After many years of good and loyal service, the Vatel Group had the aid of the French – Swiss Agency known as sbriglio.Architectes. This agency can be recognized for its work on the renowned project of the Arteplage de Neuchatel (Swiss National Exhibition 2002). The agency was hired to recreate the structure and design of the Vatel Restaurant.
On the evening of the inauguration, Vatel Switzerland’s General Director, Mr. Yves Defalque had the pleasure and honor to receive Mr. Christophe Darbellay, the State Counsellor of Valais, Mr. Jean-Philipe Lonfat, Head of the Educational Department of Valais, and Mr. Claude Pottier, Chef of training and service guidance in Valais. A presence of political figures as well as the administration of the canton, have come together to rejoice in the establishment of Vatel Switzerland, one of the major players in hotel training. It was also the opportunity to celebrate Vatel Switzerland’s new accreditation as an “École Supérieure”.
Tastefully refurbished and decorated, this re-opening marks a gratifying satisfaction for the students working in practical and in turn to the guest’s experience. It is important to remember that Vatel Switzerland’s future hoteliers evolve within a week or two during their practical training at the hotel and restaurant. These renovation projects will continue throughout the hotel and its rooms in the year 2020. The students are impatiently waiting for you to discover and experience Vatel Switzerland’s gastronomy!
