Main Image


Chalet Gelinotte is one of those typical Verbier old-house chalets which one associates with this leading Swiss resort and which so many of you love and return to year after year.  A little on the old-fashioned side, this lovely traditional, freestanding chalet provides the perfect solution for friends and families to join together and enjoy a stress-free, laid back and comfortable holiday.

Nestled harmoniously in the predominantly chalet populated area of Les Esserts, its charm lies in its lovely living room with open log fire and wood-panelled rooms. The views towards Bruson, the Petit Combin and across the valley are fabulous and can be taken in under the evening sun with a large glass of wine on the super balcony after a hard day on the slopes. 

You will be warmly welcomed to The Gelinotte by one chalet host who lives out but closeby.

​Did You Know:  The English translation of Gelinotte is "Grouse" probably most well-known for Famous Grouse Whiskey... something that may be called for after completing Verbier's legentary Tortin !


Chalet Gelinotte is situated close to our equally lovely Chalet Oliquin and is a very easy 6/7 minutes walk to the uncrowded Savoleyres lift.  Alternatively you can take advantage of the super-efficient free bus service in Verbier which stops nearby and which will take you either down to Medran in town or up to Carrefour which provides a completely stress-free start to your day, linking into the system part-way up the mountain. Place Centrale is about 15 minutes (downhill) walk however there are a few great and hugely popular bars and restaurants closeby.

Short Description

Verbier makes up part of the "4 Valleys" with 400km of well-groomed pistes and is seen by many as one of the finest ski resorts in Europe. With quite an upmarket feel to it, it attracts some of the world's rich and famous. However, there are plenty of chalets to cater for all bank accounts - some are now looking rather tired, others are fit for Royalty! Not so suitable for beginners, this resort is more geared for the better skier with a healthy appetite for apres ski and off piste!
