We have now completed the first two apartment buildings : Aiguilles Rouges & Tête Blanche, which is an achievement in itself, and establishes the architecture of the complex, allowing one to imagine the sense of place that will be created by the whole.

We broke ground at the end of 2016. Little by little the excavation work started to change the form of the landscape, with slopes and terraces creating the seat from which the thermal centre and hotel complex could evolve.

At times the Val d’Hérens has been known as the valley of the devil, our ancestors may have thought he was at work when they saw steam and hot water emerging from the ground at Combioule. Effectively there is a thermal source here, down under the valley floor below the pyramids...

Essertse is the name given to the high altitude plateau at over 2'300 m, situated at the foot of the peaks of the “Crêtes de Thyon”. This is a protected site that evolved over 13’000 years ago, and houses some of the highest peat bogs and wetlands in Europe with a unique natural habitat of rare plant and animal species.

There are many ways to reach Lac Bleu of Arolla (2090 m). The most popular is to start from La Gouille and walk through the larch forest to le Louché. The most direct is to go straight up from Satarma. And the most buccolic is follow a path that contours around the mountain from Arolla . Whichever route you choose, you will be rewarded by a picture postcard view!

The Grande-Dixence dam is the highest gravity dam in the world, at 285m. Following the hydroelectric installation at the beginning of the 21st century, the water can be driven to the Dent de Nendaz turbined on the valley floor at Bieudron around the clock.
