This hotel is one of the first, if not the first in Villars, built, I believe, for the English. This is the last month it will operate in its original form. Next month a massive 2.5 year renovation will start, the biggest building project in Switzerland.
I feel priviledged to have been one of the last to have experienced its genteel splendour.
My friend Monica and I went, for me a hike, for her gentle stroll, to see the little Adonis in flower. They only flower for 2 weeks in one location near Martigne. It is a ritual that she observes every spring. It was very bracing hauling myself up the Mountain in a howling gale! I must be mad but I admit I felt pleased with myself for making the effort.
Today is glorious, so Lavey les Bain for a pamper or more walking? Ummmm? Hard one!
