  • Overview

    Montagne Alternative is a small boutique hotel in Commeire, a remote hamlet in the Swiss Valais in the neighbouring valley to Verbier. Utterly charming, it is comprised of three meticulously renovated barns, whose traditional exteriors belie the clean-lined and contemporary style within.

    There are not many boutique hotels that can boast a sweeping view of Mont Blanc, but the Montagne Alternative is such a place. Surrounded by fairytale forest and mist-shrouded mountains, it is an ideal escape for romancing couples and families alike.


    Montagne Alternative offers plenty of winter activities. Mountain hiking and skiing guides can be arranged by the staff, as can massage and yoga instruction. There's something for every season at Montagne Alternative; winter sport enthusiasts flock here in the colder months, walkers and rock climbers in the warmer seasons. Autumn is a particularly beautiful time to visit, and should not be overlooked. 


    Montagne Alternative can be rented on a  half-board or full-board basis.

    Montagne Alternative boasts 3 beautifully converted barns, the Six Blanc, the Barbey and the newly-opened Rogneux.

    Six Blanc: sleeping up to six people, this petite barn looks out over Mont Blanc and Mont Vélan. It has 3 double bedrooms, all with en-suites, a spacious living and dining area, fully-equipped kitchen and a reading room. What gives it the feel of a proper boutique hotel? Luxurious touches, like the traditional hammam, sweeping terrace and stylishly contemporary interiors.

    Barbey: a larger barn conversion than the Six Blanc, Barbey sleeps up to ten people. Light and airy, it has 5 double bedrooms with en-suites, a kitchen/dining room, impressive entrance hall and a south-facing terrace as charming as its sister property's. Both barns have iPod docks, fresh linens and internet connection as standard.

    Le Rogneux: A haven nestled in the lush palm of Valais, this old barn, completely renovated with respect for tradition is truly a place of inspiration and relaxation. Clinging to the hillside the barn offers incredible views across the glacier Orny. All rooms look out across the Val d’Entremont offering a unique evening spectacle as the light of the setting sun plays on the neighbouring peaks.  After a full, invigorating day in the mountains, return to a roaring fire, delicious dinner, warm bath and massage. Add Rogneux's exquisite views of the alpine sunset to the equation, and it's difficult to imagine a more sublime experience.
