  1. I went to Zermatt last year and stayed at hotel CERVO Zermatt, and it was very nice experience! The hotel is not very close to the city centre, but provides convenient path to bring guests there. The food and spa were fantastic! If you happen to stay there, you should try to have a dinner at there restaurant outdoor, facing the Matterhorn. It was unforgettably AMAZING!!!

  2. We love this article! Zermatt is gorgeous and we highly recommend it, the luxury is exquisite. We would also recommend you to look at Megève and Courchevel.

  3. I really love Zermatt, it is absolutely my favourite destination! I went there in summer and the hiking was simply amazing because of the breath-taling nature. Totally recommend visiting it in summer months, not only winter!
