Location - where is Chalet Nyumba

Nestled in a private corner of the exclusive Sonalon area in the heights of Verbier

Overview - chalet description - Chalet Nyumba description

If there was such a thing as the fairytale mountain hideaway, Chalet Nyumba would be it. Meaning “home” in Swahili, Nyumba is perched high above the village, with arguably the best views of any chalet in Verbier.

Nestled in a private corner of the exclusive Sonalon area in the heights of Verbier, Chalet Nyumba was completed in 2009. This beautiful 500 sqm chalet boasts a magnificent spa, finished in Italian marble. Sliding glass doors open up to the commanding views across the valley and the mountains beyond.

The main living room has a dramatic double height ceiling and is furnished with worn leather sofas and distressed wooden furniture. There is a stylish mix of alpine detailing, African artwork and carvings. In the cinema room there's a projector screen and extensive DVD library. And if all that isn’t enough to keep the children entertained, there is also a large playroom, with countless toys and games.

Meals - food and drink in Chalet Nyumba

The best quality ingredients, locally sourced, carefully prepared, perfectly cooked and beautifully presented are the cornerstones of the delicious meals provided. Our chefs are all professionally trained and very experienced, many of whom have worked in Michelin-star restaurants such as Le Gavroche, Chez Bruce, The Square, L'Enclume, Chewton Glen and Launceston Place to name but some. However, their greatest strengths are their passion for food and service.

Breakfast, afternoon tea and cakes, fabulous pre-dinner canapés and a 4-course dinner is generally what we offer. If you would prefer lighter suppers and/or children's teas, this can easily be arranged. Our chefs are always happy to speak to you on the phone before your arrival in Verbier to help them cater for any specific requests or individual dietary requirements that you may have.

We are passionate about our wine, and our excellent selection of ten complimentary house wines have been carefully chosen to offer something for everyone, whether your preference is for a European classic or a bottle from the New World. Our fabulous house champagnes, Perrier Jouët Grand Brut and G.H.Mumm Cordon Rouge are complimentary and available throughout your stay.

If you are looking for something extra special, we have over eighty upgrade wines and champagnes in our cellars, from Château Mouton-Rothschild Bordeaux to Cloudy Bay sauvignon blanc to Dom Pérignon champagne.

We update Chalet Nyumba's details often, but facilities do change. e.g. some extras listed by the supplier as "free" or included might only be for the first time you use them, or for one time per party, then charged for further use. If any specific feature is essential to your holiday, make sure you ask us to confirm the details of it before you book your holiday.

This accommodation only holiday to Chalet Nyumba in Verbier, Switzerland departs Sunday 8th January 2017, for a 7 night stay on a "catered chalet" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

Established in 1937, posh party town Verbier covers a sunny plateau slap bang in the middle of Switzerland’s 4 valleys – which just happens to be one of Europe’s biggest and best ski areas. The easy-on-the-eye architecture’s a pretty mix of wood and slate, but it’s what you’ll find within some of these walls that’ll blow your socks off… Blending in with dozens of classic chalets and ski hotels, this place has some of the most luxurious lodgings on the planet. Some hotels come with designer suites an...
As well as being famous for its off-piste routes, Verbier’s well groomed slopes are well known as some of the most challenging in the Alps. Although it mainly attracts intermediate, advanced and expert level skiers seeking adventurous off-piste and steeps experience, the 37 local pistes covering 100km provide for all abilities. The resort has three areas specifically for beginners, including the gentle slopes at Les Moulins, which has a children’s area and Les Esserts, with its 120m magic carpet. Those with ...
Many say Verbier’s après is the main reason to visit – it’s certainly some of the best in the world and if you want to increase the odds of bumping into Prince Harry or Leonardo di Caprio on the dance floor, there’s no better place to party. From a good old pint in a lively pub (we love Nelson’s and Pub Mont Fort) to swanky cocktails with the socialites at Cordee de Alps, the nightlife is wonderfully varied. An absolute legend is the Farinet - with a huge sliding roof, a commanding position over the mai...

The tranquil location and commanding position of this stunning, contemporary property offers some of the most spectacular views in Verbier. The mountain vistas visible through the double height floor to ceiling windows of the living room or the plate glass walls of the luxury spa bring the outside in and constantly remind you why you love being in the mountains. This vast and spacious chalet is set out over 4 floors and can sleep up to 14 people making it an ideal retreat for families. A truly stunning spa with lavish facilities include an ‘L’ shaped pool, hammam, indoor and exterior jacuzzi, sauna and a cold water plunge pool. Stairs lead to a mezzanine office, which the kids will love and up to the stunning master bedroom which features a beautiful en-suite marble bathroom and traditional roaring log fire. There’s a large children’s play room on the lower ground floor where they can occupy themselves for hours on end and a fully equipped cinema room, perfect for all the family.
