About Lorelle Garland
I live in London and bought this charming apartment because my son and I love to ski and we enjoy mountain biking in the summer. I am always at the end of the phone or ready to respond to email if there are any questions.
Lorelle Garland purchased this Apartment in 2003
Why Lorelle Garland chose Verbier
Ours is on the ground floor of a charming chalet which is quite different from most of the rental properties in this price range which are in an apartment block with little character. It was love at first sight for me as it is part of a quintessential Swiss chalet. It is light and bright, with 3 windows in the main sitting room, which include pretty French doors leading onto a sunny south-west facing terrace and garden. In the summer of 2018 it was renovated: the open plan kitchen has been completely redesigned and all the appliances are brand new. There is a new wooden floor throughout and it has been tastefully redecorated.
What makes this Apartment unique
The unique selling point of our apartment is that it is very close to Verbier (a 7 minute walk or 2 minute bus ride) yet it feels very rural. The chalet is set back off the road so there are few traffic sounds, yet it is only a 2 minute walk to the bus stop.

Very nice accommodation, close to the bus stop. The downstairs bedroom is best for kids or perhaps two adults. Owner was great to deal with. Very accommodating and quick to respond.
David was a considerate, respectful and charming guest. I would welcome him
back any time.

This is an awesome property in Verbier
We arrived pre-ski season for hiking and relaxing. The chalet has incredible views of the Swiss Alps and is close to central Verbier and many hiking trails. We hiked out to St "Christophe Chappel" which is a nice easy hike into the mountains. The chalet sleeps at least 6 comfortably and is well equipped with everything you need to relax and enjoy. TV, DVD player with movies, a wood fireplace with logs already cut and ready to burn. Verbier and the lifts are a short walk into town. In Verbier you will find many wonderful places to eat and shop. We went for the preseason hiking and just totally disconnected from work and the world, awesome spot.
Appartement plein de charme dans un quartier calme
Super séjour dans cette appartement très bien agencé et plein de charme
Très belle vue et calme assuré
On s'y sent bien, il est très fonctionnel et décoré avec goût
C'est plaisant d'avoir une cheminée pour les soirées et une terrasse pour profiter du soleil
A recommander sans hésiter
Ideal pour 4/5, a éviter avec des jeunes enfants
Good place with a great view
We had a wonderful winter vacation in Verbier. The house is warm and cosy, the view from the terrace amazing and the kitchen has everything you need. The location is good with a ski bus stop nearby from which it's only four stops to Medran (central ski lift).
All that being said, the house needs a little love. The retro furniture looks nice but some drawers would almost fall apart when opening them, electric water kettle and toaster in the cupboard are resourceful but probably not very safe and turning on both at the same time will blow the fuse, charging more than one phone in a room is not possible - you have to plug smth. out etc. But the great view and camine would reimburse us for those small inconveniences.
I'm glad Alex enjoyed his stay in our place and we're really grateful for his comments. So much so that we have now COMPLETELY RENOVATED the apartment. The living room is now open plan with a fully modernised kitchen, breakfast bar with masses of storage and wooden floor. Please see new photos.(The antique sideboard has gone.)
The whole property has been re-wired and there is even a USB point for charging mobiles phones or laptops on the breakfast bar.
We take great pride that our apartment is within a traditional Swiss chalet, yet has fully functioning modern, safe appliances, including super fast broadband and TV with all British channels, including Sky & CNN, and recording facility.
Verbier is situated at 1500m and the highest pistes are over 3000m on the Mont Fort glacier. The chalet is in a quiet location at the beginning of the Rue de Patier, close to the Montpelier Hotel and the Sports Centre. Verbier centre is walkable, and there are frequent buses to ski lifts and resort centre. The bus stop is very close to the chalet. The bus ride to the lifts takes 5 minutes.
Verbier has skiing to suit all abilities with a ski school, many well groomed pistes, and superb off-piste runs and climbs for the energetic. It has a lively apres ski and night life a walkable distance away.
Summer too! Verbier now offers much more than snow and skiing, appealing to lovers of classical music, mountain-bikers, golfers, ice skaters, walkers, tennis players, para-gliders and those who just like to relax on the chalet terrace and breathe pure mountain air. Verbier also provides a base from which many exciting excursions can be taken, such as Italy which is only an hour's drive.
