A Warm Welcome Home! Experience Verbier in the heart of an original rustic refuge

VIP SKI likes to think outside the box. Its holidays are always guaranteed to be original and so it is proud to announce that its latest offering is one of the most quirky to date – an intriguing blend of location location and old-world charm, nestled high in the snow-capped peaks of exclusive Swiss jewel Verbier.

Refuge Darbay

Refuge Darbay is a charming, completely unique chalet, and although not like most of the other chalets in the renowned VIP SKI portfolio, VIP SKI simply could not resist its quaint allure . . .

This enchanting chalet is cute and cosy and Refuge Darbay offers everything that you’d dream of experiencing from a traditional chalet that harks from a bygone era.

A quaint bolthole in the heart of picturesque Verbier, Refuge Darbay is just a snowball’s throw from the lift, piste and town centre.

Comprising  a double bedroom with private shower and bathroom, and a family suite with a double bedroom, twin bedroom and shared bathroom, Refuge Darbay with its rustic furniture and open plan living area has bags of charm.

The chalet comfortably sleeps four to six guests, and the decor is the epitome of rustic, farmhouse chic – in other words, perfect for those who prefer traditional, cosy comfort over grandiose style. So, whether it’s a family, a couple, or just someone who knows a great thing when you see it, Refuge Darbay is the perfect setting for a relaxing ski break.

Rest assured at Refuge Darbay there is absolutely no compromise on the luxury-as-standard VIP SKI chalet service that guests can expect in even the very finest properties.

It may be rustic, but the service provided is always refined. Among the facilities available are cable TV, WiFi, a DVD player, a music system with iPod connectivity, hairdryers in each bedroom, a ski locker at the Medran lift station – which is only 100m away – and views of the resort village from the balcony and terrace.

VIP SKI’s superlative chalet service also provides guests with VIP chalet catering, welcome champagne and canapés, wake-up drinks, daily cleaning, complimentary toiletries, access to the resort film and board games library, use of the chalet iPad, ski hosting – and, of course, plenty of hot water! What more could one desire?

VIP SKI pondered over Refuge Darbay for a while simply because it is so atypical of its usual chalet properties. But its charm, its simple beauty and its undeniable je ne sais quoi intrigued so much, it was unanimously agreed this is precisely the type of chalet VIP SKI would want to stay in themselves.

It encapsulates the essence of every great holiday, and VIP SKI is certain that one look will see Refuge Darbay enchant you as much as it has us.
