Who, Where, 

What, When, Why

Borrowing the Five Elements of Circumstance to explain the raison d’être for a mountain hotel was perhaps not what Aristotle had in mind – but it suits our story well.

1. We are a group of friends with a lifelong attachment to the mountains and all that they offer.

That’s the WHO.

2. We met in Verbier in the 80’s fell in love with the 4 Valleys including the ideally situated town of La Tzoumaz. That’s the WHERE.

3. The charming, albeit slightly neglected, Hotel de la Poste came up for sale. That’s the WHAT.

4. In the autumn of 2019 we managed to close the deal, renovated and re-opened for Christmas. Whew! That’s the WHEN.

5. We are certain that if you give us and our equally passionate and even more charming staff a chance to be your hosts you will understand the WHY!
