After a 2 hour drive from Geneva, we arrived at the alpine village of Verbier, an elegant ski resort, located in the heart of the mountains, where your stay here will be memorable, as was mine! Verbier offers more than just a ski resort, it comes complete with a range of activities to suit all needs, be it a relaxing spa weekend with an alpine chic view, cultural galleries, stunning cuisine and of course the perfect ski slopes.

The chalet itself contains 5 bedrooms, and can accommodate up to 10 adults and 2 children, making it the perfect choice for families looking for a holiday with a difference. Chalet Mon Izba also boasts a large indoor pool, cinema and a TV room dedicated for the kids.

The Bella Coola and Le Ti are two adjoining chalets that can be booked as 1 estate with room to accommodate 20 guests, making it ideal for large groups or families. Despite its large and spacious nature the chalets décor, handpicked antiques and authentic wood make it feel more homely and traditional.

Overlooking the breath-taking Savoleyres ski area, the Victoria 111 is a stylish, luxury apartment located in the heart of the village. Contemporary chic in design, with an open plan kitchen, diner and living area making entertainment around the wood burning fire amongst family and friends easily attainable.

Chalet Truffe Blanche
Located in one of Verbier’s most desirable locations this secluded and private chalet epitomises opulence and pure indulgence. This grand chalet boasts an impressive 9 ensuite bedrooms each designed with a distinctive classic and timeless style, it is the perfect place for large groups.
Following a day on the slopes, retreat to one of the 9 treatments rooms to self-indulge, warm up by the open fireplace, detox in the Finnish sauna or take a swim in the 15m indoor pool created from pure onyx.
If you are intending to travel with a large group of friends or family, then I would highly recommend this stunning chalet.

Chalet La Vigne
This newly built contemporary and sophisticated chalet is built into the mountain side above the secluded Patier area. Each of the 4 bedrooms boasts unparalleled views of the surrounding peaks, to be enjoyed from its many terraces.
La Vigne offers a plethora of activities to unwind at the end of a busy skiing day including a cinema room, an indoor pool, wine cellar and outdoor Jacuzzi.
I would definitely recommend taking a light swim in the mornings, and watch the sun rise over the mountain peaks through the floor to ceiling glass windows.
QT Tip: Enjoy some wine tasting in the evening with an array of exclusive wines available.
No. 5, Penthouse
The No. 5 penthouse apartment is located on the Route de Médran, and conveniently situated near the Médran lift station, providing you with easy access to the slopes. Take in the stunning views of the surrounding mountain peaks on its private balcony, or enjoy the view from the sensuous outdoor hot tub.
