Is it my imagination or does it seem like famous movie actors, not only those in Hollywood, but all over the world, seem to lead glamorous lives? Granted, the tabloids aren’t really are going to sell many papers if they talk about how to brush their teeth, so what we get to know about them tends to involve lots of romance, intrigue and luxury vacations. Are we supposed to feel envious? Are we meant to feel that somehow their lives are better than ours? I’m not sure I want to trade my life for that other famous movie star. True, I might get to have a kissing scene with Angelina Jolie, but the pressure must be unbelievable. Can you imagine paparazzi following you when you go shopping at the local food store? Or if you want to step out with a few of your mates to the local pub, just to unwind, and find dozens of camera flashlights popping off in your face? No thanks. But I would like to have some of the famous movie stars’ lifestyle, and that would specifically apply to their vacations. They always seem to be going to the most interesting places, hanging out in great resorts, and seem to have a good time, which they probably deserve, given the torture that the media usually puts them through.

Unwind like you just won the Oscars
The truth is, movie stars are just like us, they just have more disposable income, or better travel agents, or a combination of the two. But one can easily have a memorable vacation, without breaking the bank, by heading to some great ski resorts, either summer or winter, and enjoying those wonderful landscapes and views that only the Alps can offer. The Alps cover a wide range of mountains and even countries, but what they do have in common is a great sense of hospitality, and brisk fresh air, that can do a person a lot of good.
One of the most famous mountains in the entire Alpine region is the Matterhorn, with its iconic corkscrew shape, which amazingly, was only scaled for the first time a hundred and fifty years ago. It is quite steep, offering skiers wonderfully challenging runs, where they can perfect their technique. Zermatt is the picturesque village at the base of the mountain and here, you can rent a ski chalet Zermatt which will provide you with the luxury that any movie star would be happy to enjoy. Choices range from traditional Swiss wooden beamed chalets that can accommodate a whole family, or a group of friends, with sleeping quarters for everybody, to smaller, more modern chalets that are adorned with that quintessential Swiss sense of style.
Head for the wide-open spaces
ouldn’t you agree that you deserve a break? Maybe now would be a great time to take advantage of renting a ski chalet Zermatt and treating yourself and your family to a truly unforgettable holiday. If you dress the part, and wear sunglasses just about everywhere, you might even get stopped for an autograph.
