On location in Verbier Part 1
We recently spent a few days in the exclusive Swiss ski resort of Verbier viewing many of the chalets that are part of our portfolio, as well as brushing up on our resort knowledge. If you ask any two people their ideal ski chalet location and no two answers will be the same. Some want to be in an exclusive, quiet location with mountain views, whilst others want to be in the thick of the action.
Keeping that in mind on our recent trip to Verbier we ensured we viewed a wide selection of different resort ski chalet locations. We had such a busy 3 days that we are definitely going to have to split this blog into 2 – so here is part 1!
If you’re looking for ski chalet accommodation at the heart of the action in Verbier then look no further than the fabulous new luxury chalet Agate, located at the bottom of the Medran ski lift in Place Blanche. You could not wish for a more convenient, central and ski-in location. With skiing and après on your doorstep what more could you want? Well if it is also that is should be an affordable luxury property, then look no further!
Chalet Agate is a modern and stylish chalet apartment in an outstanding location. This well-appointed and spacious luxury ski property has 4 en-suite bedrooms sleeping 8 people. The master suite has a large private terrace with mountain views and its own fireplace, perfect for a cold winters night snuggled up with a loved one.
The open plan living area provides a convivial space where it’s easy to imagine friends and family enjoying evenings of fabulous food, fine wines and great company. All this along with a sauna to ease those tired ski legs and private terraces to enjoy the stunning mountain views.
With an affordable starting price of 12,400 CHF on a self-catered chalet basis or 23,700 CHF on a catered chalet basis, this is sure to be one of our most popular Verbier ski chalets this winter.
Another fabulously located property is Chalet Bella Coola. Set back from the road and surrounded by a large private garden this chalet really feels away from it all whilst actually being at the heart of Verbier.
You are just a 2-minute chauffeur drive from both the Medran and Savoleyres ski lifts. To be honest this chalet deserves a whole blog to itself (watch this space) as I honestly can’t do it justice in a couple of paragraphs.
On entering the chalet, you step into the grand entrance hall and immediately you have a feeling of being in a refined country estate. The open plan living area includes a spacious lounge with double height ceiling all centred around a large roaring fireplace, a dining area providing ample space for hosting lavish dinner parties and an open kitchen all surrounded by picture windows providing panoramic mountain views.
For rest and relation this chalet provides an exceptional spa with hot tub, large steam room and fabulous swimming pool. I loved the bright and airy relaxation room with bar. It’s ideal for enjoying some adult time with an après drink with the safety of being able to watch the children playing in the pool.
The 5 spacious en-suite bedrooms are all luxurious and sophisticated in design with deep pile carpets, indulgent fabrics and all the modern touches you expect in a luxury chalet in Switzerland.
For several families holidaying together, corporate trips or a large celebration you can rent the Bella Coola Estate, which includes this fabulous chalet and its neighbour Chalet Le Ti. Together you have Bella Coola Estate, two chalets, 9 beautiful bedrooms and an array of facilities – perfect for large group ski holidays.
However, take Chalet Le Ti by itself and you have a classic and cosy ski chalet with 4 en-suite bedrooms sleeping up to 9 people. Perfect for small groups looking for a private setting whilst still being only minutes from the action in the centre of Verbier.
On entering the chalet I was immediately taken with the traditional and authentic feel of this charming property. Sumptuous sofas nestle round the roaring fire inviting you to settle for an evening in the company of close friends and family whilst the dedicated games room with pool table and TV provides a haven for the children to escape to.
The outside space with this chalet is truly special with a large private terrace providing breathtaking views from the hot tub. During the spring months you’ll find the terrace is drenched in sunshine, a spectacular spot for soaking up the sun and lounging with a book in the late afternoon.
The chalet has a warm and welcoming ambiance making you feel like you’ve arrived home. It’s easy to see why you’d want to return and at a starting price of 12,900 CHF on self-catered chalet basis or 24,040 CHF on full catered chalet basis including exceptional service levels and 24hr in-resort chauffeur service its certainly one of our best recommendations for a truly authentic ski holiday in Verbier.
