Recently completed in 2009, Chalet Nyumba, is a beautifully contemporary luxury chalet designed with exquisite taste and attention to detail. This stunning chalet nestles in an ultra exclusive enclave in the heights of Verbier, near to the Sonalon restaurant. The tranquil location and commanding position affords this property some of the most spectacular views in Verbier, if not the Alps.
Perfectly framed mountains vistas in the double height floor to ceiling windows of the living room or the plate glass walls of the luxury spa. Chalet Nyumba is a beautiful property that has been stylishly conceived and is a perfect blend of a traditional chalet charm with a contemporary aesthetic. Worn leather sofas, distressed antique wood finishes and beautiful alpine detailing featuring throughout.
This vast and spacious chalet is set out over 4 floors and can sleep up to 14 people (10 adults and 4 to 6 children). The Chalet is split into two distinct structures, a main chalet and a guest Mazot. Nyumba also boasts an extensive private spa, finished throughout in Italian marble with views over the valley and mountains beyond. Truly stunning, the spa's lavish facilities include an 'L' shaped pool, hammam (steam room), indoor and exterior jacuzzi, sauna and a cold water plunge pool. A massage room is located adjacent to the spa where one of the in-house team of masseurs can work their magic.
The main chalet has an expansive open plan living and dining area with proud double height windows, the view from which will take your breath away. The dining table comfortably sits 12 and is open to the kitchen area. Stairs lead to a mezzanine office and up to the stunning master bedroom which features a beautiful en-suite marble bathroom and traditional roaring log fire.
The ground floor houses 3 bedrooms, 2 double bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms plus a charming and cosy children's bunk room sleeping 4 children, making this a perfect retreat for families. There is also a large children's play room on the lower ground floor. The lower ground floor has a further twin bedroom with separate shower room, and houses a fully equipped cinema room, perfect for kids and big kids! This floor gives access to the garage and wine cave with its fine selection of French and Italian wines.
If you choose to stay at Chalet Nyumba you will also be supporting a fantastic cause - a portion of the revenues from the chalet rental are paid to the charity 'Give a Future Foundation' a UK registered charity that is committed to transforming the lives of orphans and vulnerable children, through education in Ethiopia.

“Chalet Nyumba is split into 2 parts, the main chalet and a guest Mazot so perfect for two families. The Mazot is set out as a separate family suite with a small kitchenette and dining area, double bedroom on the first floor and large sleeping area in the eves. The main chalet comes with a children’s playroom and fantastic cinema room ideal for entertaining children while parents enjoy a glass of champagne in the living room. Also has a swimming pool.”
“Perched high above the chic mountain resort of Verbier, Chalet Nyumba offers ravishing mountain vistas and unsurpassed services. Its extraordinary design is undoubtedly Alpine inspired, but filled with details that speak of the sounds and colours of vibrant Africa.”

There is something wonderfully comforting and indulgent about having somebody else take control of the kitchen. When that person is a talented chef with hands-on experience in high-end restaurants, you know you’re in for a mouth-watering treat. We handpick our villa partners for their beautiful properties, stand out service and their dedication to gastronomy. Here’s a taste of what you can expect when staying in one of our catered villas:
When you awake from your dreamy sleep you can rest assured that breakfast has been taken care of and awaits you. Freshly squeezed oranges and healthy fruit juices along with a selection of delicious teas and coffee are just the start. Yoghurts, crispy cereals, fresh fruits and a tempting display of fresh breads & delicate pastries complete the table. Your chef will also prepare a daily cooked hot option for you - how do you like your eggs? If creamy porridge with honey or simply toast hits the spot, just ask, it’s on the menu. With breakfast taken care of all you have to do is decide how to spend the day. A trip to a stunning beach or perhaps time relaxing by your own private pool – decisions, decisions! Life can be tough …….
Whether you’d prefer to have your chef prepare a wonderful spread at lunchtime or alternatively you’d like to dine al-fresco under the stars, the choice is yours. With an emphasis on using specially selected fresh local and seasonal ingredients you will be served a melt-in-the-mouth meal befitting of a Michelin starred restaurant. From sun soaked BBQ’s on the terrace to delicious locally inspired menus, your chef will be in touch with you personally before your arrival to discuss your preferences.
The villa provides house wines, beers, a drinks tray of two bottles of house spirits and mixers. Champagne is served with canapés on 6 nights of your stay.
The chef is happy to cater to specific dietary requirements. Just let us know about any special requests regarding dietary requirements such as gluten free options. Maybe you’re celebrating a birthday? A cake bedecked with candles can be arranged or maybe just favourite dishes, nothing is too much trouble, just ask. Maybe you’d like an earlier high tea for the youngest children? We will do our very best to ensure that your wishes are granted.
