Win a Luxurious Alpine Getaway to Zermatt


Win a three-night stay at one of Zermatt's best hotels.

Nestled high in the Swiss Alps, Zermatt is the crème de la crème of ski resorts. Traditional wooden chalets dot a pine-tree flecked valley, snug mountain restaurants dish out world-class plates to skiers who've tackled some of the best off-piste in Europe and the après scene rivals that of St Anton. And we're yet to mention the Matterhorn.

As it's the season of goodwill, we've teamed up with Small Luxury Hotels to treat you and a friend to a three-night stay at one of Zermatt's best boltholes: Hotel Schweizerhof Zermatt.

You'll be checking in to your alpine-chic hotel room where cosy wooden interiors meet hi-tech amenities (rooms are controlled by iPad) and a vibe that lends itself to simply having a really lovely time. Established by Michel Reybier of Paris' La Réserve fame, this is the kind of place where you can expect top-notch service and an exceptionally luxurious few days.

We imagine many of you will want to hit the slopes immediately. By all means go ahead - though you may want to pay a visit to the hotel's resident ski expert first, who'll give you top tips on making the most of the weather and avoiding the crowds that day. Skiing not your thing? Schweizerhof has an abundance of modern sports equipment available for hire.

If snowsports aren't your bag at all, no matter. Spend days pottering through the chocolate-box town, dipping in and out of cafés and boutiques, or simply admiring the scenery. We've also arranged a spa treatment for each of you at the hotel - we've got our eyes on their signature detox massage - while the jacuzzi and indoor pool are places to soothe city- or slope-weary limbs.

Last but not least, we're putting your names down for dinner at one of the hotel's three fine-dining restaurants - you just need to let know us know which. If you've gorged on fondue and raclette at lunchtime, we recommend La Muña for a Peruvian-Japanese experience.

Happy holidays.
