The chalet Edelweiss (formerly Champéry) in winter

Discovering Champéry when it's covered in snow, in front of the 'Dents du midi", is a charming experience in a village of traditional wooden chalets, a walk through an enchanting wonderland of lights and history.The residents are welcoming, and tell stories about their village and traditions in their gentle local accent. During the time of year when Champéry is covered in snow it also forms part of the "Portes du Soleil" ski area, with its 650 km of groomed slopes in Switzerland and France. The ski field is famous for its pistes of all levels!

The rooms at the Chalet

The 50 rooms of the Chalet, which are spread over the "Maison du haut" and the "Maison du bas", are decoareted in a cosy and comfortable manner allowing you to feel at home. The rooms are named after mountain tools.

Each room is different from another, either with views over the "Dents du Midi" mountains or out over the traditional village of Champéry. Some of the rooms have connecting doors, and families with babies or very young children are given priority for these rooms.

The remaining rooms are side-by-side rooms for which we will happily provide you baby-phones and cots for your babies. Each room is equipped with a phone on which you may receive direct calls and which you may also use to call external lines.

All of our rooms are non-smoking. You will find ash-trays on the balconies or at the bar. Our bathrooms are equipped with bathtubs and/or showers. In our bathrooms you will find bathrobes and towels at your disposal as well as a hair dryer, body and hair gels and soaps.
