Hotel Lyskamm

  • Italy, Cervinia

Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Lyskamm has lots of comfort and a rustic mountain style, but the best thing about it is the location. It's opposite the Campetto and Cretaz chairlifts, so you can ski back to about 20 metres from the door. That's if you don't stop at one of the ski bars on your way to the boot room. It's in the centre of town just beside Cervinia's main high street, so you won't need to walk far to find a nice restaurant for dinner. That being said, you'll have started your day well with the hotel's breakfast buffet and might want to give their à la carte restaurant a try in the evening.

The spa facilities here are payable locally, but they're worth it to relax after being out on the mountains all day. We loved sitting outside in the Jacuzzi on the terrace with a glass of red in hand, watching the late skiers doing their last run. Out here there's also a wood stove heated sauna that looks out towards the Matterhorn. 

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

Cervinia

As one of Europe’s highest ski resorts, great snow conditions and an impressive glacier come as standard. What truly makes this resort stand out is the towering site of the Matterhorn and just how close it is. That mixed with the rest of the incredible surrounding landscape and you have yourself the perfect setting for what is simply an amazing ski resort.

Cervinia is known for its extensive ski area and as you head up the mountain to the high peaks of the Plateau Rosa you will appreciate the impressive lift system which connects you to Valtournenche as well as the famous Swiss resort of Zermatt. Almost an endless network of runs means there is plenty of variety and places to explore as well as some superb off-piste. Being based on the Italian side of the mountain definitely has its benefits, what with great food, service full of Italian flair and let’s not forget it’s a lot cheaper than over the border with our Swiss friends. With an International ski pass you have the best of both worlds, so definitely worth it if you plan to get in the miles and want to explore the full area.

The village of Cervinia is a good size and there is lots to see and do. Along the font of the slopes you will find plenty of bars overlooking the piste, many serving lunch with an epic view of the Matterhorn. Later in the day the music is turned up and you have a great range of après bars to choose from. Further into town along the traffic free cobbled streets you will find plenty of shops to brows as well as some great hidden little pizzerias, perfect if you want a slice for lunch.

In and around the resort there is a massive selection of things to do. Rev up the engine and have a go at ice karting, take to the skies and feel the adrenaline of tandem paragliding, have a dip in the local pool or visit the highest ice grotto in Europe over on the Swiss side of the mountains – whatever you are after and whatever the age range, there is something for everyone in this smashing authentic Italian resort.
