About Clare Molloy

Part Brit, part Australian I love the mountains and can be found skiing and snowboarding in the winter and cycling up hills in the summer.

Clare Molloy purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Clare Molloy chose Valais

There is no better place to relax we have the best views in the Alps.

What makes this chalet unique

The views are incredible and I like to think we have thought of everything. There is nothing better than a glass of champagne in the hot tub after a day in the mountains.

Nendaz village is 2km up the road and offers plenty of restaurants, boutique shops, 3 supermarkets and numerous ski hire shops (residents at our chalet receive a 10% discount from Gaby Sports). However, the nearest boulangerie and smaller supermarket is about 1km up the road. The closest telecabine is in the village (car parking is plentiful) which takes you up to Tracouet at 2200m. Other starting points include Siviez (10 minutes), Veysonnaz (15 minutes) and Thyon (20 minutes).

Breathtaking views and gorgeous chalet

  • 5 of 5

Our stay over Christmas was a much anticipated time away from the normal which this chalet allowed us to achieve. Clare is an attentive and gracious owner who looked after each question and even made sure there was a store run complete by her manager so we would have food for Christmas day in case stores were closed. The chalet was enjoyed by my family and we were able to use the grill, ping pong table, hot tub and fireplace. Snow was in short supply but I can imagine this to be a beautiful snow escape as well. Not far above the chalet is a charming ski village with plenty of fun activities for the family. Sion is a quick drive down the mountain to access train and shopping. Matilda the cow provided a few moments of humor as she gazes in a window with spotlight. The only point I would make prior to settling in is to make sure the spa is in working order. The sauna takes much time to warm up and is not quickly usable. The hot tub does not stay at a consistent warm temperature when uncovered and used for longer than 30 minutes. Our stay was enjoyable and we certainly would stay again if we could get away to beautiful Switzerland. Thank you, Clare!

Wonderful chalet, beautiful scenery

  • 5 of 5

Chalet La Vache is a very comfortable and clean chalet located high up and overlooking spectacular views from all the windows. it has a very large lounge with good seating and a well equipped kitchen to suit all level of catering and both inside and outside dining areas to suit all seasons. Enjoy a glass of champagne in the hot tub or a relaxing sauna while watching the sun go down. This is our second visit, both during September, and although not the ski season there is still so much to do and see in the area. We would recommend the Friday morning market in Sion, very interesting, and a cable car trip to the peak which has stunning views. Also a visit to Montreaux situated on Lake Geneva, just like being in the South of France! This chalet has everything that you would require for a fabulous holiday.

Fantastic Chalet in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Hard to believe, but the views are even more spectacular in the flesh than in the pictures. The chalet has everything needed, including a well equipped kitchen, plus indoor and outdoor dining tables and chairs. The fixtures and fittings are all of a high standard, and the decor tasteful, with some nice cow themed twists. Huge windows in the living area, plus french windows in the downstairs bedrooms make the most of the stunning views. The Chalet was very clean and well maintained.

Outside the chalet, there are plenty of activities on offer year round. We did some lovely walks, took the chair lifts and cable cars up on to the tops, and did some cycling. The town is within walking distance, as are a number of lovely bisse walks. We also loved kicking back at the end of the day and relaxing in the hot tub, which is positioned to make the most of the views, and has outdoor speakers, so you can listen to a bit of music too - heaven.

We would love to come back again, either in the summer again, or perhaps in the winter, which I'm sure would be equally fantastic.

Fantastic chalet, wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful summer holiday at beautiful Chalet La Vache. The location of the property is ideal. Just 90 minutes drive from Geneva airport and a few minutes from the village of Nendaz, which has plenty of shops and restaurants. The Chalet is stylishly furnished and well equipped with everything you could want. But what really makes it special are the fabulous views! During our stay we enjoyed some wonderful walks in the local area, taking ski lifts up and enjoying incredible scenery on the way back down. It was different from our usual beach holidays but our children absolutely loved it! And what could be better after a long days' exploring than to come back to the lovely Chalet and relax in the hot tub.

The week flew by and there is so much more to see in the area that we would love to come back again. All in all a great holiday in a beautiful part of the world and I would highly recommend Chalet la Vache!

Crans Montana (home of the European Masters), Verbier, Leuk Seuston and Sion are all 18 holes courses, and Sierre and Cran-sur-Sierre are 9 hole courses.

The 3,330 m high Mont-Fort Glacier guarantees excellent snow conditions from November until the end of April.
