St-Luc and Chandolin are situated on the sunny eastern slope of the Val d'Anniviers (Eifischtal) and enjoy a majestic panorama. Spectacular scenery, attractive walking country and the ultra-modern astronomical observatory will keep boredom at bay.
Amidst native pine and larch woods, Chandolin nestles securely on the sunny side of the Val d'Anniviers and has retained all its authentic charm. This ancient village with its typical timber houses and situated at an altitude of 1936 m is among the highest, continuously inhabited settlements in Europe. The neighbouring village of St.Luc still reflects all the past splendour of the Belle Époque in the Val d’Anniviers. The simple guesthouse, built in 1859 on the northern edge of the village of St. Luc, quickly developed into the Grand Hotel Bella Tola & St-Luc and, in 2001, it was voted the Historical Hotel of the Year and received the label "Romantik Hotel".
The sunny ski region of St. Luc and Chandolin, with its splendid views, is the biggest in the Val d'Anniviers with a 60-km network of pistes is accessible by chairlifts, rack railway and 10 ski lifts.
There is an airport within two hours drive, so ski weekends, snowboard breaks and short ski holidays to Chandolin are perfectly feasible. Sion Airport is just one hours drive away, in good driving conditions, so you can be on the piste quickly.
