As well as being a family business shaped by the many generations who have run it, the Hôtel & Spa La Vallée*** is one of the oldest accommodations of the Bagnes Valley and Verbier area. The first documents recording its activities as guest house and restaurant date back to 1893. In 1901, it was transformed into a hotel and then, after a fire, was converted into apartments. In 1954, the Michellod Family takes over the bar-restaurant and becomes in 1961 the owner of the whole building. The property is then extended, renovated, regaining its original function of hotel and café-restaurant and is run for over 30 years by the Michellod Family. Since 1995, the hotel has been taken over by the Pellissier Family (namely, the daughter and son-in-law of the Michellod Family). Again, they renovated and adapted the building to current needs: every room is decorated in a different style and has a private bathroom, TV/radio and wifi.
The hotel offers an all-inclusive service for your stay in the mountains. Once you are there, just forget about everything else and enjoy your holiday! For you, the owners take care to book restaurants, taxis, ski instructors, mountain guides as well as sporty activities, cultural visits, wine tastings, local products discoveries, etc. They know a lot of great places to make your stay as pleasant as possible. You can also rely on them to get valuable advice on ski days, hiking or biking trails in the area; they will be more than happy to spend a few minutes with you to prepare your next adventure!
Jean-Marc and Patricia Pellissier have been owning and managing the hotel for over 20 years and consider that skiing and biking is part of their life balance. Driven by passion, this duo of hotelkeepers is always eager to satisfy the guests, gladly answering any questions, giving considerate advice and making sure that everyone leaves satisfied.
We cannot introduce the team without mentioning Grandma Denise, mother of Patricia and former owner and manager of the hotel, which she ran for more than 30 years with her late husband, Edouard Michellod. Being over 80 is not a problem for the doyenne of the house who always finds something to lighten the task of the owners: laundry or dishes washing, jams cooking or gardening; the octogenarian never seems to have run out of energy and her attendance at work and dedication are impressive.
Let us not forget about the children and godchildren of the family who can also frequently be spotted behind the bar or in the kitchen giving a helping hand. As a true family business, Jean-Marc and Patricia also rely on the marketing services of their daughter Nancy to ensure the promotion of the place. And, last but not least, a housekeeper completes this team.
