Long summer rental

Hello,

We would like to rent a wonderful chalet in Verbier for a period of 4-5 weeks over the summer. We are new to Verbier and need the chalet to be easily accessible to the centre, to the children's camps and near any activities we can enjoy with the children.

We are looking for a property with at least five bedrooms and that would be considered a high 4* or 5* property.

Any and all recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks in advance.

Try Sam at www.verbier.co. I find him reliable. He has a good selection of beautiful properties under management. He and his wife has young children and have run some kids clubs - so they should understand your needs.

Verbier is beautiful in the summer. We have a property there and spent a couple of weeks there last summer with then. It was great, and very active.

The activities are quite spread so don't worry about location too much (Sports centre is far from the lifts for example so what you gain on tennis, you lose on mountain biking....) In reality, everything is very accessible if you have a car. Verbier isn't huge.

Be aware also, that some things (for example, weekday telecabines) only operate in July and August. There's plenty to do in June - but less.

To add some additional advice on activities with children.

There are various kids clubs in Verbier. Some are residential, some are day camps. There is quite a difference. If you are there with your own children (as we have been), I would avoid the residential camps (e.g. Les Elfs). It's just my perspective, but groups seem to be a mix of rich kids from around the globe with the look of "ennui" that can go with that. There are some great day tennis camps, biking instructors, riding camps, golf instructors etc. Personally, I tend toward specialising by activity (one week x, the next y). There are some mixed activity camps, but one of the great things about Verbier is the strength of coaching from specialists who are passionate about their activity. All are very child orientated. The Verbier music festival also has a strong childrens programme.

You can get all the details from the main Verbier website or contacting the tourist office. It's impossible to lay out in a post all the possibilities - a long summer rental with children sounds like a wonderful way to pass the summer.

Dear JT14, Thank you so much for your response. Your advice is incredibly helpful. I have just booked our flights for a six-week stay and emailed Sam about properties. Very excited : ). Thank you !

Hi,

I came upon this post since I was also looking for information about long rentals in Verbier for this summer.

I will look up Verbier.com and connect with Sam. Also, I'm thinking of enrolling my daughter (9 yrs) in the Altitude residential camp for 2 weeks and my son (5) in the same day camp. Do you have any feedback on the Altitude International Camps? I would like to rent a house nearby so I can drive my son to the camp and back.

Thanks in advance for any info you can give me.

I haven't used the Altitude camps for the summer - but they are a perfectly professional school for winter sports. Assuming you are renting in Verbier, I wouldn't worry about proximity to the camp if you intend to drive. Nothing is more than 5 mins away - 10 max by car. And the further from the centre you are, the more likely you are to find a garden etc. Quite good to be near the sports centre in summer to have walking access to the great outdoor pool and tennis etc..

There are plenty of house rental agencies too. You can find them on the main verbier tourist office website - verbier.ch - or send them a mail.
