Whoever says a little apartment can’t be luxurious has never been to No5 Apartment 4 before. Driving into the very heart of Verbier you pull up not far short of the Médran ski lift, and step out in front of the brand new, smart complex of apartments. Slick, clean design and yet sympathetic to the Alpine, wood clad environment of Verbier. Your mum always taught you the best things in life come in small packages.
Greeted by your smiling concierge manager you are no doubt eager to explore further and get inside, and you won’t be disappointed. Stepping inside this stylish little apartment provokes both excitement and anticipation for the week ahead, and at the same time the comforting feeling of being at home.
Overall the interior theme is one of modern alpine elegance. Vintage wood clads walls and the ceiling in the bright, spacious living area. The open plan space flows beautifully giving a large, modern and sociable space yet with distinct and cosy areas. Sink into the inviting beige armchairs and soak in the views from the picture windows running the length of the room.
In the corner a contemporary cylindrical log burner crackles and glows, bringing a cosy warmth to the room. Perfect evenings are sure to be spent here curled up on the sofa with a good book and a mug of hot chocolate – the Swiss do it best.
The kitchen is well equipped and sociable, opening out onto the dining area and perfectly suite to a family or friends looking to cook together in the evenings. Pool up a bar stool next to the work bench, pour a glass of delicious local Swiss red, and chat while the chef du jour cooks up a storm.
Of course the best thing about this bijou ski pad is the location, location, location. When you’re bored of cooking in – or even before you’ve bothered at all - you are in prime real estate for popping out to one of the many fabulous restaurants in Verbier. Followed by cocktails at Le Farinet, naturally, and don’t forget to pack your dancing shoes for the Farm Club – all just a snow ball’s throw from your home for the week.
Hopefully the bars and boutiques of Verbier are not all that is calling your name; the call of the snow-covered mountains should also reach you clear as a bell. Just a 2-minute walk away as you depart your secure ski room is the Médran lift, whisking you up above 2000 metres with the 410km + pistes of the world class 4 Valleys ski domain at your ski tips.
For the aching ski legs that will surely ensue make an après ski visit to the wellness area downstairs, where you find both sauna and hamam to sooth and improve ready for first lift again tomorrow! This glorious area rounds off a top day on the slopes in style, lit vibrantly in hues of bright blue and green and leaving you refreshed and re-energised after a quick dash under the rain shower that is. What’s next – out to see a live band in town, or curl up with a film and a bowl of popcorn?
Whether you ski harder, or lunch longer, Verbier is a special and beautiful Alpine setting and her appeal is broad and inclusive. Every winter activity and leisure pursuit is on your doorstep from apartment No. 5 and your attentive concierge manager is there to guide you through the choices. Best restaurants, best patisserie; best holiday.
