Gstaad

Switzerland

The destination

Long a popular destination for the upper echelons of Swiss society, the village of Gstaad, in south-western Switzerland, is a major ski resort situated at an altitude of 1,050 metres. With old-world wealth and refinement in magical quantities, Gstaad is the perfect destination for an affluent, discerning international clientele who feels just as home in well-appointed, elegant surrounds as they do hurtling down the slopes. 

This is a traditional Swiss village of unrivalled elegance and sophistication, one to which the rich and famous retreat to for its clear alpine air, striking mountain scenery, the glamourous bars, cafés, and upmarket restaurants that line its picturesque streets, and of course, the village’s many casinos where old and new wealth mingle and try their luck at the tables.

With 250km of fantastic pistes that would best suit skiers of an intermediate level, a number of beautiful hotels and a wide range of luxury chalets, traditionally Swiss in architectural style yet boasting the very latest in modern amenities, Gstaad truly is a wonderful place to take a short or long ski break as a family, a couple, or as a group of friends.

Expect an affluent and distinguished international clientele frequenting Gstaad’s upmarket and pedestrianised promenade that’s home to an extensive selection of elegant boutiques, fine jewellery and international flagship stores, culinary delights that will amaze even the most seasoned of gastronomes, trendy clubs and a stylish nightlife scene, and dazzling views of the region’s trademark Swiss alpine scenery.
