Coeur des Alpes
Coeur des Alpes is a fabulous little bed and breakfast hotel close to the Klein Matterhorn lift, although it’s not one of the most central hotels in Zermatt, it does mean the ski area is that much closer – and that’s what you’re here for, right? Despite outward appearances, accommodation here is stylish, warm and cosy; service is impeccable, and the hosts offer one of the best mountain breakfasts we’ve ever indulged in.
If you can get a room with a view of the Matterhorn, do; there’s nothing quite like waking up to spectacular scenery every morning. Wrapping things up is a fitness centre – visible through a glass floor in the lobby. A cool, quirky touch if ever we saw one.
