The anticipation was huge, we were allowed to test the Reka holiday village Zinal for a week. During our arvrival, we realized what spectacular mountain scenery the picturesque mountain village of Zinal, where the Reka holiday village Zinal is located, offers. It is located at 1,680 meters above sea level in the Val d’Anniviers, surrounded by beautiful nature and surrounded by imposing four-thousand-meter peaks. From spring to autumn, well-marked trails invite you to discover the region, practically right in front of the apartment. Of course we did that and went hiking almost every day. But more on that later. In winter, it offers a snow-sure ski area and guests can ski until well into the spring or on the cross-country ski trail.
The Reka holiday village Zinal is a settlement of 5 houses with a total of 42 tastefully furnished apartments. In addition to a large, beautiful playground, there is also a pump track. You can borrow a kickboards and BMX at the reception. Also a children’s program (Rekalino) is offered, from treasure hunt about tinkering biscuits (biscuits). For the older children there is a youth room with black box, billiard and table tennis. While the children are entertained and are having fun, parents can enjoy a glass of local wine in the cozy lounge with its fireplace and reading area.
There is also a swimming pool with bubble bank and massage jets. What could be better after a hike or skiing? For the little ones there is a children’s pool with slide and lots of toys. There they are allowed to splash as much as they can. And once a week, a yoga class takes place in the morning, to start the new day with total relaxation.
On three evenings a week you can dine very well in the in-house restaurant. They offer a fondue and raclette evening, such as a burger / BBQ chat. And from Friday to Sunday you can indulge in a small but delicious breakfast buffet. Otherwise, there is a bread service. So every morning you have fresh bread for your own breakfast.
Hiking in Zinal
The absolute outdoor highlights for us were the beautiful hikes, which can be started directly from the Reka holiday village. What could be better than being in nature, surrounded by breathtaking mountain scenery.
From Sorebois to Zinal: Take the cable car to Sorebois. Once at the top, the children can use the great playground and parents can have a coffee on the terrace of the mountain restaurant before descending to Zinal in about 2 hours. An ideal family hike, not too strict for the kids and always a beautiful view of the countryside. Especially the four-thousand-meter mountains that you have all the way over are already very impressive.
