Chalet Yogi is perched two hundred metres over the picture postcard village of Verbier. It is located on the Sonalon side of Verbier, famed for its highly desirable real estate and sweeping panorama across the valley to the snow capped peaks of Les Combins.
Completed in 2007, the chalet (approx. 330 sqm) is a haven of light and space where 6 bedrooms, each with their own en suite bathroom, are graced by a grand, double-storey, living space with floor-to-ceiling views over the surrounding Massif.
The traditional old wood exterior, complete with hand-carved balconies and slate roof tiles, gives no hint of the sleek modernity that lies within. This chalet oozes elegance and style. Alongside aged timber beams and a roughhewn stone fireplace, you will find sleek handcrafted iron wall lights, glass tables and stylish armchairs, upholstered in bold accents of purple and gold.

Majestic white peaks grace the horizon, plunging precipitously down to the valley beneath. At this altitude, perched above the clouds, there is nothing but stillness and absolute silence.
There are 4 bedrooms on the first floor, along with a steam room and children’s sitting room. Underneath, a large double garage has been cleverly integrated into the property, along with a dedicated boot/ski room, laundry and additional storage area.
Climbing to the third floor, at mezzanine level above the double-storey living room, you will find 2 further bedrooms which include the beautiful master suite, complete with wet room, walk-in wardrobe and generous private balcony.
There is the possibility to access the Savoleyre lift by ski and ski back to the chalet directly providing suitable snow conditions. The ski bus stop is very nearby.

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.
To fully discuss purchasing options it is essential to consult a specialist.
