This charming mountain chalet feels much more like a home-from-home than a self-catered rental chalet and is perfect for large families who needs lots of space and separate rooms to eat, relax or play. Just 600m from the telecabin, resort centre and ski school, it is so conveniently located that you won't need to use your car during your holiday if you don't want to! There are a total of 4 living rooms: the main kitchen/living room (with TV and fireplace), a separate dining room, a separate TV room and a separate studio (with TV and kitchenette). The chalet can sleep from 5 to 10 people as there are beds for 5 people and sofa-beds for 5 more people, along with 3 bathrooms.
There are beds for 5 people and sofa-beds for 5 more people, along with 3 bathrooms, distributed as follows:
- Upstairs there is a double bedroom, a TV room with sofa-bed for 2 people, a bunk bedroom with single beds for 3 people and bathroom with WC and bath with hand shower.
- Downstairs (near to the open kitchen/lounge and separate dining room) there is a shower room with WC.
- In the separate studio there are two sofa-beds (one double and one single) to sleep a total of 3 people, and a shower room with WC.
- If you wish to travel with children under 2 years old, just let us know and we will provide a cot and a high chair for your chalet.
The chalet benefits from a main and a secondary (studio) kitchen. Both are fully fitted to meet the needs of cooking on your mountain holiday, including a fridge, oven and hob. There is also a dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster and both Nespresso and filter coffee-machines, plus fondue and raclette sets for a traditional Swiss evening in front of the log fire. There is a portable gas barbecue for outdoor use.
Chalet Caribou is equipped with free, high-speed WIFI for your own private use.
We would be delighted to welcome your pets to Chalet Caribou. Please note that in order to cover supplementary cleaning costs, pets are charged at a rate of 50 EUR per week. If you are travelling with more than one large or two small dogs, please contact us to ensure we will be able to accommodate them.
Parking at 50m in the winter, otherwise 2 places by the chalet. Winter tyres and/or snow chains necessary in winter due to frequent snowfalls. Contact us for railway or airport transfers.
A short (600m) walk from the chalet and you are in the resort centre, where you will find the Ski School, Supermarket and the Savoleyres telecabin. The modern high-speed telecabin carries you from La Tzoumaz up to the top of the Savoleyres in less than 8 minutes, from where you can decide to ski back on the quiet La Tzoumaz slopes or ski down to Verbier's legendary slopes and world-class off-piste opportunities in the vast 4-Valleys ski area.
We are very pleased to announce that we offer discounted ski-passes to everyone staying with us. To be eligible for the full 15% discount, 6+day ski-passes must be ordered and paid in full 31 days in advance of your first ski day. We accept all major credit cards. Orders for 1-21 days received up to 14 days in advance are eligible for a 10% discount. All advance-purchase passes will be printed for collection with your keys when you arrive in the resort. Last minute orders will be available for collection on the morning after you arrive. Discounted passes are available for all age-groups, for durations from one half-day up to 21 days, and cover the Savoleyres, Verbier or 4-Valleys sectors. The discount does not apply to the insurance options available. Ski-passes can neither be cancelled nor exchanged once they have been ordered. The discount is applicable in high and low season and also applies to family rates. It is not cumulative with any other offers or reductions. On arrival in the resort we will also provide you with discount vouchers for various other services, such as ski lessons and ski equipment rental.
In summer, the area turns into a hiking and mountain biking paradise, with hundreds of kilometres of marked trails criss-crossing the mountains, awash with alpine flowers and a range of wildlife to spot. The Big Bear is right next to the Maison de la Foret with its wildlife exhibitions and its Five Senses Nature Trail, along with the starting point of many beautiful hikes. The “Bisses” are relatively flat footpaths that follow the water as it trickles around the mountainsides, where for centuries farmers and villagers channelled the streams for their own uses. They have been preserved now and can be an incredible way to spend a day or more on easy hikes with stunning views across the Rhone Valley or over to the Massif des Combins. We'll provide you with plenty of tourist information including our favourite suggestions for day trips that are easily reachable from La Tzoumaz, from spectacular gorge walks, cheese factories and roman festivals to rainy-day ideas such as underground lake tours. The road that winds up the mountain-top to the panoramic Croix-de-Coeur Cafe-Restaurant opens as soon as the snow melts and from here you can continue the drive (or cycle) all the way down into Verbier.
In the peak summer season from early July to late August, the telecabin link to Verbier operates daily from 08:45 to 12:30 and from 13:30 to 16:45, meaning that you can easily access the famous resort as a pedestrian or accompanied by your bicycle. You can even use a variety of mountain lifts to make your way up to Mont Fort at 3300m for Europe’s highest fondue and incredible mountain panoramas that include Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn. Don’t miss the Swiss National Celebrations in La Tzoumaz on August 1st, or the famous festival of live music performances, the Verbier Festival, which runs from mid-July to the beginning of August.
