Mont Cervin Palace, Zermatt

Zermatt is where I first fell in love with Switzerland. You can't believe it exists - high in the mountains, no cars, stunningly gorgeous scenery and crisp air. I visited last week with my sister and it made me fall in love all over again. We stayed in the most gorgeous hotel, the Mont Cervin Palace.

It feels like a family-run B&B--the general managers are a funny, charming husband-and-wife team, Karin & Kevin--yet has all the amenities of a five-star resort. Many of the rooms have Matterhorn views, when the mighty mountain chooses to appear from behind the clouds. Here are a few photos, if you're interested. We loved being picked up from the train station for the super short ride to the hotel by horse-and-buggy!
