(For reassurance re scams, you will have our UK Bucks home address and landline phone number - I hope we will have talked to you on this - and you will get a front door key posted to you well before departure.)
Chalet Fauvettes contains 11 apartments - ours is on the ground floor with a lovely mountain view to the west through french windows across our covered patio and lawn, and so enjoys warm lunchtime to evening sunshine in the later ski season and summer. The apartment is about 120 ms beyond the main Medran gondola lift, and 600 ms from the town centre, so despite a quiet situation, it is easy walking distance from many shops, restaurants, bars, etc. and has near ski-in ski-out access. In summer, lifts are run free* to give access to high level walks and at 20%* discount for mountain biking trails. There is a lovely 18-hole par-70 gol...

Reviewed 2 September 2016 for a stay in July 2016

I stayed here during the Verbier festival, with a friend.
We both loved the apartment, we felt right at home.
The apartment is comfortable, clean and well equipped.
It had everything we needed (and more!).
The beds and sofa-bed are comfortable, and the pillows and linens of great quality.
We also really liked the location, it's a quiet area, but near Medran, the main gondola lift.
And just a few minutes from town centre.
There is also a covered patio, with a large table and two benches, plus a small table and two chairs.
It is very relaxing to sit there and enjoy the amazing view.
The owners were very helpfull, and always responded quickly to my emails.
We would definitely stay at this apartment again, and we highly recommend it.

Management response:

Thank you very much for this kind review.

About the neighbourhood
For skiers and mountain walkers, our situation so close - 120ms - to the main lifts is an excellent feature, such that sometimes we return for lunch, then go skiing again in the afternoon, and shopping and restaurants are within easy walking distance. When loaded with shopping, the free town buses are handy to come back up to the apartment.
Getting around
With the tourist tax included with your rent, much activity is free, but if you have a car, then touring to Italy (e.g. Aosta - a historic Roman walled town) and France (e.g. Chamonix and Mt Blanc) are easy days out.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Geneva: 160.0 km
Railway: Le Chable: 15.0 km
Ferry: Le Havre/Calais/Dunkirk: 980.0 km
Verbier is one of the closest ski resorts from the channel ports - possible in one day - and consider Dunkirk then via Belgium & Luxembourg to avoid some French autoroutes on which tolls mount up!. If you enter Switzerland driving on an autoroute, you must buy a 'vignette' for CHF 50. By train, after arriving in Le Chable, you can buy your lift pass starting next day, which allows you to use the gondola just across the platform up to Medran, (& to ski), from 3pm that day, arriving about 100ms from our apartment.
