You won't be disappointed when you step inside this gorgeous chalet, with its huge panoramic windows and jaw-dropping views over the valley and the mountains beyond. Newly extended for 2015 with an extra bedroom, extra bathroom and bigger sun-terrace, it can now sleep up to 14 people.
This five-bedroom chalet is ideal for 12 adults or can sleep up to to 14 people when using the beds on the open mezzanine. One of the larger chalets in La Tzoumaz 14-bed Chalet Le Fauconnier has one double bedroom, three twin rooms and a new quad bunk room, as well as two extra beds in the TV area on the open mezzanine. There are four bathrooms, three with a shower and the other with a bath. There is a high chair and cot suitable for children under 2 years old.
The main floor of the chalet is an open kitchen / living / dining area. The large, practical kitchen is fully equipped with everything you might need, including dishwasher, microwave, coffee machine and freezer. There are fondue and raclette sets for a traditional Swiss evening in front of the log fire. Washing machine, dryer, hairdryer, iron and portable outdoor barbecue are all available for you to use.
The beautiful panoramic views and the mountain air are relaxation defined, and from the terrace and balcony you can admire the beautiful mountains of the Valais region. The lounge are benefits from a large, wall-mounted flat-screen Cable television, and there is a second TV with DVD player upstairs on the mezzanine area. In summer, the garden area and new terrace are ideal spots for sunny barbeques relaxing in a beautiful environment. On a blue-sky day, the view stretches 20km, up to the peaks of the Haut de Cry and the Mont Gond, as they rise 2000m from the valley floor, and in the other direction towards Mont Gele and the legendary Vallon d'Arby.
Chalet Le Fauconnier is equipped with free WIFI for your own private use.

This 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.

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 “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.
