About the home
It is a large apartment of approx 80 m2, with a balcony facing south west. There are two double bedrooms. The master bedroom is to the rear looking up to the Verbier slopes, with twin beds and an optional foldaway single bed. The smaller bedroom is on the west side with a standard size double bed. There are also two sofas in the living area which fold down to make a further double and medium sized bed.
There are two bathrooms, one with bath /WC, and the other a walk in shower plus WC. There is also a small washer/dryer in the bathroom for that emergency mid holiday wash.
The kitchen is small but well equipped with a full glass door onto the balcony. There is a good sized oven, fridge, and dishwasher, plus plenty of pots /pans etc. to facilitate all your self catering requirements.
The centre piece is the large lounge with panoramic views and seating for 6 people. It also includes a dining area which comfortably seats 6 around the extended table. There is a CD player plus a TV with DVD and video players, also a satellite dish which provides all the usual UK freeview channels. There is a large selection of English videos/dvds to enjoy
Wifi is also available in the apartment and charged at Srs 3.0 /hr.
An open fireplace provides the finishing touch, but be aware that the central heating is very efficient and the fire is rarely used. However on occasions it does obviously add to the atmosphere of a mountain chalet.

Further details indoors:
Use of a car within the resort is not recommended or necessary in the ski season in view of the excellent bus system. You are also in easy walking distance of all the shops and the main lift at the Medran , and just two stops on the bus to the Savoleyres lift area. The nursery slopes at Les Essert are also easily accessible by catching the Hameau or Carrefour green buses, which whisk you there in less than 5 mins.
To return to the apartment just catch any bus and you will always be delivered right back to the door, as all buses go via the Medran and our stop is the next one on the circular route. However most of the season you can ski right back to the apartment via the Le Rouge and Le Bleu pistes which are located directly behind the chalet. These exit onto Rue de Ransou just to the west of the chalet right ,next to the restaurant/bar Le Rouge. Alternatively careful navigation through the Chalets behind will bring you right to the bottom of the rear stairs!!
Further details outdoors:
There is no long term parking at the chalet in season , but you can unload on the parking area in front, provided you leave access to the garages below. There is ample parking by the Verbier sports centre in the Perin Car Park. This is free for the first 24hrs and then Sfr 5 / day afterwards. Payment is by card on exit. There is a free courtesy bus from here to the medran lift. You can also walk and it takes about 15 mins from the apartment.
There are many shops in Verbier which offer ski rental at very similar prices. Good discounts are available to Clair Abri visitors at Xtreme Sports in the place central and you can book online before you go at www.xtremesports-verbier.net.
Just quote Clair Abri, when you book, to get your 20% discount.
Please do not bring boots/boards/skis into the apartment. They can be left outside the front door, in the hall way or on the balcony outside.
There are a many good supermarkets with everything you require at similar prices to the UK. Migros and the Co op offer the best selection. Pam discount store next to Migros is good for the basics plus wine and beer plus Denner supermarket nearby. Most smaller shops are more expensive but the one at the corner of Rue Ransou to the west is very handy for most things and only a short walk away. The bakery near the Medran /Hotel Rosalp has to be recommended for fresh bread and croissants plus fantastic cakes !!
You can easily spend a lot of money eating out in Verbier restaurants, particularly in the evening. Eat at midday and take the set menu and you can get excellent meals for less than 20 Sfr./head. However for value in the evening you cannot beat “Relais du Neige” by the Medran, “Fer a Cheval” further down the hill[, or Carrefour at the top of Le Rouge. Also Chez Martin near the centre is very good. It is always best to book a table in advance, as all these are very popular.
All clean linen is kept in the cupboard by the window in the master bedroom. All clean towels are kept in the top of the right hand wardrobe in the same bedroom. Whilst all duvets and pillows will be on the beds , others will be located under the seats in the dining area for use on the sofa beds etc.
On departure all the beds should be stripped and dirty linen/towels placed in the bath in the main bathroom . Whilst the apartment is always cleaned after guests leave it is expected that it is left in a clean and tidy state. All rubbish in black bags should be taken to the Poubelle just down the road to the left, and all glass and bottles etc taken to the bottle banks at the coach park by the small local supermarket.
Weekly rates are all inclusive of cleaning/laundry/heating etc. and are based upon four people sharing.
The telephone and breakages will be charged at cost and deducted from the initial deposit of 20% required on booking.
Payment in full is required four weeks before the rental date.

The Swiss Alps / Valais/Swiss Alps region
Up the mountain in Verbier and before you spreads a broad, sun drenched bowl facing south west. In the distance you can see the eternal snows glinting on the slopes of the Combins and Mont Blanc massifs. You are located at 1500 metres in the Val de Bagnes. Verbier and a further 23 quaint villages offer a wide range of attractions all year round, amidst a wonderful alpine environment. The upper part of the valley is Switzerlands second largest protected nature reserve with an abundance of flora and fauna, interlaced with herds of the native breed of black cattle, often adourned with their cow bells.
Lake Geneva, and Chateau Chillon are within an hours drive and also the spa pools at Saillon in the Sion valley are a must to be visited , and why not also take in a local vineyard or cheese dairy to really experience the character of the area. Check out www.verbier.ch for full details of the area.
The Verbier area
Located at 1500 metres, draws its special charm from the chalet style buildings that form this large alpine village nestled harmoniously in its natural surroundings.
A great place to visit in summer or winter.
The highlight of the summer is the Verbier Music festival at the end of July / early August, with 17 days of music. International artists and orchestras converge on Verbier for concerts,recitals, street performances and jam sessions. Summer activities also abound, whether it is hiking, climbing, walking, horse riding or just enjoying the resort facilities of swimming pools, tennis and of course golf.

In winter Verbier is a magnet for winter sports enthusiasts from all over the world. At the gateway to the Four Valleys area of 410 kms of piste and 89 state of the art lifts it is in a league of its own. It is all also covered by just one lift pass!! It's reputation is based upon its wide range ski runs and challenging off piste areas plus its reknown night life for those inclined to see in the early hours before another day of outdoor activity.
How to get there

Verbier is easily accessible by car and rail. Approx 2hrs by road from Geneva airport, and 3hrs by train/shuttle bus into the centre of the resort. Budget airlines to Geneva offer great value. Transport by train is the easiest during the winter season, just jump on the train in the airport, with direct trains to Martigny every hour. Take the Grand St.Bernard train to LeChable , then bus or Gondola into the resort. All train tickets can be booked online at www. sbb.ch. In the summer you will need a car, as the in resort bus service does not run. However in winter this just makes a car redundant in the resort.

There is really nothing more to say than that this is a perfect retreat, close to everything but not in everything, easy to get to and from on foot or by bus, well equipped with everything one might... more

Beautiful and spacious flat with great veiws from the balcony. The owners called on the day of arrival to check that everything was OK. Nice decor in the leaving room. Having two toilet rooms was very useful. Having a bus stop just outside the flat is very handy. The only thing to bear in mind when going skiing in the mornings is that it is the first stop after the main Medran lift on a one way system, so it is quicker to go to an alternative lift by bus, unless you are prepared to walf down to Medran in all ski gear about 7 minutes.
