What we like about this property

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! Glamping in Switzerland, 22nd-century style.

Description

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, they coexist in the rugged natural environment by clever structural camoflauge and harmonizing with the seasons.  

Bold yet subtle, this collection of 15 individual geodes offer self contained individualized living and understated luxuries. The geometric architecture means the interiors are bright open plan spaces that have been configured to accomodate up to three or a family of four. Each 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.

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

The lodge is the hub of the property and features the gathering spot for breakfast and bar as well as a lounge and games room. Fifteen minutes down the hill is the superb restuarant Les Cerniers that services the property and surrounding town below. 

Smartly designed, environmentally conscious and decidedly stylish, these pods are a welcome vacation alternative. 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Daily breakfast included. Spa and massage services, sauna available on site. Wifi in the main lodge. Complimentary backpack kits include: walk talkies and maps, head lamps and binoculars. Snowshoes and crocs provided for getting around the camp. Luxury eco-bedding and toiletries. Daily wood delivery in winter and “pod service” meals available in summer. You’ll have private beginner to intermediate ski slopes to enjoy in winter.

AROUND

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