The extensive ski resort of Cervinia / Valtournenche is situated in Italy’s scenic Aosta Valley, with extensions over the border into Switzerland, known as the ‘Queen of the Snow’, this vast snowy area begins at 1,524m in Valtournenche, embraces Breuil-Cervinia – 2050m, rises up to Plateau Rosà at 3,488m, touches the 4,000-metre peak of Piccolo Cervino (Klein Matterhorn), and climbs to 4,478m, the top of the Matterhorn. Cervinia / Valtournenche is world famous for its snow record and extensive ski slopes, and most visitors to the resort come here to ski, but the villages do offer a variety of alternatives to skiing. These include: Cross country skiing, ski-dooing, bobsledding, a natural open-air ice-skating rink, indoor swimming, paragliding, saunas/steam-rooms, fitness gym, squash, tennis, cinemas, a museum, horse riding and a large children’s winter playground.

We have a passion for Italy, the mountains and skiing. This is a hidden secret, with the most amazing skiing. The summers are wonderful too.
I live in England with my wife and 3 children. My wife and I both work, we try and get to the mountains for long weekends and family skiing. We have made wonderful friends in Italy and have really fallen in love with the country, people, food and wine.
