Verbier Lodging and Accommodations
Written by Greg and Heather Burke
Verbier is a winter playground for extreme skiing, four and five-star lodging, top dining, and tireless nightlife. This chic French-speaking Swiss ski town offers high-end, high-elevation terrain along with designer boutiques, gourmet dining and lively après ski in the village. For ideal lodging in Verbier, The Chalet de Flore is well-located in the heart of the village just steps to the Médran ski gondolas and a short walk to Verbier's best restaurants and shops. You need a convenient luxe hotel after skiing Verbier's steep and vast terrain.
The 4 star Le Chalet de Flore is a member of Verbier Luxury Hotels along with sister hotel 5 star Chalet D'Adrian. Chalet Flore has been completely redecorated in beautiful Swiss mountain chic throughout the commons rooms and Lobby bar - which has a balcony and splendid views of the mountains. Of the 20 well-appointed guestrooms and suites, most have balconies, some even have lofts for children. Our spacious Edelweiss suite had a spa-like bath with rain shower and a huge deck looking out at the Alps and Mont Blanc. Robes and slippers are provided along with the best amenities. Fluffy down duvets on the bed provide coziness, while modern outlets and a mini-fridge give the perks of home.
Après ski at Le Chalet de Flore, Tea is served and the beautiful bar is open serving aperitif and the Chef's specialty - "Board Gourmet" of Swiss cheese and small plates along with Swiss wines, whiskey, and cognacs. The Hotelier extraordinaire Evelyn is happy to give dining recommendations and provide some history of her beloved ski village of Verbier. Breakfast at Chalet de Flore is fresh and fantastic, croissant and bread delivered that morning are served with meats and cheeses, fruit and muesli in the pretty dining room along with superb French coffee, très fort - like the mountains you will ski just steps away - Mont Fort and Mont Gele.
After skiing, you walk the short distance to the Chalet, store your skis and boots in heated lockers and take the Hotel elevator back to the comforts of your room. The Chalet de Flore is very peaceful and quiet even though the village of Verbier can be a vibrant party town - with big après ski bashes at The Farinet and Fer a Cheval - both just a stumble away from the hotel.
Guests of Chalet de Flore can have spa treatment priority at sister property Chalet D'Adrian. Shuttle services are also available.
Other top hotels in Verbier are No. 14 Chalet and Sir Richard Branson's Lodge Verbier, and Hotel W Verbier - W Hotel's first ski hotel and first Swiss property for the prestigious W Hotel collection.
