In Valaisan patois, "Tzoumer" means "to rest". And if contemplative people will find their happiness in this name, you will often hear the old people call La Tzoumaz by its previous name "Mayens-de-Riddes".
Located in a beautiful green valley above the Rhône in the canton Valais, La Tzoumaz has one main access road, which starts in the town of Riddes, 13 kilometres away (and at exit 24 of the Martigny motorway).
If driving is not an option, La Tzoumaz is accessible by public transport form the Riddes train station. Just a 200m wall form the station , is the cable car station. You must take the téléphérique up to Isérables and connect with the post bus to La Tzoumaz. From there the bus will drop you in the center of the village.
For information on access via public transport, visit the SBB website which shows hours and prices. Please note the cable car and post bus have restricted operating times.
