Summer Activities

by | Jul 15, 2017 | Being a Property owner in Verbier

As the Verbier Sport Centre has burnt down we made a list of suggestions for you property owners or rental holiday makers with things Verbier has to offer as entertainment during this summer.
Music
Be that classic to rock, pop or jazz performed and played all over town and in pubs, bars and restaurants.
Golf
From a simple family game, taking some lessons or trying to win one of the many tournaments.
Biking
Verbier offers and amazing amount of offroad trails, road bike runs or, the simple pleasure of taking the bike up with the lift to Les Ruinettes and ride down with your friends and family. And, then all the different races until the winter season starts again in mid-November.
Ask our partner http://jetverbier.ch about tracks or advice about bikes and equipment.
Swimming
