We spent a fabulous skiing week at Hôtel du Pillon, arriving February 12, 2010. We so appreciated the hosting, cooking and wine skills of Francis Barlier and his staff. The hotel is ideally located a kilometer or so from Les Diablerets, looking down on the village. This means evening sun (a lot longer than in the village center) and beautiful views from the room balcony.
WiFi is included in the hotel rates, so you can use your phone (or laptop) to send photos or video clips from the slopes to friends and family the very same day.
For skiers like us, there is a convenient ski stoorage room in the basement, equipped with brand new air dryers for ski boots. It is as easy to appreciate the charm of this renovated 1875 hotel building, as it is to put up with private shower and WC across the hall - and with the narrow road leading up to the hotel.
We hope to be coming back for summer hiking in the beautiful mountains surrounding the valley.
