This luxury 147m2 chalet was completed in December 2006 to an excellent standard with accommodation over 3 floors (basement, ground and first). It is finished and furnished to a high standard with oak floors, fully tiled bathrooms and a Poggenpohl luxury kitchen with granite worktops. Downstairs there is a utility room with washing and drying machines, boot dryers, a sauna and a shower. Outside there are two terrace areas (one very large), a private car park (for use by the upper 6 chalets) and a garage. From the outside balconies and terraces there are breathtaking views across to Val D’herens, and all the way along Val d’Heremence to the Grande Dixence dam. Although this is a very quiet location, it is within 10 minutes level walk of a shop, restaurant and chair lift. It is only 5 minutes drive from bars, restaurants and shops in Les Collons and Heremence. There is wonderful walking and mountain biking from the door and many other activities within a very short drive.

About Chris Ducker
We are English and live in Yorkshire, another scenic part of the world. This chalet is our holiday home.
Chris Ducker purchased this Chalet in 2006
Why Chris Ducker chose Vex
The chalet is modern, well equipped, spacious and very relaxing to stay at. The combination of outstanding views and utter peace are hard to beat, and yet, within an hours drive there is more to do and see than a 2 week stay will allow.

What a fabulous chalet
What a beautiful place! We have never stayed anywhere so luxurious while ski-ing, so well appointed, well equipped, spacious and just lovely. The whole area was very beautiful and we had a fabulous holiday making full use of the ski area and loved coming back to our little haven in the evening. Total honesty from the owner of this chalet and actually think it is undersold it is so lovely. The path is genuinely flat and exactly the distance quoted to the chairlift, you can push along on your skis a good bit of it and the rest is an easy walk. The garage is so handy to keep the car snow free and it is such a quiet little area that you can quickly zoom up the hill in your car if you prefer not to walk or need some supplies. Can walk along the path to the shop too and they have lovely fresh bread and local cheese and essentials. Would love to come back in the summer and can't rate this chalet highly enough - would happily live there! There are a lot of button tows and T-bars which are not the best for snowboarders but given the huge ski area and how easily you can access the fab pistes of Verbier this is the only tiny downside you could find. Awesome place thanks for having us!
