Lovely modern/traditional hotel featuring sheep
Posted Sep 9, 2016 on Hotels
Absolutely loved the Julen for our stay in Zermatt! Lovely flower-covered hotel just a couple minutes walk to the main-drag of Zermatt. The family who runs the hotel is deeply rooted in Zermatt - they even preserve the traditions of the valley by raising blacknose sheep, the mascot for Zermatt, they use the wool and products of the sheep and invite guests to visit the flock in the mountains during the summer or in the barn in the rest of the year. It was one of the highlights of our Switzerland trip! Breakfast was lovely featuring many local and homemade products, the staff went above and beyond in offering assistance including free shuttle service to the train station, and the excellent basement spa was a welcome surprise. We'll absolutely be returning - even just to visit the friendly blacknose sheep!
