With the Winter having drawn to a close and the final day of the ski lifts last weekend, Verbier is yet again getting ready for the summer season.

Although not as frequented by holidaymakers in the summer as other nearby resorts, such as Chamonix which is even more popular in the summer than the winter, it is nevertheless this quiet and relaxing atmosphere which Verbier offers that makes it a perfect Alpine getaway.
