The Lodge Verbier
- Seasonal activities
Look around to admire the unique beauty of the surrounding snow-capped mountains that rise up vertically. Now, take a deep breath and feel how the breeze enhances the freshness and purity of the forested area embracing you. It is so revitalizing to finally be in Verbier...
At this time, we know the temptation of putting your skis on and testing yourself down the 19 black slopes at “4 Vallées” is strong. But this week is not only about rising up your adrenaline, it is also about being pampered in this welcoming haven of peace.
Sir Richard Branson definitively knows how to do it right - proof of this is his alpine chalet. This is a truly lavish hideaway perched in an isolated area of the Swiss Alps, just a five-minute walk from the town and 250m from the Medran lift station.
At The Lodge Verbier you will feel a real home-from-home experience as it is provided with ultimate comfort.
After an intense family-day exploring the surroundings with snowshoes, the Virgin Touch Spa will be your best ally to recover. Their soothing aromatherapy treatments have been specifically designed to revive and relax the senses.
The day is not over yet, so while you are waiting for dinner to be served and your children play in the bunkroom, you uncork a bottle of Champagne to share a special moment with friends in the warmth of the fireplace.
A gastronomic feast combining the best of both Swiss and international cuisine elaborated by Chef Gerwin from Le Manoir, is an unbeatable way of concluding this intense journey.
It is time to go to bed and get some proper rest. Tomorrow you will be up high in the sky on a paraglide! This is a unique chance to see Verbier from a whole different perspective.
