Portes Du Soleil (CH) - Champery
Review provided by a previous Chaletfinder advertiser.
Summary
Unspoilt Swiss village in the Portes du Soleil. Champéry has kept its charm and is a great base to explore the massive Portes du Soleil in the summer and winter.
Description
The village is nestled at the foot of the Dents du Midi and the Dents Blanches. The streets are lined with a mixture of old and new swiss style chalets giving it an authentic charm. It has the palladium sports centre where there is a indoor and outdoor swimming pool. A curling rink, iceskating rink and tennis courts.
During the winter and summer there are many entertainments around the village. This summer every Sunday morning there is a market selling local produce.
There are two ways to access the Portes du Soleil either by the cable car in the centre of the village or by the high speed 6 man chair at Grand Paradis. There are many aprox 650 Kms of pistes/trails for all ranges of levels.
During this summer season the the region has the multi pass where you can profit from using the lift system and local sports facililities. For a cost of Chf 1.50 a day, which is a huge saving and a fantastic idea.
Not alot of people know that this region of Switzerland produces wine . During the summer here in Champéry the local producers come for a couple of weekends for wine tasting. Also you can go to the vineyards direct to taste the local wines.
