Uela! We are very lucky in the Swiss Alps as there are plenty of resorts that offer year-round fun, and Andermatt in the heart of the mountains is no exception. Whilst being renowned for its extensive winter offering, Andermatt has fast become a destination for the warmer months too, particularly popular with walkers, cyclists, golfers and nature lovers. The village has been undergoing an impressive 1.8 billion CHF transformation recently, paying homage to its history whilst adapting to the modern way of life. It’s no wonder therefore that alpine property buyers are increasingly choosing Andermatt as somewhere they can own a holiday home.
