SION, my Swiss homebase


Sion is situated in the south-western part of Switzerland and the capital of the French speaking canton of Valais. As of December 2018 it had a population of 34,708 residents.


The topography of Sion is very specific – situated in the middle of the Rhone Valley, the town is dotted with hills. Flanked by picturesque snow-capped peaks, the exquisite region of Sion is also hailed as the most sun-kissed area in Switzerland, enticing visitors throughout the year.


Sion, nestled at the bottom of the castles of Valère and Tourbillon, is proud of its 7'000 years of history. In this surprising city, culture shows many facettes: the patrimonial evidence meets the most contemporary conception.


Settled within one of Switzerland’s most important wine producing areas, Sion has much to offer for the appreciators of fine wines and Michelin-starred restaurants.

Furthermore, is the biggest shopping centre in the Valais with more than 700 shops and cafés-restaurants spread out in town.



Situated in the Valais Alps, which is in close vicinity to ski resorts Crans-Montana, Les 4 Vallées, Saas-Fee, Verbier and Zermatt being one of the preferred destination by ski lovers.

A winter paradise for skiing, somewhere between heaven and earth. The majestic four-thousanders form a magnificent setting dedicated to winter sports. If you like winter, you’ll love Valais! The possibilities are boundless and snow is guaranteed. No great surprise when you realise that Valais is the region in Switzerland that, thanks to the altitude of its ski areas, promises the best snow conditions on its 2000 kilometers of slopes.



Sion International Airport, accommodates private jets and business jets. 

The Sion airport opened in 1935, being the only airport in Switzerland with a mixed license, meaning civilian and military flights can operate alongside each other.


In 1991 Sion International Airport upgraded with a new terminal and the ILS, allowing the possibility for chartered flights into Sion Airport.

The modern day Sion Airport terminal offers a restaurant with an open air terrace with panoramic views of the Valais Alps.
