The Quaint Town of Zermatt
Zermatt is famed as a mountaineering and ski resort of the Swiss Alps. The picturesque mountain village is located at the foot of the world-famous Matterhorn. This holiday resort on the Italian border lures guests from around the world to the Swiss Alps every year. Zermatt is a shrine for winter sports enthusiasts and active holidaymakers boasting 38 peaks over 4,000 meters. And still, this car-free resort has retained its original Valais mountain village character and offers a combination of modern holiday location and traditional Alpine atmosphere.

Many of our guests love the skiing opportunities in Zermatt but are wary of the costs of living in Switzerland.

Five star skiing in Cervinia for a fraction of the price it would cost to stay in Zermatt. We loved the fact that you were able to visit Zermatt by skiing over the mountain. The owners were happy to find us accommodation for a night in Switzerland. Amazing experience! We will surely return!
