Overview - chalet description - Refuge Darbay description

We’ve just snapped up this charming little chalet for the coming season, it’s a curiosity that we just couldn’t resist. This enchanting pint-size chalet is cute, cosy and offers everything you might expect of a quirky, traditional chalet from a bygone era. When you consider that it is a snowball throw from the lift, piste and town centre in the very heart of Verbier and that your group can be as few as four (space for a few more if you want) then we think you will forgive the rustic furniture, open plan living area, basic bathrooms and rudimentary farmhouse charm. You would find in our finest properties and oodles of hot water guaranteed. This is a chalet we would all want to stay in ourselves. Not everyone’s cup of tea to be sure, for 5* pampering you can always stay in W-Hotel opposite, but our cheeky little refuge will undoubtedly be full for the season with canny skiers and families who know a good thing when they see it. Sleeping 4-6 guests, the chalet has a double bedroom with private shower room and WC, and a family suite with double bedroom, twin bedroom and shared bathroom with WC.

Meals - food and drink in Refuge Darbay

Our Executive Chef is passionate about food and hugely sensitive to the appetite of a hungry skier whilst considering a balanced diet. The new and refined 2014 menus are heavy enough to reward mountain exertion yet light and simple enough to leave you grinning not groaning.

All our holidays include;

  • Continental breakfast with a cooked option on 6 mornings
  • Afternoon tea will be left in the chalet for you to help yourself to freshly made cake or biscuits, bread & jams, selection of teas, coffee and hot chocolate
  • Canapés on the first and last evening
  • 3 course evening meal (6 nights) followed by cheese board and coffee
  • A choice of red and white wine is served throughout dinner
We update Refuge Darbay'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...
