Switzerland may be the prime location for experiencing the Alps, which extend across an impressive 60% of the country. These picture-perfect mountains have been intriguing tourists and home buyers ever since St. Moritz began attracting them in the mid-1800s. If you’re looking to buy ski property in Switzerland, consider Verbier, one of Switzerland’s celebrity slopes, or the more low key La Tzoumaz.


Part of the Four Valleys ski area, which also includes the ski resorts of La Tzoumaz, Nendaz, Thyon and Veysonnaz, Verbier is treated to an extra-long ski season that stretches for 25 weeks, which is one of the longest ski seasons in Switzerland. The reason why Verbier is so sought after is because it’s managed to retain its traditional architecture and authentic village while investing in modern amenities that have turned it into a contemporary, luxury locale. There are ample opportunities to explore nature, too, with over 300 days of sunshine each year and plenty of forests, lakes and trails nearby.

Aside from skiing, Verbier’s wintertime events include live music, a strong nightlife scene and festivals throughout the season. During the summer, the area is far from a ghost town, with all sorts of gatherings to keep you busy, including motorcycle festivals, horse competitions and the Verbier Festival Academy for musicians.
