Savills purchases Verbier Hospitality SA to grow ski offering

Switzerland: International real estate services firm Savills has expanded its European residential network by acquiring Swiss holiday rental agency Verbier Hospitality SA, also known as Verbier Location.

Founded in 1991, Verbier Location specialises in holiday rentals in Verbier, in southern Switzerland, and provides a full service offering for owners looking for short-term rental and property management.

The acquisition marks Savills’ residential expansion further into Europe and brings a new service line to the Savills Ski network, which includes six branded Savills offices and two associates across the Alps.

Verbier Location will continue operating alongside the existing Savills office in Verbier, as well as enabling an integrated sales and seasonal rental platform for clients.

Jeremy Rollason, head of Savills Ski, said: “Jürgen and his experienced team are well-established and highly respected in the Verbier market and will bring valuable expertise and market knowledge to our existing sales business. This acquisition means that we can now extend both property management and dedicated rentals as part of a full package of property services to our clients in  this important Swiss ski resort.”

Verbier Location founder Jürgen Taudien said: “Savills will add precious international knowhow and real estate expertise to our existing business. I am very excited about this new partnership which will open new opportunities for the benefit of all our customers, property owners, service partners and my devoted team at Verbier Location.”

In October, Franco-Swiss high-end, short-term rental property management scale-up Emerald Stay made its own acquisition in the Verbier market with the purchase of Cotswolds-based luxury chalet operator Ski Verbier Exclusive.
