travel journaleuropeswitzerlandverbier The Lodge, Sir Richard Branson’s Chalet in Verbier is the perfect year-round escape The Lodge is Sir Richard Branson’s stunning nine bedroom chalet in Verbier, Switzerland and one of the Alp’s most exclusive resorts. Share

The Lodge sits in the four valleys an area starting in Verbier and stretching all the way into Nendaz, passing through Veysonnaz, Thyon, and La Tzoumaz, to the furthest point in Les Masses and also includes Bruson. All of these resorts can be accessed with a single ski lift pass, offering the avid skier over 400km of pistes, and probably more again off-piste – making it one of the largest skiable areas in the alps.

The chalet can accommodate up to 18 adults in 9 bedrooms and up to 6 children and young adults in a specially designed bunkroom. It offers striking centrepiece fireplaces, private balconies to enjoy a minute of peace and enormous bath-tubs.
