ANIFOR, THE HOTEL SCHOOL AT 1670 METRES HIGH, IN THE HEART OF THE VALAIS
An ephemeral campus in Val d’Anniviers, Valais, during low and off-season periods
At the end of the summer, when temperatures start to drop, the village of Zinal becomes a place dedicated to ANIFOR students, for 8 weeks of theoretical and practical training.
The classrooms, fully equipped with the necessary audio-visual material, are located in Hotel Europe, facing an impressing alpine landscape.
The practical workshops take place at the Concierge desk, in the Spa, Bar or on the floors of our training hotels.
The hotels of the five 4000 S.A. : The training hotels of the Anifor Hospitality School
Hôtel de la Pointe, Le Besso, and Hôtel Europe are privileged places for our participants to study. They are made available to ANIFOR students throughout their theoretical and practical training.
The three hotels are very valuable partners in delivering a unique apprenticeship that will serve students well once they enter the job market.
They operate as a small hotel group each with their own unique characteristics allowing them to offer a wide range of practice opportunities to students.
An impressive collection of 95 rooms, 262 beds, 1 Spa, bars and restaurants are at the disposal of our students to finesse their specialized skills and become experts in concierge services, housekeeping or at the Bar.
Students have the opportunity to deal with “real” customers as Hôtel de la Pointe continues to welcome its regular customers during the training period.
