My wife and I have been skiing and living in Verbier for best part 40 years. We often take our four sons with us also.
Simon ENGLANDER purchased this apartment in 2005
We first skied in Verbier 40 years ago and bought the chalet approximately 30 years ago. We were taken aback by the incredible views of the mountains as well as its vibrant nightlife, although at night you’ll never be disturbed by any party noise.
We love to be able to put our skis on outside the chalet and ski down to the bus stop. Also, we are surrounded by breathtaking, snow covered mountains whilst enjoying the stillness at night and are still be so close to the hustle and bustle of all that is going on down in the village with bars, restaurants and night clubs.
No room here, but: There is a new lift pass system that no one seems to know about. I thinks its Ski Club or similar. You pay for the passcard about CHF 30 or so and then its like pay as you go. Also some days are half price (think Wednesday). So no pressure to Ski if White Out, 2 windy (lift closure) or 2 much snow (like early Dec 2012 - lift closure). If u have already bought a week's pass then its hassle to get a credit (not sure they do it anyway) and my Boys worked out it was cheaper. Also no queues to buy lift pass (small b4 Xmas) if your Group policy is day passes. Also no hassle if for the most part you go to Verbier area then want 4 Valleys (reflected in the price of 8 day pass) but not the Club Pass! Also just skiing Savoleyres is cheaper and will be reflected in the Club price, but NOT the 8 day pass.
Verbier is not cheap - but it need not be expensive either - if you shop carefully, look at the Ski- Club Pass System, be careful what restaurants you eat in, Verbier is great place to be - it has all the charm of a small Village - but is a giant resort as far as the skiing is concern - don’t any one tell you that the resort is for advanced skiers only , it's not - it is suitable for all levels , young and old.. Have fun!
Sort of flexible - all depends - give us a call..
Notes on prices:
Guests are responsible for any local taxes if due.
This apartment was in a really good location for skiing and in the centre of town. Apartment itself was very nice. Would stay here again.
A lovely apartment in the centre of Verbier.
Tastefully decorated. Well appointed and easy to stay in. A real delight.
If you plan to drive then check the route first with Google Maps as there are new roads and the route it suggests IS the fastest and your GPS might not take you the right way. If u fly then use Alpybus or Alpine Express to get you to Verbs. The normal drop-off is at Brunet Bus stop - 10 min walk to apartment. Train is very pretty esp if snow around and is about the same price. Don't forget the bubble from Le Chable shuts early so make sure you don't miss it o/w there is a bus I think or taxi.
Verbier Can be accessed by Car from the UK using Euro Tunnel or the Ferry crossings and the time from Calais to Verbier is often as little as 8 hours by car.
Geneva or Sion Airports service Verbier and the distance from Geneva is only 160 kms and takes less than two hours. Sion is serviced by City Airport in London and is only about an hour away , about 60 odd kms.

Wet clothes are a nightmare. Solution is easy. In front door. Down one flight stairs or lift and leave in laundry room on racks to dry. No one else ever seems to do it other than us. Then out the two doors and up 2 floors to apartment door (in lift of course) . Going to and from apartment to laundry is so so easy and often much quicker than a 2 / 3 story house. With the sauna, laundry, table tennis room, ski-locker and cave its like having 40m2 more "useful" living space. Very few apartments in Verbier have this esp the newer ones as floor space is such a premium for the newer ones. Remember we have re-furbed to a ***** standard.
The Jumbo In-Ground 5.000 litre waste bins are 5 seconds across road and so please take rubbish out daily and don't leave outside apartment.
When making your decision where to stay this coming season please, please bear in mind what a difference a triple aspect apartment makes - views and windows/door on three sides of the apartment and balconies on East and South aspects. I can't emphasise enough what a difference it makes for the main living space to have light coming in (and views) from the LHS and the front of the apartment (see the images). You immediately have the impression (illusion?) of a small Chalet and not an apartment with this aspect and light.
And for those of you that think Verbier (CHF) is expensive - think again: Beers in the Pub (Mont Fort - 2 mins walk away) are half price in happy hour and just CHF 7 in peak. U can buy 24 really great Gralsberg (yes with a G at 5.2%) beers for about CHF 11 in Denner. Set back next to the Farm. They also do cuts of meat sometimes near half of Migros. Beers in the mountains are just CHF 8 and in the Carlsberg (new in Mountain below Atelas) a Stein is just CHF 13.
