Kitchen equipment, crockery and glasses are plentiful and fixtures and fittings all modern and comfortable. Bedrooms all have wardrobes/storage space. Stair gates, 2 cots and 2 high chairs can be provided for young families. There is free indoor garage space available for 2 cars opposite.

With access to Verbier and all the 4 Valley skiing in winter and, in summer, plenty of wonderful mountain activities to be enjoyed, it's perfect for families or groups of friends travelling together.

Transport: By air - New for 2018 - direct flights into Sion Airport from several regional UK airports.

There are also multiple daily flights operating to Geneva (Cointrin) from most of the major UK and European airports. UK carriers include British Airways, Swiss Air and Air France and budget airlines such as Easyjet, Jet2, Flybe, Monarch. Other European connections include Zurich, Berne, Basle-Mulhouse, also Chambery (France) and Milan (Italy).

If you prefer to take your own car, the drive from Calais to Sion will take approximately 9/10 hours followed by a straightforward drive via a wide mountain road to Les Collons. Snow chains are required by law in winter.

Unique selling points of the property: Chalets are usually built on the outskirts of mountain villages and can be tricky to access, especially in winter. Often it means getting into a car every time you want to go anywhere. Not so Chalet Etoile Polaire, which we think has the perfect situation in the middle of a village which is part of Switzerland's famous Four Valleys ski circuit. It does not suffer from the over-crowded pistes or the lengthy lift queues which can affect its more famous neighbour Verbier. Thus, a central location coupled with first-class skiing without the hefty price tag, makes Les Collons a relatively undiscovered little gem!

In summer, the unspoilt beauty and Swiss alpine charm of the region is captivating. Crystal-clear mountain air with long hours of warm sunshine - this area enjoys a micro climate boasting the same hours of sunshine as the South of France! There are a myriad activities on offer such as walking and hiking, mountain biking, golfing, wine tasting, chilling out in thermal springs, discovering small, chocolate-box villages or exploring historic towns - altogether it makes a great base for a family holiday.

What better way to relax and revitalise but when you want more, there are plenty of activities on offer Mountain walking (300 km marked trails) including gentle walks along the 'bisses' (ancient water irrigation channels) or more strenuous hikes at altitude. Mountain biking (250 km trails, including the amazing 44km trail at Mont Fort - local bike hire). Tennis - 2 courts close by. Wine tasting tours in local vineyards. Guided local nature walks. Mini golf and Swimming pool at Thyon. Paragliding school at Evolene. Horse riding and trekking. River rafting on the Rhone. Beach and water sports at Lake Geneva. And for children, a local playground, Happy land, the Adventure Forest at Vercorin and water park at Aigle.

One of the best centrally situated chalets in the mountain village of Les Collons, Chalet Etoile Polaire (it means 'North Star') stands at a snow-sure altitude of 1800 m. Les Collons is on the eastern fringe of the fabulous Four Valleys which includes world-famous Verbier and it offers a ski circuit of over 400 km with 99 lifts up to an altitude of 3300 m. This is Switzerland's highest and most extensive linked ski domain and here you'll find a superb mix of skiing and snow boarding for all abilities.

The chalet enjoys a quiet, central location, set back from the main street, just a 2/3 minute walk from the main Trabanta hi-speed chairlift and it's virtually opposite a ski bus stop. Access is never a problem (as with so many other chalets located up steep, winding roads) and all the village amenities, including sports/ski hire, supermarket, bank ATM, shops, bars, cafes and restaurants are right on your doorstep. The uninterrupted, panoramic views from the chalet balcony extend right along the spectacular Herens valley to the mighty Matterhorn and beyond.

Other Winter Activities: skating; cross country skiing; snow shoe walking; toboganning; husky dog sleigh rides; thermal hot springs; paragliding; heli skiing; walking

Summer activities: walking and climbing; mountain biking; mountain scoooters (trottinettes); tennis; golf and mini golf; swimming; paragliding;

Golf: There is an excellent 18 hole golf course at Sion (20 minute drive) and another 6 world class courses within an hour's drive including the renowned Championship course at Crans Montana and those at Villars, Loeche and Verbier.

Ski: The small village of Les Collons is situated at the eastern edge of the 4 Valleys, Switzerland's highest linked ski domain. It's a skiers' paradise with access to over 400 km of pistes and 99 lifts interconnecting in an extensive ski area around Verbier, the latter which can easily be skied in a day. With opportunities for skiers and snow boarders of all levels, the more advanced will relish the challenges of Etherolla, the limitless off-piste and the mogul fields near the Mont Fort Glacier; intermediates will enjoy the long, cruising runs around the Printze area including the famous World Cup 'Piste de l'Ours' and beginners will gain confidence on the wide, open slopes just above the village at Thyon. A snow boarders' freestyle park at Thyon is considered the best in the area and video filming allows everyone to see your exploits on the big,wide screen. The local accredited Swiss ski school also has a children's kindergarten and creche for the tinies (18 months - 3 years).
