Veysonnaz Resort Guide

Veysonnaz is a relatively small, family-friendly resort and, at just 15-minute drive from Sion, is one of the most accessible resorts in Switzerland’s largest ski region – The 4 Valleys. More low-key than its more famous neighbors of Verbier and Nendaz, Veysonnaz attracts a family-orientated clientele who are attracted by its laid-back atmosphere, terrific views, and snow-sure pistes. When you do feel like a glitzy lunch, the glamour of Verbier is easily reached in about 45 minutes on skis via the fast and efficient lift system. At 1,400m Veysonnaz tends to have excellent snow conditions with many of the north-facing pistes holding the snow well into the spring. If you are looking to buy a property in this part of Switzerland, then Veysonnaz’s central location within the 4 Valleys is of particular appeal. Property investors here will find that they can easily reach any other parts of the ski region for a hearty alpine lunch and still comfortably make it back to your apartment or chalet in time for some late-afternoon drinks on the terrace. It is that central location, and property prices that can be up to 50% less than Verbier, that has made Veysonnaz an attractive place for a Swiss property investment. You will find enough shops, bars and restaurants to keep you happy as well as a new spa complex. Veysonnaz is however predominantly a resort for relaxing and enjoying family time with some breath-taking alpine scenery thrown in for good measure!

Property in Veysonnaz

Swiss property investors are attracted to Veysonnaz as it offers a good central location in the 4 valleys but at much more affordable prices than nearby Verbier.

Chalet and apartments can be found for sale in prime locations, near the main gondola, at up to 50% cheaper than Verbier and about 20% less than nearby Nendaz.  

The village centre is made up of mainly older properties that were built in the 1980s and 1990s – many of which have been bought by Swiss residents who use them as private holiday homes.

In the last few years, development has focused on the small hamlet of Les Mayens – about a 10-minute walk from the centre where you have direct piste access and great views across the Rhone Valley.

Here it is now possible to find ski-in ski-out apartments for sale from about CHF 600,000 or modern new-build chalets from CHF 1.5m.

Being a snow-sure, dual season resort rental returns tend to be above average in Veysonnaz so it is good choice for Swiss property investors who would like to rent out their new apartment or chalet.

Winter in Veysonnaz

At 1,400 m Veysonnaz is a great, central location from which to explore the huge 4 Valleys ski region.

Whether you are heading off to Verbier or, in the other direction, towards Les Collons for the day, nowhere is “too far” to reach for an enjoyable mountain lunch and be back in plenty of time for the last lifts.

If you enjoy staying closer to home there are plenty of excellent intermediate reds and blues around Veysonnaz that are shared with Thyon and Les Collons. The modern, 8-person gondola takes you out of the centre of Veysonnaz and up to Thyon where there are well-kept pistes and very little lift queues.

Keener and more experienced skiers can head off to find the world renown off-piste and powder runs around the Mont Fort and Mont Gele. Widely recognised as some of the best skiing in Europe pistes here will take you over 3,000m and challenge even the most advanced skiers.

Summer in Veysonnaz

The Valais region of Switzerland is known as to be the sunniest canton with typically over 300 days of sunshine each year. Situated just 15 minutes from Sion - the historic capital of Valais region - Veysonnaz is a delightful place to visit in the summer and has greatly expanded its summer-based activities over recent years.

As in the winter, the area attracts families who are looking for an authentic Swiss alpine summer with some of the most dramatic scenery in the 4 Valleys.

Famous for its bisses – medieval irrigation channels that were built to channel glacial water to the local vineyards – Veysonnaz has built a network of delightful hiking paths that alongside the bisses.

As well as the usual hiking and biking trails, Veysonnaz has expanded its summer offerings to include trail running, tennis, yoga, e-bikes, disc golf, indoor and outdoor swimming and a new ‘fitness’ centre in the woods.

There are three 18-hole golf courses nearby – Sion, Sierre and Crans Montana.
