The Olden is what it is today to a good part because of her, Hedi Donizetti, whom many of our readers will remember. She knew them all, the stars who frequented Gstaad. And she was not only their host but occasionally their duet partner. In July she celebrated her 90th birthday.
I remember the day well. It was not long after we had arrived in Gstaad. My husband was at home with the children and I was travelling on a business trip. We were talking on a decidedly dodgy Skype connection.
