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.

This is the town centre, the beating heart of Verbier with the main gondola lift of Medran. Numerous hotels, bars and clubs are close by and ski schools meet here. Property is mainly apartments either in older renovated buildings or in top end new luxury developments.

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.
