Join Mark F Lodge for a painting holiday this summer in and around the beautiful village of Zermatt, Switzerland.
The beauty of the setting is unsurpassed, Zermatt dominated by the unmistakeable peak of the Matterhorn standing at the head of a 30km long valley, on the border with Italy in the Canton of Valais.The Matterhorn draws people from all over the world, artists, photographers, alpinists and tourists to this beautiful village.
Almost one third of the 4000 metre mountains in the Alps are grouped around this famous resort.
As an artist and alpinist I find myself being drawn to Zermatt time and time again for the awe-inspiring views, I welcome you to join me on one of my painting holidays.
Zermatt is at the end of a valley, only electric vehicles are allowed to operate around the village, most people choosing to be on foot making the village feel very hospitable.
A mountain railway and lifts make it easy to get high into the mountains, there are more than 400km of hiking trails, 90% of the land is nature reserves, alpine fauna coupled with unsurpassed views, fresh alpine air and an excellent climate, Zermatt is the perfect, idyllic place for a painting holiday. Come and join me for a wonderful time in 2019.
