Verbier is one of the world’s iconic ski resorts. With some of the most extensive piste and off-piste skiing in the Alps, it is popular with those who covet thrill and adventure. Attracting a sporty and wealthy clientele, Verbier has a healthy nightlife and appeals not only to the British and Scandinavians but also the Swiss and the local Geneva jet setters. With many of the rich and famous owning beautiful chalets here, Verbier is a high-end resort with great infrastructure, a high class reputation and restaurants, après-ski and shops to match.
There is usually a reasonable choice of apartment and ski chalet properties for sale in Verbier. With just 3200 permanent residents, much of the resort’s property stock is second homes. Close to the Savoleyres lift are the chalets of Sonalon with magnificent views over the resort. Similarly, in Les Esserts you will find more luxury chalets than apartments, which are concentrated closer to the Place Centrale and Médran. There has been a large amount of investment in the resort including a much-needed luxury hotel, the W, the sports centre, as well as a redevelopment of the railway station down at Le Châble. On the residential property side, we note little new space and more redevelopment, hence increased availability of even penthouse and studio apartments. Verbier has a loyal following given holiday rental returns and consequently demand for one, two and three bedroom ski chalet and apartment property here is always high.
If you’re looking for property in the Swiss Alps, a number of stunning locations are worthy of your attention and consideration. However, few are more quintessential than the ski resort of Verbier. The main resort in the famous Four Valleys, Verbier has long attracted a healthy turnover of youthful and sporty patrons owing to its idyllic location, regular sunshine, vibrant nightlife and proximity to Geneva Airport (a roughly two-hour car ride). Whether you’re looking for a place in which you can party hard in your downtime or an investment property that offers a consistent and healthy yield, you could do much worse than this stunning resort.
Join us as we take you on a guide to everything that’s special about Verbier…
If you’re the kind of seasoned skier or snowboarder who thrives on challenge and is easily frustrated by the hordes ambling towards the beginner slopes (or if you want to cater to an elite skiing clientele) you’ll love Verbier.
In skiing terms, the resort is not for the faint of heart. When skiers come to the Four Valleys, they know that Verbier will test their skiing abilities and provide a challenge.
Verbier offers a true high-Alpine experience with many demanding pistes and off-osite runs, with some of the most stunning panoramic views in the Alps. Fortunately, thanks to the Four Valleys’ comprehensive lift system of 92 ski lifts across 412km of runs, traversing this beautiful landscape is easy and pleasurable.
Verbier continues to be a favourite amongst skiers of all generations so investors can be sure of a steady stream of enthusiastic visitors during the ski season. The only thing Verbier really lacks is tree-skiing but even this can be found in nearby Bruson. It’s fair to say that Verbier is among the best places in the world for advanced skiers.
Of course, there’s more than enough to get excited about off-piste. There are a number of stylish bars and cafes in which skiers can relax and refuel after hitting the slopes. There’s Vie Montagne famous for its exquisite coffees, craft beers and fine wines. Or there’s the unassuming Ice Cube where hungry skiers can dine on a range of reasonably priced but immensely tasty burgers and sandwiches. Those looking for a more upmarket experience will want to check out The Etoile Rouge Supper Club, with its combination of Scandinavian and Eastern European cuisines.
Verbier attracts a class of customer that skis hard and parties harder and the nightlife in Verbier is every bit as enthusiastic as the slopes. Start your night out with a relaxed drink in Hotel Farinet before ramping things up in the Pub Mont Fort and dancing the night away in the multicultural melting pot that is Le Rouge.
If you’re looking for an unforgettable ski resort experience, Verbier will not disappoint you.
