                              Additional information about rental rates


                              • No additional mandatory fees
                              • Taxes Not included


                              Rentals should ideally start Saturday for easy slotting reasons - and weekly rentals are preferred for the same reason (it's hard for us to rent out gaps). However, please ask if you have any specific requirements, we might be able to accommodate.

                              Payment is due approx. three weeks prior to arrival. Rates include rental, utility bills, final cleaning and a tax on accommodation. Please bear this in mind when comparing to other chalets with surcharges. However credit card surcharge of 15 CHF will apply due to Paypal costs.

                              A 70 CHF discount can be offered for each additional week of rental.

                              Please wait... Travel with confidence

                              Pay with an approved method (credit card, check, or bank transfer) to protect your payment up to $1,000. Before making a payment always call the owner at the number listed on our website, and never use instant money transfer services such as Western Union and MoneyGram.

                              Located in French speaking Switzerland, the chalet is under an hour away from both France (Chamonix) or Italy (Aosta). Closest town is Orsieres (5 min drive / 30min walk), with Martigny approximately 20 minutes drive away.

Though not on the doorstep of any ski slopes, it is not a far drive away from well known sites such as Verbier, Grand St. Bernard, Champex (and Val Ferret), or even several slopes across the border in Italy.

                              Ski: The following ski resorts are within 30 minutes drive: Verbier, Champex, Vicheres, Liddes, Val Ferret and Grand St Bernard, with cross country skiing at Val Ferret. Nearby you can enjoy superb alpine scenery, walking, boating (at Champex), rock-climbing, mountaineering etc.
