How do I submit my own products to be carried by your store?
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org introducing yourself and your products. I will contact you if your products fit Vachement Suisse's concept and I think we could form an eventual business relationship.

How the heck did a girl from Kansas City end up in Champex?
True story: as a little girl, I told anyone who would listen that I would live in the Swiss Alps when I grew up and was also known to be somewhat obsessed with cows. As fate would have it, after studying French and living in Paris for a year, I met my husband at a bar in Kansas City and three years later moved to Geneva with him. We came back to his lovely hometown of Champex to raise a family and to continue in the tradition of his parents and grandparents as hotelier and restaurant owners. We hope you will visit our other establishments, the Hotel Mont Lac and Mimi's Lounge.
