Is No.14 the best large catered luxury chalet in Verbier?

Last month I was lucky enough to spend 2 nights in the stunning and newly refurbished No.14, Verbier. This huge property can sleep 26 guest over 13 bedrooms, or if families stay there are also family bedrooms to accomodate more. This offers one of the largest luxury chalets in Verbier

We arrived in Verbier later in the afternoon for our stay in No.14, tired from our flights and transfer. Entering through the huge heavy cast iron front door, we were greeted by a professional chalet team who ask us to don the exceptionally comfy chalet slippers. As soon as those slippers were on and we saw the fireplace, heard the music playing and the word “cocktail?” we all instantly relaxed.

For a large group, there is so much space, lots of comfy seating which has been cleverly thought out throughout to give quiet spots looking over the valley, more social seating by the fireplace as well as 2 separate dining areas. On both nights the fire-pit was lit and we sat out for post dinner digestif.

No.14 is lucky enough to have one of the top Valais chef’s Linda Soderlund. She talked us through our first evening meal, going through where she had sourced the produce and how her influences from her native Sweden has influenced her menu. The food and wine choices were impeccable and so well matched.

We made the most of a fully day of the sun the next day by exploring the world famous Verbier, 4 Valley Ski Area. As we only had a day we focussed our skiing to Mont Fort where luckily for us the freeride championships was on. This is an amazing spectacle and one of the 2 huge freeride competitions that takes place in Verbier along with the Verbier Extreme. Note to self, take binoculars next time!

We skied down the Vallon d’Arbi (one of Verbier Itinerary un-pisted routes) to take us round to the Savoleyres side. This ski area is a must for your first days skiing. On Sunday or Monday, these pistes haven’t been discovered, the majority head straight up on the Medran. You will usually find yourself one of the very few on beautiful tree lined empty wide slopes.

We had a very late lunch at Carrefour, yum! Few bottles of Rose down and we skied down the La Rouge Piste  and we found ourselves only 3 minutes walk away from the Door of No.14. However, if your legs are a little tired or you want to have a few more drinks in the Le Rouge Bar, make the most of the 24hr driver service. 

Back at the Chalet, we were ready to try the spa on the ground floor. Never have i seen such a huge sauna. I wonder how many people could fit in there? The Hammam and Finnish cold water dipping poo was in competition with the sauna in terms of size! In between the 2 we had the pool, which has a state of the art jacuzzi with multi station water features to massage, relax and pummel. We were bought a glass of Champagne or a cocktail and there is also a spa bar which was loaded with beers and soft drink options. Let me tell you, it was hard to leave.

Our second night we met again for pre-dinner cocktails (mine a hazelnut espresso martini). We then sat down in the second dining area, felt like going to a different restaurant! Again Linda described her excitement at find such a fantastic cheese producer and how she sources the meat. We were all massively inspired! For a little theatre she told us instead of the meat being calved at the table she likes to calve the vegetarian option! A really nice gesture. The meal melted in the mouth, we didn’t want it to end.

As far as luxury chalets in Switzerland go, No.14 has got to be one of the top for service. It couldn’t have been any better. the facilities are second to none, the space in the bedrooms especially in the suites are huge which makes this one of the best Chalets in Verbier for Large Groups. 
 
We loved it.
