A Hotel without Walls in Switzerland: The Difficult Life of a Butler!

96

Imagine having to make a bed with strong winds coming at you; not an easy task. But that is the normal daily life of over 20 butlers working for Zero Real Estates who have to cater to the needs of clients staying in a room… in the middle of vineyards, mountainsides or near lakes.

The Modern Day Butlers

As a guest, the experience in a room with no walls and no ceiling, placed in the middle of nature, must be strange, exciting and sometimes complicated (What if it rains?). But imagine being the butler who has to carry trays through fields and make sure everything is in place in “the room” and stays in place.
The Modern Day Butlers
It’s a largely unknown fact that butlers today are even more in demands than they used to in the days of nobles in their manors and castles. But as you can imagine from this hotel job, taking care of clients in a fully natural setting, can be quite challenging but also very exciting. The truth is, there are more demands for butlers today but there is also an increase in people wanting to become one. It is a job with a high level of responsibility that places you in charge of guests (in this case) or a family. If you think this could be for you, here is where you can find jobs.

A Hotel without Walls… but with a Butler for Every Room

There are 20 butlers working with Zero Real Estates to cater to guests needs in their natural habitat room. Since there are no walls, they can be positioned anywhere in nature so that guests can enjoy the view of mountains, lake or any other landscape. That means the butler needs to adapt to the environment he/she is working on. Sometimes, they find themselves having to climb 400 steps just to walk from the kitchen to the guests’ room or cross a field, carrying a tray with coffee or tea.

These hotels are located in seven locations throughout Switzerland. The scenery varies from vineyards to scenic mountains. What the guests pay for is a platform, a bed, two side tables, and two lamps, plus the service of a private butler, who provides them with the meals and informs them on what to do and see nearby while catering to all their other needs.

If you are looking for a completely different experience, as a guest or as a butler, the hotels of Zero Real Estate might be what you need…
