Verbier is located in the 4 Vallees ski area in Switzerland, a 2 hour drive from Geneva airport. The resort has a reputation of a “ski hard, party hard” destination and it’s a reputation that is well deserved. The village is situated at 1500m and it is very attractive but also sprawling. Where you decide to stay in terms of location is perhaps more important in Verbier than many other resorts. Get it wrong and you are a 30 minute walk from the skiing as well as the town centre. Get it right and you are ski to the door practically in the centre of town. The resort is normally dissected into 3 main areas, the Medran, Place Centrale and Savoleyres. The most sought after areas are the Medran which is the main lift access point. The Place Centrale is the beating heart of the resort; the skiing is a 5 minute walk up to the Medran but the great nightlife and wide selection of shops and bars are on your doorstep. The Savoleyres is an area of the resort perched on the hillside above the village centre. This area takes its name from the small ski area just above it which is the best area in the resort for beginners and intermediates.
