A Swiss sojourn wouldn’t be the same without gorging on a plate, or five, of Raclette. The fairytale-esc Le Château de Villa, poking from the mountainside in Sierre, takes diners’ taste buds on a journey through the Alpine fields where the best Raclette originates. The house special, Valaisanne plate, consists of five different cheeses from surrounding towns, all offering subtly different flavours. A map showing their locations is given to each diner before a moustachioed waiter heats the glowing wheels of cheeses until bubbling point, then scrapes the gooey top onto your plate. Wine is a must: try locally made La Petite Arvine - a gentle white perfect for Raclette indulgence. Afterwards, duck into the stunning wine cellar where local experts guide you through Switzerland's underestimated selection. Visit www.chateaudevilla.ch for more details.
