HES-SO Valais/Wallis study of second home owners

The current health crisis, with the obligation to telework for a large majority of the population, has led to changes in living habits in terms of where people live and stay. From a development perspective, it is important for mountain regions to understand what are the motives that have led some people to use their second homes more and what could be improved to sustain this trend in a post-pandemic future.

Verbier Tourism has been asked by the Institutes of Health and Tourism of the University of Applied Sciences HES-SO Valais/Wallis to conduct a study on this subject among owners of second homes. The objective is also to evaluate the interest in developing offers in the field of physical activities, well-being, and culture. Indeed, this would allow, among other development measures, to propose a living environment favorable to well-being and health while contributing to increase the attractiveness of the region.
