Cervo is contemporary chic personified. Set high above the glamorous town of Zermatt, it is right by the Rothorn piste for an easy run home at the end of the day. Just relax and enjoy the luxurious private spa facilities, the excellent food and unbeatable views of the iconic Matterhorn.

Leave your preconceptions about ski holidays behind as you zoom up in the private lift that takes you to your mountain retreat. The Chalet Cervo concept is about living in one of their luxury ski chalet buildings all of which have individual rooms, clustered around a central hub containing the reception, a bar and lounge, and the highly regarded restaurant.

With a private minibus shuttling back and forth, and a team of housekeepers and helpful concierges on hand, the Cervo is a wonderful boutique hotel. Perhaps it is the altitude. That feeling of being on the top of the world, breathing pure, crisp mountain air. Whatever it is, Chalet Cervo feels like a revelation.

After an exhilarating day out on Zermatt’s slopes, head for the terrace with a refreshing drink and watch the sunset spreading across the peaks. Before dinner you might like to spend some leisurely time in the spa area, complete with sauna, sanarium, outdoor whirlpool and relaxation area.

Or request a massage, a facial or other beauty treatments to make it a really pampering experience. Let the masseur soothe the aches and pains of the day away, as you gaze out through the snow-laden pine trees to the Matterhorn in the distance.

The Cervo chalet experience is refreshingly simple. The minibar has coffee, tea and mineral water, and the Gault Millau listed restaurant as well as a traditional Swiss alpine restaurant is a short stroll away. A team of attentive staff is on hand to look after you and make any arrangements you require. And perhaps the most unusual aspect of Chalet Cervo is that pets are welcome to stay too. So even Fido can have a great time in the mountains.
