Your destination is Ayer, some 2 hours to the East of Geneva beyond Verbier but before Zermatt. Ayer is a totally unspoilt village in the picturesque valley of the Val d’Anniviers, in the Swiss canton of Valais. Apart from the weather (300 days of sun annually), the skiing, the spectacular landscape, the local culture, the flora and the fauna makes Valais and Ayer, in particular, an exceptional holiday destination both in summer and winter. 


The roads up the Val d'Anniviers from Sierre and up to the chalets at Ayer are cleared of snow by the ever efficient Swiss and there is parking close to each of the chalets. The road ends at the chalets, so there is almost no traffic. 


We offer three self catering chalets:


Chalet Grouse is a luxurious chalet that sleeps ten in five bedrooms: two double and three twin rooms. Three bedrooms are ensuite and the two top floor bedrooms share a bathroom.  French windows in one of the twin rooms and one of the double bedrooms open onto the hillside and the two bedrooms on the top floor have access to the balcony. There is copious cupboard space in each bedroom. The central floor has a large sejour: open plan with sitting room, well eqipped kitchen and dining area.
