Gstaad is often perceived to be the chosen destination for the rich and famous but you’d be overlooking the fantastic skiing and spectacular scenery when placing it in this one-dimensional box. Sure, it does seem to be the Capri of the mountains with photographic reminders of its famous 1960’s residents at every turn, but with over 155 miles of ski terrain you can see why it remains popular to this day. Pottering about in the traditional Swiss village, the scenery is one of snow-covered houses and alpine sophistication at its best. The ski terrain is suited to any level from beginner to advanced, the snow is guaranteed what with Gstaad having the only glacier ski region in the Bernese Oberland and the food is simply divine. All within a 2 hour journey from Geneva. Perfection.
LE GRAND BELLEVUE
Following an exciting new refurbishment in 2013, Le Grand Bellevue is now a luxury 5* hotel in the middle of extensive parkland at the entrance of Gstaad. With an Asian influenced 3,000 sqm spa (including Himalayan salt room, ice cave, Finnish sauna), indoor pool and treatment rooms you can certainly relax here after a long day’s skiing. With a Michelin starred restaurant Leonard’s, the tree-flanked wooden cottage Le Petit Chalet (the tiny fondue hut at the end of the drive) and a sushi bar, you also won’t be bored working your way through the menus. Le Grand Bellevue bar is as quirky as it is cool. You can also enjoy afternoon tea in the lounge.
