Belvedere students celebrating at Sports Day

Belvedere sits at the heart of the Aiglon campus, but it's not the location that defines us, it’s the people. Our motto ‘Honesty, Family, Responsibility’ means a Belvedere man is someone who strives to become the best version of himself.

Welcome to Belvedere

Belvedere is so much more than just a boarding house; we are a family within a home. Belvederians pride themselves on being the friendliest on campus, and it shows the moment that you walk in our door. Visit us any given week to regularly see boys across year groups spending time with each other — whether we're laughing in the corridors, studying together, kicking a football, playing ping pong in our free time or any other number of informal occasions.

We are an eclectic mix within our home. We have some of Aiglon’s finest scholars, best ski racers, lead artists, top footballers, tennis players and even chefs. But at our heart, what unites us are not the activities that we commit to, but rather the day-to-day kindnesses and laughter that blends us together as a cohesive group.

We genuinely hope that you, too, might come to visit us in the 'Big B'; we would love to welcome you to our family!

House History

Archived Image of Belvedere

Looking over the lower campus and towards the Rhône Valley, the image of Belvedere is often a visitor's first impression of Aiglon. It has been accommodating senior boys since 1959, when it was purchased by the school to house its growing student body. Formerly the Hotel Belvedere, it has retained its name to this day. But following the opening of a ‘new’ Belvedere in 2022, the original building is being recommissioned to provide further teaching and learning spaces. The Belvedere boys now enjoy a beautiful new construction on upper campus behind Alpina.Learn more on the virtual tour
