Luxury Ski Holidays in Breuil-Cervinia
Three valleys sprawling across the border of two countries, Italy and Switzerland, make Breuil-Cervinia one of the largest ski areas in the Alps. Stretching from Piccolo Cervino (3,883m) to Valtournenche (1,524m), you can ski all day without ever having to ski the same run twice.
This stunning resort provides the perfect combination of beauty and activity for a luxury ski holiday, guaranteeing visitors superb quality snow due to its high altitude in the impressive presence of the famed Matterhorn. An abundance of high-class hotels and Cervinia luxury chalets means that you can enjoy an indulgent and stylish holiday whilst soaking up the dramatic mountain setting.
While Breuil-Cervinia has a peaceful, relaxed atmosphere it is certainly not in short supply of lively bars. In addition, there is also a fantastic collection of restaurants serving many of the mouth-watering Italian dishes we all know and love.
With over 200 km of piste skiing, Breuil-Cervinia is the perfect playground for winter sports enthusiasts of all abilities. You can also ski over the border into Zermatt and enjoy some runs on the glacier before stopping for lunch at one of Zermatt’s famous mountain restaurants. Non-skiers can take to the ice on Cervinia’s natural ice rink, race friends around the ice kart circuit or explore the area on a snowmobile or dog sledding tour. Snowshoeing and paragliding are also popular activities.
3 Chalets & Apartments in Breuil-Cervinia
Chalet La Fenice
What the Press are Saying
"La Fenice translates from Italian as “the Phoenix” — a fitting name for this eye-catching chalet, rescued from dereliction by its new British owners. Built in 1936, it sits alone on a prominent knoll above Cervinia, with Monte Cervino’s southern face towering above it — and offers the kind of luxury that used to be confined to Courchevel, Verbier and Val d’Isère."
Leo Trippi's Highlight
Built using mostly natural materials, this eco-friendly chalet is characterized by large windows overlooking the valley and the high mountains that surround it. It has a delightful spa area with a 12-person Jacuzzi and an impressive living area with panoramic views.
Chalet Blanc & Petit Blanc
Leo Trippi's Highlight
Ideal for large groups, Chalet Blanc and Petit Blanc combines a spacious modern chalet with a connected apartment to provide the utmost flexibility for larger groups.
Luxury Chalets & Apartments in Breuil-Cervinia
Although not the most attractive ski resort in the world, Breuil-Cervinia does boast an impressive setting close to the majestic Matterhorn. The main street is traffic-free with a lively ambiance and there are some traditional-style buildings too. The main part of the village is around 800m long with direct lifts to Plan Maison at the south end of the village.
However, the north end of the village with easy access to the Cretaz chairlift provides a more convenient base for your luxury ski holiday in Breuil-Cervinia.

Catered Chalets in Cervinia

One of these is Chalet La Fenice which boasts six floors of luxury living, a cinema room and spa. Bespoke menus are prepared to guest requirements and where possible all meals are prepared with fresh locally-sourced organic food. This Cervinia luxury chalet also has an extensive wine cellar featuring vintage bottles and little-known local wines.
Skiing in Cervinia
With high, open, sunny, gentle, perfectly groomed slopes, Cervinia ski holidays offer glorious cruising, excellent restaurants and family-friendly attractions. Cervinia's slopes have two main sectors - Plan Maison and Laghi Cime Bianche. From Plan Maison, a chain of chairlifts goes up to the Swiss border at Theodulpass. From Laghi Cime Bianche, a cable car goes up to Testa Grigia, also on the Swiss border. From here you can ski into Switzerland and explore Zermatt's long, gentle glacier slopes.
With a long stretch of nursery slopes next to the village (and a choice of Breuil Cervinia chalets nearby), the resort is convenient for families with children just learning to ski. The blue slopes above Plan Maison are ideal to progress to and plenty of long descents too. Confident intermediates can enjoy a variety of red runs whilst experts can enjoy off-piste skiing with guides or a spot of heli-skiing. Above Plan Maison, there's a good size snow park with some serious kickers and a boardercross course.
Best Cervinia Restaurants
With its variety of restaurants, you can expect to eat well on a ski holiday in Cervinia. On the mountain, it is best to stick to the Italian side if you are looking for affordable dining options. Cervinia's best-known mountain eatery is Chalet Etoile which first opened in 1974. For panoramic views of the Matterhorn, head to Rifugio Teodulo which offers simple soups, pasta dishes and desserts (plus excellent grappa). L'Igloo is located right by the piste and has a cosy interior with a wood-burning stove and delicious grilled meat and pasta dishes.
For something special in resort, Wood blends Swedish, Italian and Asian cuisine into a delicious combination of dishes. La Chandelle at the famous Hermitage hotel is a contemporary restaurant that offers an impressive menu of modern yet unfussy dishes alongside traditional classics and has an extensive wine list too. In the centre of town, Lo Copa Pan serves up pizza, homemade pasta, fondue and steak.
Cervinia Apres Ski
Although Cervinia can be a little quiet during the week, you can still find some lively bars to enjoy a spot of apres-ski at, especially at the weekend. A tempting spot to pause on your final descent is the apres-ski bar at Hotel Principe delle Nevi. In the village opposite the ice rink, Lino’s Bar has a friendly ambiance and a live DJ from 5 pm to 7 pm every Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday. For something a little more upscale, La Champagnerie du Cervin at Hotel Punta Maquignaz serves a selection of cocktails and snacks to enjoy.
