Cervo Mountain Boutique ResortThis family-run micro-village in Valais offers 36 rooms across six separate chalets. Huddled together on a hill above the popular ski resort of Zermatt, the buildings reference the area’s traditional architecture, from the timber frames to the hunting-themed decor.
Have dinner on the hotel’s terrace in the summer, when clear skies afford a picture-perfect view of the Matterhorn. The modern menu pulls inspiration from traditional Swiss cuisine.
All the rooms have balconies or terraces to make the most of the superlative views. Rent a whole chalet to accommodate up to 10 people. These come with separate living and dining rooms, and wellness areas (sauna, massage room) as well as open fireplaces.

Soak in the Snow at Cervo Resort
Located at the base of Zermatt’s Sunnegga run (just downhill from the Veuve Clicquot Champagne Bar), Cervo offers easy access to some of the best skiing in Europe. Owner Daniel Ferdinand Lauber translated his passion for hunting into a hotel that embraces the popular design trend of taxidermy, antlers, and plaid patterns. Their newest suites offer steam rooms and outdoor Jacuzzis that offer views of the Matterhorn. House-made charcuterie, truffle fries, mulled wine, and live music make Cervo’s patio a popular post-ski hangout. From $503. 41/(0) 27-968-1212. This appeared in the November/December 2012 issue.
