Switzerland - Valais (Chapter)
This is the Valais chapter from Lonely Planet’s Switzerland guidebook.
Valais is a natural beauty. Her tale is of rags to riches, of changing seasons and celebrities, of an outdoors so fantastic it’s always fashionable. Wedged in a remote corner of southern Switzerland, this is where farmers were so poor they didn’t have two francs to rub together a century ago and where luminaries flock today to sip champagne cocktails in posh Verbier nightclubs.
