Voted by the Swiss Tourist Federation as one of the best summer/winter locations for families in Valais region, Haute Nendaz is an all year round mountain resort with every amenity; 3 supermarkets, boucherie, boulangerie, fromagerie, laiterie, post office, bank, ski hire shops, superb restaurants bars, and boutiques. In Winter, Nendaz is superb for beginner, intermediate and advanced skiers alike; with easy access to the 4 Valleys; 400km of pistes in altitudes ranging from 1350m to 3330m, served by 100+ cable cars and lifts. In summer, Nendaz is a centre for mountain biking, hiking and mountain festivals. The town has an outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts, squash, gymnasium, nearby golf courses, fishing, paragliding, extensive well marked mountain walking and biking routes, mountain tours and climbing. The network of ancient waterways (bisses) make for fabulous easy walks, and events such as the alphorn festival and local cow fighting are not to be missed.

Golf: Six contrasting golf courses are located within an hour's drive of Haute Nendaz. 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. If you are willing to travel a little further, 9 hole courses can also be found at Matterhorn, Source du Rhone and Riederalp.

Ski: Nendaz is superb for beginners, intermediates and advanced skiers alike. Set in the heart of the Four Valleys ski area, it provides easy access to Verbier, Veysonnaz, Sivier and Thyon. There are 400 km of pistes, in altitudes ranging from 1,350 to 3,330m, served by 100 cable cars and lifts.

Families are well catered for with a children's ski centre, crèche, games library, ice-rink and special low rates for family ski passes. The ski schools are excellent with very friendly instructors & the 'kids area' at Tracouet is huge, safe and very well catered.

There is also more than 90 km of winter hiking, snow shoeing and cross-country skiing, and for the more adventurous a superb snow park, free ride paradise, snow tubing area, sports centre and inviting après-ski bars. The 3,330 m high Mont-Fort Glacier guarantees excellent snow conditions from November until the end of April.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: 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.

Why Portes du Soleil:
There is no better place to relax we have the best views in the Alps.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
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.
