About this listing
Our fabulous penthouse was completed in summer 2012. With double aspect cathedral windows looking out over the Val d'Anniviers for sun-peaked mountain views at breakfast right through to crisp linen and vintage blankets at bedtime, we've tried to think of everything for a real home from home.
With 5 bedrooms (2 double, 2 twin, 1 bunk), 2 bathrooms, a mezzanine chill-out/media area and open plan kitchen/living area, there's plenty of space for extended families and friends. Underfloor heating throughout and a woodburner ensure you are warm and cosy in the winter months, while wide opening picture windows and french doors to the balcony ensure fresh Alpine breezes in the warmer season.
Grimentz is a picture-postcard perfect Swiss village at 1650 metres, served by one telecabine lift from the village to the start of the ski area, so there is no ugly infrastructure to spoil the view. The skiing is north-facing, high, and snow sure. A new high-speed gondola opened for the 2013/14 season taking vistors to the top of the neighbouring resort, Zinal, effectively doubling the lift-served ski area. The off-piste opportunities in the area are legendary, and we can recommend a guide to ensure you get the most out of the area and stay safe.
Ski in for most of the season and we are just a few steps away from the telecabine in the morning. Out of the ski season, classic hiking routes and (lift-served) mountain biking start right outside our door. Outdoor swimming pool in Vissoie (10 minutes away) and swimming lakes at Sierre and Sion (30/40 minutes). There is a via ferrata and small climbing wall in the village, a 'squirrel run'/high ropes course with zipwires in St Luc, and bungy jumping further down the valley.
And after all that fresh air and activity, we are right next to Florioz, the most popular bar in town, for drinks and light snacks!
2 parking spaces (one under cover)
Equipped for kids
