Serenity, calm, peace of mind, tranquility, well being, ... are synonyms to this magnificent resort with breathtaking views of the swiss mountains. This is not your regular five stars chain hotel; this is a boutique hotel where all rooms are located in small bungalows with stunning mountain views. The rooms are not equipped with TV's nor Telephone sets: who needs...

Stayed here for a yoga retreat over the weekend and did not want to leave! The setting is just out of this world. Each chalet has large south facing windows with picture postcard views. We arranged for a transfer from Martigny train station to the hotel. which is expensive if travelling alone (CHF120) but the minibus can take up to...

We were 5 adults who met to celebrate my mother-in-laws birthday! The beautiful scenery is breathtaking and the renovated cottages are truly a great work of art. Unfortunately there were too many "hiccups" and faux-pas which left us very much disappointed and convinced we won't be back. My mother in law ordered in advance a meal other than the raclette,...

Dear Madam, dear Sir, Thank you for your review and I am sorry that you have not enjoyed your stay with us. I am quite surprised and disappointed to read your comments about Menrad who made the raclette since most of our guests have praised us for the hospitality he offers. Concerning the price, all our rates – rooms and...

Excellent location away from it all. Spacious rooms, very modern facilities, great views of the mountains. The original appearance of the hamlet has been preserved very well. The food is definitely not run-of-the-mill; it took a bit of getting used to.

Niched high in the mountains, a unique place to get away from all stress & obligations. Only local, biological products to buy in the hotel shop and to taste in the minimalistic but stylish restaurant. No need for tv in the room: you have spectacular views through massive bay window. Luxury bathroom. Not cheap but extraordinary!

How can you kill mushrooms? With soap. Apricots? By putting vergin oil on them and rosemary. Terrible food, very bad atmosphere, typically neoSwiss unfortunately, please change or disappear. Also, we were many, they did a square table for us as if we were on a conference!!

Just back from a two-day Business Retreat at the Montagne Alternative and it was fantastic. The idea of mixing a hotel with the locals in a tiny hamlet and converting old barns and buildings into chalets and meeting rooms works wonderfully and the concept of Getting Back to Nature is fantastic. The rooms are basic and yet elegant (in traditional...

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...

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.
