A perfect setting for boys & their toys!
A perfect setting for boys & their toys!

We have spent our summer holiday at La Tzoumaz.

The weather was perfect (25° in the village / 30° in the valley). Ideal conditions for biking, hiking, sightseeing and relaxing. The region offers more than enough possibilities for various activities (even with babies).

For the relaxing part, the luxurious chalet offers all the comfort we needed: a large sunny terrace, the spacious livingroom and the very well equiped kitchen. The garage is a plus as a storage for food, drinks, roofbox, bike-carrier and mountainbikes. We really appreciated the number of bathrooms so everyone had his own.

Thought this was a summer holiday?!

Dear Wong & family,

This has been one of our best family holidays ever and I would just like to thank you and your family for allowing my family to share your home.

Chalet Cathay was perfect in every way. Attention to detail throughout the chalet was unbelievable. I cannot imagine many chalets in Switzerland with this level of equipment and standard of decor. The setting, built against the hillside in La Tzoumaz, with views that are breathtaking.

We had a fun-packed week and one we shall all remember for many years to come.

I hope we shall have the opportunity to book Chalet Cathay sometime again. Since returning from our holiday, I note the October 2014 VOGUE magazine lists Chalet Cathay number one in its article titled ‘Cool Runnings’. It’s certainly number one in our opinion.

Not much of a view from here!

We had a truly fantastic couple of weeks at Chalet Cathay. The chalet itself is in a beautiful, peaceful setting and has everything you could wish for and more.

The Alps really is a fantastic place to visit in the Summer and Chalet Cathay is perfectly located to explore, either by jumping on the cable car down the road or a drive further afield. The mountain views are simply stunning but there is so much more… cable cars, lakes, dams, wild flowers, snowball fights, ice tunnels, thermal baths, Swiss National Day fireworks, hiking, climbing, waterfalls, gorges, glaciers, fondue, apricot tart, chocolate…

A wonderful holiday in a lovely chalet.

Who would've thought a family reunion could be so much fun?!

Our stay at Chalet Cathay was possibly our best family vacation ever. We are spread across opposite sides of the globe, and we couldn’t think of a more perfect place for us to reunite.

The chalet is a haven, placed in a picture-perfect setting. From the peak of Mont Fort reached by several gondola rides, to the shopping and dining over the border in Chamonix, the diversity of nearby activities was enough to satisfy all age-groups and lifestyles.

The chalet itself was more than well-equipped with everything you could ever need – even travelling with a small child. It was so welcoming and spacious we were happy on days to simply laze around and not even leave the chalet!

A timeless family holiday (to be rebooted with a LOT more snow than what fell that week!)

It is rare to find chalet accommodation that lives up to expectations, but Chalet Cathay not only lived up to expectations, but far exceeded them. We had very variable weather during our stay ranging from blistering sunshine to snow and the chalet worked on all occasions, whether it was sitting on the balcony admiring the view of the Rhône valley or relaxing in front of a roaring log fire!

La Tzoumaz itself is a lovely base, ideal for exploring the local towns, the high passes into France and Italy and just enjoying the mountain scenery or even just spending an afternoon in the local pool.

In all we had a great holiday and would recommend it to all, be that families with small children or groups of adults, Chalet Cathay caters for all.

Lovely view from where I'm sitting, but didn't we come for the skiing?!

We had a perfect family holiday in La Tzoumaz and the Valais.

Chalet Cathay was absolutely amazing and went beyond our expectations. Everybody loved it. The chalet really has everything you need, even if you are travelling with a baby.

A truly wonderful place!
