Why David Newman chose Nendaz
Location, location, location. Located in one of the Worlds Top 10 Ski Areas and in the heart of the nicest village in the whole area, Nendaz is still a relatively undiscovered gem..just don't tell anyone else ! t
What makes this Apartment unique
A World Famous Spa next door, your own toboggan run and play park below, your own pool downstairs, an ice rink 200m away and funicular lift taking up to the start of 600km of skiing for all levels. Yopu are within 250m of some the best bars & restaurants in this semi-gastronomic town. around us... This is an extra large apartment (130m2), designed off plan to create a bigger living area than normal and greater space for friends and family to truly relax. The apartment has a spectacular view, that guests frequently say is one of the best they have ever seen in the Alps. The beautiful indoor pool and sauna is a great finish for tired muscles at the the end of the day and with direct access from the lift outside the apartment, this means quick and easy access without leaving the warmth of the building. And in the morning, that first easy lift is just a few hundred yards away.

We shall remember those views forever
Stunning panoramic views of the mountains greet you as you enter this beautiful large 4th floor apartment. With large lounge windows and surrounding balconies, it was very clean and had everything you need for a great stay. With a modern well equipped kitchen, breakfast or a night in was very cosy with TV and fire or you could take advantage of the plenty of local bars and restaurants within a short walk. Great location for skiers of all abilities with lifts in near proximity and local sports shop for ski hire just two minutes away. Beds and linen were clean and fresh and the apartment was warm and welcoming. To add to the attraction of the stay was a swimming pool located on the 1st floor which is always a great way to relax after the end of a day’s skiing, or for the children if the weather is not too perfect. For us though the weather was absolutely beautiful all week and we shall remember those views forever.
I’m so pleased you had such a great holiday and loved the location, views and facilities.
We look forward to having you stay again.
Nendaz at its very best
We had a lovely stay in a 5* apartment very well placed for the ski lifts and village shops and restaurants. The view from the apartment is superb as it directly looks down the main village street with the Alps looking right at you. I cant think of a better view to wake up and look at each morning. The Swimming pool is an added bonus as 90% of the time its empty so its like having your own private pool. There are plenty of things to do in the area and Sion on market day ( Fridays ) is worth a visit with its lovely cobbled streets and local shops and restaurants. David and Sam have created a lovely little welcome / information book which provides you with all the information you need to explore and enjoy your stay. This was our second time staying in the apartment and we will definitely be booking again soon !!!
Thanks so much for taking the time to share your holiday experiences and we are both delighted to have you back. Glad it was just as good second time round and look forward to having you stay again.
Switzerland in the Summer!
We had an absolutely lovely week in Nendaz! The apartment is large and very comfortable, with beautiful panoramic views of the mountains from the balcony. The owner, David, was very helpful and easy to deal with and we very much appreciated the beer, wine and chocolates provided on arrival! We used the swimming pool and sauna every day - very relaxing after walking in the mountains!
Nendaz has a great village atmosphere and there are shops and excellent restaurants all within easy walking distance. There are apricot trees everywhere on the drive up - I never really liked fresh apricots until eating these from the market!
This area is spectacularly beautiful in the summer. Most of the telecabins/lifts are open - one of which is in walking distance from the apartment. There are lots of lovely walks, with gorgeous views, wildlife and mountain flowers everywhere. Maps for all of these are available from the Nendaz tourist information. We went to the top of nearby Mont Fort which was covered in snow - we could see all the way to the Matterhorn from the peak! We took endless photographs - none of which really did it justice!
I would definitely recommend this property! The whole family had a wonderful holiday here and we would love to come again!
So glad you had a great time and you’ve made me want to book in for next summer myself! Sounds idyllic
Great Family Ski Break
Location of the apartment was perfect, space worked well for our family of 5 and friends family of 3. Facilities in apartment and building excellent (although didn't find the xbox - but so much to do kids didn't miss it!!). Pool and sauna on the doorstep was a welcome wind down at the end of the day. Shops, restaurants and bars all within a few minutes walk. Highly recommend and would likely use again if back in Nendaz :-)
Glad you all had a great time and sorry you didn't find the XBox, I think it must have been moved by the cleaners and I will now check. Hopefully the children enjoyed the pool, the toboggan run in front and all the other games there...
See you again soon
Wonderful apartment in Nendaz
On arrival we were greeted by a beautifully equipped 4 bed apartment, with a spacious living area, that lead out onto the wrap round balcony with fabulous views across the valley.
The location was perfect for us, positioned right next to the kindergarten and children's nursery slope, with the ski hire shop (run by an extremely helpful man called Patrick) and main lift very close by. There's also plenty of wonderful restaurants, bars and a supermarket all right on your doorstep.
Being able to take a swim and sauna in the onsite spa was another real treat at the end of a hard day on the slopes.
I'd also like to thank the owner David who could have been more helpful in making a stay so special. We'll definitely be back.
If you're looking for luxury self catering accommodation that links into the 4 valleys this a hard one to beat.
Thanks for taking the time to share your holiday experience James. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.
Family Ski Nandaz x 8
Fantastic apartment with great facilities and beautiful views over Nandaz and surrounding mountains. Short walk (a few mins) to Premiere Alpine Centre where we hired and stored our ski equipment. The funicular is next door to the Centre which takes you to the main Gondola station. Great skiing and good to have a sauna and swim afterwards at the Apartment . Supermarket also only a few minutes walk from Apartment. Got slightly stuck in the snow on the way up to Nandaz on first day (took the minor road by mistake - always best to arrive and depart on the A road via Sion). However, the Apartment concierge kindly came out and collected the family and I then managed to drive a lighter people carrier hire to Nandaz as soon as the roads were salted (only about 60 mins later). Parking underneath Apartment which was good too. Also there was an area for sledging direct infront of Apartment with travelator which was great for children (and some adults). Ski lift prices were less than I had expected as all children under 14 had 50% discount and youths / OAPs 15% discount. Ski school also good although there is quite a difference between the tuition prices of Swiss Ski school and the two other private firms. Skiing area also great at 400km.
Glad you had a great trip although it sounds like you had a lovely start with the snow storms!
Thanks for the review
20 minutes form Sion Airport, ihr 40 minutes from Geneva, Nendaz sits in the very heart of the 4 Valleys Ski, Mountain Biking & Walking area in the stunning Valais Region, Switzerland's sunniest spot with over 300 days of sunshine.
Nendaz is the perfect spot for a skiing, walking, cycling, golfing holiday or just relaxing in one of the most spectacular parts of the Alps.
Nendaz unlike it's expensive and world famous neighbour, Verbier, is far more affordable and down to earth. A family friendly resort and village suitable for a more discerning or family crowd. A fantastic base for a memorable holiday with friends and family.
The very spacious (130 m2) apartment has a very large lounge with an incredible view to match. There is an amazing 180 degree panorama of the whole Valais region from your balcony with the historic, former Roman Alpine Capital of Sion below you (well worth a visit). Sunsets are legendary here with views across to The Eiger and the Jungfrau in the distance.
For winter visitors, Haute Nendaz is at the heart of the snow-sure and incredibly varied, 4 Valleys Ski Area, one of the Worlds' Top 10 ski areas and recently voted Switzerland's No1 resort. The 4 Valleys is a vast must see, must ski region suited to all levels and snow sure thanks to a huge coverage of latest technology snow canons and high runs.
The beginners area at Tracquet is excellent, being on a high, sunny and level plateau, building confidence with gentle greens and blues with perfect snow underneath. For the intermediate and advanced skiers, there are some very long, high and challenging blues, reds and blacks and some of the best itinerary runs in the Alps in the 4 Valleys area. You will be hard pushed to ski all the runs of the 4 Valley's area in a week.
Away from the slopes (skiers, mountain bikers or walkers) and for those keen to explore the area further, you are never far from famous landmarks and stunning scenery. Lake Geneva, Laussane, Montreux, Vevey, Chamonix, Zermatt and the Matterhorn are all easily accessible by car or by train from Sion. The Italian Lakes are no more than 2 hrs from your base in the Swiss Alps and visiting this area in Summer is a must.
When the snow has melted the area goes quickly into full bloom with all the Orchard Blossoms and The Vineyards ripening with those 300 days of sunshine. The Valais area has some very special Mountain Bike trails, walking paths and trails, white water rafting, chocolate box train rides across the high passes passing blue glaciers and some very great Golf Courses in the Valley below at Sion, Crans Sur Sierre, (home of the PGA Swiss Masters) and lakeside courses Montreux., Lausanne and Evian..
Nendaz is easily accessible from Basel, Sion and Geneva Airports with direct trains every 30 minutes from Geneva Airport to Sion. This spectacular train ride passes along the shores of Lake Geneva, taking 1hr, 45 minutes. Sion Gare (Station) is just 20 minutes away with a bus service direct to the resort every half hour and plenty of Taxis.
If you are driving to Nendaz/Verbier from the UK, allow approximately 9 hours from the Channel Ports to your Luxury Alpine retreat.
