About Kathrine Maxwell

My names Katharine and I'm married to Ian. We have 3 grown up children, our chalet is in fact named after our 21 year old daughter.

We have lived in a village in Hertfordshire in England for the last 19 years but we love to spend as much time in Switzerland as our jobs allow.

Kathrine Maxwell purchased this chalet in 2007

Why Kathrine Maxwell chose Les 4 Vallees

We had our chalet built in the village of Les Masses as we felt it had so much to offer. Just 1 hour and 50 mins from Geneva airport. A short walk from the chairlift, the shop and restaurant and access to all the Four Valleys ski runs without the queues and the prices of Verbier.

What makes this chalet unique

Everyone who stays in our chalet comments on the views. They are stunning from every direction. The area has loads to offer whether you visit in the winter or summer. For more information about the chalet and the area visit our website www.chaletclaire.com

Fantastic home in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous chalet in a beautiful setting. Visited Chalet Claire with another family, was a bit apprehensive how it would work for all of us we had our disabled daughter with us and needed quite a lot of space. I needn't have worried. It was perfect, the way the rooms are set out meant each family could have its own floor. The middle floor where the kitchen/diner/lounge area is was very spacious and accommodated all us easily for cooking, meal times and relaxing, the table in the bay window being a particular highlight. The Chalet was well equipped with everything we needed. Would definitely recommend Chalet Claire and hope to return in the future.

Best location ever!

  • 5 of 5

The place is just awesome! We had such a lovely holiday and the chalet was definetely one reason why! It provides a perfect mixture of privacy and group feeling as the living room is on the middle floor and the sleeping rooms in the basement/on the upper floor. It was perfect to have three bathrooms! The fireplace made the living room extremely cosy and the view was just amazing. We just walked a few minutes to the ski lift and there are much less people standing in line than in Les Collons. Even though we didn't have snow in Les Masses, the ski lift was opened and we enjoyed the service of Chalet Claire to leave our skiing stuff in a locker at the bottom of the ski lift in Les Masses - free of charge.

We have been a group of ten people and we definetely want to come again! The owners have been pretty kind and helpfull whenever we had any wished or questions. It was just perfect, thank you!

Relax and enjoy the views

  • 5 of 5

The description says it all - wonderful setting for this well-furnished, clean and comfortable chalet. You could spend hours taking in the views across the valleys and you would not have had a wasted day. No doubt it's a great spot for skiing in the winter, but summers in the Valais are quiet and sunny - perfect for relaxation. This chalet provides a great base, whether you plan to hike in the high mountains, find new places to visit each day, or simply want to enjoy fresh air and an endless supply of breathtakingly beautiful views.

The best place to stay in Switzerland!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful summer holiday in glorious sunshine at the Chalet Claire. The house itself boasts wonderful views down the valley to the Matterhorn in the south and Sion in the north which can be enjoyed from the balcony. Access to the mountain is easy via car in the summer or chairlift in the winter. We also ventured to the picturesque town of Sion and enjoyed wine and coffee in the many of the delightful eateries. I look forward to booking another holiday soon at the Chalet Claire!!

Vast ski area and lovely chalet with great views

  • 5 of 5

We have had perfect ski holidays here. The vast skiing is easily accessible with a short warm up walk. The villages and restaurants are convenient and friendly and the excellent customer service provided by the chalet owner adds to the relaxed and welcoming atmosphere of the entire resort. The bright and very comfortable chalet has stunning views of the Matterhorn from the sociable round dining table and delightfully peaceful balcony. It is an ideal place to start and end your day of exploration and fun in the mountains, with family and friends.

Wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this chalet several times in both the winter and summer. It's really convenient for the the ski slopes with the most extensive skiing we've experienced in the alps. In the summer the walking has been fantastic with lots of nearby activities to keep the kids entertained. Most of all though we just love the comfort of the chalet, its amazing views and its traditional Swiss style luxury. It's become a bit of a retreat for us and only wish we could spend more time there.. Stuart and Louisa

Les Masses

Chalet Claire is situated in the small picturesque village of Les Masses close to the ski resorts of Les Collons and Thyon and part of the vast Four Valleys ski region. The area is wonderful for both winter and summer holidays, the chalet being only a 5 minute flat walk from the nearest ski lift (brand new 4 man chairlift for the 2013/2014 season)giving access to 400 km of ski runs. In the summer there are miles of walking paths and many other activities for those who enjoy the great outdoors. You are also a short drive from the historic town of Sion, with its castle, cathedral, boutique shops and restaurants.
