Buying Experts for Luxury Property in Nendaz
The Alpine Specialist guide to Nendaz, Switzerland
The ski resort
Nendaz is a younger ski resort than Verbier, its more famous neighbour. The pretty purpose-built village is a quieter alternative to the fast-living attractions of Verbier. Despite its youth the resort’s infrastructure is well-developed with plenty of restaurants and bars for après-ski entertainment. The ski resort prides itself on being family friendly and there are good facilities for children. Sitting on a sunny shelf above the Rhone valley, the resort is 30 minutes by car from Sion airport as well as an easy motorway drive from Geneva airport.

Nendaz links into the "Four Valleys" Switzerland's most extensive ski area. It is possible to ski to Verbier as well as the other Four Valley resorts of Les Collons, Mayen de Riddes and Veysonnaz. With over 400 kilometres of piste, the ski runs are varied with suitable descents for every level. The ski area also boasts some of the most-easily accessed off-piste terrain in the European Alps. The ski runs directly above Nendaz are pretty tree-lined descents with expansive views over the wide, flat valley below. The main gondola leads to a sunny plateau, which is an ideal learning ground for children and beginners.
