Schweizerhof Zermatt – Switzerland
Designed in an authentic alpine chalet style, Schweizerhof Zermatt is a historic landmark in the legendary Swiss ski resort, situated in the heart of the Alps, at the foot of the Matterhorn, five minutes walking distance to the Gornergrat Bahn.
Designed by Kristian Gavoille & Valérie Garcia, specialists in new nomadic lifestyles, all the rooms and suites have deliberately alpine, warm and audacious style.
Soft rugs, fire, red and wood are everywhere keeping the right mountain life feeling, together with sophisticated luxury and cool details.
Open spaces and relaxed mood encourage to share and explore, making this wonderful retreat the right one for friends, families and couples, as well as solo travellers and corporate team building events.
Behind the doors of the smoking-room “Le Fumoir”, two large cigar cellars propose a high-end selection in a deliberately modern dandy atmosphere, completed by soft light atmosphere and an elegant billiard table, a perfect match with every single details.
Old and divine rocking chairs, immensely comfortable, will allow you to browse the collection of beautiful, leather-bound books, rife around the room.
At the hour when the day slips away, the finest wines emerge from the vinothèque and the digestifs become malicious: Grappa di Chardonnay, Cognac and wine glasses of Grand Cru.

From a small mountain village to a world-class resort: this evolution can be experienced step-by-step in Zermatt.
Wandering through the village, in the museum, strolling, you’ll see that something is always going on: events, festivals, happenings.
Since the mid-19th century, Zermatt has starred among Switzerland’s glitziest resorts.
British climber Edward Whymper reached the Matterhorn’s summit in 1865 and plucky souls have come here ever since to climb: Theodore Roosevelt climbed the Matterhorn in 1881 and a 20-year-old Winston Churchill scaled Monte Rosa (4634m) in 1894.
Today skiers cruise along well-kept pistes, spellbound by the scenery, while style-conscious darlings flash designer threads in the town’s swish lounge bars.
But all are smitten with the Matterhorn, an unfathomable monolith you can’t quite stop looking at.
