Recent Switzerland property reviews

  • Great Base

    "My wife and our two grown daughters (20 and 18) came for a week-long stay in early July 2012. This is a great apartment for enjoying Montreux and the wider western and central Switzerland area. The views are simply stunning and the apartment is very well-appointed. The elevator access for luggage could not be more convenient. The wide paved path along the lake makes a great morning or evening walk in either direction. The bus stop is just out front. We drove over to Bern and then again up in the mountains near Interlaken and both were easy trips with the great road network. The train trip to Gstaad is also great and very easy from Montreux. If you are looking for a great base to fully enjoy Montreux and the wider region look no further."

Four Valleys Ski Area Travel Tips

All Season Fun and Activities at Four Valleys Vacation Rentals

The Four Valleys area is one of Switzerland’s premier winter skiing destinations. It incorporates the towns of Verbier, Bruson, Evolene, La Tzoumaz, Siviez, Nendaz, Thyon les Collons, and Veysonnaz. When staying in the Four Valleys, you will have access to 192 individual ski runs of varying levels. In total, you can enjoy 412 kilometers of downhill skiing and snowboarding. There are 92 ski lifts providing access to the mountains, and most of the ski runs are higher than 2,500 meters. This ensures good snow conditions throughout the season. The majority of runs are intermediate and advanced so it suits more experienced skiers. There are also a number of challenging off piste options. Ski schools help novices find their feet on the slopes, and kids' clubs ensure the youngsters have loads of snow fun. There are numerous other activities such as tobogganing, snowshoeing, alpine hiking and cross country skiing available.

In the summer months, the area is transformed into a lush green wonderland, complete with wildflowers and berry bushes. Hiking trails abound and there are several challenging day hikes which take you up close to the peaks. Mountain bikers can choose from hundreds of kilometers of trails that ascend the mountains and traverse the valleys. Riding is challenging and can be technical in places but for the enthusiastic mountain biker, the terrain is perfect. If you would like a bird’s eye view of the Four Valleys area, sign up for a tandem paragliding or hangliding excursion.

Getting to Four Valleys Ski Lodging

The main international hub for accessing the Four Valleys area is Geneva. Geneva International Airport hosts a wide range of international and regional airlines. There are daily scheduled flights that operate from other cities in Europe, as well as in North America. If you can’t find a direct flight, you may consider routing via Frankfurt, Zurich, Paris or London. Geneva is approximately a two-hour drive from the Four Valleys. Transfers can be arranged or you can hire a car. Like the rest of Europe, there are excellent rail links and this is possibly one of the best ways to travel between destinations. You get to enjoy the scenery without the hassle of traffic and effort of having to drive.
