This is the modern version of the hospice over the road. Families are warmly welcomed at this hotel, with 30 rooms, a cafe-restaurant and shop, plus a wonderful restaurant terrace looking out on the Col du Grand St Bernard and Italian Alps beyond. Expect some comforts here, but it's only open in summer.

Property description


Located at 2,500 metres above sea level on the Great Saint Bernard Pass, the family-run Auberge de l’Hospice is just steps away from the Saint Bernard Dogs Foundation and directly opposite the Hospice of Saint Bernard.

The restaurant serves Swiss specialities such as fondue, as well as creative dishes made from traditional local foods, along with a wide range of local wines. You can also enjoy your meals out on the terrace, which offers views of a mountain lake and the Italian Alps.

Newly-furnished in 2015, the rooms at the Auberge are fitted with soft colours and natural materials, and feature a work desk and a private bathroom.

A local-history museum is located on the top floor. The Auberge also offers a shop where you can buy souvenirs of the St. Bernard Pass and the St. Bernard dogs, Swiss chocolate, and a wide range of handicrafts, food and beverages produced in European monasteries. Free parking is available on site.

The St. Bernard Pass is located on the Via Francigena pilgrim road. The Col du St-Bernard Bus Stop is right outside the Auberge, providing connections to Martigny in Switzerland and to Aosta in Italy. The Swiss-Italian border is just 200 metres away.

The Auberge de l'Hospice is only open from June to mid-October.
