of the first valleys be- yond Lake Geneva, easily reachable

mountain and water sports are close by and there are many
choices for winter and summer activities. Well signposted
hiking trails pass just behind the houses. Many overnight
lodges are available on the hi- king routes. Regular hikers
know that the most colourful and quietest period in the
mountains is autumn.

downhill and cross country skiing which are renowned in
this area. From the house you can reach four major ski
resorts within a 15 minute drive. These are part of the
Portes du Soleil, the largest linked ski area in the
world. You can even ski off piste back to the hou- se,
weather permitting. Villars, Verbier and its glacier,
Gstaad, Crans-Montana etc. are within reach for an
alternative day's skiing.

highlights in many towns like Montreux, Martigny,
Lausanne and Geneva. Thermal baths are available in
several nearby places.
