Recently, I had the opportunity to spend a week in Geneva, Switzerland. Thanks to an amazing online booking deal, my travel companion and I were able to stay at the elegant and historic Hotel Les Armures. This boutique hotel, housed in a 13th century building overlooking Geneva’s Saint Pierre Cathedral, has graciously hosted former Presidents and A-List celebrities. Adding my name to their guest list was unexpected and fun!
Ordinarily, I wouldn’t get too jazzed about a continental breakfast, but Hotel Les Armures is no ordinary hotel! Among other delicacies, breakfast featured little glass pots of Swiss yogurt, wafer thin slices of buendnerfleisch (air dried, pressed beef), Gruyère and Emmentaler cheeses, and the fresh European breads with which I have long since fallen in love.
After such fancy morning feasts, we were well energized to spend long days exploring Geneva on foot, by water taxi, and by train. We have gathered plenty of photos, recipes, and stories to share with you over the next few days. Enjoy!
