Gstaad is a traditional Swiss village that is synonymous with authentic Alpine allure and discreet luxury and sophistication
A long a favourite with Royals and A-listers, Gstaad's celebrity status has made it an elegantly refined Alpine icon for decades, yet it remains authentically Alpine with typical old wooden Swiss chalets and a genuine mountain lifestyle where artisans retain their classic skills and farmers live off the Alpine pastures. Gstaad offers a compelling combination of stunning mountain scenery, pristine alpine air, fairytale-esque hotels, glamourous bars, gourmet restaurants and exclusive shops that line its traffic-free, cobbled streets. Whether visiting for a fantastical winter wonderland or to experience the adventure playground with colourful meadows during the summer months, a journey to Gstaad is one of unforgettable splendour and adventure. Home to one of the largest ski areas in the Alps, it comprises 220km of largely long easy runs, spread over four areas including guaranteed snow on Glacier 3000. Tennis, polo, golf, hiking and biking are all at home in this glamorous mountain playground. The resort is the playground of the fabulously wealthy, who prefer discreet comfort and sophistication, and wish to enjoy an unpretentious and authentic taste of Alpine life.
