Luxury chalets in Verbier are going to be in super high-demand in 2022. That won’t remove the premium on quality though, and these two superlative properties available through Finest Holidays, are among the very best that Switzerland’s most fashionable Alpine ski resort has to offer.
Chalet Norte and Chalet 1936 each have plenty that makes them unique and different – Chalet Norte’s perfect perch, or Chalet 1936‘s pop art feel – but they also share some virtues: fabulous locations, the ultimate in comfort and service for large parties, and world-class design wherever you look.
They do justice to their settings. Verbier is at the heart of the enormous 4 Vallées ski area, where you can enjoy a long season of high-quality skiing to suit every ability level. At 1,500 meters with slopes going up to 3,300m and spreading out for more than 400km, the nearly 90 lifts open up world-class Alpine skiing from nursery slopes to off-piste adventures.
Luxury chalet Norte is beautifully placed to take advantage of that pristine snow, and is considered a landmark property in Verbier. It is perched high in the resort close to the Savoleyres lift and just 7 minutes’ drive (there is ample parking) from the Médran station.
You won’t rush to leave Norte though. Although the design is the work of a London interiors specialist – Verbier has long been popular with British guests – it is very respectful of local traditions. Wood is the dominant material of Chalet Norte, complemented with finishes of understated elegance and topped off with the latest luxury furnishings and tech entertainment systems.
Up to 14 guests can share the 5 lift-linked floors and six bedrooms of Norte. A master suite enjoys the top-floor and the best views, while the addition of a stand-alone apartment, bunk- and twin-bed rooms to the usual doubles makes it a flexible home for families or business- or party trips.
A spa and wellness centre (swimming pool, hammam, sauna, Jacuzzi, outdoor hot tub, bar and more) will help you work on any post-ski aches – or your serenity – and a big cinema room is just one of several fantastic social spaces. Chalet Norte can either be enjoyed alone, or taken together, for large groups looking for unrivalled luxury in the Alps, with Chalet Sirocco – making up the exclusive Alpine Estate.
You might feel like a time traveller in Chalet 1936, which despite its foundation-date name, has the feel of an Austin Powers take on the 1960s. You’re also very much in the 21st century though in a Verbier luxury chalet with the best facilities in its 1,000 square-meter footprint: an 8 by 3 meter pool, a full spa with hamman and chill-out area, lift-linked floors, outdoor hot tub, cinema room, gym, games room, WiFi throughout and much more.
This big property sleeps 14 guests in its 7 en-suite bedrooms. Each is individually styled, and it’s the styling of Chalet 1936 that might be its most eye-catching feature. There are big, bright, graphical images throughout the chalet, along with retro-futurist and vintage stylings.
Like all the best chalets in Verbier, Chalet 1936 also pays homage to its surroundings. It has wonderful mountain views, including from its south-facing balconies. Pop art is complemented with antique-wood backdrops, natural stone fittings, and of course, working fireplaces wherever possible.
This chalet is wonderfully stylisht, but it’s also outstandingly practical. The location is a 5-minute walk from the village centre and right on top of the Médran lifts. Kids have an adorable bunk room, there is dining seating for the whole party, and service packages to suit everyone.
Verbier is an enchanting destination. The resort is one of Switzerland’s most historic, and has a charming, traditional air. It’s very popular with Swiss visitors, and has been attracting overseas visitors sicne the early 20th century. That means plenty of beautiful traditional Swiss architecture, and a well-developed luxury shopping, dining, and social scene with a packed events calendar.
Probably at the top of the resort’s culinary card is La Table d’Adrien, an Italian restaurant with a coveted star from the French Michelin Guide. They describe the chalet as „chic“ and the cuisine „imaginative“. They also recommend Le Grenier, which is Swiss through and through, and the perfect place to sit by a roaring fire and looking out at the Alpine landscapes.
The world-famous W Verbier hotel has added several fine bars and restaurnts to the resort’s charms in the past few years. Le Dahu and Chez Dany (at 1,715m altitude) are among the best slope-side dining options.
If the dining is sophisticated, Verbier also has a reputation as a lively party resort that’s popular with youngsters and off-piste adverture seekers. There’s a huge choice of drininking and dancing spots, with L’Etoile partnered with Dom Perignon, Vie Montagne offering a more hipsterish, craft-ale experience, and Le Rouge attracting the liveliest crowds.
For a break from the skiing, take a walk through the streets of the resort centre, lined with boutiques selling everything from the best ski fashions to some wonderful mountain art. Boutique l’Igloo, Fellay Mode and Sport Boutique, and SABI Verbier are all worthy of your time.
