About Robert Smith and Ros Davies

We are a British family based in Switzerland with a passion for the mountains and skiing. Ros grew up in Switzerland and has been skiing in the Four Vallees ski region since she was a small child. Our son, Jake, is now following in his mother's footsteps or ski tracks and like us is developing an early passion for the mountains.

In our humble opinion, having skied in many, many domains across Europe and America, the 4 Vallees offers the best skiing we have found! And new for 2016/17 a CHF 1.5m investment in eco-friendly snow cannons means snow cover is guaranteed on some of the lower, south-facing slopes meaning that the link to Verbier is assured!

Robert Smith and Ros Davies purchased this chalet in 2006

Why Robert Smith and Ros Davies chose Nendaz

The view is out of this world! Perched atop a steep hill, we have an uninterrupted view across the Rhone valley to the Alps across the way, with a view stretching over 100kms from the Grand Muveran, les Diablerets and its glacier, all the way to the Bletschorn. Even cloudy days bring their magic, with clouds shifting like veils, revealing and concealing the landscape. At nighttime the lights of the villages and Sion (capital city of the Valais canton) twinkle in the valley below with the galaxies and constellations in the skies above. Look carefully and you may see shooting stars!

Chalet Le Joyau is really our second home. As such we have furnished and styled it for ourselves. Hopefully you will find that it is stylish and comfortable rather than being a bland and characterless rental property.

We let the chalet out at reasonable rates so that we can share it with other, like-minded, people who we hope will love it as much as we do. We always love to hear your stories and feedback, and - even better - photos of you and your family and friends enjoying the beautiful region.

What makes this chalet unique

The chalet is centrally located, easily accessible both on foot and by car and is within a c.10 mins walk from the main ski lift.

We have a large ski and boot room and we also provide a washing machine and tumble dryer for our guests' use.

And have we mentioned the view?? Not just from the balcony but from every window.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I very much enjoyed my stay here. This could be the best place on earth.

The chalet is situated close to the centre of the village. It is just 5 minutes from bars, restaurants and shops. Nearby shops include a supermarket and bakery. The chalet is just 5 minutes from one of the largest ski shops in Nendaz, Neige Adventure. We have a special arrangement with the shop whereby chalet guests can obtain a 10% discount on ski lessons, equipment hire and purchases. Kids: Nendaz is a great resort for families, with plenty to entertain the kids. In winter there is a children's snow park up at Tracouet with a 'moving carpet' lift for tinies, and a tubing and sledging area. The ski schools take kids from the age of 3 and the creche in Nendaz is able to take infants from 18 months. For those with younger children, our concierge service offers a personal babysitting service. In summer there's lots for kids to do around the resort. In the village there is a large adventure playground with trampolines with bungee harnesses.

This home was a delight.

  • 5 of 5

The Chalet le Joyau is a wonderful chalet with panoramic views of the mountains and of the valley below. It was clean, fresh and felt new. The owners' generosity in allowing renters to use the washing machine and dryer was of immeasurable help in our multiweek vacation! We walked to town for dinners, and Haute Nendaz has lots to offer as far as shops and activities, as well as several grocery stores. The owners also forwarded many brochures in electronic formats so that we could plan our activities in the area. We felt completely comfortable in emailing the owner several times and always received a quick response. Far and away the most enjoyable rental experience of our vacation! I recommend this home and these owners highly. Thanks for a wonderful time in your chalet

Gemütliches Chalet

  • 5 of 5

Das Chalet "Le Joyau" ist ein sehr schönes und gemütliches Haus, mit einem wunderschönen Panoramablick auf die gegenüberliegende Talseite, auf das Tal und auf das Dorf. Sehr ruhig gelegen, aber dennoch alles gut erreichbar. Mit dem Gratisskibus des Dorfes sind alle Zufahrten zu den Talstationen der Skigebiete und des Dorfes perfekt erreichbar, auch für Nichskifahrer. Das Auto haben wir 1 Woche nicht gebraucht. Das Interieur ist sehr gut und zweckmässig ausgestattet. Das Haus wird sauber und gepflegt gehalten. Der Kontakt zu den Vermietern Rosalind und Robert war absolut sehr freundlich, entspannt und kompetent. Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt mit 6 Personen sehr genossen und können das Chalet "Le Joyau" weiter empfehlen. Wir danken Rosalind und Robert für ihre Gastfreundschaft in ihrem Chalet. Gerne werde wir bei einem weiteren Aufenthalt in Nendaz in dieses Haus zurückkehren.

Christmas in Nendaz

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home. Perfect for our needs (family of 4) with the most breathtaking views. Fully equipped and plenty of room allowing us to have the Christmas that we have always wanted. Warm and cosy inside and Easy walking distance to supermarkets and restaurants and a very short drive to ski lifts, spectacular mountains and snow.

We would definitely recommend this property and hope to visit again or day.

Thank you.

Great Chalet in the "French" Swiss Alps

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property, well maintained and as described. Excellent private parking. Excellent communication with the owners via email. Supermarkets and restaurants within easy walking distance, also a very nice boulangerie (bakery) close by. We enjoyed hiking, and riding the telepheriques nearby. We also enjoyed the Wednesday market in Nendaz, and the Friday market down in the valley in the town of Sion. I would recommend this chalet to a friend or relative, and would return again.

Perfect position and a wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful week away from the attentive owner sending useful info before our trip and answering all of our questions to a house that had everything you could wish for. The property is as described but the views from the balcony have to be seen first hand to do the photos justice. As a first time visitor to Switzerland the walking and views were stunning. There is so much to do both locally around Nendaz and further afield. As dog lovers we enjoyed visiting the St Bernards at the Grand St Bernard Pass (a very picturesque drive of about 1 hour). Although if the weather is kind as it was for us just about all week (25c) the sun rise at Mont Fort was unbelievable. The house itself was in a perfect position for us a short walk from the town on a quiet road. Comfy beds, handy washing machine and dryer and many more small things that made for a wonderful weeks stay. Will definitely return

A beautiful chalet

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 5 with a 6 year old boy. We had a great holiday and this beautiful chalet made our trips out even better as we knew we were ending our day in this perfect Swiss gem. The chalet was clean comfortable and well equipped. The owners were helpful and friendly and excellent to deal with. None of us had a negative word to say. We couldn't have asked for more. Thank you

Haute-Nendaz-4 Vallees
Car: not necessary

Nendaz is one of the best kept secrets in the Swiss Alps. It lies at the centre of the world class Verbier - 4 valleys ski area which, as a high altitude resort (up to 3,300m!) has guaranteed snow cover throughout the season.

Nendaz and the surrounding area is an all year-round resort. From mountain biking or walking on the high alpine passes through to relaxing by the open-air pool or thermal spas and exploring the many local vineyards, there is something for all the family throughout the year.

Other Activities: spa baths, vineyards and wine tasting

Ski: With 92 different lifts serving 412 km of marked runs (and a wealth of off-piste), there's plenty in the 4 Valleys to keep skiers and boarders of all abilities occupied for many a season. The more demanding terrain is in the southern part of the ski area, which is as easily accessible from Nendaz as it is from its more famous neighbour, Verbier. The un-pisted itinerary runs from Mont-Fort (3330m) and Mont-Gelé, and the Tortin and Gentianes routes, all demand respect from the experienced skier.

To the east are the gentler, groomed pistes above Veysonnaz and Thyon - although the 1km vertical descent down the red from Ethérolla to Mayens-De-L'Ours - including the world cup run 'La Piste de l'Ours' - would be testing without a break.

Nendaz itself sits in the centre of this outstanding ski area, and has swift , snow guaranteed links to the neighbouring valleys via the Tracouet gondola, just ten minutes walk from the chalet. There is also a regular free shuttle bus service between Nendaz and Siviez.
