Verbier is justifiably famous as one of the most outstanding ski areas in Europe. Situated on a sheltered south-facing plateau high in the Swiss Alps, the resort is well known for its high number of sunny, blue sky days and stunning seasonal chalets. Along with the neighbouring resorts of Thyon, Veysonnaz, and Nendaz, Verbier forms part of the vast 4 Vallées ski area. The resorts are linked by lifts with electronic passes to provide a total of 95 different lifts, with the longest single run an astonishing 31km. The highest point in the region is the Mont-Fort at 3330m which forms part of the local Verbier area. From your chalet you will have easy access to the whole region allowing you to explore this beautiful place.
