    Nax is located just 11 km from the state capital city SIon. At 1300 meters, the Panorama over the Rhone Valley is just stunning. When arriving in Nax turn on your left after the Vieux Chalet Restaurant and head on foot to the viewpoint Pelleivro: welcome to the Sky Balcony!

    Small is beautiful!

    A stressless skiing day in Valais is still possible thanks to the skiing area on the slopes of the Mont Noble. Take your time and begin your journey on the chairlift through a larch forest... slowly you will hear a nice music from the top station... DD welcomes you with his smile and traditional good mood... then head to the Mont Noble up to 2600 meter. Admire the view from the top and ride on the snowy boulevard Les Grands Esserts one of the longest slope in Valais with its 10km of pure pleasure. Do not forget to make a stop by Victor Bar @ Le Chiesso for its famous Gluhwein (vin chaud) to warm up and enjoy the exclusive snowy beach in comfortable deckchair...
