Sir Richard Branson's mountain retreat in Verbier, perched high in the Swiss Alps, is the perfect year-round escape.
Sir Richard Branson's Alpine retreat, The Lodge, is a nine-bedroom year-round mountain hideaway, with an additional bunk room that sleeps up to six children. The mountain’s main lift is very close, and the town of Verbier is only a ten-minute walk away. Back at The Lodge, there's no shortage of things to do — bask in the indoor swimming pool, indoor and outdoor Jacuzzis, steam room and spa, or enjoy the party room with its plasma-screen television and games console. Summer outdoor activities include mountain biking and hiking. Come winter, enjoy some of the most acclaimed skiing in the world — service to and from lifts is available.
• During the summer, around 50% of all herbs and edible flowers used at The Lodge are sourced directly from the garden. The team also regularly go foraging in the local mountains for wild berries, herbs and elderflower
• The delicious elderflower cordial used in soft drinks and cocktails is made at The Lodge from local trees
• As well as being committed to the ‘nose to tail’ principle and using all parts of the animal in cooking, the chefs have started experimenting with this concept in every dish they create. The Lodge’s clementine tart uses every part of the fruit, from the rind to the leaves, to reduce waste
• The Lodge has implemented the 'give me tap' water bottle scheme which seeks to encourage the use of reusable bottles. The money from any bottles that are sold goes to clean water schemes in Africa
• The Lodge invites local children to come to the chalet twice a year for a day in the kitchen to learn about healthy eating and local produce in the community
