Steve's Nendaz top 5

drivetime // Explore Switzerland // Sept. 1, 2016

If you're looking for a luxury break and that classic Swiss backdrop, Nendaz is the way to go. Steve did the legwork for your, making a BIG sacrifice and testing out all the area has to offer to deliver you his recommendations for the best of the best:

Steve's Nendaz top 5


Walking the bisses (the irrigation channels cut into the mountains that the Valais is famous for) in glorious sunshine with the sound of cowbells and the smell of local cheese from the farms in the air (could it BE any more Swiss?!)


Enjoying a sundown spritz on the terrace of the Hotel 4 Vallees with the wife and Nelio Da Silva (there he is with Steve below), the legendary service manager who looked after us like a boss all weekend


The local Valaisian apricot jam for breakfast. Apricots are grown across the Valais and it makes breakfast an extra special occasion, it's next level confiture!!


The incredible spa at the hotel in which we used every room (there are loads!)  to go from freezing cold in the ice grotto at -20 degrees to a steaming hot Finnish sauna and hammam


Enjoying the wonderful hospitality and local produce of the Valais on a gorgeous summers weekend, and pressing up my nose to the real estate agencies windows dreaming of a little apartment in the mountains!
