If there was such a thing as the fairytale mountain hideaway, Chalet Nyumba would be it. Meaning “home” in Swahili, Nyumba is perched high above the village, with incredible views. 

Nestled in a private corner of the exclusive Sonalon area in the heights of Verbier, Chalet Nyumba was completed in 2009. This beautiful 500 sqm chalet boasts a magnificent spa, finished in Italian marble. Sliding glass doors open up to the commanding views across the valley and the mountains beyond. 

The main living room has a dramatic double height ceiling and is furnished with worn leather sofas and distressed wooden furniture.  There is a stylish mix of alpine detailing, African artwork and carvings.  In the cinema room there's a projector screen and extensive DVD library.  And if all that isn’t enough to keep the children entertained, there is also a large playroom, with countless toys and games.

A proportion of the holiday price goes to the UK-registered “Give a Future Foundation”, which supports a variety of education projects for orphans and vulnerable children in Ethiopia.
