Very nice spacious apartment in traditional alpine chalet but not quite to spec as described
The apartment is further away from the lift station than described, being around 300m rather than less than 200m as stated. This made it quite difficult to locate when we arrived in pitch darkness. It also makes for a tricky walk to the lift station downhill if conditions are icy although there is a free bus that can be used. We preferred to drive to Siviez after the first day where there is a large free car park and quicker access to Verbier.
Access at the front is by a short steep series of steps which are tricky to negotiate when snowy and icy. At the rear, access is via the garage and then up two floors. There is no lift. The garage is fine for cars but it would have been a very tight fit for the ford transporter that we came in and there was really no room to manoeuvre it in as there was not much space between it and the crash barriers at the hills edge. There was ample parking outside though.
The apartment is clean, spacious and well equipped with stunning views. There is one shower room upstairs and two in as bath attachments. The main one and the en suite in bath shower that we used were both powerful and there was plenty of hot water for 5 adults. The bedrooms were all fine although storage was limited in two.
We were disappointed to find that there was no jacuzzi or ski boot warming rack as stated in the property description. We regarded these as strong “selling points” that led us to favour this property over others in Nendaz. The property specification should be immediately amended accordingly. These were the reasons for the deduction of one star from our rating.
The sauna was not exclusive to the apartment, being used by other apartment tenants too. It would have been useful to have had some written instructions how to use it, as even after being shown how to by the property manager it was not clear.
What would also have been useful would have been a simple guide to the property and resort written by the owner left in the property. When Included this is always useful for quick orientation and reference.
Nentaz itself has plenty of restaurants, bars and shops and is a bit livelier than many ski villages without coming close to the apres ski of Austria.
The skiing in the 4 valleys is excellent and caters for all abilities. We would be very happy to return.
Comfortable and very good located chalet.
The chalet is very comfortable and clean, and it offers an amazing view over the swiss alps. Perfect customer service, very nice and efficient. The location is very good, close to the ski accommodations that can be reached by walking.
We really did enjoy our stay and would highly recommend the Chalet Henri.
We had a great week in Chalet Henri. We loved the place and the resort. really comfy and homely, but modern and well-equipped too. Ideal for our needs. The photos on the website hinted at the virew that lay in store, but the real thing was sometghing else... incredible! Location was perfect too: walking distance to everything and the new fanicular lift is only 100m away and takes you straight to the main shops and sports hall etc.
nendaz is a pretty reosrt and has lots to do. we loved the skiing. Our group had one beginner and an expert, and both thought is a good area, so I guess that means it has somethng for everyone. We certaonly never got bored it's nice to have such a big terrain to expore. Switzerland is a more expensive than France, but it's so much nicer and frienldier - and if you feel like a treat, we would recommend this place!
This is the best chalet we've stayed in anywhere in the world in terms of balance between location, comfort, views and practicality. Nendaz was good place for the family to go - and our children (2, 4, 7) loved it. the youngest had childcare but the older 2 learnt to ski with a nice locl ski school (very easy to book etc). WE loved exploring the vast 4 valleys, but to be honest after a couple of days, we couldn't wait to get home at the end of th eday. We stayed in most night; good music collection (bit cheesy, but that suited us!), great DVDs - and loads of interesting books to browse. We slept very well and wking up to the view of the valley every morning is something we'll never forget. We are alreayd booked in for next year...
We loved Chalet Henri!
My boyfriend and I had a brilliant week at Chalet Henri with another couple. Fantastic location, right near the main ski bubble, and amazing views straight across the valley. Chalet was super clean, and luxurious and was always so lovely to come back to after a days skiing. The resort was fantastic with lovely restaurants, would recommend La Cabane - the Valais steak (local beef) was amazing!
Chalet Henri review from a young couple
“ We are a young couple, just returned from a week’s skiing in Nendaz staying in Chalet Henri. Chalet Henri made our holiday. It was such a homely, cosy chalet with stunning views of the beautiful Alps. We found it incredibly spacious, perfectly equipped with everything we needed and extremely comfortable. We were spoilt for choice with the three luxurious bathrooms with the most amazing showers and plenty of hot water. The huge collection of fabulous books and great choice of DVDs helped us to relax after a tiring day’s skiing. The chalet is beautifully designed and perfectly located in this super, unspoilt resort. We loved it and will definitely be back!”
Nendaz is fast becoming much better known in the UK, but has long been a favourite of European skiers. It is slap bang in the middle of the marvellous 4 valleys region, which is one of the largest and most highly-rated areas in the Alps with over 400k of pistes + even more off piste. There's great walking/biking in the rest of the year, too - (lifts stay open until September).
Nendaz - and this apartment in particular - is wonderfully located to explore the entire region. It's linked in to all the other areas on one lift pass and takes less time to get to the top of Mont Fort (3,300m) than it does from the much more crowded Verbier. The Printze region is really good and has some great restaurants.
The ski schools are excellent & the 'kids' area' at the top of Nendaz (reached from the lift 200m from the chalet) is huge, safe, great fun, and has a very good bar/restaurant as well! Good creches (Nendaz & Siviez) if kids not ski age. Please contact owner for more information.
