A stunning new build chalet in a beautiful and peaceful part of Verbier with majestic views over the mountains and entire resort.
Chalet Cocoon is a modern and traditional chalet in Patier/Chevillard. As designers of several projects in Verbier, the architects have created a luxurious chalet in an outstanding setting high above the resort on the edge of the forest.
The surrounding nature is reflected in the quality of the materials used: reclaimed wood, natural stone and slate. Crafted by local artisans, the chalet benefits from their expertise, passion and experience, which gives the property a perfect balance between tradition and modernism. Attention has also been paid to the internal space and circulation of the building as well as its relationship with the surrounding nature. The views over the mountains and the entire resort are simply majestic.
The chalet’s living and dining rooms are located on the middle floor, acting as a filter between the master suite located in the attic and the other bedrooms level on the ground floor. Below the magnificent timber beams there is a lounge with an impressive black granite fireplace with excellent spatial planning.
The chalet can be configured with three or four bedrooms with a large open plan living space with kitchen, sitting and dining areas.
Construction has started but chalet specifications can still be chosen by its future owner. There is the possibility to have a large spa area with indoor pool, hot tub. The choice of level of finish and materials is also optional and will be reflected in the price.

Verbier. A Home in the Valais.
The beautiful mountain resort of Verbier in the Four Valleys is the in-place for homeowners who want to ski hard and party harder. Verbier mixes up picture-pretty wooden chalets and contemporary penthouses, refined clubs and joyfully edgy new hotels: check out how magnificently The W Hotel has transformed the Medran lift station.
Verbier is a true year-round resort with hiking trails, mountain bike paths and a packed sporting and cultural calendar for the summer. In winter however it is above the village on Verbier’s highly prized steep slopes that the real daytime action happens.
This is Switzerland’s largest ski area, a proper, hard-wired Alpine resort where a south-facing bowl provides a satisfying tangle of blue and red pistes, several infamous black runs and unforgettable off-piste skiing. Descend the legendary Bec des Rosses, free ride through the Vallon d’Arby or ski as a family on the forgiving slopes through the trees to La Tzoumaz.
As night falls the focus moves into the village centre. Après-ski evenings often start at Hotel Farinet, Mont Fort Pub or Le Rouge and end at the Casbah or legendary Farm Club where royalty and celebrities party with seasonaires.
How To Buy in Switzerland:
The purchase process in Switzerland is straightforward and well structured. However Switzerland imposes restrictions on who can purchase property with the precise rules differing between regions and sometimes between neighbouring resorts.
In general non-Swiss nationals who want to buy property in Switzerland must obtain a permit prior to any purchase. The two laws that concern the purchase of second homes are the Lex Koller, introduced in the 1980s as a way of limiting the number of second-homes allowed to be purchased by non-residents and the Lex Weber, introduced in 2012, limiting the supply of new second homes.
Under the Lex Koller foreign buyers are only permitted to own one property in Switzerland and they cannot resell their home within five years of purchase.
There are some of Switzerland’s 26 cantons (administrative areas) where only Swiss nationals or people holding a Permit B (long-term work permit) or a Permit C (a permanent residence permit) can buy. Many of the elite ski resorts and also the cities of Geneva and Zurich have severe restrictions. However special government legislation means that all new-build homes in Andermatt, most unusually, are free of any restrictions on non-Swiss owners.
To fully discuss purchasing options it is essential to consult a specialist.
