First floor: two bedrooms with double beds and a bathroom (WC + shower).
Basement: washmachine and dryer and enough space to leave your skis or bikes or other material.
Interaction with guests
Our family is based in Switzerland and in the USA. I live a few kilometers away from the chalet and will be happy to welcome you on your arrival. We are also available to provide tips and recommendations on the area and its treasures.
Les-Mayens-de-Sion is at 1,300m and a very popular place for people in search of nature and relaxation. There are many chalets around, some very old and others more recent. In the winter, you will find yourself a stone throw away from the famour 4 Vallées skiiking area accessible by the "Les Collons/ Thyon 2000" ski resort (10 minutes away). In the summer, you will find a plethora of hiking options, including the famous "Grand bisse de Vex", a wonderful hike through the forest linking Les-Mayens-de-Sion to Nendaz, a 11 km hike. The first stretch of 4.6 km is easily doable with a stroller.
There are a few restaurants around. The closest is "Le Relais des Mayens-de-Sion", about 500m away. Other options are located in Les Collons, Vex and Sion, including some excellent pizzerias.
The chalet is accessible by public transportation from Sion with the Theytaz bus system ( Follow the "Sion-Les Masses-Thyon 2000" line and stop in "Les Mayens-de-Sion, Mayens des Plans". That same bus will take you all the way to the ski resort and runs 3-4 time a day. The car remains the most convenient way to get around and visit the region. You can drive all the way to the chalet and there are many parking options around the property.
Other things to note
A one-of-a-kind experience: don't miss out on the sauna that you will find in a tiny cabin nested in the forest a few meters away from the chalet. Summer or winter, you can find it by following the wooden steps from the main chalet.

Mon enfance passée dans un village de montagne m'a donné le goût des choses vraies. J'ai ensuite ressenti le besoin de découvrir d'autres coins de la planète, de me nourrir du chaos des villes et surtout de rencontrer des gens qui vivent et pensent différemment. C'est riche de ces expériences que je suis retournée vivre dans les Alpes il y a quelques années. Adepte de la "slow life" et du "carpe diem", j'essaie de profiter au mieux de chaque instant passé avec ma famille et mes amis, et d'apprécier les bonnes choses de la vie.
