M.A. consists of several duly restored Swiss chalets located in a beautiful surrounding. The restoration was undertaken carefully keeping the old structure of both the chalets and the village – a clear plus of M.A. by which it sets out against many other projects of such kind. However, the designers’ intentions don’t seem to be implemented everywhere: The hotel rooms... More

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

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
