Place Centrale - Medran Lift - Central ski accommodation
This is the place to be if you are looking for central accommodation right at the heart of the action and want easy access to ski schools, shopping, and of course the town’s legendary bars, nightclubs and restaurants. When it comes to style of accommodation, this is the area where with the most hotels in Verbier and there is a good choice of three to five star hotels here. For convenience purposes, this is a great area to base yourself.
Les Creux / Savoleyres - Quiet and convenient accommodation
Further up the hillside from the centre of Verbier is a quieter area which is good for those looking for ski to the door accommodation who are not so worried about making the most of the town’s nightlife. Booking ski accommodation in this area means that you are closer to some of the quieter lifts and slopes in the valley so it is a great location for families. Despite the fact that this area is slightly out of town, the main lifts and bars and restaurants are still easily reachable due to Verbier’s free bus service.
Le Chable - More affordable Verbier accommodation
Much of Verbier’s central ski accommodation can be pretty expensive, so if you are looking for a cheaper chalet or hotel then the village of Le Chable is a great choice. Situated at the bottom of the valley, Le Chable is a quiet village but it’s cable car provides direct access to the Medran ski lift meaning that the slopes and nightlife of Verbier are still within easy reach. If you fancy getting stuck into Verbier’s legendary après ski scene, just bear in mind that the last lift down the valley leaves at 18:30 so you’d better start early...
Bruson - Ideal for families and real skiers
Based on the other side of the valley from Verbier, Bruson is considered by locals as a bit of a hidden gem in the 4 Valleys ski area. Skiing here on a powder day is great, when the rest of Verbier may already be tracked out. The village has an un-spoilt and peaceful village and a fantastic choice for families or skiers who are looking for a more authentic Alpine ski holiday.
La Tzoumaz - A quieter and more affordable Verbier option
The small town of La Tzoumaz in the opposite direction from Verbier than Bruson, comes to life in winter and summer. It is linked to Verbier and the rest of the 4 Valleys ski area by the Savolyeres ski lift and has a much quieter après ski scene than the central part of Verbier. Accommodation here includes some great apartments and chalets, most of which are just a stone's throw away from the lifts. There are just a handful of bars and restaurants here, offering mostly Savoyard style food or pizzerias.
