Founded in August 1998, «The Friends of Verbier» is a multicultural association of native Verbier residents and regular visitors.
The aim of the association is both civic and social: to help make the stay of visitors and those who make a second home here more rewarding, easing integration into the Bagnes valley and providing activities and excursions.
More than half the members are Swiss, and almost everyone speaks English. The local government of Bagnes has provided Les Amis with the charming old chalet Montfleury, and many local businesses sponsor the association.
The Friends of Verbier is an apolitical organisation.
Les Amis funds the Verbier Library, which is an essential resource for local schoolchildren and recreational readers alike. Members have full and free use of the library, which offers free WIFI, coffee and tea and a comfortable lounge area in which to relax, converse and listen to music.
Bridge players of every level meet daily throughout the year upstairs in their own rooms equipped with bridge tables, where snacks and drinks are also available.
