Zermatt is a magical village set 1620m high in the Swiss Alps, neighbouring Cervinia on the border of Italy. All year round visitors to this car free alpine ski resort can fully enjoy the exhilaration of the 360km of pristine pistes, the beauty and tranquillity of the vistas and the pure fresh alpine air. 

With all the comforts a well serviced ski resort should offer, Zermatt also exudes a traditional spellbinding charm like no other. You can escape in a world of wonder on a horse drawn carriage, visit fascinating museums, browse the multitude of watch and jewellery shops, take lunch in a Michelin star restaurant or indeed spend your days on the pistes enjoying the breath-taking vistas at 3883m and relaxing in the gourmet mountain restaurants for coffee, lunch and glühwein.. finishing off in one of the Après Ski bars before taking yourself back to your Ski Lodge.
