Inside Sir Richard Branson’s Mountain Hideaway

The Verbier Lodge forms part of Sir Richard Branson’s exclusive Virgin Limited Edition portfolio and is truly magnificent. Perched high in the Swiss Alps, its incredible location perfectly lends itself to year-round mountainside retreats. As one of the most loved ski resorts in the Alps, Verbier really does offer something for everyone and attracts worldwide visitors to its sun-drenched slopes every winter. Renowned for its formidable ski runs which are matched with a lively après ski culture and an abundance of restaurants, a ski holiday in Verbier is second to none. It’s no wonder that Sir Richard Branson regards Verbier and The Lodge as his favourite mountain getaway.

The Lodge can accommodate groups of up to 18 comfortably over five floors consisting of seven suites and two top floor master suites. The additional children’s bunk room can sleep up to 6 children or young adults and is fitted with a plasma screen TV, an Xbox games console and bean bags. It’s important that a chalet caters for all your needs, no matter how you wish to spend your ski holiday and The Lodge has incredible facilities to do just that. Let your hair down and enjoy a drink or two in the party room or retreat to the tranquillity of the spa area to soothe aching muscles after a day of skiing.

The chalet has ample space to accommodate all guests to dine together and enjoy a drink or two around the log fireplace afterwards. Complete your day by sinking into the large comfy sofas with a hot chocolate or instead enjoy a glass of champagne under the stars from the jacuzzi on the terrace.
