SWITZERLAND – LES CERNIERS

Located at 1400 meters, in a private ski area in Switzerland, at the foot of the “Dents-du-Midi”, nestled above the picturesque village of Les Cerniers ,Whitepod, was awarded with the World Prize for Sustainable Tourism in 2005 and is a Unique Alpine Experience. As a Member of ECO Luxury Retreats of The World has an original concept that offers a unique and unforgettable experience in a beautiful mountain environment. 15 spacious and luxurious domes (the pods) based in a high mountain pasture, welcome guests in a cozy atmosphere.

Far from all urban nuisances the area is a perfect site for this unique ecological concept designed to be in total harmony with the surrounding environment.

The Resort provides an alternative means to explore the Swiss Alps. With the use of the pods (dome shaped tents), pitched on wooden platforms, Whitepod offers low impact accommodation in an untouched and pristine alpine environment. Isolated from all urban pollution, the mountain region lends itself beautifully to such an eco-tourism development. The Whitepod site comprises of fifteen 40 sq.m. geodesic tents, with fantastic view of Lake Geneva! The cozy tents are furnished carefully with unique and antique objects from the region, soft carpet and large comfortable beds. The Scandinavian designed bathrooms are directly linked with warmed spring water. Wood stoves and good insulation guarantee a very high comfort and warmth atmosphere all day and night long. A pod is a geodesic structure anchored on wooden platforms, and naturally isolated from the cold and the snow.

All pods are equipped with wood-burning stoves, organic luxury bedding and full services bathrooms. At the center of the 15 pods, stands a charming early 1800s wooden chalet where guests meet for breakfast in the morning or gather in the evening around its central fireplace for evening drinks and socializing.

Whitepod aims to be a model for sustainable tourism by using a number of measures to limit its impact on nature, for example

  • Minimize daily water and electricity consumption
  • Reduce waste production
  • Favor the use of renewable resources
  • Increase the clients’ awareness of environment protection

One of a kind, is the activity offered, the Dog sledging ballad,where you can discover the mountains while being guided comfortably installed in a sled for 2 poeple. Ride through forests and snowy fields and feel..unique!
