Luxury in Gstaad: The Grande Dame of the Alps
The Gstaad-Saanenland wellness holiday region in the Bernese Oberland is much favoured by the cream of European society who appreciates the understated elegance of this resort for their luxury winter holidays. The skiing is good, but the resort is about more than skiing: the Saanen airport is nearby and Gstaad has developed the shortest and most exquisite shopping street in Switzerland. The town has superb hotels, spas, gourmet restaurants and some of the most exclusive luxury catered chalets. The main shopping street of Gstaad is car-free and the whole resort is care-free! Leo Trippi offers luxury catered chalets for rent as well as luxury catered apartments, and self-catered luxury chalets and apartments. The area offers an unpretentious and relaxed atmosphere with some of the more refined hang-outs and a discreet culture of indulging in life's pleasures.
The skiing offers some good long runs and beginners as well as cross-country skiers will also feel quite at home. The ski domain is divided into four main areas that are not really linked together, so most people choose one mountain and stick to it for the day. Les Diablerets, with its glacier skiing, is nearby. The Saanenland ski and hiking arena with 57 transport facilities, called the Gstaad Mountain Rides, is accessible from several villages by link transport facilities. Other areas covered by the same lift pass include Rougemont, Saanen and Gsteig. The idyllic Lake Lauenen and the historic and peaceful mountain villages nearby contribute to diverse luxury winter holidays. Gstaad guarantees an unsurpassed experience due to its authentic nature, unlimited choice of leisure and wellness activities, healthy mountain atmosphere and international top events.
