Vrony Cotting-Julen is named as GaultMillau's "Host of the Year" 2022


GaultMillau's "Host of the Year" serves in a Zermatt ski lodge! It's a rather sophisticated "lodge". "Chez Vrony" is synonymous with outstanding Zermatt gastronomy on the slopes. The business has been run by Vrony Cotting-Julen over many years, with the support of her husband Max. She epitomises warmth and professionalism, providing an oasis of calm despite the daily rush to service. The gastro guide has also awarded Vrony Cotting-Julen 14 points.
