Sweet, central, Swiss cheese!
This gorgeous neo-colonial building caught our eye as we walked past one day, then further investigation revealed the presence of Raclette on the menu, confirming all the good vibes that had just been generated.
Auberge du Soleil is lovely, but simple with just three nicely turned out rooms above a very sweet, and popular, restaurant serving up lots of Swiss specialties. The atmosphere is romantic but unpretentious, and a great option for those who would like to stay at The Columns, but can’t stretch to the budget. The spotlessly clean air-con rooms are reasonably spacious, with wide, comfortable beds, flat screen TVs and minibars. Intriguingly, this is one of the only places we’ve encountered that will allow you to pay with Bitcoin. They have one twin and two double rooms.
