A gem of a resort that attracts everyone from serious hikers to Hollywood stars, there’s plenty going on in Verbier in all seasons.
• A good sport – summer arrives in Verbier with a full calendar of sporting events, whether that means watching leaping horses or gravity-defying motorbikes. If you’re more of a participant than a spectator, why not try something different? Canyoning is a refreshing way to slide down the mountainside – by following streams and waterfalls, rather than ski runs.
• Shining stars – with past performers including David Bowie and Ella Fitzgerald, Montreux Jazz Festival is a big hitter. Just one hour away from Montreux, Verbier is perfect for doing the festival in style.
• Where to stay – Cordée des Alpes, a luxury ski lodge that celebrates the golden age of Alpine exploration.
