beautiful hot tub overlooking the valley. Breathtaking views from the upper bedrooms. We would highly recommend the rental.
Thanks for your kind review James. We are very pleased that everything was to your liking.
Fantastic, spacious well equipped chalet minutes from the slopes.
We had a great holiday in Chalet Mareste. The chalet is in a perfect location for the lift/slopes and town. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday here and the hot tub was a great place to relax after a hard days skiing.
Many thanks to Paul for being prompt answering any questions we had.
We certainly recommend this Chalet to others.
Excellent ski holiday.
Lovely chalet, very well appointed and organised. Very helpful owners.
Swiss ski school for the kids was excellent, friendly and caring instructors.
Close to the lifts, but the chalet is up a very steep slope.
Family friendly house with a stunning view
We were four families that arrived in Haute Nendaz for a 10 days stay. The house was everything we had hoped for and more. All the rooms were spacious and offered us great view of the surrounding mountains. Kitchen was well equipped and having a washing machine and dryer was a very nice touch. Then to top it all was the ability to go into the hot tube after a busy day in the mountain or walking around. The house was very family friendly and I can highly recommend it, the town of Haute Nendaz was a very cozy nice little town in the mountains and we look forward in coming back.
I also want to give a special credit for the owners Paul and Mary , they gave us all the information needed and more, everything they did was 100% (from setting the beds to driving directions) I have rented houses before from HomeAway and other similar sites but never have I had this good communication with the owner.
All the best,
Noel en famille
Décembre 2016: Nous avons passé une semaine de bonheur et de partage dans ce magnifique et confortable chalet à Haute-Nendaz.
Le confort des chambres et des salles de bains, le spacieux salon, l'équipement très complet de la cuisine et l'emplacement, vue splendide, les places de stationnement, tout ça à proximité des installations et de la station, on fait de notre séjour en famille une réussite.
Nous remercions chaleureusement Paul et Mary pour leur disponibilité et gentillesse durant notre séjour.

Very nice, clean chalet and very helpful owners
We stayed in Maretse for eight weeks, from mid-August to mid-October, 2016. We found all of the descriptions to be very accurate. The chalet was very clean (Thanks, Irene!); the kitchen well equipped and the beds very comfortable. Plenty of wood for the fireplace. Most important was the terrific support and helpfulness of the owners, Paul and Mary!!👏
Nendaz was well located where we were able to drive over 10,000km and see every significant site within a two hour drive. We would highly recommend Maretse!😍

It is North facing and is part of the extensive Verbier 4 Vallees ski area with over 400 km of pisted runs to suit all levels. It has a snow park/ice-rink. Maretse is a luxury chalet with parking for 2 cars on the property plus a large garage. The chalet is in a quiet location yet only 5 mins from the main lift station/supermarket/shops /restaurants/bars /Banks /Ski/boot hire. We can offer discount for ski/snowboard/boot hire and lessons. SKI SEASON: Haute Nendaz is part of the '4 Vallees' which includes Verbier and has 412km of ski runs and 92 lifts. A varied and outstanding domain ranging from 1350m to 3330m in altitude, something for everybody: families, free riders, free style skiers, confirmed skiers or beginners, snowboarders. It is possible to ski right down to the resort during the entire season. Nendaz, Veysonnaz, Thyon, Mont Fort and Verbier are all areas to ski. At the highest point of the '4 Vallees' at 3300m, the Mont Fort area is a location of nature & freedom, where free-riders meet powder snow. It has exceptional panoramic views and is also a great excursion for non-skiers. Ski School is conveniently at the top of the ski lift at Tracouet. SUMMER: Nendaz is a vibrant village which has a number of festivals and a regular market specialising in local produce. The larger medieval town of Sion is 20 minutes drive down the mountain through vineyards and Apricot trees. During summer, Haute Nendaz is popular for walking especially along the Bisses which are the old medieval streams for irrigation. Hiking, mountain biking, golfing, skate-boarding, rock climbing, etc. are all very popular. Many of the ski lifts are open in Summer and bikes can be taken on the lifts free between June - September. There is an outdoor swimming pool in Nendaz, and beautiful spa and pool at the local luxury hotel as well as the spa pools and baths at Saillon. Golf: 18 hole Golf Course 20 minutes away at Sion. Also 18 hole Golf Courses at Verbier and Crans Montana. We are very fortunate with the position of Maretse being close to everything yet at the bottom of a quiet Private road.
