Minutes from the slopes and commanding uninterrupted views towards the Mont Blanc Massif, Verbier: Chalet 2 is a picture-perfect setting that promises the ideal getaway. A large open meadow sits in front of the home, offering a playground for sledging and hours of snow-filled fun, while the chalet has an outdoor hot tub, a sun deck, and al fresco dining space.
