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!

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

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!

The service was excellent, the welcome and tour of the facilities warm and friendly and the accomodations five star. The building and interior are top quality and appeared to be brand new. The kitchen was fully stocked with everyone... More
