Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Zermatt

Le Gitan
Meat is the thing at Le Gitan, where the mouthwatering menu would satisfy even the most bloodthirsty carnivore.
Chesa Valese
What Chesa Valese lacks in size it certainly makes up for in style, with a beautiful basement setting that offers a sauna, steam room, whirlpool and solarium.
Testa Grigia
Head for heights? Head, er, head to Testa Grigia; at 3,480-metres you'll need a stomach to appreciate its hearty Italian fare and comfortable accommodations.
Fluhalp
Chalet chic is all the rage, and it's no more evident than at Fluhalp; with one of the best terraces in Zermatt, there's no better place to enjoy a sundowner.
Gandegghutte
Italian-inspired mountain food is the name of the game at Gandegghutte; highly recommended is the spag-bol.
Schneewittchen
Found beneath Papperla, Schneewittchen is all about low ceilings and pumping dance music; the Swiss crowd can't get enough.
Hotel Post
Young skiers flock to The Hotel Post for strong drinks and good jazz; a simple formula that's cemented its position on Zermatt's apres-ski scene.
The Whymper-Stube
Named after a team of extremely brave climbers, The Whymper-Stube offers hearty food in warm, intimate surroundings.
Romantik Hotel Julen
As is suggested by its name, Romantik Hotel Julen has romantic, rustic interiors that would melt the heart of even the most stone-hearted skier.
Hotel Sonne
The Hotel Sonne is worth the steep slog up to its entrance; inside are fabulous four-star interiors and a real family-run vibe.
Hotel Alex
The Hotel Alex has all the makings of an Hg2 favourite, with an in-house swimming pool and tennis courts; the rooms aren't half bad, either. In fact, they're rather lovely.
