— Tell us about Montagne Alternative in a nutshell.
— Montagne Alternative barn
— Please tell us a bit about the history of the village of Commeire.
I arrived here by chance as I wanted to go skiing in the Swiss Alps and I was really surprised by the beauty of the nature and all the potential of the village. The place is extremely scenic! I thought I would never again find such a beautiful place. And very quickly I had the opportunity to buy the first barn.”
— And that’s how Montagne Alternative got started?
The first barn took me two years to renovate as I had no architect. It was a huge project and so much work. For the renovation of the barn I tried to respect the history of the place and worked very closely with the locals.
When we were finished we had the opportunity to buy another two barns. So that’s when the idea of Montagne Alternative slowly evolved. We hired a great architect to help us with the restoration and today we have five barns and two beautiful village houses. We will have a few more barns in the future.”
