If your vision of alpine living is more Heidi than high fashion, you may need to readjust your expectations of the Swiss village of Andermatt – one of the most snow-reliable resorts in the Alps. This charming, old-world town is undergoing a radical 21st-century makeover masterminded by Egyptian billionaire Samih Sawiris, who has not only initiated an entirely new ski area, Andermatt-Sedrun (alongside a development of six luxury hotels, 42 apartment buildings, 28 chalets and an 18-hole golf course) but also ensured the architectural and cultural offering is cutting-edge.

Soon, an international-standard concert hall by Christina Seilern (formerly of Walkie Talkie architects Rafael Viñoly) will join homes already at the vanguard of the project, such as a chic two-bedroom apartment (chestertons-international.com; SFr2.574m, about £1.95m), which effortlessly balances traditional mountain warmth with contemporary high style.
