Walking and Hiking
La Tzoumaz is a perfect base for walking and hiking in the Valais with 150 kilometres of sign-posted trails. Summer guests can stroll through the forests and meadows and take in an alpine lunch or visit the nearby summits of Pierre Avoire and Mont Fort. A favourite walk of ours is the beautiful Vallon Darby.
Verbier is a 25 minute drive via the summer road and offers a beautiful 18 hole golf course at an altitude of 1600 meters. Each hole provides stunning views of the surrounding mountain ranges, Combin, Rogneux and Mont-Blanc.
The 8 seater telecabin takes you from La Tzoumaz to the top of Savolyeres where graded tracks for all abilities give you access to the alpine pastures. The purpose built downhill courses in the Verbier / La Tzoumaz Bike Park caters for those seeking additional adrenaline! And if this is not enough, there is also the 125km Grand Raid Route that passes through La Tzoumaz. Perraudin Sports close to the telecabine can support you with all your biking needs.
The outdoor tennis court is a five minute walk from the chalet and can be booked through the La Tzoumaz tourist office.
Just 20 minutes away, the vineyards of Valais are laid out below La Tzoumaz where you have the chance to taste some of the finest Swiss wines and liquors.
Croix de Coers between Verbier and La Tzoumaz is one of the four popular takeoff zones for this exciting sport.
There is a small indoor pool in La Tzoumaz with an outside sunbathing area.
A 25 minute drive from the chalet, the thermal hot baths in Saillon offer indoor and outdoor hot baths, swimming pools, a riverpool, Jacuzzis, steam rooms and saunas. In summer they have a water slide, grass play area with trampolines and games. It is a beautiful place to unwind and relax in summer or winter.
A 40 minute drive from the chalet is Les Iles de Sion. Here you can swim in a turquoise coloured lake, sunbathe on the edge of the lake, play min golf, ride the mini train or even have a go at bungy trampolining.
In Villeneuve, a 45 minute drive from the chalet, you can hire a variety of boats from pedalos and kayaks to motor boats with ski equipment and catamarans. This is a wonderful way to enjoy the scenery of the Alps.
You can go for River fishing in the Lac des Vaux which is located 2500 metres above Verbier.
