(2010) Curiosity on what lies behind closed shutters is a trait of human nature. Bramble Ski invites Verbier Life to take a look inside some of Verbier’s most beautiful chalets.
Since the company began in 2005, Bramble Ski has been busy building a reputation as Verbier’s best-kept secrets. From the beautiful wood and furs used in Nyumba to the exquisite art lined walls of The Dairy, their collection of chalets and apartments are some of the best Verbier has to offer. Natasha Robertson of Bramble Ski explains, “We have always known that Verbier has some of the most beautiful homes in the Alps and now we are able to allow our guests access to these stunning chalets.”
As Verbier has become a destination resort for the worlds wealthiest individuals Bramble Ski has an increasingly international list of owners. This is reflected in the diversity of the chalet interiors across the portfolio. From the beautiful textiles used in the middle-eastern influenced Valentine apartments to the Italian green marble used to line the pool and spa at Nyumba.
How do they get their hands on these stunning properties? “We are fortunate that our business has seen substantial growth, we now have over 20 properties in Verbier. In the last 5 years we have learnt that we must both have flexibility in our contracting process with owners and in tailored services we provide our clients. The aim of the team is to work in partnership with our owners to deliver maximum returns, while giving them the peace of mind that their homes will be cared for throughout the season.”
No detail is too small when it comes to the interior design of their Chalets with the use of natural stone and reclaimed wood. “We are often asked to get involved at an early stage with the planning of these properties and work along side the architect and interior designers to come up with beautiful yet workable solutions for our owners.”
Natasha is keen to point out that there is something special about all of the Bramble Ski chalets but takes us through some of her favourite features. “I love the stunning pool in the Victoria and Valentine complex where we have four apartments, there is a fantastic gym and it looks onto the most gorgeous grey slate pool, which is huge and so inviting. The craftsmanship in the carpentry of our flagship chalet, Maria Schnee in St Anton, blew me away. The whole place has the feel of a country manor but with a lightness of touch that you don’t expect in Alpine chalets.”
With their collection of stylish and elegant chalets and apartments we are sure Bramble Ski won’t be a secret for much longer.
