History of the Resort
Anzère is a young resort. In fact, before the 1960s, there were only five small chalets here. As a result of its ideal location on a south-facing slope, Anzère underwent rapid development with the construction of holiday apartments, chalets, hotels, ski lifts and other tourist infrastructures. This is how the Anzère resort came into being and became a modern holiday village on a human scale. There are numerous “mayens” (rudimentary alpine dwellings made of stone or wood browned by the sun) in the surrounding area. The photos below clearly show how tourism has developed in the area.
