La Gouille ? What is that funny name ?

Opened in 1905 as the pension du Lac Bleu (Blue Lake), the hotel is located between Arolla and Evolène in val d'Hérens (Wallis). The hotel-bar is now affectionately called 'La Gouille'. A new young team, already managing the Arolla campsite a few kilometers away, has taken over management since November 2018.
