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 Nendaz

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.

What makes this chalet unique

We have stunning mountain views, beautiful comfortable furnishings within the chalet, and the Chalet is only 5 minutes walk to main facililities.

There is parking for 2 cars on the property and a large garage. A large patio area and attractive garden with stunning hot tub that has spectacular mountain views, & to enjoy the sunny position we have garden table/chairs/parasol and gas barbeque.

Each of the 5 bedrooms have their own bathroom.

The large open plan lounge/dining room has a very attractive log fire, comfortable leather settees and there is underfloor heating throughout the chalet making it very cosy and warm in the winter.

We have many compliments on the very well equipped kitchen & the comfort of this luxury chalet that is prepared ready for your arrival with care.

The property was exactly as described. Nice rooms. Fire place. Heated floors.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Family friendly house with a stunning view

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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!😍

An all-around wonderful Chalet and location

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the Chalet late in the evening after a rather heavy snow. We were worried as to whether or not we could make our way up the road or even find the Chalet given this was our first trip ever to Switzerland and Haute-Nendaz. Well, it could not have been simpler! We easily made it up the road/driveway, immediately gained access and was able to park the car in the garage and unpack in the warmth (oh so wonderful feeling) instead of outside. The Chalet was immaculate, everything in order. The kitchen is very well equipped, so much so that we cooked almost all our meals. It is a very easy walk to the grocery store, boulangerie, ski rentals and the local lift. Good restaurants were also an easy walk into town and there were a large variety of stores to fill your 'shopping' needs.

The thermal heating of the tiled floors made you want to walk around in your bare feet. You could feel the warm the minute you walked in the room, and after a great day on the slopes, it was very welcomed. As was the hot tub! The view is stunning, even at night which is when we used it the most. There were 5 of us and even with all of us in it, there was plenty of room to stretch out.

We highly recommend a trip up to Mont Fort, even if you aren't a skier. The view will take your breath away. As one of my son's stated, 'This is a life changing moment.' Yes it was. We plan to hike there on our next visit which will be this Summer.

Paul and Mary were very quick to reply to our inquiries and we can't wait until the next time.

Cozy Chalet with lovely views and wonderful owners

  • 5 of 5

Extended family of 9 (5 adults and 4 teenagers) just returned from a week skiing over the New Year holiday. Chalet Marts was wonderful – exactly as advertised. We had plenty of space, the property was very clean and the owners, Paul and Mary, were incredibly responsive and helpful. The chalet is very comfortable and had everything we needed. Bedrooms were large and comfortable and radiant floor heating made the house very cozy and warm. The view from the hot tub and the sound of the stream rushing beside it were relaxing after a full day of skiing. I will note, as it has not been mentioned in other reviews, that the last few hundred yards of the road leading to the chalet are very steep so be sure to have the appropriate vehicle and/or tires if visiting in the winter. I will also note that if there is not a great deal of snow (as when we were there) not all runs are open and for us the run connecting Tracouet (the lift in Nendaz) to the rest of the Four Valleys was not open which required us to take a bus to Siviez (15 minutes) to ski anything other than the one run that was open in Nendaz. It is a bit of a schlep with skis and boots to the lift/bus but there are heated ski lockers available for rent at the Tracouet lift station. However, book early during peak times as when we tried to reserve the week before our trip, they were sold out. We took advantage of the bakery delivery, which was a great way to start the day. We also enjoyed the bar tchin-tchin, just down the hill from the chalet, as a nice place for a drink and pizza there was pretty good as well. Finally, I will say that viewing the fireworks all over the mountain and the valley from the balcony of the chalet was a true highlight of our trip.

Haute Nendaz is a lovely mountain village situated at the centre of the Swiss 4 Vallees region at 1400 metres altitude. 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.
