Welcome to the La Chaux alpine restaurant, where traditional specialties and a hearty, homey welcome go hand-in-hand.
Built in 1871, this picturesque gite is a wonderful example of local architecture. Built with solid wood beams called ‘madriers’ on a stone masonry base and covered with a snug, shingled roof, the building still looks as it did in the olden days. Inside, the central chimney still has the traditional truncated pyramid form.
Owned by the Bellon family, this was exclusively a dairy farm until 2008, at which point the family began keeping cows in summer only. Little by little, over three summers from 2019 to 2021, this historic building will be transformed into a bed and breakfast.
Additionally, visitors can purchase local products from the boutique or reserve activities such as a historical presentation of the building and its antiques or theme walks.
This alp restaurant is accessible :
– by car / bike upon an asphalted alp road (route du Jorat) or
– on foot, either from the summit of the Chairlift La Foilleuse (15 minutes) or from Morgins via Madzé (1h30).
Finally, from 2023, overnight guests can choose between the comfort of a guest room or a rough-and-ready sleepover in the barn.
