A one-bedroom apartment on the ground floor of Chalet 'Etoiles du Sud', in the tranquil alpine village of Le Levron, just 15 minutes drive from the start of the Verbier ski-lift system. At 1300m altitude, the sun-drenched chalet enjoys breath-taking views over valleys and mountains, with Italy's Gran Paradiso in the distance.
The apartment has a light and airy living area, with a modern kitchen/dining corner, opening onto the panoramic terrace and garden. There is one double bedroom, with plenty of cupboard space, and with ensuite shower, basin and wc. There is cable TV and radio, DVD and CD, and Internet with wifi. There is one parking space; winter tyres or chains are necessary during the ski season.
The village café and corner store are found in the village square, a 5-minute stroll, and major supermarkets and petrol stations are a 15 minute drive away at the foot of the mountain.
Neither smoking nor pets are permitted.
Apart from the vast Verbier/4 Valleys ski area, there are numerous smaller resorts within a 30-minute drive. Snowshoeing and ski touring can be enjoyed from the chalet's door, up the slopes of Mont Chemin to the Col du Lein and Col du Tronc, with their 500-year-old larches and vehicle-free winter mantle. Chamois, chevreuil, deer and hare are the shy inhabitants of this snowy wonderland.
Spring, summer and autumn are equally extraordinary in this little corner of the Alpes, a paradise for hiking and biking, climbing and paragliding, flower-spotting and bird-watching, picnic-ing and reading in the sun.
The rental price ranges from CHF 119-CHF 220 per night, depending on the season. Please check the daily calendar before booking.
