With the launch of our Family Programmes for 2016, we have had the exciting task of updating our portfolio of properties with some fantastic new options for this Summer. Although we have organised lots of accommodation for our clients over the past few years, there is looking to be even greater demand for this year and as such, we have spent the past few months searching high and low in Verbier for some of the best chalets and hotels around. Plus, we quite enjoy looking around new chalets!
Often the biggest surprise to our families who have booked with us in previous years is the vast range of chalets and hotels on offer in Verbier. For a small alpine village, there are a huge number of properties ranging from small self-catered apartments to luxurious catered stand-alone chalets complete with swimming pools and spas.
Depending if you are coming as just parent and child for a week-long stay, or as a large group with your extended family and friends for a month, there is truly something for everyone. You just have to know where to look, and that is where we come in.
Today, we take a look at a few of our favourite properties to give you an idea of just some of those available to you.
Fully Catered – From CHF 30,000 per week for Summer 2016 – price on application
