Tuesday 17 March 2015

Breathe in the fresh Alpine air and relax at the chic Steigenberger Alpenhotel and Spa in Gstaad, a perfect retreat for a revitalising taste of Swiss country life.

Revitalise at a chic Swiss chalet hotel and make stylish Gstaad your summertime spa retreat

The stylish chalet hotel is all wooden floors and fireplaces with smart furnishings - and every bedroom has a balcony or terrace to take in the spectacular scenery.

Pampering in the three-storey wellness spa is an exceptional experience and on the top level, from the warmth of the Finnish panoramic sauna, enjoy unique views over the Bernese mountains.

On the garden level is a lavish indoor pool with a sun terrace and loungers offering spectacular scenic views over the Rüblihorn mountain.

Guests on this new Saga holiday can walk into the town or follow well-tended hiking and bike trails through wild flower meadows (cycles available to hire from the hotel). For those who want to venture further there is a cable car to explore the region.

Saga guests enjoy buffet breakfasts and a three-course dinner on four nights and there are some evenings left free for guests to sample the cuisine at other local eateries.

This Stay & Explore Saga holiday includes three tours:

Bern, Gruyeres and Swiss Chocolate: View the UNESCO-protected city of Bern and visit the house where Albert Einstein lived and worked. There will also be stops to taste cheese in the Gruyères dairy and a tour of the Cailler-Nestlé chocolate factory at Broc.

Travel to the 2,970-metre summit of the Schilthorn by train, post bus and cable-car. There are 360° views over 200 mountain summits from the revolving Piz Gloria restaurant where scenes from the 007 film On her Majesty's Secret Service were shot.

Take the iconic Golden Pass railway to Montreux, on Lake Geneva. The mild climate and lakeland scenery have attracted visitors for centuries. Follow in their footsteps with a stroll along the flower-bordered promenade and explore the 12th century island Château de Chillon.
