Chalet 'Skyfall' is where '007' would stay with its breathtaking views of the Bernese Alps. Perched high above the Rhone valley at 1500m in the village of La Tzoumaz, the chalet provides access to 400km of skiing in Verbier's '4 Vallées' ski area - its big! The area is reputed to have some of the best off-piste skiing in Europe.
The chalet is very comfortable and La Tzoumaz makes a great alternative resort to the now burgeoning and expensive Verbier.
NEW FOR 2017: The chalet has a sauna!
You can almost hear the turbo-charge of a DB5 growling up the mountain roads to the breath-taking views of the Bernese Alps from the chalet.
Chalet Skyfall is tucked away at 1500m in the tranquil Swiss village of La Tzoumaz which has some of the best pistes and off-piste in the region and access to the full 400km of skiing in Verbier's "Quatre Vallees" and many wonderful mountain restaurants. La Tzoumaz's north facing slopes hold the snow extremely well and much less crowded than the major resort of Verbier.
