Région Dents du Midi: The possibilities are endless

The Région Dents du Midi encompasses 6 charming villages perched high in the Swiss Alps near the south eastern end of Lake Geneva. Nestled in the spectacular Val d’Illiez, these villages are part of Les Portes du Soleil, the world’s largest international ski & bike area and one of the most beautiful places in the world. 

In the summer, some 800 km of hiking trails and 600 km of mountain bike trails await outside your front door, with quaint alpine restaurants and sunny terraces at strategic intervals along the way. In the winter, the snowy landscape is a study in stark contrasts, from the hushed mystery of the frozen back country to the invigorating hustle and bustle of the state-of-the-art groomed ski slopes.

No matter the season, this is a place of exhilarating peaks and inspiring views, where the border between France and Switzerland has all but disappeared and your garden stretches as far as the eye can see.

In a land with no boundaries the possibilities are endless. At the risk of sounding cliché, there really IS something for everyone in the Région Dents du Midi! 1201§
