Bare and bold is this minimalist mountain lodge set in the picturesque hamlet of Commeire, Soak up the serene atmosphere, gazing out on the inspiring mountain peaks whilst nestling in your comfy bed in one of the 17 century converted barns. Log fire and other winter warmers are being prepared for you, and you might even leave with a home... More

Our wedding event at Montagne Alternative was nothing short of magical. The place exceeded our expectations and was more stunning than any website or photos could have described. And most importantly the hotel staff lives with passion for the place and embodies the hotel’s concept of sustainable living that the village represents. This concept was abundant throughout the resort from... More

Commerce is a small mountain village where old wooden houses and barns have been converted to luxurious yet simple apartments without changing their external look. Both the service and food were excellent, especially breakfasts. We were not so lucky with the weather, so if you want to enjoy it, bring the weather with you.

A group of old colleagues meets once a year to recollect and share experiences. We chose MA as it was offering a unique experience. From the welcome to the end we had a great service and enjoyed our stay. The place is gorgeaous, the comfort excellent, the food fabulous, and the team very friendly!

I stayed at Montagne Alternative for a long weekend in February and was hugely impressed. Arriving late on a Friday evening as the snow was falling I had a glimpse in the dark of what was on offer but really it was the view the following morning that I was wowed by. Great food and a friendly atmosphere chatting to... More

There's only one why to describe this place, the service, and its atmosphere: spectacular! I will come here again, and again, and again. Funny enough I discovered it via the Financial Times, though I live just around the corner in the Lausanne region.

We came back to Montagne Alternative last month and stayed at the Six Blanc for a week with a couple of friends. What a place! Great vibe. Great sceneries. Great everything, really. As we arrived, the staff welcomed us in the parking lot and helped us with the luggage. We lit up the fire, plugged the iPod into the stereo... More

We've stayed at MA on various accasions over the past 2 years with friends and "à deux" and we are very likely to book our next stay again soon. From the moment you arrive, the staff make you feel at home. With attention to detail, the various barns have been restored to local traditions, the food is local produce and... More

Commeire is a small town with 13 inhabitants. You reach it by car after 5 kilometers of a winding and narrow road; this means there is zero traffic in town. You park your car at the entrance of the hamlet, and you walk to your home. Montagne Alternative is made of chalets and small townhouses that have been tastefully refurbished;... More

We spent 2 nights in Commeire during a team building event. The place is incredible - the views are spectacular, the scenery is breath-taking, the barns are very comfortable, the organisation was impeccable and the activities were fun and varied. I would recommned it very highly and am looking forward to going back soon!
