BFB's Overview

A children’s snow park nearby, fabulous ski-ing, a hot tub and sauna all make Chalet Chambord very cool for winter fun, plus an annual average of 300 days sunshine make it a hotspot from Spring to Autumn too. Even with babies and toddlers too young to hit the slopes, there are crèches and babysitting in the resort so grown-ups can make the most of the ski-ing and the après ski!

Perched high in the Verbier ski region at 1400 metres, Chalet Chambord enjoys gob-smacking, uninterrupted views of the Rhone Valley and soaring Southern Alps which are frequently smothered in snow. The Chalet has an upside down layout to make the most of the views, with a fabulous open plan living area on the first floor featuring a double height wall of windows and doors onto a large balcony with eating area and barbecue.

The chalet was constructed in the last 4 years to exacting Swiss standards and has very efficient under-floor heating throughout. Snow or sunshine, day or night, the large, yet cosy, living area is ideal for chilling out, whether enjoying a family fondue with a spectacular view (2 highchairs provided) or snuggling into leather sofas by the real fire to watch cable TV or a favourite DVD, listen to iPod tunes or play with the many toys and games provided. Also part of the main live area is the super sleek, contemporary kitchen, with state of the art equipment, including a large, 90cm wide electrical oven with induction hob and a Nespresso machine to enjoy Cappuccinos and Moccaccinos after chilly days on the slopes. For mum or dad to enjoy a quiet hour or two with the e-book, a mezzanine overlooking the living area makes a cool and cosy ‘snug’.

The 5 bedrooms at Chalet Chambord are Alpine chic with shutters to provide a total black out effect for afternoon naps. There is room for a travel cot is all the bedrooms (two cots provided) and the 4 king size bedrooms also have stylish modern en suite bathrooms. To soothe away the aches and pains of winter sports (or the stresses of parenting!), Chalet Chambord has a sauna and a hot tub in the garden – so don’t forget the swimmies!


Accommodation Overview:

Chalet Chambord comfortably sleeps 10 plus two babies in cots (2 travel cots provided). Four bedrooms have king size beds and ensuite bathrooms. The fifth bedroom has bunk beds. All five bedrooms are large enough for a travel cot.

Location Information

Chalet Chambord enjoys a breathtaking location on the edge of the Swiss alpine resort of Nendaz in the top class Verbier ski region. The town has maintained its original charm but offers all the essential amenities, including 2 supermarkets, artisan bakers and Swiss cheese specialists, plus sports shops and the really handy Zap Shop for hiring extra baby gear, including walking rucksacks and prams. There are also plenty of opportunities for après ski fun, including a full range of restaurants, from traditional Swiss to Italian, Mexican and Chinese. There is a good playground and 2 crèches that take children from 18 months old, P’tit Bec and Flocon de Neige. Baby sitting can also be arranged through the Nendaz Tourist Office.


Nendaz boasts snow for 20 weeks of the year but the peak time is December to April, when the resort is a winter wonderland for children and adults alike. The skiing area of the 4 valleys encompasses Verbier, Nendaz, La Tsoumaz and Thyon-Les Collons, with excellent runs for all abilities, ski schools / crèches that specialize in lessons for children from 2.5 years and a dedicated children’s snow park at the top of the Nendaz ski lift. The resort also offers special events for children all year, including sledging, visits from Santa, Easter Egg and treasure hunts. (More information on the resort at www.nendaz.ch).

Even when the snow is gone, Nendaz is a year round resort, in one of Switzerland’s sunniest regions which boasts 300 days sunshine per year. In summer the climate is positively Mediterranean, with warm, sunny days to relax by the town’s open air pool and enjoy the full programme of family outdoor activities, including mountain biking down the pistes, beautiful walks through Alpine meadows and picnics by sparkling lakes.

The drive to Chalet Chambord takes approximately an hour and a half from Geneva International Airport and 25 minutes from Sion Airport. Hiring a car is recommended to make the most of the local area.

Who owns this place?

Chalet Chambord is co-owned by 2 families. Rachael and Phil have 3 daughters, aged 5, 3 and 2. They live in Singapore. Nick and Rebecca have a little girl who is 3, and a baby boy. They live in Wellow near Bath with their black lab Hudson.

The 2 couples bought the land back in 2008, and then started the design process with an architecture firm. The chalet was finished in 2009.

What do they love about it?

We love visiting the chalet. One of the best surprises is how great the area is at any time of year. We knew winters would be wonderful but now love our trips there in summer, spring and autumn just as much.

The chalet has lots of luxuries for adults - sauna, outdoor hot tub, Nespresso etc - and we always have a fantastic time there with family and friends. In winter we look forward to getting out on the mountain and then coming back to our home-from-home for a hot tub, lazy dinners, and cozying in front of the fire. There are also some very good restaurants in the village if you want evenings out. There are great specialty food shops for foodies, and the local wine is very good!

In spring and summer we mix up lazy days in the garden or around the pool with activities such as mountain biking, walking and exploring the region. Either way we always enjoy long breakfasts and BBQs with the beautiful views of the valley.

What do the kids love about it?

Switzerland offers a lot for a family holiday. Nendaz is very family-friendly and the town puts on a lot of activities for kids of all ages.

We recently put one of the kids into ski school for the first time (just before she turned 3) and it was wonderful to see how much she enjoyed it and how much progress she made in just a few days. For little ones not old enough to ski you can do sledging or use the snow playgrounds, or take a trip in the gondola to have lunch at the top of the mountain.

In summer the temperature is perfect for families - warm enough for sunbathing but not too hot - and there is a lovely outdoor pool to enjoy in the village. Little ones just love the freedom to run around and spend hours picking flowers in the alpine meadows, admiring the cows with their bells! Ours have enjoyed bike rides and hikes in the rucksack - lots of equipment is available to hire in the town. We are looking forward to all the other activities that open up when they're a bit older - mountain biking, paragliding, rock climbing etc. Although summer holidays in the mountains are not that common among Brits, continental Europeans have discovered the advantages and the town has a buzz about it with lots of local festivals in summer.

There are also some lovely days out - we recently found a really charming miniature railway park on the shores of Lake Geneva that the kids loved, and there are hot springs, boat rides etc all within an hours drive.
