From hiking in the mountains on a sunny day, hitting the slopes with friends at one of the numerous skiing resorts, to enjoying local delicacies, life in the Valais offers many unique advantages. It is a beautiful part of the world where the scenery and activities change dramatically with the seasons. Located in the heart of the Swiss Alps, the Valais offers a wide range of housing options.
Unless you have lived in an alpine region before, moving to the Valais will offer you a whole new lifestyle – relaxed, healthy and close to nature. It is a paradise for winter sports and summer activities such as hiking, cycling, climbing and more. You are only a stone’s throw away from two of Switzerland’s most iconic landmarks, the world-famous Matterhorn in Zermatt and the Great Aletsch Glacier, the biggest glacier in the Alps as well as some of Europe’s highest vineyards. Should you miss city life, the Swiss cities of Bern (1 hour), Zürich (2 hours) and Geneva (2.5 hours) are within easy reach for a weekend visit – as is Milan in Italy (2 hours).
Moving to the Valais is your opportunity to enjoy the best of both worlds. You can pursue your career at one of the world's leading suppliers to the pharmaceutical, healthcare and life science industries while enjoying the Valais style of life.
