The Lodge: Countdown to summer

Summer is seriously just around the corner, and with a great selection of tempting summer offers, we hope you're feeling tempted to book a getaway to Switzerland. At The Lodge, the team are in full swing getting the chalet ready for summer. The gardens are currently getting some TLC, with new shrubs and flowers being planted as we speak, which will make the gardens an even more inviting place to relax with a glass of your chosen cocktail.

When people talk about Verbier the most obvious image that springs to mind are snow-covered mountain peaks and skiers zipping down the mountain-side. However, many people are missing out on the still relatively unknown secret that Verbier is also a lovely summer holiday destination. With temperatures typically in the high 20s or early 30s (centigrade), enjoying the sunshine in the Swiss Alps seriously merits a mention on your bucket-list.

A visit to The Lodge can be as active or as restful as you like. The most popular activity for guests during the summer is setting off on a mountain hike. With a variety of hiking trails starting right outside our door, treks can last from 45 minutes to a 7 hour hike up and down the mountain. To really make a day of it, make sure to ask our kitchen staff to prepare a picnic for you. Who wouldn't want to enjoy a glass of champagne whilst taking in this glorious mountain view?

For those looking for a slower pace, we recommend a trip to our in-house spa. Our beauty therapists will be able to ease away all your aches with our selection of treatments. Other popular activities (if they can even be called 'activities'!) include taking a nap in our garden hammock, a dip in either are indoor or outdoor Jacuzzis or indulging in a tasty BBQ selection!
