Overview - chalet description - Chalet Payana description

Chalet Payana (sleeps 8-9) 1550m. Chalet Payana is an absolute gem which is one of the most popular, longest-standing properties in the programme.  Its position close to the main central square of Verbier makes it great option for those looking for instant village access (including the infamous Farm Club which is only about 150 yards away) and being right in amongst the razzmatazz that this leading Swiss resort has to offer.

It is a wonderful, old-fashioned, freestanding chalet with lovely creaky wooden floorboards and a wood-panelled living/dining room. There are some wonderful old bits of antique furniture contributing to the lovely Alpine feel one looks for in a traditional property such as this.  The bedrooms are all a good size (upper ones below wooden eaves) and there are plenty of bathrooms.  

Verbier runs a brilliant free bus service and this stops closeby to the chalet to take you slightly uphill in the mornings to either the main Medran lift or further on up towards Savoleyres.  The 8-10 minute walk to Medran is perfectly do'able however especially if you choose to take advantage of the ski lockers (small charge) at the foot of Medran.  The walk back down is extremely straight forward and can become all the more enjoyable if you stop at the legentary Farinet apres ski bar where there is plenty of live music and fantastic fun to be had by all.

You will be superbly looked after by one chalet host in The Payana who lives out. 

Did You Know:  In the local Indian language of Kannada, Payana means "Journey" - so why not complete your skiing journey by having a lovely stay away in this quintessentially Alpine old-style Verbier chalet...

  • Meals - food and drink in Chalet Payana

    We offer our properties on a flexible catering basis therefore providing our guests with as much choice as possible when choosing a fully-catered, part-catered or self-catered chalet or apartment. Your preferences will be discussed at the time of booking and a tailor-made itinerary will be costed based on your requirements.

    Our chalet hosts all enjoy cooking and take pride in what they serve and whilst they are not necessarily qualified chefs, they have good experience of dinner party cooking and many of them will have attended one of the well-regarded cookery schools with whom we work closely to ensure the highest calibre of staff possible.

    If choosing the fully catered or part catered option, you will be assured of good home-cooked food prepared and served by our specially selected chalet hosts. We do not offer luxury items or haute cuisine, we serve good wholesome hearty food fit for anyone after a hard day on the slopes. Menus will be varied and may include local dishes as well as the more traditional UK favourites such as roasts, lasagne or casseroles.

    Our menus have been formed over many years taking into account previous guests’ likes and recommendations and whilst we believe this plan to offer excellent variety, there will be the odd occasion when a dish might not be well-received. We would ask you therefore that if you have any specific dietary requirements or a yearning for dishes in particular, you enquire before booking your holiday and provide us with as much notice as possible regarding specific diets such as vegetarian, vegan, celiac or non-dairy etc.

    We update Chalet Payana'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.

    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...
