LES AGETTES (MAYENS DE SION), VALAIS
4 Valleys ski region
In 2017 the municipality of Les Agettes merged into Sion. This means that there are still lots of possibilities for new build construction available in this area. This is great for those that do not just want to buy any chalet for sale, but want to be included into the design of their own ideal ski chalet in the Swiss Alps.
The village of Les Agettes is located on a 5 min drive from the centre Veysonnaz that is a part of the 4 Valleys ski area with 412km of piste. This corner of paradise is at the foot of the mythical Bear Trail in Veysonnaz, known for its 30 Ski World Cups, at the gateway to the largest ski area in Switzerland: the 4 Valleys. This white paradise covers 412 km of pistes of all levels. The snow is guaranteed all winter long thanks to the snowy winters and with the back-up of more than 200 snow cannons spreaded around the entire area. Connecting Veysonnaz, Thyon, Nendaz and Verbier via Mont Fort skis is no longer a dream, it’s a reality! Sliding sports enthusiasts will enjoy pure bliss on various tracks.
THE LOCAL VILLAGE
The village itself is small with just a handful of café’s, bars and B&B’s, which still allows you to enjoy the real local lifestyle. In the village there are also a couple of old chapels (from a traditional old wood architecture design to a more crispy white construction) that are definitely worth the visit.
The area offers several hiking trails leaving from de la Vernaz (1.5km away), like for example the 2 bisses of Salins and the Grand Bisse de Vex. There are 4 guided trails with up to 6hrs of walking into breathtaking landscapes.
