Why Alan Phillips chose Nendaz
We fell in love with the area of Valais, Switzerland having visited in Spring 2005. It is beautiful all year round with the added value of having extensive skiing appropriate for all levels. Le Preyet was built by a reputable, well established Swiss builder. The apartment is very comfortable and the views never fail to take our breath away. Our youngest child is 9 years old - and he has accompanied us on all of our mountain walks - anything from 8-15 miles so far!
What makes this Apartment unique
We visit the property regularly. We still haven't skied the whole area, and we clock up around 30 ski days a year! Swiss wines are a great find, and we have walked miles and miles of the mountains across the ancient 'bisse'. Montreaux Jazz festival is a great annual event, and combined with a mountain hike - Veyssonaz is a great location. Le Preyet offers all modern conveniences for a truly comfortable stay. Accessed through a private road - the property is well located for easy access to the resort, but away from the main area. You can ski to Verbier, but it's equally nice to be located away from the bigger glitzy resorts. Veyssonaz is one of our favourite places. We'd love others to enjoy our apartment and the village as we have.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
The perfect Alpine experience!
This was my sixth visit to Le Preyet as it's the kind of place that draws you back time and time again.
The booking process is very straightforward and the owners always ensure that the property manager is on hand to welcome you into the apartment.
The apartment is centrally located in the beautiful village of Veysonnaz, part of the 4 Vallees network (the largest ski area in Switzerland) and with fantastic access to the pistes. Veysonnaz itself is wonderfully unspoilt, but with enough good quality bars and restaurants to cater for those wanting to get out and about apres-ski.
From the spacious balcony the apartment commands spectacular views over the Sion valley located thousands of feet below, whilst the tastefully designed and beautifully maintained interior can accommodate, equally well, parties large or small on a self-catering basis.
Having also visited during the summer months I would recommend Le Preyet as a base for exploring the area, with a whole range of different activities available from hiking along the famous 'bisse' trails up in the mountains to wine tasting at the neighbouring vineyards. A summer holiday in the Alps is seriously under-rated!
I absolutely love this apartment its a home away from home. It's the best one we have ever stayed in as it feels homely from the minute you arrive with the comfy sofa's, truly stunning views, beds that take away those aches and pains from the slopes and board games that take you back. From the minute we arrived the family were able to spread out and enjoy themselves, its really hard to find somewhere that is big enough for us all but this worked a dream. Its location is superb, the village has all the facilities you need and more. I will come back again and recommend you to friends. Worth every penny. PS - the slopes were fun too!
Appartement idéal pour d'excellents sports d'hiver en famille!
Une magnifique semaine de ski de printemps avec 7 enfants entre 1 an et 8 ans! L'appartement est idéal (très bonne disposition pour 2 familles, confortable pour les adultes et bien équipé pour les petits), la station offre tout ce qu'il faut pour les petits, en haut des télécabines (école de ski, jardin des neige et même garderie pour les plus petits -Thyon 2000-), petit supermarché, boulangerie, boucherie à proximité... difficile de faire mieux, sans être au pied des pistes!
superbe chalet appartement
L'appartement est conforme à la description et est très agréable à vivre.
il y a de la place, des jouets pour les enfants.
La table est un peu juste pour 12 personnes mais on tient en se serrant.
l'accès au garage et à la place parking peut être compliqué en cas de neige( nous n'avons pas pu y mettre nos voitures mais il restait de la place en haut).
Le gros bémol ne provient pas de l'appartement mais du service de bus de veysonnaz.
il faut bien 5 minutes pour s'y rendre à pied mais surtout le service n'est pas continu ( pas de bus entre 11h et 15h30 !!!!!! ) donc pour se rendre en dehors de ces horaires au téléphérique, il faut malheureusement prendre la voiture.
Hormis ce détail, nous avons passé un excellent séjour( si on omet la vétusté des remontées mécaniques de Veysonnaz, quasiment que des pioches et téléskis)
Thank you for the review its very much appreciated.
With reagrd to the bus we were also surprised to hear this and can only assume that this was due to a technical issue. It is of course likely that the bus does not run every 20mins out of the peak weeks as it is assumed that everyone is skiing during the day as its a shuttle bus for Skiing. The bus itself is only 3 mins flat walk from the top of the chalet steps.
Parking - during heavy snow falls the road to the garage can sometimes become blocked however there is relief parking available top cope with this. This is an 'unfortunate' problem with Skiing - glad you had so much snow that this was an issue!
The table can accomodate 12 people however the Chalet is designed for 10 adults. When children are staying there is usually sufficent room to all sit around the table.

Nous vous remercions de l'examen de son très apprécié .
Avec reagrd au bus , nous avons également été surpris d'entendre cela et ne peut que supposer que cela était dû à un problème technique . Il est bien sûr probable que le bus ne fonctionne pas toutes les 20 minutes sur les semaines de pointe car il est supposé que tout le monde est le ski pendant la journée comme une navette pour le ski . Le bus se trouve à seulement 3 minutes à pied de l' appartement haut des marches du chalet .
Parking - lors de fortes chutes de neige de la route dans le garage peut parfois se boucher mais il ya un parking de secours disponibles top face à cette . Ceci est un problème «malheureux» avec Ski - heureux que vous ayez eu autant de neige que cela était un problème!
La table peut accueillir 12 personnes mais le Chalet est conçu pour 10 adultes . Lorsque les enfants sont hébergés il est suffisent habituellement à manger à tous assis autour de la table .
