Cervinia is a world-famous winter resort that rivals any other in the Alps.
The Breuil-Cervinia Valtournenche Zermatt area is one of the largest in the Alps, with a varied “domaine skiable” beyond compare, which stretches through three valleys in two countries, Italy and Switzerland, from the 3,883 m of the Piccolo Cervino descending to the 1,524 m of Valtournenche. Ski runs offering the chance to ski all day without ever repeating the same run twice, alternating easier runs with those of increasing difficulty.

The origins of Breuil-Cervinia date back more than two hundred years ago, when uncontaminated nature dominated the area at the foot of the Cervino, and the Breuil basin was an immense Alpine pasture which could only be reached after walking for hours. “Breuil” in patois means “land of much water”, indicating the numerous lakes and rivers that characterised this area. The majestic beauty of the mountain and the landscape has encouraged mountaineers and intellectuals over the years to tackle the paths that led to Breuil.
