Summer and Winter are both fabulous times to visit the country. Winter is wonderful not only if you want to ski, but there are lots of other activities to participate in. If there are non-skiers in the group you will still find a wonderful selection of things to do such as hiking, swimming, sledding, shopping, wellness and of course just enjoying the incredible scenery. But if you are an avid skier, the skiing in Switzerland is both stylish and glamorous. It is excellent for all levels of skiers from beginners, intermediates, advanced and expert ski levels.
Summer is stunningly beautiful and the mountains are covered by a profusion of wild flowers. There is a completely different atmosphere in the summer. This is when you will see Switzerland at its best and most beautiful with its green meadows, cows, waterfalls, lakes and breathtaking scenery. It is generally quieter in summer and it is the best time to follow the call in your heart and head back to nature.
We offer four exceptional locations for a Switzerland Chalet including chalets in Zermatt, chalets in Klosters, chalets in Saas Fee and chalets in Verbier. We believe these four resorts are the finest of all the resorts in Switzerland.
Zermatt is a beautiful town dominated by the incredible Matterhorn and surrounded by 38 peaks that soar over 4000 meters into the sky. Zermatt together with Saas Fee which is situated in the adjacent valley are the only two towns in Switzerland that are completely car free. Zermatt also has the huge benefit of having the highest skiing area in Europe and therefore guaranteed snow. When the snow has melted in other resorts in Europe, there will still be snow in Zermatt. The ski area is linked with Italy and includes the areas of Cervinia and Valtourneche. Access to the Italian ski area is via the Plateau Rosa Glacier. This is one of the only places in the world where you can have lunch in Italy and dinner in Switzerland. The whole ski area comprises of 238 kilometres of skiing.
Zermatt is also one of the few places in the world where you can ski in the summer. If you decide to ski at this time of the year you are likely to share a lift with an Olympic champion as Zermatt is where all the world’s top skiers train when the snow has melted elsewhere. But the summer in Zermatt has a lot more to offer then just skiing. It is stunningly beautiful in the summer. As the snow and ice melt, lakes, waterfalls, rivers and an abundance of wild mountain flowers are quickly revealed below the surface. There is incredible hiking, climbing, mountain biking, adventure sports of all kinds, golf, swimming, fishing and climbing culture to explore. The mountain restaurants in Zermatt are incredible and are truly the best in the world. This together with beautiful shops and stunning views when hiking and climbing make it a very special place indeed.
Klosters is a chic and luxurious resort that is often favoured by the Royal families around Europe. It is small and sophisticated and very romantic. The area has a reputation for offering excellent untouched pistes suited to advanced powder seekers, beginners and children alike. In addition, Klosters also offers 700 km of summer trails and the Madrisa adventure park. The range of activities both in summer and winter is astonishing and in addition there are plenty of good restaurants including the famous Michelin star Walliserhof. There are also some amazing restaurants tucked away above the village, which will pick you up in 4×4 vehicles and send you home again on a sledge in the moonlight.
Saas Fee is located in the adjacent valley to Zermatt and is really close as the crow flies. To travel there from Zermatt however takes roughly an hour. Saas Fee is like a mini Zermatt without the Matterhorn. It is a bit smaller, extremely beautiful and it is also car free. It is equally beautiful and wonderful as Zermatt and also offers really good value.
Verbier is located within Switzerland’s largest ski region also known as the Four Valleys. If offers excellent skiing for beginners and intermediate skiers and there are some excellent challenging runs for expert skiers. Verbier is also one of the best resorts in the Alps for off-piste skiing. The village itself is extremely pretty and full of wonderful restaurants, bars, boutiques and designer jewellery shops. Verbier is without a doubt one of the trendiest resorts in Europe.
