Hotel Relais Bayard

= Family business

In March 2000 Markus Bayard acquired the well-known "Hotel-Restaurant Millius", located directly on the cantonal road between Agarn and Susten. With the intention to buy, the aim was to transform the existing hotel and restaurant complex into a family business with a personal touch and commitment. This initially required a new, modern operating and marketing concept, such as a suitable name to match the purpose and objective. Because without a name or company logo, no promising market appearance is possible. With the newly chosen logo


 „Relais Bayard“ , The Place To Stop,


the family business is now to be marketed regionally, nationally and internationally.


The farm is run by Manuela Bayard with the support of the family.
