In the glamorous swiss ski resort of Zermatt it's all about the mountains. Whether people climb them, ski down them or simply gaze at them. The majestic Matterhorn, Europe's most recognizable peak is the centerpiece of life in this car-free village. Our pick is the hip Cervo Mountain Boutique Resort, perfectly located, directly at the end of the slopes so that guest's can ski right up to the entrance, and only 10 minutes by foot to the village center. When you enter the Cervo, there's not a revolving door in sight. No, to enter you take the small almost private entrance - appropriate to a homely chic chalet, which has been family-owned for generations. Once inside, there's a simple table, a telephone, and a warm welcoming smile. In fact you feel much more than welcome. You feel at home. Feeling good is the name of the game in cervo's different rooms, suites and chalets with their alpine flair mixed with stylish modern design.
