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 property is laid out over four floors and comprises a total of seven bedrooms and six bathrooms.
The 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 spa facilities include an indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, cold plunge pool, massage treatment room and a further hot tub on the terrace outside.
The main living room has a dramatic double height ceiling and is furnished with worn leather sofas, distressed wooden furniture, with a stylish mix of alpine detailing and African artwork and carvings.
There is a cinema room with projector screen, extensive DVD library and Sky TV. And if all that isn’t enough to keep the children entertained, there is also a large playroom, with countless toys and games.
Chalet Nyumba also comes with two internal parking spaces, an impressive wine cellar, an office and wifi internet access.
A proportion of the holiday price goes to the UK-registered “Give a Future Foundation”, which supports a variety of education projects for orphans and vulnerable children in Ethiopia.
