Verbier, the home of scenic slopes, some of the best lift-served off-piste in the Alps, not to mention renowned late night après-ski - not what you might call a summer destination. However, you’d be mistaken, as once the thaw starts and the ski season comes to an end, Verbier comes alive once more. Underneath all the powder is the ultimate summer playground with thousands of kilometres of hiking and biking trails, lush green pastures, glittering lakes and so much more.
With an incredible bike park and 800km of trails to explore it comes as no surprise that mountain biking addicts and amateurs alike are drawn to Verbier in summer. Hiking is also a popular pastime with more than 500 km of marked trails, themed paths and treks on offer. Golfers can take their pick from three courses and adrenaline junkies can test their nerve and balance on the various via ferrata routes across gorges and rock faces.
There is no denying that the Swiss Alps are glorious in summer and that Verbier is one of the finest destinations to visit. We have a fantastic range of luxury chalets in Verbier available to rent during the summer months. Whether you are looking for a small self-catered apartment or a fully-serviced luxury chalet we can assist.
Many of the properties have outdoor hot tubs and incredible spa facilities so you can truly relax and enjoy the serenity of the mountains in the sunshine. For example, Chalet Bella Coola has an entire level dedicated to wellness with an indoor pool, hammam and access to its spacious garden. For large groups No. 14 is ideal whilst families will love the quaint and traditional Chalet Le Ti. Couples looking for the luxury chalet experience without the cost should consider The Lodge, Richard Branson’s chalet where it is possible to book on an individual room basis.
Many visitors use their luxury chalet in Verbier as a base from which to explore some of the highlights of the region, from the stunning vineyards down the valley to the Mauvoisin dam and monastery at Grand St. Bernard. Verbier is also a great base for families with children attending one of the Swiss summer schools such as Altitude and Les Elfes.
During the summer season, the resort hosts a variety of exciting events, including the Verbier Festival which showcases some of the world’s top classical musicians, the prestigious Jumping International de Verbier and Verbier E-Bike Festival. These attract many visitors so if you are planning on attending one of these events we recommend booking your summer accommodation with us in good time. We have an experienced team who can answer all your questions and assist in finding the right property for you.
