Located on the 2nd and 3rd floors, each bedroom is uniquely designed. Our Duplex Room is set across two floors with a bathroom located up a set of stairs. Room 3 has a corner balcony but does not have a balcony. All bedrooms (apart from the Duplex Room) can be made up with double-king size or twin beds.
Located on the 2nd and 3rd floors, all four large bedrooms are very spacious and have balconies and large bathrooms with separate showers and bathtubs. All bedrooms can be made up with double-king size or twin beds.
The Bunk Room is located on the 2nd floor and can accommodate six children. It comes equipped with three sets of bunk beds, a separate shower room, a plasma screen TV with a DVD players, a games console and bean bags – perfect for some time away from the adults.
Located on the top floor (4th floor), with magnificent views of the mountains and valley opposite, both Master Suites are very spacious with feature centerpiece fireplaces, a sitting area and mini-bar. For families who would like interconnecting rooms, there’s a secret door in the bookcase which connect the two Master Suites together.
The food served at The Lodge is one of the highlights of your stay, and they serve a mix of Swiss and international cuisine. Dining can be as formal or informal as you wish, from full four-course gourmet feasts to healthy meals with the children. Meals can be themed, traditional or a mix!
In summer meals are served communally, giving you a chance to share what you’ve been up to during the day with other guests. The rates include breakfast, light lunch or picnic, and dinner as well as all drinks (including alcohol). You can dine al fresco (the chef loces to cook up a storm on the BBQ!) whilst enjoying the fresh mountain air with a cocktail in hand on the terrace.
Why not take a day out to learn about how the wine is made and enjoy a tasting or two at the Wine Cellar in Sion?
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 station. 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 nearest international airport is in Geneva, which is about a two hour drive to The Lodge. Geneva International Airport is served by many of the major international carriers, with flights from most European destinations taking no more than three hours. Private planes are able to land at Sion Airport which is only 45 minutes by car from The Lodge. Please note that Sion Airport closes as soon as darkness falls. Zurich airport is about a 3 hour drive to The Lodge. The Lodge can also arrange helicopter transfers on request from Geneva, Zurich and Sion Airports at extra charge.
The Lodge recommend taking the train directly from Geneva Airport to Martigny, a town about a 30 minute drive from The Lodge, or onward to Le Châble, which is a 15 minute drive. We can arrange transfers or taxis for an extra charge to get you to the chalet, or if you alight at Le Châble you can take the cable car directly to the lift station 250m from The Lodge where we can pick you up. The journey takes nine minutes and definitely has the wow factor. Please check with us at the time of booking for when the lifts are operating. The train journey takes slightly less than 2 hours (2 hours 15 minutes to Le Châble) and is a very pleasant way to see some spectacular scenery around Lake Geneva!
If you’re visiting us for a longer stay The Lodge recommend hiring a car at the airport in Geneva as this will give you the flexibility to explore the area and there are some fantastic trips to Italy and France which are only an hour’s drive from The Lodge.
Absolutely! The Lodge is a great place for a family holiday as we have plenty of things for children to do. We have a welcome pack and plenty of great activities available on request, including children’s DVDs, toys, a games console, books, games, and treasure hunts in the evenings if they are not too tired after a long day out. The Lodge don’t offer a set programme, but rather a range of activities suitable for every child. We can also arrange babysitting for an extra charge; just give us at least 24 hours’ notice, although during busy school holiday weeks and peak times The Lodge will need more time to make arrangements. Special food and beverages or simple snacks and light meals can be prepared. Cots are available on request.
