The Pods

Les Cerniers, Switzerland
A Unique Hotel in the Heart of the Swiss Alps

A brilliant eco-friendly concept and a great design statement, the unconventional mix of rustic country, futuristic geometric design, and majestic mountain views made us take notice. Slightly alien, these pods appear to have landed from somewhere! 

This installation takes "glamping" to new heights. Centered around a central chalet, these eco-pods appear both natural and out of this world. Nestled above breathtaking mountain vistas at an altitude of 1,400 meters, they coexist in the rugged natural environment by clever structural camouflage and harmonizing with the seasons.  

Bold yet subtle, this collection of 18 individual geodes, four suites, and nine suites-chalets offer self-contained individualized living and understated luxuries. The geometric architecture of the pods means the interiors are bright open-plan spaces that have been configured to accommodate up to three or a family of four. 

Each pod features a luxurious super-king bed and double mezzanine level bed along with a full shower room. Cozy but with plenty of light, each pod features floor-to-ceiling windows that offer magnificent views, fireplaces for cozy winter nights, and private panoramic decks. Individually furnished with a great selection of local handpicked and often handmade items and crafts, there's a singular personality to each.

The Pods

Shimmering brightly and all but disappearing into the snowy landscape in winter, they are camouflaged in spring and summer to blend seamlessly into the landscape.

The nine new suites-chalets each have three bedrooms,  two bathrooms, a lounge bathed in light, a kitchen, and a dining room, as well as a beautiful sunny terrace with a peaceful view across the Swiss Alps. 

All pods and suites-chalets have electricity, are heated, and have a fully-fitted bathroom. The pods are located 15 minutes from the main reception, and the suite-chalets are a five-minute walk. The lodge is the hub of the property and is the gathering spot for breakfast and bar as well as a lounge and games room. Fifteen minutes down the hill is the superb restaurant Les Cerniers that services the property and surrounding town below. 

Smartly designed, environmentally conscious, and decidedly stylish, this unique hotel is a welcome vacation alternative. 

 

AN ALL-SEASON, HIGH ALTITUDE ADVENTURE

You'll be able to see the twinkling lights of Monthey in the distance but that's as close as you'll get to anything but wild nature here. Designed to remove you from modern life, the camp is a remote back to nature experience. With private ski slopes and protected parkland surrounding the camp there is unlimited outdoor activities to participate in. 

Activities all around: dog sledding tour, hiking with husky, hug therapy, hikes: slow forest, alpine odyssey, compass mission, raclette one the way, forest escape game, paragliding with a certified pilot, ski touring, snowshoe hiking, wine tour, guided mountain hiking tours.

Perched above the Rhone Valley, and within driving distance of Lake Geneva, Villars and Leysin.
