Epic Europe


Breuil - Cervinia

In the heart of the Italian Alps, in the small town of Breuil-Cervinia lies the boutique hotel, Principe Delle Nevi or “Prince of Snow”. Boasting a prime location, the hotel can be found on one of the highest points in town, affording it ski-in/ski-out access to the mountains and magnificent, panoramic views of the infamous Matterhorn range. 

The hotel underwent an extended renovation in 2010 and now has 27 rooms, including two luxury suites decorated as cozy, modern lofts. All rooms include fine Italian linens, L'Occitaine personal care products and stunning mountain views. Principe Delle Nevi believes in indulging guests in the full Italian experience, which includes gourmet food and wine and an ultra-modern spa for post-ski pampering.


Co-owners, James McNeill and Kristin Gynnild, have redefined modern, boutique hotel hospitality. The couple, who live on-site, handle everything for their guests with true, family-style service.


SPA & WELLNESS: The wellness area includes heated indoor and outdoor swimming pools (with hydrojets), steam room, rainforest shower, Finnish Sauna, Jacuzzi, relaxation room and fitness area. A full menu of massage and body treatments are available.


FOOD & DRINK: Chef Francesca Pasini specializes in homemade pastas, pastries, delectable sauces and deserts using the freshest, local ingredients. The ski-in ski-out bar is the perfect place to end your day on the hill, or start an evening on the town.


LOCATION: The hotel boasts a prime location in Cervinia at the “Alpe Giomein”, historically the sunniest spot in the whole resort, and includes a magnificent view of the Matterhorn. The hotel is walking distance to the slopes and town.


The hotel opened a new hotel part November 2017. The new part of the hotel is connected to the existing hotel by a 65 m long tunnel. All the services are provided in the “old” hotel part, such as reception, shuttle service, breakfast & dinner, and the spa facilities.

  • "I have done trips in the Alps and surrounding regions with Epic Europe for the past 4 years, and every one has been unique and surpassed the last. The experiences that they deliver due to their personal relationships are a window into the real life in these incredible locations, and they share these friendships with us." - K.B., CT USA
  • "Hiking in the Alps has always been on my bucket list, but I wasn't sure that a typical trip was my style. Epic Europe designed a custom route for our group, staying in the best little inns and hotels, and we felt like we had the trails to ourselves. I will come back again and again to explore new trails with their guides every year that I can!" - R.B., NY USA
  • “The team at Epic Europe created the most incredible trip for us, where everything came together seamlessly, and we never had to think about what came next - it just magically happened as if it was meant to be. That takes real talent, and they make it look easy." - B.N., WY USA
  • "I would have to say that Verbier and Zermatt might be the best places I have ever ridden a mountain bike, and I couldn't imagine going without the help of Epic Europe's guides. It was a dream trip for sure." - B.S., PA USA
  • "Our family spent last Christmas in Zermatt on a bespoke Epic Europe ski trip. The special thought and care that they put into our holiday made it our best yet." - L.M.; CA USA
  • "Epic Europe's custom road biking trip that they put together for my buddy's bachelor party was great - the right combination of killer rides, great hotels, and outstanding restaurants. Great guides, and overall a perfect trip." - A.S., London UK
  • "A day of heliskiing in Italy culminated with a sunset run off the Breuil saddle of the Matterhorn - one of the most thrilling runs of my life - and we left our tracks in a place where they remained for a week afterward, reminding us of the best day of skiing in our life!" - WG, CT USA
  • "Epic Europe has coordinated several corporate events for us over the past 5 years, and I cannot imagine a more professional operation to handle all of the details. From a team-building event for 50 people in a 17th-century castle atop a mountain pass, to marketing conferences and catalog shoots, their knowledge of the best locations in the Alps is second-to-none, and they are as good as it gets at being creative." - E.P., Lugano CH
