You are feeling rather chuffed with yourself. It has only taken a month of pinning down your eldest son, making sure that your youngest’s annual school ski trip doesn’t coincide and ensuring that your non-skier parents and in-laws will be happy. You have the family secured and now it’s time to secure your perfect place to stay.
You need somewhere close to lifts to give your eldest some freedom and to make ski school morning drop-off a breeze. You need somewhere close to shops and a center to keep your and your husband’s parents content. If everyone else is happy, then so are you. Hold on, this is your perfect week of the year as well you know. We think you deserve a balcony for afternoons sipping champagne with your favourite book. You need to sink into a fur-lined chair on a terrace that overlooks the Mont Blanc Massif. We also think you have earned your own private sauna for some quality me-time after skiing.
That sounds like quite a list you apprehensively query. Doubt not, you know that your friends in high places will have just the place with your name on it. Verbier’s Chalet Ivouette. Welcome home.
Ivouette is located just a few minutes’ walk from the main Rue de Médran in Verbier. Not only are you close to all the bars and restaurants but also to the main Médran lift station. I can see your shoulders relaxing already.
Perfect for large family gatherings, there is a combination of twin and double rooms all with en-suite shower or bathrooms. Squabbles over bedroom sharing are a thing of the past. I can see the look of relief washing over your face. For you, we have reserved the beautiful master, peacefully furnished in cream and wood, complete with French windows opening onto the upstairs terrace. I can see you sinking onto the end of your bed. The children have found the snug and you have found peace.
Upstairs the fire is crackling. It’s hard to pick which out of the two inviting seating areas to collapse into. Your eye catches the bar that separates the kitchen and dining area. Stocked with the finest selection of house wines, complimentary beers and soft drinks and two bottles of house spirits, you know where you’re having canapés this evening.
With your phone switched to silent, happy laughter resonating from downstairs and plump snowflakes landing on the balcony, your favourite time of the year has just arrived.

When staying in a catered chalet every night feels like a special occasion, and why shouldn't it, you're on an amazing holiday and it's so good to be alive. You’re dressed and ready for a glass of something chilled with friends and family, ready to regale them with tales of your mountain adventures that may get a little exaggerated for dramatic effect with each rendition.
