A truly fabulous 5-bedroom chalet to rent during winter or summer in La Tzoumaz Chalet No 58 sleeps 10 to 12 people in 5 spacious bedrooms. The chalet has been decorated by a British-based designer to give a modern, homely twist on a traditional mountain theme. Designed with families and groups in mind, there is a large open kitchen / living / dining area with a fabulous stone fireplace and a breakfast bar. The bedroom on this floor is set up as a separate games/cinema room. A large rustic dining table seats up to 14 people, and the cinema set-up includes a 42-inch (107cm) LCD TV with surround sound. The chalet is easily identified from within the telecabin by its signature flag, so you can wave at anyone left behind on the balcony as you head up for another run!
On the lower level, the large master bedroom has a large comfortable double bed, doors to the outside terrace and direct access to the large family bathroom with bath, double size shower enclosure, twin his'n'hers sinks and WC. This bathroom can also be accessed from the corridor. There are two further twin rooms on this lower floor, one with access to the terrace and a private en-suite shower room with sink & WC.
On the upper level there are two further bedrooms, one large double with en-suite shower room with sink and WC, and the other with full-size bunk beds for two people, a double sofa-bed, wide-screen TV with DVD and PS3. There is an additional guest WC on this level.
If you are travelling with children under 2 years old, you'll be pleased to know that Chalet No 58 is equipped with a cot and a high chair.
The open kitchen area has all that you would need to cook for large groups, including double oven and hob. There is a dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster and coffee-machine, plus fondue and raclette sets for a traditional Swiss evening in front of the log fire. An iron and hairdryer are available, and there is a portable barbecue for outdoor use.
The chalet has a dominating, elevated position above the village, so benefits from a stunning view across the nearby valley to the distant mountain peaks beyond. Sitting comfortably on one of the deck-chairs on the balcony, you can watch the telecabins steadily gliding past with their charge of skiers or mountain-bikers, or contemplate the tiny cars as they crawl across the Rhone valley floor several kilometers distant. In summer, the garden area provides you with the opportunity to enjoy the tranquility of this calm location and listen to the birdsong coming from the nearby wooded area. Don't forget to bring your PS3 games if you want to enjoy the PlayStation. If you want to indulge in some apres-ski, the Etablons bar is only a short 500m walk from the chalet.
Chalet No 58 is equipped with free, high-speed WIFI for your own private use.
We're sorry but Chalet No 58 is a pet-free property. Please browse our selection of pet-friendly chalets if you would like to travel with your pet.
In summer, there is parking for 2 or 3 cars next to the chalet. A 4-wheel drive vehicle with winter tyres and/or snow chains is required to access these spaces in winter due to the steep and snowy access road. Alternative parking is available 50m from the chalet if you do not have a 4-wheel-drive vehicle. Contact us for railway or airport transfers.
In good conditions, good skiers will be able to ski down the 100m cross-country to reach the main Savoleyres telecabin, and later follow the tracks across the countryside to ski-in to the chalet at the end of the day. For all other levels of skier, the main piste, the sledge run, the Etablons chairlift and the beginners' ski area can all be reached after 500m walking or driving along the main road. Following the main piste down from this area takes you to the main Savoleyres telecabin. This modern, high-speed ski-lift 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.
