The Hotel Punta Maquignaz is owned by the Maquignaz family. Gabriele Maquignaz is an artist, so expect artistic interiors and individually decorated rooms. The Maquignaz family are also mountain guides so they're the best people to ask if you want tips on your next walking excursion.

In the centre of Cervinia

With easy access to the Campetto Cretaz lift this is the ideal starting point for a variety of walks. The hotel's just a five minute walk away from the lifts so you can hop on the gondola and make your way up to some stunning view points. While you're up there try out the Baita Cretaz restaurant, they do delicious alpine food using locally sourced products and you can eat on the terrace which has fantastic views over Cervinia (make sure you book in advance).

Boutique  décor

The hotel was built in the 50's but renovated in the late 90's by the Maquignaz family who always put their own stamp on their hotels. You'll find eclectic art everywhere you look and each room has unique pieces of furniture. What we love about this hotel is its cosy alpine atmosphere and its traditional Italian meets 'quirky-boutique' style.

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.
