A charming Swiss town located in the canton of Valais, in the Val d'Illiez municipality at the foot of Dents du Midi summit (3,257 m a.s.l.). Located just 5 km from the Swiss-French border, Champéry is a great base for exploring the entire Portes du Soleil area with over 600 km of slopes. The closest neighbouring resorts are Les Crosets, Champoussin, Morgins and Avoriaz (France). The nearest airport is in Geneva, and the valley itself is easily accessible from Swiss Highway 9.
