From the pastoral perch atop Switzerland’s Verbier, it is as if you have stepped into the land of Heidi herself. Here, a short walk from the village center, a hamlet of two chalets adorned with flower-bedecked balconies or winter ski trails greets you with a heartwarming Swiss hospitality infused with French joie de vivre. Styled to be enjoyed both individually or as one gigantic chalet, the baronial faubourg boasts charming traditional settings and intimate snuggeries for savoring life in the Alps. From the mazot-style entrance and top-floor master suite to the antique accoutrements, cozy lift, beautiful alpine gardens, and seven-car garage, the beloved hideaway bestows a peaceable kingdom that has come to be cherished as one of Europe’s deluxe private realms. Perhaps the setting that visitors and family alike find most endearing of all is one of the fireside living rooms. Adorned with an old wooden beamed ceiling, it immediately captures your heart. Through window panes, you feast on the magnificent Alps—accompanied by a serenade of cowbells echoing in the distance.
