This family chalet built in 1964 and renovated 2006/7 is, probably, Zermatt’s best kept secret. It is situated in a beautiful elevated position, with uninterrupted views of the Matterhorn, in preserved tranquil surroundings where the natural wildlife roam freely. The Chalet is just 5 minutes walk to the main Klein Matterhorn departure station and to the centre of the village. Access to the chalet is by its own telecabin but it is also accessible by a well-maintained footpath through a wooded area.
Every detail of the chalet has been carefully planned retaining its’ characteristic charm. Several new windows have been installed to invite the natural environment and light into the Chalet and using the ancient Chinese method of feng-shui to create a feeling of harmony throughout. Decorated using natural woods and materials with stylish yet comfortable furnishings to compliment its’ individual character. The spacious lounge has a large wood-burning fireplace, comprising ample comfortable seating for 12 people, overlooking the terrace and garden with its’ breathtaking views of the Matterhorn. It is equipped with plasma TV, DVD, CD/Radio and has wireless Internet connection. Separated from the lounge by glass doors the dining area has a long table that seats 12 and benefits from a feature window overlooking the surrounding mountains and village of Zermatt. The modern kitchen adjoins the dining area.
The Chalet comprises 5 double bedrooms, (3 en suite) and 1 extra bathroom and a separate WC. All bathrooms refurbished for 2012.
