In July we stayed for the weekend at the Bergrestaurant Kubeliap in Saanen near Gstaad Switzerland. This was the third time and it keeps getting better. Our party consisted of 14 people (including 8 kids who loved it!) who all ate and slept well. Kubelialp is a traditional simple mountain restaurant/hotel a bit off the beaten path, that has a few double rooms, 4-er rooms, 6-er rooms and one big room for groups with sleeping bags. The restaurant is decorated with typical swiss wood carved paneling and has a lovely old green ceramic tile heating oven in one corner. It is light and airy with great views out of each window. The food has been consistently very good and the wine list is great. The family who run it are friendly and welcoming. Outside there is a large wooden terrace and a very pretty flower garden and it is surrounded by beautiful views, sunny meadows and steep mountains and the sound of distant cow bells. There are lovely hikes starting from there, and they even have their own mountain version of lawn bowling which the kids thought was fantastic. I feel very lucky to have found out about this place, it is a word-of-mouth secret gem that has breathtaking views, great food and where you are made to feel at home right away. Bring your car or hike up. In the winter you can ski to it and I am sure it is very cosy but we haven't tried that yet.
