Switzerland, known for its prosperous economy and breath-taking skiing slopes is also home to the scenic alpine region, commonly referred to as the Swiss Alps. Nestled below distinctive mountains and undulating pastures, Gstaad has long been referred to as a fine destination to breakaway from city noise and routine. Weathered timber wood restored for capacious chalets, circled by cattle ringing their cowbells, the unspoilt panorama transplants an immediate mind-opening movement; akin to a vibrant page out of a Hermann Hesse novel. The slogan here ‘come up, slow down’ is an accurate and increasingly important dialogue for the modern lifestyle. Let your attention be undivided and loop into an uncomplicated tempo in Gstaad.
Synonymous to Cannes in France, Gstaad outperforms itself with the ability to make individuals feel a part of the town’s decadence and exclusivity. Historically, the town was dominated by cattle farming but the introduction of ski runs and acclaimed ski schools it transformed the town into a chic destination. A retreat in Gstaad is perfect for those who want to experience luxury but also achieve a deeper connection with the well-preserved natural environment.
