Tucked away in the south of Switzerland you will find Zermatt, surrounded by astonishing mountain vistas – such as the Matterhorn – and plenty of high altitude skiing. There is no shortage of choice in luxury accommodation in and around Zermatt. Notably, the Mont Cervin Palace, situated in the centre of the village, has an international reputation for excellence and is within short walking distance to local shops and some of the finest skiing Europe has to offer.

Courchevel 1850, France
Within Les Trois Vallées, situated in south-east of France and north of Marseille, Courchevel 1850 is, for many people, the last word in luxury skiing. It can boast of being part of the largest interconnected ski area in the world, as well as being home to no less than four Michelin restaurants with two stars and three with one star. You can soak up the genuine alpine dining experience at La Table Du Kilimandjaro while sampling the notoriously exquisite wine collection.

As well as being the most fashionable ski resort in Italy, Cortina has breath-taking views of the Dolomite mountains and plenty more to offer than simply adrenaline on the pistes. LP 26 Prosciutteria is one of the resort’s busiest restaurants due to the popularity of its many different types of prosciutto (cured ham) which is said by many to be unparalleled. Luxury accommodation is similarly well catered for, with the Cristallo Hotel Spa & Golf a great base from which to enjoy everything the area has to offer.
