Swiss mountains at their best... with the Matterhorn in the background

Here we are in Switzerland to discover the Valais province famous for its many peaks over 4000m, including the very famous Matterhorn.
Starting at the heart of the Valais vineyards, exploring their amazing irrigation channels running between hills and valleys. The two first days are spent in a charming hotel to relax facing a magnificent Alpine panorama.
Next is the Val d'Anniviers, a traditional high valley at the foot of the "crown of 4000s". Quiet, clean air, breathtaking scenery... a pearl of the Swiss Alps.
Zermatt, the Swiss alpine capital, finally welcomes us in its setting of majestic mountains: The Matterhorn, Monte Rosa, Castor and Pollux are the stars of our alpine getaway.
An eclectic mix enjoying the richness of the Swiss Alps...
