Prolin is in the heart of the Swiss Alps. Situated on the mountainside of the Val des Dix we overlook the Val d'Hérens. In our charming village you will be close to well known ski resorts and many tourist attractions.
From our chalet, built in the 1860's, we have breathtaking views over the valley and the mountains. A footpath takes you from Prolin to Hérémence, a journey of around 30 minutes, and others will lead you further along the valley or higher up the mountain.
As well as from hiking you could try one of our mountain bike circuits. There are also tennis courts in Les Masses just 5 minutes away.
December until the end of March marks the skiing season for which we are ideally placed to take advantage of winter sports. A chairlift at Les Masses will take you to Thyon / Les Collons, a resort which makes up part of the "4 Vallées" (from Thyon there is the possibility of a day outing to Verbier for good skiers). The resort is 10 minutes from Prolin by car.
For those who prefer the peace and tranquillity of the mountains to the hustle and bustle of the ski resorts, just ten minutes further up the valley, in Pralong, there is a cross country ski run and several winter walking paths.
A large part of our commune is a nature reserve and hunting is restricted. This means it is not unusual to see wild animals such as stags, roe deer, mountain goats, marmots, hares and other fauna while out walking.
