Villa in Rougemont
Regent Retreat
Gaze out floor-to-ceiling windows, following tree-lined foothills up to the rocky peaks of the Alps at this lodge-style apartment in Rougemont. Rejuvenate from a long day of skiing in the hot tub on the terrace. Then, join the group inside for an incredible dinner set alongside the dining area’s mountain view. After, head to Gstaad for a drink and maybe a late-night snack at Saanen Pub. The traditional Swiss chalet gets a modern update thanks to stainless steel appliances, trendy furnishings, and an open-concept layout. In the warmer months, the alfresco set on the terrace is an excellent spot for lunch, and when the sliding doors are open, the hosting space gets a spacious bump. When it’s cold, throw a few logs on the fire before you settle into the plush sofa for family movie night. Feel free to expand your dinner guest list, there’s parking for 4 on-site, seating for 8, and extra space at the kitchen’s breakfast bar. Next to the chalet, one of Rougemont’s finest hotels offers complimentary access to their spa, swimming pool, and gym, so you won’t have to worry about abandoning your fitness routine. And, each bedroom comes with a lavish ensuite and access to an outdoor space. Within a few minute’s drive, you’ll have access to world-class skiing at Chemin des Palettes, La Videmanette, Rellerligrat, and Rinderberg. When you’re not flying down a mountain, take some time to learn a little about the area at Museum der Landschaft Saanen. Then, treat yourself dinner at Hotel du Rougemont, followed by a cocktail or two at their rustic bar and cigar lounge. Copyright © Luxury Retreats. All rights reserved.

All about Swiss Alps

Planning a Swiss Alps vacation? We’re here to help!

It’s the classic chocolate-box scene: Snowy peaks, glistening lakes and green valleys stretching as far as the eye can see. In the soaring Swiss Alps, the air is clear, the views are invigorating and the thrills to be had are many. Of course, there is skiing. Some of the world’s best ski resorts, such as Verbier, Gstaad, and Zermatt, are here, offering endless runs of pure-white powder snow, in some cases even in early summer; you can swoosh your way down the Fee Glacier when most of the snow has melted in resorts at lower altitudes. But skiing or snowboarding are not your only options. There is ice-skating, tobogganing, hiking and biking, plus family-friendly attractions, and a slower pace of life watching the world go by aboard one of the area’s vintage mountain railways.

Time for action

The Alps were actually a summer playground long before they became a winter one, and if you pay a visit outside of the snowy season you’ll soon see why. Hiking is a big deal in this mountainous land, and La Reserve du Haut Val de Bagnes, close to Verbier and Switzerland’s second-largest nature reserve, is a very decent place to strike out on foot. Created in 1968, the reserve is crisscrossed with hundreds of miles of hiking trails, and one for nature-lovers is the six-hour Chamois Trail, where you’ll have a good chance of spotting sure-footed chamois goats and ibexes, plus ridiculously cute furry marmots.

If wheels are more your thing, then you might like to know that from June to September you can use the network of cable-cars and ski lifts in the Four Valleys area around Verbier to access 120 miles of marked mountain biking tracks. There are circuits for beginners as well as experienced bikers, with ‘easy rider’ and ‘pro rider’ versions of most tours, and you’ll find a few hire centers in Verbier where you can pick up a trusty steed. Alternatively, your Luxury Retreats concierge can organize bike rental ahead of time.

Take the train

All the walking, wheeling and hanging around over precipitous gorges worn you out? Then how about a ride on that most civilized form of transport, the train? The Gornergrat Bahn was the world’s first fully electrified cog railway (it opened in 1898) and is the highest open-air cog railway in Europe. It starts its journey in Zermatt and takes 33 minutes to reach the summit of the Gornergrat – a vertical climb of nearly 5,000 feet. The line leads over dramatic bridges and through tunnels, past forests, mountain lakes and the magnificent Matterhorn towering over it all. At the top, you’ll find an astronomical observatory, a large sun terrace and a restaurant serving up steaming cups of hot chocolate.

Family fun

For Elsa and Anna fans the Glacier Palace, located near Zermatt between the Klein Matterhorn and Breithorn peaks, is a must. A lift descends 50 feet below the surface of the glacier into a world any Frozen princess would be proud to rule. Corridors and halls peopled with marmots, wolves, eagles, and dragons are carved out of the iridescent blue ice and there’s an ice slide for young visitors too.

Toboggan runs are another feature of the area, and the biggest and best is in Verbier. At 6 miles, it’s the longest in western Switzerland, winding its way from the cable-car stop at Savoleyres down to La Tzoumaz. The route is gentle enough for kids to ride by themselves, but we’re pretty sure you’ll want to jump on as well.


Experience the luxury of our Swiss homes

So you want to ski the Swiss Alps, hike their many trails, career down the slopes on a bike or perhaps just ascend their peaks on a delightful old railway? However you get your mountain kicks, you’ll need a cozy vacation home to return to at the end of a busy day, and we’ve lined up a selection of chalets that are just the ticket.

Homes in Zermatt

The climbing and winter sports capital of the Valais region, Zermatt sits below the mighty monolith that is the Matterhorn, giving the town picture-postcard views from every angle. There are no cars allowed in the resort, so once there you’ll be surrounded by an appealing old-world charm. Those seeking an intimate retreat for two will find apartments within walking distance of the many dining and nightlife options of the town as well as romantic wood-burning fireplaces and terraces with Matterhorn views. At the other end of the scale, our Zermatt rentals include chalets to sleep up to 20, some with indoor pool and spa facilities.

Homes in Verbier

Verbier is the main resort in Switzerland’s largest ski area, the Four Valleys. It has sunshine, gorgeous scenery, exciting terrain and a lively nightlife, making it ideal for those looking to let loose on vacation. Our Verbier chalet rentals will help you make the most of your time in the Swiss Alps, whether you want to enjoy winter’s après ski, or the summer scene. Come with a big group of friends to enjoy a chalet sleeping up to 20, with indoor swimming pools, an indoor and outdoor hot tub, two saunas, two hammams and two impressive wine caves—that’s the after-party sorted, then.

Homes in Saas Fee

Family-friendly Saas Fee is a traditional mountain village of narrow streets lined with charming old chalets, where our Saas Fee chalet rentals will allow you to feel right at home, whatever the time of year. We have vacation homes perfect for that extended family celebration, with panoramic views, comfortable living areas and beautifully appointed kitchens designed for creating hearty mountain feasts.
