Dear friends, dear guests

 after 31 years of our conduction and 91 years of family business the Hotel Du Lac will close by the end of this year and begin a new activity.

It wasn’t an easy decision make since many emotions, passion and hard work have been put in the Hotel during three generations.

We are near to retirement and a decision was quite appropriate.

After being a silk factory (1800), later a small guesthouse (1890) the building became a little and simple hotel in 1920, when our grandparents started the family business. Later our parents started a new era with a larger and well equipped 4-star hotel (1964); the old building was destroyed and a new one rebuilt. We took over the business in 1981 and refurbished ever since. Now the Butterfly will face a metamorphosis and a new retirement residence will take the place of the hotel, including a new building in the parking area..

It will take three to four years to get the construction finished and re-open the activity.

We would like to thank you so much for the support and trust you have shown our family and our hotel over the last three decades and hope to see you in a couple of years on the terrace for a drink.

We look forward to starting this challenge and in the meantime we wish you a Merry Christmas, a very happy New Year, good health and serenity.

 With our best regards.

And all our crew
