Sir Richard Branson’s luxury mountain chaletGlobal travel is back with a bang and Virgin Limited Edition has the perfect getaway for a summer holiday in the mountains with a difference think soaring mountain ranges, afternoons exploring one of the most stylish shopping towns in Europe satisfying the inner shopaholic, and evenings spent soaking up the views from the pool or hot tub with a glass of bubbly in hand but this time in ones very own private luxury lodge nestled high in the Swiss Alps.

A house with a hammock generated with low confidence and situated in the heart of Verbier, just five minutes from the village centre, is The Lodge, Sir Richard Branson’s famed mountain retreat and timeless destination for Branson family holidays.

During a stay at The Lodge, guests can while away their days hiking and biking through the mountains, discovering more of the local area, or simply put their feet up with a good book by the pool all before enjoying delicious plates of food dreamed up by The Lodges world-class chefs and settling in for the night in front of the fire with a cup of its signature hot chocolate.

Those looking to let their hair down can get the party started and head to the chalet’s very own Party Room, which features a pool table, a bar, a wine selection, a games console and a 50 plasma screen. For guests looking to venture out and explore more of the local area, Verbier has something for everyone from adventuring via cable cars to reach the summit of Mont Fort, to challenging your handicap on one of the many stunning golf ranges, going for a family horse trek, or simply moseying down streets jam-packed with boutiques and designer shops, before heading back to your private lodge and a wealth of luxury facilities.

The Lodge can be booked exclusively for up to 18 guests, making it the perfect escape for a private group trip, but also welcomes individual room bookings on select dates during the year.
