The Lodge is Sir Richard Branson’s stunning nine bedroom chalet in Verbier, Switzerland, one of the Alp’s most exclusive resorts and Europe’s hottest ski spots. Situated on a quiet road just 250m from the main ski lifts and backing onto one of the returning pistes, The Lodge is in a perfect location for the slopes.
General Manager (with the help of his 14 staff), will ensure every need is catered for by offering the highest level of service and attention to detail.
The Lodge is perched high in the Swiss Alps in a forested area just a five minute walk from the town of Verbier, and only 250m from the main lift sta- tion. If in winter you find walking in ski boots too difficult, they’ll be happy to drop you off, and you can ski straight back home as The Lodge is on a returning ski run. Verbier is 51 miles, or 82 kilometres east of Geneva as the crow flies, but the mountains and Lake Geneva tend to get in the way if you’re driving!
The Lodge can accommodate up to 18 adults in 9 bedrooms and up to 6 children and young adults in a specially designed bunkroom. Rates during the winter season are quoted for seven nights’ exclusive hire of The Lodge for 18 guests, and are priced in Swiss francs. You can reserve individual rooms at The Lodge during the winter season if the chalet has not been booked for exclusive use six weeks prior to your arrival date.
In winter of course it’s more than likely you’ll be spending plenty of time on the mountain, but when you get back to The Lodge, there’s still plenty to do! Pull off those restrictive ski boots and relax in the lounge in front of a roaring fire curled up on a comfy sofa. or if your muscles ache, take a dip in the indoor heated pool, or warm yourself up in the indoor or out- door Jacuzzis. Later on, tuck in to some of the exquisite dishes from their kitchen order what you want, or let them sur- prise you! You can even watch the chefs at work and pick up some tips while you try a few glasses of red or white from our wine cellar. Once a week you can listen or party to live music from one of our tal- ented local musicians.
The Lodge also has a fully equipped gym, a steam room and a party area. You can shoot some pool or dance the night away all underneath a twinkling disco ball.
For the avid skier or snowboarder Verbier is paradise. There are five resorts spread across four valleys, all of which are tied into one single lift pass, offering you one of the largest skiable areas in the Alps – for all levels of skiers. If you want to slow it down there are also four kilometres of cross-coun- try skiing trails around The Lodge, as well as some great snowshoeing trails. for the ultimate rush, Verbier has a 10km tobog- ganing run for adults and children alike. for a spectacular view of Verbier and the moun- tains, try paragliding! And that’s not forgetting the après-ski scene. Verbier has a great se- lection of bars, restaurants, and nightclubs.
The Lodge itself provides a unique and fun setting: try some curling on the mini-ice rink, swim in the indoor pool, be pampered in the spa, or just relax after a day on the mountain whilst enjoying a wide selection of tailored menus and fine wines.
