Iglu Ski Expert Review You get the best of both worlds in Chalet Hotel de Verbier, a traditional style property with lots of alpine charm and high standards of comfort, food and space. The Chalet Hotel has an excellent location bang in the centre of town with direct access to all the bars, shops, restaurants, hire shops and transport links.
It’s walk up a hill to get to the main ski lift, about 400 meters uphill to Medran but compared to many properties in Verbier; even the ones the rich and famous own, you’ll be better located than them. At the end of the day the 400 meters is a stroll down hill, the perfect cool down after skiing the best slopes in the world and you’ll go past a few classy bars on the way.
Chalet Hotel de Verbier is opposite the Hotel Farinet which has the popular Farinet Lounge Bar. Après ski here cannot be beaten with live music and extensive cocktail menu.
It’s increasingly hard to get into Swiss ski resorts at a good price, Chalet Hotel de Verbier offers this and I recommend everyone to go to Verbier at least once in their lives.
Chalet de Verbier - Verbier, Switzerland
Conveniently located on the "Place Centrale," Chalet Hotel de Verbier provides a superb base from which to explore Verbier and the spectacular "4 Valleys" ski area.
The Medran gondolas, which provide the main access from the centre of the resort up to Les Ruinettes and on to La Chaux and Mont Fort, are less than 5 minutes' walk away. Alternatively, take the ski bus which stops just 50m from the hotel. The hotel's public areas are furnished in an attractively rustic Swiss style and provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere, with a comfortable and spacious lounge with log fire, where afternoon tea and cake is served daily, and adjoining bar with TV.
