Sir Richard Branson’s nine-bedroom chalet in Verbier, Switzerland, The Lodge is situated in one of the Alps’ most exclusive resorts and Europe’s best ski spots offering world-class skiing, fabulous après-ski as well as a dedicated team who will ensure every need is catered for this winter.
Situated on a quiet road just 250 metres from the main ski lifts and backing onto one of the returning pistes, The Lodge is in a perfect location for the slopes. The ski area around Verbier includes 195 kilometres of marked pistes of all standards and of every exposure divided over the sectors of Les Ruinettes, Les Attelas, Savoleyres, Bruson and within the resort.
For those looking to try something different, guests can go cross-country on snow shoes, or see Verbier from the air with a tandem paraglide. Or if guests fancy escaping to the mountains to recharge their batteries, they can take a dip in the indoor pool or venture outside and keep warm in the Jacuzzi, let off some steam in the steam room or relax and unwind with a treatment from the resident beauty therapist.
The Lodge, part of the Virgin Limited Edition collection, can accommodate up to 18 adults in nine bedrooms and up to six children and young adults in a specially designed bunkroom. Rates during the winter season start from CHF 84,643 and are quoted for seven nights’ exclusive hire. Rates include breakfast and afternoon tea, as well as dinner on all but one night during the week, when guests are able to sample the best of Verbier’s culinary delights. All guests are encouraged to treat The Lodge like their own home and are welcome to help themselves to the drinks they would like at any time.
