The Grand Hotel Zermatterhof

  

A Suite With A View

By Night & Day

I like hotels with a history, the palaces that can reinvent themselves, while maintaining a charm of yesteryear. What a great pleasure to discover my Junior suite at the Grand Hotel Zermatterhof (1879), with wood panels in the entrance and separate dressing room! Photo-montage below: photos 1 and 2, well equipped entrance with coffee maker and mini bar. 

The hotel is located in the center of the village of Zermatt, a stone’s throw from the Matterhorn Museum – Zermatlantis and shopping streets. The first two photos of the article (above): the magnificent views (from my bed and living room) of the village and ubiquitous mountain. Another big crush: the chic contemporary bathroom! The rooms have been recently renovated. 

The lovely detail: the Pillow Menu to test my natural laziness (lol)! Unfortunately with my busy program, I will not have time to stop at the spa!

  

The Restaurants

Dinner At The Say Cheese!

A fondue with champagne and truffles at the Say Cheese! One of the three restaurants of the Grand Hotel Zermatterhof, specially dedicated to cheese. The dishes are delicious (photo above and photo montage below). The hot bread (which we cut by square) to dip in the fondue, is amazing!

The minimalist interior design made with stone and wood is warm. The service is perfect and the atmosphere is young. Definetly, THE address where to dine in Zermatt. 

La Brasserie Lusi

In the photo-montage below: 1, my favorite restaurant, the Say Cheese! 2 & 5. Another restaurant of the hotel, the Brasserie Lusi. After the cheese orgy of the day before, I had a tasty light dinner in a classic setting! 3 & 4. Light breakfasts (too) under the glass roof of the Brasserie Lusi. 6. The coat of arms of Zermatt: Prato Borni (is also the name of the gourmet restaurant of the Grand Hotel Zermatterhof).

Le Grand Hotel Zermatterhof à Zermatt

  

Une suite avec vue

De jour et de nuit

J’aime les hôtels avec une histoire, les palaces qui savent se réinventer, tout en conservant un charme d’antant. Quel plaisir en découvrant ma Junior suite au Grand Hotel Zermatterhof (1879), avec des panneaux de bois clair dans l’entrée et dressing séparés! Photo-montage ci-dessous : photos 1 et 2, l’entrée bien équipée avec cafetière et mini bar. 

L’hôtel est situé au centre du village de Zermatt, à deux pas du Musée du Cervin et de rues commerçantes. D’où cette magnifique vue de mon lit (première photo ci-dessus) et du salon (seconde photo ci-dessus), sur le village et la montagne omniprésente. Autre grand crush : la salle de bain simple, chic et contemporaine! Les chambres ont été rénovées récemment.

Et le fin du fin, le Menu d’Oreillers. Tout pour éprouver ma paresse naturelle (lol)! Programme chargé, je n’aurai malheureusement pas le temps de faire un stop au spa!

  

Les restaurants

Dîner au Say Cheese!

Une fondue au champagne et truffes au Say Cheese! Un des trois restaurants du Grand Hotel Zermatterhof, spécialement dédié au fromage. Les plats sont délicieux (photo ci-dessus et photo-montage ci-dessous). Le pain chaud (que l’on coupe par carré) à tremper dans la fondue, est à tomber!

La déco assez minimaliste de pierre et de bois m’a vraiment plu, le service est au top et la clientèle “jeune”. L’adresse où dîner à Zermatt.

La Brasserie Lusi

Dans le photo-montage ci-dessous : 1, mon restaurant préféré, le Say Cheese! 2 & 5. Autre restaurant de l’hôtel, la Brasserie Lusi, au cadre classique et où j’ai pris un dîner léger et savoureux, après l’orgie de fromage de la veille! 3 & 4. Petits déjeuners légers (aussi) sous la verrière de la grande salle de la brasserie Lusi. 6. Le blason de Zermatt

Guimarães Home Fashion Week

A Portuguese Textile Fair

I was invited at the Guimarães Home Fashion Week 2017 last summer. A great opportunity for me to discover some Portuguese textile manufacturers and brands. You know my great interest for textiles, interior design and architecture. 

The trade show was held in the beautiful Pousada Mosteiro de Guimaraes. This heritage monument gave something particular to the event. The brands presented their collection in bedrooms, or in spaces decorated with Ajuleros (stunning ancient tiles).

Check out the pictures of my selection of trends and products I liked. Photomontage above: here are my favorite, the Colma Co smart textiles with ethnic inspiration. Photomontage below: 1, a set of shits and towels with a very fresh palm design by Renaitex. 2, cushions in satin fabrics by Cristina Teixeira.

Faded grey bathrobes (above) and towel set and beautiful colorful bath towels (pictures below) by Domingos de Sousa.

Photomontage above : 1, very nice colorful cushion with owl by JPS Home & Textil. 2 and 3, two beautiful fountains of the Pousada Mosteiro de Guimaraes. 4, In each bedroom, a brand exhibited its latest collection.

The MoreTextile group has the most beautiful exhibition space (photos above and below) with greenery, columns, fountain and azulejos! Amazing!

  

Exciting Visit of The Mundotextil Factory

Discovery of a Modern Production

I really enjoyed my private visit, with a Polish designer friend, at MundoTextil, the manufacturer specialized in towels.

Fascinant de découvrir les différents mode de fabrication du textile! Mes deux précédentes expériences étaient à Kyoto, avec le maître tisseur des étoffes de l’empereur Japon et un atelier de tissage en Thaïlande. 

I was completely fascinated by the different steps of textile manufacture in a modern factory! My previous two experiences were in Kyoto, with the weaver master of outstanding fabrics for the Emperor of Japan and a silk workshop in Thailand.

The Magic Starts With a Thread,

then many (photomontage above). Once woven, the fabrics are washed, “ironed” and cut into towels (photomontage below).

We followed all the different steps, from the showroom (presentation and sale of the collections) to the exciting production spaces and creative studio.
