The Hotel Grivola's such a cosy hotel to come back to when you've been out exploring the mountains. It has a really unique style and a warm fire to relax by at the end of the day.

Central location in Cervinia

Just a short walk away from the Campetto Cretaz lift, this is the ideal hotel for getting out onto those fantastic walking trails as quickly as possible each day. You'll also be right in the centre of town which means you can step out of the hotel and immediately immerse yourself in Cervinia's relaxed atmosphere. Wander around town, try out the bars and cafes and get to know the locals.

Try out the local food and wine 

The food in this hotel is fantastic, we especially love the steaks. They do the juiciest tomahawk and T-bone steak, well worth a try if this is your type of food. The hotel also has a fantastic selection of wine to choose from with a very knowledgeable maitre-d. This is a fantastic opportunity to try out the wine from the Val D'Aosta and get to know the flavours of the region.

Great for art lovers

The Hotel Grivola's the best place to stay if you love being surrounded by creativity. The hotel is the creation of it's owner Gabriel Maquignaz who's also an artist. It's full of eclectic modern art, sculptures and plush furnishings. If you love Gabriel's Modernist style then check out his gallery next door to the hotel, where you can buy his work.

Perching on the Italian slopes of the mighty Matterhorn - or Monte Cervino as the locals call it - is the little town of Cervinia. This is where Italy meets Switzerland, very easily visited during the day thanks to the lift network linking Cervinia to Zermatt. From its high glaciers - where you can ski, even in summer - down to its main street lined with bars and restaurants, Cervinia has been on the map for hiking, climbing, biking (and skiing) for over a century. And for good reason…

Alpine Crossing and the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise

The brand new Cervinia-Zermatt Alpine Crossing - the highest cross country gondola in Europe, links Testa Grigia in Italy to the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise in Zermatt. This is big news for the area and a long time coming as the idea for the Alpine Crossing was conceived 80 years ago! At the top, there’s a 360° viewing platform, a ‘glacier palace’, fine dining, ski slopes, plus hiking and biking trails. With wheelchair access, it’s accessible for everyone.

No better place for a family trip

It being Italy, and Italians loving children as they do, Cervinia is perfetto for a family holiday. On top of the outdoor space and activities - easy walking routes, fun biking trails, rafting and the kids’ snow park (even in summer!) - there are also fairy-tale castles to explore. And let’s not forget this is the land of pizza, pasta and gelato - every childs’ favourite food.

The ‘blue lake’ - or Lago Blu, should we say

Half an hour’s walk from Cervinia is Lago Blu with its deep turquoise colour. Walk around the small lake to catch it from the right angle and see the Matterhorn mirrored in its clear waters. Not far away are the Layet Lakes, three pozze (or ‘puddles’) of spring water, all different hues of blue-green, that overlook the valley.

Through the Aosta Valley: Cammino Balteo

Here’s one for the hard-core hikers: hiking the Cammino Balteo (or perhaps just a section or two…). This is a circular itinerary of around 220 miles which can be split into 23 stages (4-6 hours each) through the entire Aosta Valley, with its lakes, nature reserves, waterfalls, pastures, vineyards, ancient fortresses and castles. Most of the walking is gentle, and not too high-altitude, so dipping in and out of the full circuit and official route is a good option, even with kids in tow.
