5 Reasons Why a Chalet in Verbier Can Boost Your Wellbeing

With absolutely wonderful scenery and landscapes, incredible leisure facilities and plenty of opportunities to recharge and unwind, life in Verbier is unlike anywhere else in the world.

The health and wellbeing benefits of rest and a good break aren’t exactly secret. However, the Swiss Alps offer the perfect balance between relaxation and adventure, which makes it practically unbeatable when it comes to a treat for the mind, body and soul.

But what exactly is it about taking a trip or that big move to Verbier that can provide a much-needed boost to your mental and physical health? In this article, we’ll run down everything this picturesque region has to offer and why buying a chalet in Verbier could be the ideal choice for you.

A little bit about Verbier

Verbier is a stunning village around 70km from Crans-Montana and offers a range of world-class skiing, nightlife, shopping, dining and accommodation options. It’s a huge draw thanks to some areas having year-round snow coverage, so whether you’re a fan of winter sports, hiking, sightseeing or relaxation, it has something for everyone.

The main draw for visitors coming to Verbier is the slopes, with 164km of marked runs, which are accessed by the 93 ski lifts across the area. Whether you’re just starting out with a new-found love for skiing or snowboarding, or you’re a seasoned pro, there are slopes suitable for all experience levels.

Why buying a chalet in Verbier could be good for you

Visiting Verbier will give you a short-term break from the hustle and bustle of life and will provide you with plenty of health benefits. But, to truly experience what the region has to offer and how it can boost those endorphins and slice stress, we’d recommend that you buy a chalet in Verbier so you can stay as long as you like.

Here are the five reasons why we think buying a chalet in Verbier could be good for your health.

1. Reduces stress

Verbier has miles and miles of breathtaking nature and scenery, with panoramic views of the Swiss Alps. Spending time in nature is proven to reduce stress, and because it’s harder to find natural surroundings better than this, Verbier is great for upping those feelings of calmness and serenity.

Life in Verbier is also taken at a far more relaxing pace than life in the city. The centre of Verbier is pedestrianised, which further adds to the peacefulness around the area. Taking a break from your usual routines, environment and stressors can do wonders for helping you to chill out – and a home in Verbier is the perfect place to help make that happen long-term.

2. Provides an escape

As the old saying goes, a change is sometimes as good as a rest. Of course, we’d recommend ensuring you have a rest as well as a change, because as much as we may try to have some downtime, it’s not always possible. But, the saying is actually backed by science as having health benefits.

Verbier has a wonderful atmosphere and sense of community, which only has around 3,000 permanent residents. During the busier months, there can be as many as 35,000 people in the area enjoying the local attractions, which always ensures you have someone new to meet.

Verbier also has plenty of choices away from your usual city hotspots, such as the incredible dining and entertainment options. This includes several Michelin-star restaurants, and plenty of celebrated hotels and venues.

Whatever an average day looks like to you, Verbier gives you plenty of ways to step back from it all and try something new.

3. Offers you opportunities for adventure

Having an adventure can have major benefits for your mental health, and was proven to do wonders to help maintain wellbeing during the pandemic.

As we’ve already highlighted, Verbier has plenty of options when it comes to providing you with adventure. And by moving to the area, they don’t have to be once-in-a-lifetime adventures, either - they can be every day adventures.

Whether you’re into winter sports such as snowboarding or skiing, hiking through the mountains, or enjoying the range of seasonal events, there are plenty of adventures to be had in Verbier.

4. Gives you a new way to keep fit

It goes without saying, but having a regular fitness routine will help you keep healthy and help prevent things such as obesity, heart disease, diabetes, stroke and even some types of cancer.

When you live in Verbier or visit often, you will have access to a huge selection of ways to exercise and keep fit. This includes:

  • Skiing and snowboarding
  • Hiking and trekking
  • Mountain biking
  • Yoga and meditation
  • Golfing
  • Gyms and fitness centres
  • Swimming

5. Boosts your physical and mental health

Spending time in Verbier will generally do wonders for your mental and physical health, even if you don’t decide to spend time adventuring or enjoying the slopes. We’ve already touched on how it can help reduce stress and increase calmness, but the Swiss Alps themselves can boost your overall wellbeing.

The mountain air around Verbier is incredibly clean and fresh, and generally free from pollutants and allergens which you’ll find in more urban areas. When air is clean it can improve your respiratory health which also benefits your digestion, energy levels and immune system.

Verbier also has a selection of wellness centres and spas, offering you plenty of ways to have some ‘you’ time, which is vital for your overall wellbeing.
