This getaway has maximum space, scenic beauty, and privacy. The views are breathtaking, Matterhorn included. What is unique is the 600 sq. meters of flat lawn.It is the real deal nature wise, without the expensive resort. There is a 3* resto near by.
The house is on 3,500 meters of land at 1,300 meters altitude. It is in a very sunny location with lots of trees around the back of the house giving it great privacy. It is well suited for a family vacation or small group conference. The appointments are very practical and you have everything you need. The beds are very comfy.
There is a store and post 10 minutes away and a large commercial area at 20. Sion, the capital of Valais, is 25 as well as the hot baths of Saillon.
Switzerland it amazing in itself, but most of it is expensive and crowded. The equivalent of both the far West and California are here in Valais at considerable savings. Valais has a micro climate with close to 300 sunny days a year due to its East- West orientation. If it rains try a natural springs spa at 25 min from the house, with spaces for naturists as well. What else??
*A most amazing transport system, we use trains more than the Japanese.
* This is one of the finest wine regions in the world, hard to know because we drink it all here.
* This is still a non GMO country and all food and produce are outstanding.
* It is clean and efficient, recycling is easy.
Interaction with guests
As much as they want. I am a great bilingual guide and have all the web sites as well as the flyers for this region. I have taken people everywhere when I can if they are responsive and fun. I am a great cook and know about the best local food here. If they need nothing I am gone. Flexibility is key!
Other things to note
The open-face fire place is amazing and you will spend your time around it. Wood is not included in the price, we pay 120 francs a cord.
Please do not smoke indoors. Do note that we have a outdoor septic tank and do not let large pieces of food or anything poisonous down the drain. No candles upstairs. Please do not leave perishables, garbage, or bottles. There is a waste station on the way down that makes it easy. The key must be left in the appropriate box. There is a 2 Franc tourist Fee per person per night, less for children.

I am a naturopath living in Valais. I spent many years in dance and theater and then went on to study natural medicine because I know it works. I like both refined and rustic places. As I live high in the Swiss Alps I some times miss the sea.
