I thought my holiday would be good but I was unprepared for how brilliant I would feel by the end of the week evening standard
"Thank you all so very much for your energy, expertise and inspiration"
A fantastic country for both winter sports and summer adventures. And, if you're looking for the epitomy of stylish luxury, our featured lodge in Verbier and our recommended hotel in Gstaad are the places to go.
With so many daily flights in to Geneva, it's an easy destination for just a couple of days (if that's all you can spare), particularly with our efficient pick up and transfer service. We can't quite decide whether we prefer the Alps in the summer or the winter but, whichever season you choose, you can be sure of a wonderfully healthy holiday - all in the absolute luxury of Sir Richard Branson's Lodge in Verbier or the equally luxurious, newly opened, 56 bedroom Alpina Gstaad hotel.
Obviously the winter months focus on skiing, but you could always try cross country or snow shoeing. It's something different and terrifically good exercise, and allows you to explore the mountains away from the pistes.
In the summer, the Alps has started to become a lakes and mountains playground where you can hike, mountain bike, play golf, go horse riding.... We can design a mixture of activities to keep you and your family, or a gang of adults, very well entertained.

Weather and seasons
The Swiss climate varies greatly between the localities, from glacial conditions on the mountaintops to the often pleasant near Mediterranean climate at Switzerland's southern tip. Summers tend to be warm and humid at times with periodic rainfall. The winters tend to be colder with snow falling across much of the country making it a mecca for skiers worldwide.

The Lodge is Sir Richard Branson’s stunning nine bedroom chalet in Verbier, one of the Alp’s most exclusive resorts and Europe’s hottest ski spots. Situated on a quiet road just 250m from the main ski lifts and backing onto one of the returning pistes, The Lodge is in a perfect location for the slopes. Also great in the summer!view
