Verbier is a lively and exciting ski resort that offers a wealth of activities for all ages. One of the world's most popular ski destinations, Verbier is situated less than 2 hours from Geneva. The resort has become synonymous with high altitude on and off piste skiing, its party atmosphere and year round sporting and cultural activities. It continues to attract an ever increasing international clientele. From its sunny plateau at 1500m, Verbier offers breath-taking views of the Combin Massif and access to the towering heights of Mont Fort. The centre of the resort pulsates with life and there are a wealth of shops, hotels, restaurants, bars and nightclubs to frequent. In winter, Verbier forms the nucleus of the Four Valleys ? the largest ski area in Switzerland.
In addition to the 410km of groomed pistes, is some of the finest and challenging off-piste in the world. In addition to superb winter sports, Verbier also offers extensive summer activities including mountaineering, parapenting, hiking, golf and mountain biking. Now in its 20th year, Verbier also plays host to the established Verbier Festival in July and August - a 3 week classical music extravaganza. The dual seasonality of the resort ensures a year round vibrancy, not found in many other resorts.
Croix de coeur is a charming four bedroom apartment ideally tucked away behind the centre of town, making it the ideal base from which to discover Verbier. The main Medran lift station is a 15 minute walk from the apartment, however the closest bus stop is a flat 150m away on Place Centrale.
The apartment is spread over two floors, with on the lower level, an open plan kitchen, dining table and cosy lounge area opening up onto a vast south facing balcony with splendid views across the Combin Range. The extensive windows along the balcony allow the sunlight to flood the apartment throughout the day. Marble floors line the living space, with underfloor heating to comfort sore skiing toes.
There are also two bedrooms on this level, one double and one twin room with an extra elevated single bed. The two bedrooms share a spacious bathroom.
The upstairs level has two further double bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom and the other with an en-suite shower room. This higher level also provides access to a second generous south facing balcony with stunning views.
