VERBIER

VERBIER

Situated in the heart of Verbier, this stunningly renovated apartment offers peace, tranquillity and a traditional chalet feel, amalgamated with modern touches.

Verbier, the Alpine village in Switzerland’s Valais Canton is the gateway to the 4 Vallées ski area. It is perched high above the Val de Bagnes, on a spectacular south-facing plateau. It is renown as a luxury ski resort, for its excellent skiing, for its vibrant social life, its après ski bars and Michelin-starred restaurants, and superb nightclubs. During the summer, it blesses visitors with sunshine bathed green valleys and snow-capped peaked mountains. The scenery is stunning and ideal for biking, hiking and many other outdoor summer activities.


Alessia has worked with the owners on several their projects, notably in London and in France. Her goal was to bring in her unique Italian design style, and elements from previous projects, and combine them with the more accustomed Swiss chalet style. The outcome is a home that offers relaxing comfort, combining tradition with modern design styles.



The apartment comprises of 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms, Living, Dining room and Kitchen, all surrounded by a wraparound, 270 terraces, offering stunning views. The warm chalet feeling has not been compromised, the traditional aged wooden floors and walls have been complimented with some sumptuous and elegant fabric padded walls upholstered with Johnston of Elgin lambswool clot Teviot. Throughout the whole apartment the rustic woodwork has been matched with matt bronze ironmongery from Joseph Giles, providing an uncompromisable elegance.

Along the marble stone covered entrance hall, is the Kitchen, Living and Dining Room. The whole area is blessed with windows and glass patio doors offering both natural light and views and these are beautifully complemented with Roman Blinds manufactured from De Le Cuona Seahorse fabric. The bespoke Kitchen is handcrafted from aged wood, seamlessly complementing the existing wood in the apartment. The Grigio Carnico marble work surfaces provide an elegant statement against the aged wooden joinery. The kitchen has been fitted with appliances from both Gaggenau and SubZero, providing a striking modern statement. The Dining room, integrates well with the kitchen, an aged wooden table is matched with elegant bespoke chairs covered in Jim Thompson grey velvet and from the ceiling, is an antler style chandelier, from Restoration Hardware, providing chalet warmth and ambient lighting.

The Living Room is squared off with a beautiful sumptuous mohair rug from Gallery Zozan Antwerpen, Belgium. The modern, yet very comfortable furniture is a mix of both vintage and new. An original vintage Cassina armchair mod 849, designed by Gianfranco Frattini, reupholstered in Pierred Frey Bridget sits elegantly facing a bespoke modern couch upholstered with De Le Cuona Cobbles linen fabric, adorned with Oyuna cashmere pillows and throw. Two marble top tables from De Padova round up the Living Room and ambient lighting is provided by a wall light from De Padova.

The apartment offers 3 full bathrooms, two en-suite and one guest. Each bathroom offers subtle differences, but all have a common, modern, elegant and luxuries theme. The bathrooms are a warm sumptuous sanctuary during the winter months. The colours and tones bode beautifully with the chalet. The marble and vanity units are from Salvatori, the Master marble in Silk Georgette and the remaining two in Gris du Marais. The tapware from Cea Design showcases the meticulous attention to design detail. The shower areas are enclosed using bespoke designs from Vismara Vetro.

The three bedrooms still retain the chalet theme, aged wood floors and joinery are paired with modern but warm textures and finishes. The main bedrooms offer bespoke beds with storage, finished off with elegant headboards covered in De La Cuona velvet. The curtains from Pierre Frey Apolline Crème are both contemporary and sophisticated. The lighting is ambient and elegant from CTO, finished off in bronze. The guest bedroom shares its use as an office. It offers a bespoke wardrobe with an integrated pull-down bed. The joinery is upholstered with Johnston of Elgin lambswool cloth Teviot, which matches the walls. Under the window rests a bespoke desk, made form aged wood and the window is dressed in Roman Blinds using De Le Cuona Seahorse fabric.


Alessia’s inspiration was to integrate the charm and warmth of a Swiss chalet with that of Italian style and luxury. Walking into the apartment, one can feel that marriage between the quaint and the modern, the synergies work so well together, creating a warmth ambiance.
