Localizada na enorme área de esqui de Les Portes du Soleil, a estância de Champery em Val d'Illiez, no Valais Baixo, ainda preserva muito de seu charme tradicional.
The village is situated at 1050 m in the Chablais region at the foot of the Dents-du-Midi and the Dents Blanches and is one of Switzerland's oldest tourist destinations. Along the village street are numerous traditional chalets with their carved balconies and typical roofs, while visitors are delighted by the charming little shops, bars and restaurants. In the village is one of Switzerland's few bell-foundries still remaining in production.
A pista de esqui de Pas de Chavanette – muitas vezes chamada simplesmente de "Le Mur Suisse" (O Paredão Suíço) – é um dos mais íngremes do mundo. Embora tenha apenas um quilômetro de comprimento, a descida compreende uma diferença de altitude de cerca de 400 metros, com inclinações de até 50 graus.
On the high plateau of Barme at 1500 m, young and old can practise climbing. In this enchanting place, which is also ideal for family outings, woodland walks or mushroom gathering, there is a 40 m high limestone cliff with marked climbing routes of varying degrees of difficulty. The people of Champéry indulge their love of tradition and craftsmanship by staging numerous local festivals, and they gladly invite visitors to discover folk dances performed by the village ensemble.
