Chalet Pierrepoint Ski Armadillo Verbier Switzerland

Luxury Chalets in Verbier with Ski Armadillo

Veriber and luxury chalets go hand in hand in the ski resort and there is no better place to stay than with Ski Armadillo. They provided high-end accommodation catered and self-catering for ski holidays in Verbier Switzerland. Their properties are great for guests who are looking for luxury, style and five-star service. 

Here is my full review of Ski Armadillo luxury chalets in Verbier Switzerland and why you should stay there. 

Ski Armadillo Luxury Chalets Verbier

Ski Armadillo is a luxury chalet company that offers accommodation in Verbier and Nendaz Switzerland and Meribel France. They pride themselves on giving personalised first-class service to all their guests from start to finish. This includes private chefs (in the catered chalets), a dedicated chalet host, and a complimentary shuttle. Which can take you anywhere you need to go around the resort.

It also boasts a concierge service, who can assist with ski lessons, organising dinner reservations, equipment rental and all other needs of guests. While it is a Sunday to Sunday turnaround, the catered chalet offers 5 nights of catering, this is due to European law and regulations regarding working hours.

Chalet Pierrepointe

Chalet Pierrepoint is a lovely addition to the Ski Armadillo luxury chalets in Verbier where we stayed. It has 5 bedrooms all with ensuites that can easily sleep up to 10 guests. It is a catered chalet that can be exclusively rented for groups or families who want that bit of luxury, comfort and style.

Chalet Pierrepointe is located just over 5 minutes walk to Place Centrale (centre of town) and a 10 minute walk from the main lift station, Medran, where ski hire and ski lockers are located. However, if you don’t want to walk, the free Ski Armadillo shuttle will pick you up.

In 2020, the Chalet was completely renovated to the high standard it is today with a sauna, hot-tub and outdoor area. The contemporary Pierrepoint is a free-standing 3-storey chalet with south-westerly facing balconies. The bedrooms are on the ground and second floor, while the main living area is on the first.  I love the fact that some of the walls on all levels were glass to take advantage of the scenery outside.

Facilities at the Chalet Pierrepont

The open-plan living on the first floor is a dedicated social and living space. It has a log fire, an eating and lounge area, a kitchen and a balcony with full-width floor-to-ceiling windows that take in the amazing views of the valley and mountains. My favourite part of the day was coming back, having the chalet host serve me wine and taking in the view. 

On the ground floor, you will find the entrance, a storage area where you can hang up your ski jackets and the hot tub and sauna. Plus two of the bedrooms and a toilet. It was another great way to relax after a hard day of skiing was hanging out in the hot tub and hammam (sauna).

The Rooms

Chalet Pierrepointe has five bedrooms with ensuites across two levels that can comfortably sleep up to 10 guests. Our room was on the ground floor and had views overlooking the front garden. Which looked stunning with a fresh dump of snow covering the bushes. 

It was a nice size room with a coat rail and fitted both our ski bags. Our bathroom had a shower and had been designed to maximise space. It was equipped with bathrobes and slippers that were great to use in the next-door sauna and hot tub. 

Soeder The Luxury Product Supplier

All of the chalets managed by Ski Armadillo bathroom products are supplied by Soeder. A Swiss owned and based company that produces natural soap and bathroom products in a variety of fragrances. There are no artificial additives, just ingredients like wheat protein and Swiss honey.

Meaning they are good for different types of skin, especially in the harsh weather in the Swiss Alps and they are not animal tested. In the bathroom, refillable brown glass bottles are used, as they can be filled and are great for sustainability and the environment.

Food Provided

One of the things that the Ski Armadillo prides itself on across its luxury catered chalets is its food and service throughout all meals. The personal chefs bring their unique flair and style to create seasonal menus for guests, while the chalet host will be on hand to take care of you and serve your drinks.  

Breakfast, afternoon tea with canapés, pre-dinner drinks and a 3-course gourmet dinner with paired wine is provided for 5 days of the stay. Meals can be customised for guests who have any allergies or dietary requirements. However, let them know in advance, as some products may need to be pre-ordered. 

Our private chef was Maco who had loads of experience and a great knowledge of food. Kim our chalet host was always on hand to help and offered great recommendations for wine. 

Breakfast is served

A continental breakfast, with cooked options, is available at all the catered chalets for five days of the week. The breakfasts in the luxury Pierrepointe chalet were up there as a true delight. Every morning there was something different like freshly baked croissants topped with rocket, bacon and scrabble eggs.

If you want something special, no worries because you can put in a personal order for breakfast and the chef will make what you want as a special request.

Free Ski Armadillo Shuttle

There is a complimentary Ski Armadillo shuttle in Verbier for guest staying in their luxury catered chalets. Service is available daily from 08:00 until 20:00. All you need to do when you want to be picked up is ring the driver to collect you. I enjoyed having this service and all three shuttle drivers were always so nice and friendly.
