The best of Val D’Anniviers

Val d’Anniviers has accommodations to suit all needs and cheese lovers will be in paradise.

Guest House Hôtel Cervin

A classic hotel in St Luc that today is more of a basic six-story guesthouse. Perfect if you’re more interested in the mountains than your accommodations. There are plans to convert it into a more ­upmarket hotel next year.

Hotel Bella Tola 

The first hotel to be built in the Val d’Anniviers in 1859 now offers very charming four-star accommodations with 30 individually-­styled rooms. It is owned and ­managed by husband and wife team Anne-­Françoise and Claude Buchs. The Bella Tola also has two restaurants, a spa and an interior design store.

Grand Hotel Chandolin

This hotel is wonderfully located with lots of snow-covered 4,000m-high mountains visible on the horizon. The village of ­Chandolin is 2,000m above sea level and it is very calm and somewhat isolated. The hotel was built by the Pont Family that also developed the Bella Tola in St-Luc. It offers 55 rooms with one to four beds and accepts group bookings only. 


Le Grand Chalet Favre

This is a charming restaurant and renovated hotel with 15 rooms in the heart of St-Luc. The dining room has a fine chalet air and the dishes by chef Laurent Gallorini are based on local ­produce with a twist. Raclette ­evening every Wednesday. Spectacular view from the veranda of the mountaintops in the distance.

Restaurant de Moiry

The Salamin Family owns one of the oldest restaurants and simpler hotels in Grimentz. Raclette is the Moiry specialty, of course, and it is made the traditional way over an open fire. Guests include older regulars and starving hikers who pounce on the half-board menu.

Salaisons d’Anniviers

A local charcuterie maker that sells its produce near the village of Vissoie. This family-owned ­company produces a large range of different meat productsbased on secret recipes and flavored with wild mountain herbs. Don’t miss the wafer-thin sliced viande séchée made of beef – a magnificent Swiss delicacy that rivals the very finest Italian ­carpaccio.

Colline de Daval

Located in the town of Sierre, this building was built as a water tower to irrigate the vineyard in 1949. Current owners Monique and Bertrand Caloz added a level and converted Daval into the first bed & breakfast in Valais with a wine theme. The Colline de Daval with its five rooms is more reminiscent of a medieval knight’s castle today. You can also taste and buy the Caloz Family wines direct from the vineyard here.

Hotel Alpina

A neat and functional hotel with a prime location next to the new cable car line in the well preserved timber building village of Grimentz. The terrace of the three star Alpina also has one of the most popular après ski haunts in the village. 

Route de Roua 14, Grimentz

Chateau de Villa 

Take a break from the slopes with a day in Sierre, the wine capital and sunniest town of Switzerland. Its location on the banks of the Rhone is made for fine wines – thanks to a combination of sun soaked south facing slopes 500 meters above sea level and cool nights. Chateau de Villa markets Valais wines made by 110 local growers (with a wine list of 650) and organizes courses and tastings. The restaurant is also recommended for its raclette tasting menu. 

Rue de Sainte-Catherine 4, Sierre

Café des Voyageurs

This restaurant in tiny Noës, near the wine town of Sierre has great meat dishes, a large selection of tartes and warming fondue in winter. Don’t hesitate to ask for tasting suggestions from the friendly owner Elvis.
