Chalet Hotel Dragon

  • Italy, Cervinia

Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

The beloved Dragon has long been a favorite with British skiers due to its unbeatable location at the foot of the pistes and the lively après ski bar. The interior décor is inspired by a British country pub and there's always a warm and convivial feel to this great Chalet Hotel. The bedrooms are simple but tastefully decorated in pine and some have balconies overlooking the impressive Matterhorn and the main terrace. As previously mentioned, the hotel's public bar is a popular après venue with a generous happy hour and occasional live music - the perfect place to sit with friends to enjoy a lively afternoon or evening.

The Dragon also has an underground bar that opens a few nights a week - one for the famous Cervinia pub crawl and another for the extremely popular quiz night. It may be open additional evenings for special events. Sporting fixtures are shown in the pub and underground bar - the Six Nations and football matches always bring big crowds. If you're part of a large group you can even request the downstairs bar to be reserved. 

After a day's skiing in one of Europe's best ski domains you are able to come straight from the slopes into the Chalet Hotel for afternoon tea and cake, or join the après ski in the main pub or outside on the terrace. Dinner is served in a private dining room where you will enjoy the pre-dinner drinks and time to relax. The Dragon's pub has always been a popular after dinner spot so be sure to check the weekly entertainment programme with our bar staff or Rep. 

Please note : Chalet Hotel Dragon is not suitable for children under 12 years.

Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 45 mins by coach from Turin airport.

Cervinia

Dominated by the mighty Matterhorn and surrounded by outstanding scenery, the village of Cervinia is one of the highest resorts in the Alps. The extensive ski area is served by an impressive lift system which connects Cervinia with Valtournenche as well as Zermatt in Switzerland. The skiing in Cervinia seems almost limitless - from Plateau Rosa you can reach the slopes of both Zermatt and Valtournenche. Cervinia is great for intermediate skiing and its high altitude means good snow levels all through the ski season. In the best of both worlds you can ski up and over the Swiss border, enjoy some of the skiing on the glamorous Zermatt side and return to Italy in time for a late (and much cheaper!) lunch. The village of Cervinia offers a good selection of shops, bars, nightclubs, pizzerias and restaurants.
