Chalet Isikhala | Veysonnaz (VS)

Pulling up outside Chalet Isikhala and we all let out a collective « wow!» and had to check the address to make sure we were in the right place.

It’s a beautiful wooden chalet perched in the hillside with incredible views. The first thing the children found when we walked through the door was the play room and to be honest, they spent so much time in there, we had to remind them to eat! Jude didn’t even feel the need to open his own personal emergency box of Lego which he takes everywhere with him.

The chalet is arranged over three floors which would make it perfect for groups as it offers everyone plenty of space. The main living area on the middle floor is spectacular with large windows offering incredible views out over the mountains and the valley below.

The bedrooms are beautifully designed and the bed was extremely comfortable. The master bedroom is wonderful with magnificent views, and an en suite bathroom complete with jacuzzi bath. The children chose their favourite options from the two bunk beds in the cosy top room which also had toys and plenty of books to keep them busy.

We arrived on Friday evening and had brought food to enjoy in the chalet the first evening and it was wonderful to sit on the terrace and enjoy a glass of wine with this view!

Sarah and Oli have beautiful taste and every little detail has been considered, from the luxury soaps in the bathrooms, the delicious smelling bed sheets and the fluffy bathroom towels, to the high quality furnishing and decoration.


There was really everything you might need for a perfect holiday and we came away with lots of wonderful family memories. One of our favourite things was the little cork boat that was in the chalet with the suggestion that we take it to the Bisse de Vex with us. Jude loved this idea and quickly found a suitable sail (leaf) for the boat and we tied it to a long stick so that he could pull it along in the water. This was such a lovely touch and made the walk really enjoyable for the children. We saw so many play areas along the path, it was such a great morning for everyone.


We also took the telecabin up to Thyon to admire the views and have a drink. It's a beautiful spot and on the Sunday we found somewhere to pick our own apricots which we all really loved, especially Jude and Alba who wasted no time in filling their baskets.

Sarah was super helpful and extremely organised with lots of knowledge of the area and things to do with the children. We’ve added a few ideas to the end of this article to help you plan your holiday.


They have a 5/5 rating on Airbnb and it's absolutely well deserved! So now you know where to spend your next summer or winter holiday in Valais :-).
