Located adjacent to Audemars Piguet’s factory in Le Brassus, the Hôtel des Horlogers — which dates back to 1857 and has been owned by AP since 2003 — is now open for business.
Situated on the hillside, in the famous Vallée de Joux watchmaking region, the picturesque views of the Swiss countryside are the same as what watchmakers in the region have long enjoyed.
Designed by Bjarke Ingels the hotel features five tiered levels with 50 luxurious rooms that are decorated with modern wood and stone surfaces. The 4-star hotel has a spa, bar, meeting spaces, and two locally-focused restaurants led by Michelin-starred Chef Emmanuel Renaut.
Like Audemars Piguet watches, the rooms are very expensive, with current rates starting at $840 per night. With the newly renovated factory and museum next located adjacent to the hotel, and the Vallée de Joux and its rich history all around, the type of collectors who buy AP watches will surely appreciate the location, convenience, and overall experience — even at such a steep rate. Geneva’s also only about an hour away by car.
