Looking for a quiet place to enjoy good life, great food and tremendous views on the Alps, you'll find it here. Besides the excellent and respectful service you will be able to take advantage of the wellness facilities (fitness room, indoor swimming...

We had a lovely lunch there. The food was great and great selection of local wines. The only down side for me was not enough vegetable with my main course. I'd recommande it and the view of the mountains is amazing.

We have been there for a family weekend and the hotel is fantastic. The staff is amazingly friendly, always available to help and willing to make us have the perfect weekend. The hotel is very well located, with a good set of services and a great restaurant.

Very nice location by a little lake and with a wonderful view of the valley. The extraordinary aspect is the silence that you experience from your room with the outside world...not a noise. My room was very generous in size with a comfortable sleeping area and seperate living area ,nice bathroom , wonderful terrace and an excellent coffe machine ....

Be careful with this hotel if you arrive late at night or depart early in the morning. There is no 24-hours Front Desk service in summer and there is no info about it on the hotel’s web site. Moreover, they don’t do breakfast before 7:30am. If you leave early & breakfast is included into your room rate, think what you...

In our hotel there is a desire for renewal where our rooms are refurnished, where the way of welcoming our guests has improved.

“Ask for a room on the side of the hotel overlooking the valley and the Alps. This will also put you away from any early morning traffic on the entrance side of the hotel.”

“We were upgraded and had a balcony overlooking the mountains on the other side of the valley, asking for a view of the mountains would ensure you do not miss beautiful sunsets.”
