Christmas and New Year, Celerina or Zuoz?

We are planning to spend a family holiday over X-Mas and New Year at Chesa Rosatsch. Do you have any comments about the hotel? Also, would you have a recommendation whether we should rather go to the pictureque village of Zuoz? We are skiing beginners (one non-skier)and would prefer a location which gives us a good variety of things to do - not only skiing.

Definitely Celerina. It is also a beautiful village, not as much as Zuoz, that I admit, but still ... and the hotel Chesa Rosatsch is located in the old section of the village next to the small river. Very nice.

In Celerina you'll be close to all the activities. Zuoz is much quieter. Btw, the skiing area of Zuoz is quite small and most runs are surprisingly challenging. Only one would qualify for beginners - you're much better off in Celerina/Marguns-Corviglia.

The hotel you chose is excellent. You'll have a blast.

Hi Petersburg,

Right, I agree with eagle above -- I think Zuoz will be too small for your taste. I spent a week in Zuoz one time (with friends), but we spent most days out on excursions. The village only has a few more hotels and restaurants, not much else.

Have fun!

You can stay in Celerina and plan a day sightseeing in Zuoz, perhaps combined with a cross country ski tour. There are good train and bus connections between the villages. I would also suggest you do an excursion to the villages in the lake district like Sils or Maloja while you will be here.

Hotel Rosatsch is a very good hotel and is renowned for it's cuisine.
