Beat is a former student of the Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne. He began his career in Geneva and then later acquired, with a partner, his own establishment near Lausanne. Marie-Madeleine chose teaching, deepened her knowledge of mathematics at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, and a few years later she returned to the University of Lausanne, where she obtained her HEC degree. After a busy business, they decided to join their energy and work together in the smallest existing hotel structure: a guest house. After extensive renovations, the Mas Conil opened at Easter 2003. Since then, guests are welcome, some have become friends, and many come back. Beat takes care of the cooking, and the time spent around the table is pleasant, greedy and friendly. Marie-Madeleine looks after the rooms and the decoration, and appreciates the moments spent in her kitchen garden. A new life that has been going on for over 17 years now and without any regrets.
