The most wonderful time of the year can be even more magical when spent in the beautiful Verbier region in Switzerland.
Early December sees much vin chaud, hot chocolate and music accompany the big Christmas lights ‘switch on’, a sign of the beginning of the festivities. There’s a giant Christmas tree at Place Centrale and authentic festive markets running throughout December.
Nothing can beat the feeling of waking up on Christmas morning in the snowy Swiss Alps, knowing you can relax and enjoy your days skiing, with the peace of mind that your delicious Christmas dinner and roaring fire is all taken care of, and awaits your return.
