For many of us who haven’t holidayed since before the pandemic, it’s hard to look at Alpine hotels without feeling a pang of longing.

Alongside photographs of flowery meadows and cows roaming the streets of Swiss villages, this book offers walkers, skiers, gourmets and lovers of the outdoors some excellent tips — even down to which books to pack (one recommendation is Mr Noon by D. H. Lawrence: a novel based on the alpine abduction of Lawrence’s wife) — on getting the most out of the Alps.
