Zermatt Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Self-catering with a cosy, home-stay feeling

The Chez Nous apartments are in a building called Haus Maoli that is just a 5 minute walk from the centre of Zermatt and all the apartments have stunning views straight out on to the majestic Matterhorn.

The Mischabel is a split level apartment on the second floor that can sleep 6-8 people.

Le Petit is on the first floor and can sleep 4 people.

The only practical point to bear in mind is that direct access to our building from street level is down 3 flights of stairs which might make it tricky for very young children. However once your luggage is installed most guests then use the shortcut to the village via a path across the field in front of the house.

Details for Le Petit 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 4, 1 Bathroom, 1 Half Bathrooms

Le Petit is a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom flat on the first floor of the building (on the right hand side as you look at the photo of the exterior). We like to think that it is small but perfectly formed. The pretty sitting room/dining room has a kitchen off it and a large wrap-around balcony that faces out to the field with the lovely old Swiss stadls in the foreground and the Matterhorn presiding in the background. The dining area comfortably seats 6 people and for relaxing evenings in there is a 45' home cinema system (with UK channels and Apple TV). The apartment is fully equipped with all the essentials including wifi, a coffee machine, hairdryers packs and a home made cake will be there to greet you when you arrive.
Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Lizzie Orange

We (Lizzie Orange and Angus Potter) have been living and working in Zermatt for the last 8 years (and Angus has been skiing here since he was 9 years old). We met here and, having left our 'London lives' behind, decided that Chez Nous was a great way to combine our skills. As well as running Chez Nous, Angus teaches skiing at one of the local ski schools (Stoked) and Lizzie is a private chef and organises events and, in the event that Chez Nous is not right for you, she can also tailor-make a holiday in Zermatt for you.

Lizzie Orange purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Lizzie Orange chose Zermatt

We have been running a small b&b from our apartment on the 3rd floor for the last 4 years. But in May this year the opportunity arose to take on 2 more flats in the same building (the Swiss laws re. foreigners buying property allowed us to buy one and lease the other) which means we can now offer our guests the privacy of a self-catered holiday combined with the feel and warmth of staying in someone else's home. We are completely re-furnishing the flats this summer to create a more cosy atmosphere that aims to make you feel at home from the moment you walk in.

What makes this apartment unique

We hope that us being 'on site' (without being in your way) will help you get the most out of your holiday. Angus knows the ski area like the back of his hand and Lizzie's forte is food - so between us we think we have the most important things covered. We will be on hand to make recommendations, reservations, answer any questions or simply have a glass of wine with you in the evening if you want to come upstairs and say hello.

Perfect apartment in Zermatt!

  • 5 of 5
Perfect location (within 5 mins to the station on foot.) and wonderful view of Matterhorn from the balcony. The apartment was new and clean. My parents and I had a nice stay there.

Owner's Response: Thank you Ting-Yu for taking the time to do a review for us. It was so nice to know that you and your parents enjoyed the apartment and the view of the Matterhorn especially as you had come all the way from Taiwan - you chose the right time of year!

Best wishes to you all for the remains of 2014, Lizzie

An Amazing Apartment

  • 5 of 5
This is an amazing apartment in an amazing location. The view from the balcony is breathtaking and Lizzie - the owner has such an great eye for detail. The apartment has everything you could wish for for a home from home. Angus - her partner has ensured that if you do want a night in there is state of the art audio and visual equipment to keep you entertained. We had a wonderful 2 weeks and would highly recommend this apartment.

Owner's Response: Oh thank you Hayley - it was lovely to meet you both and to see you enjoying the apartment. "Home from home" is what we were aiming for so that's a lovely description to have used - and I hope we will be able to lure you back during the winter season.

Best wishes to you in the meantime, Lizzie and Angus

Zermatt - Best Apartment with Matterhorn Views

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved Zermatt and Chez Nous was a huge part of it. Beautifully appointed apartment - even nicer than the photographs. We were there four days with our two children (11 and 14). It rained for two days and yet, we so enjoyed our time - between staring at the ever-changing Matterhorn, cooking in and watching Apple TV and BBC TV - all were content. The apartment was centrally located to the shops yet not in the thick of the tourist area. We were also there to enjoy August 1st - the Swiss National Day - fun, festive and lots of fireworks. We took incredible hikes as well. Can't wait to go back and ski! Oh yes, as you'll see in the reviews, everyone mentions Lizzie's lemon cake. I thought that was a nice gesture until I had a slice of that warm deliciousness - oh my goodness - it's a huge act of kindness - incredible! Lastly, Lizzie is just a wonderful host (we didn't get to meet Angus but no doubt he is too). And before I forget, Lizzie met us at the train station with a taxi and arranged for our return which made arrival and departure very easy.

Owner's Response: Hi Heather,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a thoughtful review of your stay - it was a genuine pleasure to meet you all and to see you making the most out of your time despite the rather unsettled weather (the mountains are never less than dramatic are they?!).

I do hope that we will be able to welcome you back here to ski at some stage and will look forward to seeing you all again. Very best wishes in the meantime, Lizzie (and Angus who is now back here!).

Perfect apartment in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I together with my parents spent a wonderful few days at Chez Nous in June 14. Le Petit apartment is spacious and beautifully furnished and has everything you could wish for including a fabulous view of the Matterhorn from the balcony. We took advantage of Lizzie’s offer to cook an evening meal on our first night and it was absolutely delicious and very plentiful and was the perfect start to our holiday. It was lovely to find the fridge stocked on arrival with immediate essentials including wine/beer and also a lovely lemon cake.
The location of the apartment is ideal –only a short walk to the village centre but in a quiet spot overlooking a small alpine meadow which in June was full of wild flowers.
The beds were very comfortable and even bath robes were provided. The TV/sound system is state of the art and it is amazing to find such quality in a holiday apartment.
All in all it was by far the best apartment we have ever stayed in and that’s all down to Lizzie and Angus’s attention to detail and great service.

Owner's Response: Oh Jane, what a lovely review. It was so nice to meet you all and know that you and Tony had managed to give your parents such a successful first trip to Zermatt to see The Matterhorn and I'm glad that we managed to play a part in that. And thank you for your kind words and appreciation of what Angus and I have tried to create here - that kind of reaction means a great deal to us both.

I hope that we may be able to welcome you back at some stage but in the meantime very best wishes to you both and to your parents. Lizzie and Angus.

Classy convenient chalet

  • 5 of 5
Guests at Le Petit can expect top quality, the owners have not skimped on furnishings and have thought of everything. The chalet has everything needed for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Lizzie is also incredibly helpful with local knowledge. The chalet is positioned between the main ski access gondolas, so access is easy. We had not realised how sprawling Zermatt was prior to arrival and the location of Le Petit is fantastic - relatively flat walking distance to the shopping and the lifts. It was also the cleanest chalet we have ever stayed in.

Owner's Response: Dear Laura

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us and I'm so glad that you liked Le Petit and appreciated the way it is furnished. And Maria, our wonderful cleaner whom a lot of guests have ask whether they can take home with them, will be delighted so thank you for that and I will pass your comments on to her. Hope we may see you here again. Best wishes to you all, Lizzie

Fabulous Apartment - Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
This flat was immaculate, and centrally located. The perfect size (two bedrooms), well appointed and very comfortable. ... And did I mention the view? Unbeatable! There is open space next to the building, so the view is unobstructed.

Lizzie was extra nice, and helped us get to and from the rail station via electric taxi. She also knew (and was happy to recommend) all the best places to eat.

I would recommend this place to anyone.

Owner's Response: Dear Jim

Thank you for taking the time to post a review for us and I'm so glad that you got to enjoy the Matterhorn in all its glory from the apartment (I'm afraid that say that other guests who came in July have not been so lucky because it has been shrouded in cloud…).

Hope that we may be able to welcome you back here but in the meantime best wishes to you all, Lizzie.

Car: not necessary

Zermatt deserves its reputation as one of the world's best mountain resorts - there is a magical quality to it all year round.

The Klein Matterhorn cable car is the highest cable car in Europe (3,883m at the summit) and on a clear day gives you simply breathtaking views out towards Mont Blanc and its surrounding peaks. Alternatively start your day on the Gornergrat railway which originally opened in 1898 and is the second highest railway in Europe (after the Jungfrau) - a great feat of Swiss engineering. From the top of Gornergrat you get a sweeping panorama of 29 'four thousanders' (mountains over 4,000m) including the Monte Rosa which is the highest mountain in Switzerland.

In the winter your lift pass covers the Zermatt and Cervinia and includes some 360km of marked runs but if that isn't enough you can also ice skate, sledge, hike, snow shoe, try curling or simply swim and relax in one of the village hotel's wonderful wellness areas.

In the summer there is glorious hiking, climbing, a fun park for the children, cycling, tennis, squash, paragliding and plenty of places to have a picnic by a lake.

At any time of year Zermatt has something to offer and its mountain restaurants are second to none in the Alps so the gourmet will not be disappointed either.
