Designed mazot in Switzerland

DesireCocon cosy
It's probably (for now), one of the best kept secrets of the Alps.

Montagne Alternative, situé à 1 heure de Lausanne et 20 minutes de Verbier est un endroit où le temps semble s’être figé. Une parenthèse de douceur pour urbains stressés.

Montagne Alternative, c’est un concept original : d’anciens mazots éparpillés dans un vieux village suisse, rachetés au compte goutte par un amoureux du lieu et ensuite transformés en granges design, élégantes et minimalistes. Le contraste est surprenant : les mazots ont su garder toute leur authenticité à l’extérieur tout en étant relookés en un cocon douillet, chaleureux (cheminées et hammams…) et luxueux à l’intérieur. Différents designers ont travaillé sur la décoration et sont allés chiner la dernière chaise vintage ou le dernier sofa tendance à Londres ou Bruxelles.

La force de Montagne Alternative est de réussir à conjuguer cette atmosphère cosy et raffinée tout en étant au cœur de la montagne et des activités qui y sont inhérentes. Au départ des chalets, balades en raquettes (voir expérience), ski de fond et ski alpin (petites stations à quelques kilomètres en voiture). Ici, on se sent comme à la maison, avec de façon concomitante l’omniprésence du silence qui peut rendre ce séjour un peu monacal. Une retraite au fin fond de la Suisse.

 

Montagne Alternative, situated one hour away from Lausanne and 20 minutes from Verbier, is an area where time appears to standstill. A digression of softness for urban stresses.
Montagne Alternative is an original concept: old wooden barns scattered in an old swiss village, the lover of this place bought it then transformed it into a designed mazot, elegant and minimalistic. The contrast is astonishing: the mazots have kept their authenticity outside while being redesigned into a cozy cocoon, warm (chimneys and steam…) and luxurious inside.
Different designers have worked on the decoration and went antiquing for the latest vintage chair or latest trendy sofa from London or Brussels.

The strength of Montagne Alternative is succeeding to combine the cozy atmosphere and elegance while being in the heart of the mountain and the activities that are inherently within. Leaving from the chalet, snowshoeing (an experience to live), cross-country skiing and downhill skiing (little stations a few miles by car).
Here, it feels like home, with an accompanying way of the infinite silence that can make this stay a little monastic. A retreat in the depths of Switzerland.
Montagne Alternative is enjoyed between friends, family, but also a couple, or even between colleagues! Many companies organize their seminars and rent the quiet location for efficient reflection among colleagues. You have the possibility of reserving, a la carte, a room or entire chalet. We definitely recommend the second option. Among friends. Formula tested. A must.

Behind this original idea, who took this place with hard work is Benoit, a Belgium who’s first life was an entrepreneur in Belgium then in China. Montagne Alternative, it’s the true return of simple pleasures, at real value, at the physical serenity, at psychological tranquility.
