Big Bale Hotel, Switzerland

Big Bale Hotel, Switzerland

Lisa and Louis have worked hard to build a contemporary home and business that not only minimises the environmental impact in its construction but will also have little impact during its lifetime of potentially centuries. Above (centre) is the dinning room with sections of the walls displaying the big bale load bearing structure of the building. The chairs are made from salvaged wine barrels. Pictured right is a taste of the style of the building. It's a mixture of rustic timbers with high specification luxury demonstrating beautifully that there is no need to suppose a naturally built home is a step backwards in comfort. In fact it's quite the opposite. Breakfast at Maya is served with homemade jams and compote. A traditional jam of the region is 'Compote de Rhubarbe Sauvage' [Wild Rhubarb Compote].
