Verbier, a two hours car journey from Geneva airport, is our original home and was purpose built in 1991. Southern facing stone and wooden chalets with a capacity of 146.
Despite Verbier’s reputation as a leading ski resort in the winter, the summer is packed with festivals, mountain sports and visitors from all over the world.
Each weekend brings a new crowd starting the summer with the Verbier Festival, a prestigious Classical Music Festival, attended by the most esteemed musicians from around the world, to the splendid display of athleticism offered in the Jumping International de Verbier Equestrian events towards the end of August.
All rooms are ensuite, with a chalet for boys and a separate chalet for girls, with up to four sharing per room.
The campus includes two large dining rooms, games room with table tennis, billiards and table football and a cinema room.
The surrounding campus offers a grass football pitch, outdoor table tennis, basketball courts, ski and snowboard storage, a volleyball pitch and, in the summer, even a trampoline with safety net.
Whether it is sports, music or arts and crafts, games with the staff or each other, there are always a selection of activities on offer outside of the busy schedule of planned activities: winter, spring or summer.
Our two purpose built wood and stone chalets follow the Swiss Alpine tradition and offer charm and comfort to our guests.
Both chalets are situated in green, peaceful surroundings and only five minutes from the center of Verbier.
The girls and boys are separated in each of the two chalets, which are completely equipped for holiday camps :
- A permanently staffed and welcoming reception hall
- Large rooms with two to four beds and ensuite bathrooms
- Two spacious, sunny dining room with an open-planned sitting room
- Open fireplace leading onto a south facing terrace with a barbecue
- A library, games hall, cinema, music room ( or discothèque )
- Conference rooms and internet room
- Professionally equipped kitchens in both buildings
- All equipment for indoor and outdoor games and sports: football field, basketball, volleyball and badminton courts, golf putting/driving range, trampoline, pétanque area and climbing walls
Les Elfes Camps offer a large buffet breakfast and a range of varied and exciting lunch and evening meal options.
All of our food is prepared using fresh products and the wide-ranging international menus are well balanced, tailored specifically to suit the needs of our students throughout their active programmes with us.
Our kitchens cater for all dietary requirements and menus can be personalised to suit the requirements of your group.
With such a busy programme of activities it is likely students will be off-campus for their lunch. For our winter camps in Verbier students will have use of our two, private Les Elfes restaurants on the mountain where they will receive hot fresh meals while they relax after a busy morning of skiing.
With our Summer programmes we also use these restaurants for stunning, mountain-top BBQs or we provide packed lunches for activities outside of the resort.
