It's easy to relax and enjoy Albinen as soon as you arrive.
Tell us what you'd like and we'll deliver a breakfast basket to your apartment, prepare a picnic lunch for your outing or deliver cocktails to the terrace of your apartment. Order a home-cooked meal and it will be ready in your refrigerator when you get back from your hike in the mountains. Then again, maybe you would rather treat yourself to a tasty meal at a local inn.

Historic restaurant in the heart of the village
This award-winning Valaisan restaurant in a historic building from 1636 surprises its patrons daily with a seasonal 4-course-dinner made from local products—mostly from their own gardens and always with a vegan option; very child friendly.
The inn's offerings, which also include a catering service and herb walks are a perfect fit for ALBIJOU's holistic approach: appreciation as a chance for sustainable tourism.
A spacious and tastefully furnished 3-room apartment above the restaurant is available as a bed & breakfast option.
bistro AUF DER MAUR
Local specialties, great view
Homemade seasonal specialties like ice cream, cakes, soups, herbal ice tea are available on summer and fall afternoons in the second half of the week. The large terrace by the village entrance offers an unsurpassed view of the Rhone Valley. The bistro also sells herbal products and pottery as well as the books of the local school for medicinal herbs at Seminar-Hotel Rhodania.
The people who run the bistro also manage the Seminar-Hotel Rhodania and organize the Musik Akzente Albinen-concert series.
Winter garden with panoramic view
Sunnublick has some guest parking on the main road. From the spacious winter garden (large enough for groups up to 30 people) and from the terrace one has a view over the old village center to the valley and the mountains beyond. The kitchen offers Valaisan and Swiss specialties as well as seasonal dishes and their own wine.
Sunnnublick also rents five cozy and comfortable rooms. On the same floor there is a living room with a TV and a fully equipped kitchen. Alternately, the entire floor can be rented as an apartment.
