Between family and social life, work, planning and managing daily tasks, do you feel the need to take a break? Why don’t you take a few friends and go to the mountains to recharge your batteries? Lush green pastures, yoga at sunrise, local crafts, tasting regional specialities and above all… relaxation. Verbier with all its facets can offer you an amazing, infinite playground!
It’s decided! You and your friends are on your way to Val de Bagnes. Three full days on the agenda dedicated to life’s pleasures. First stop is Le Châble, where a taxi awaits to take you to Vollèges for an excursion full of delicious treats. Because you love all kinds of cheese, you’ve invited your friends to watch the process of making this authentic local produce. First, you head to the Fromagerie d’Etiez cheese dairy, which includes a guided tour and tasting, then it’s onto the Tronc mountain pasture. This is a true homecoming where you get to meet the Hérens cows and their herders.
The afternoon is just beginning when you leave your suitcase at the end of the bed that you’ll sleep in for the next two nights. This weekend is dedicated to your wellbeing and you have chosen to spend it at Chalet d’Adrien. High up in the hills of Verbier, surrounded by nature, this enormous refuge with its wood panelling and antique furniture combines comfort and picturesque charm to guarantee you a truly exceptional stay. The view is breathtaking and the swimming pool immediately catches your eye. You can spend a good part of the afternoon here and finish the day with a delicious meal on the terrace. The next morning’s activity is the main subject of your discussions… As yoga enthusiasts, you’ve signed up to take part in a highly unusual class given by free-rider Emilien Badoux at the summit of Mont-Fort facing the sunrise!
The alarm clock goes off at dawn, and you take the hotel shuttle bus in the dark followed by the ski lifts. The day gradually brightens as you emerge onto the deck of the Mont-Fort cable car station at 3,300 m. The scenery is spectacular and calming. The immensity of the mountain, along with its beauty and its ruggedness, creates the ideal conditions for you to focus on yourself and to draw energy from the experience. As you perform your salutation, the sun is just on the horizon, casting its rays on the surrounding majestic peaks. The poses follow one after another, giving you a sense of wellbeing that lingers with you all day. But the day has only just begun and hunger is starting to creep in.
