Self-catering with a cosy, home-stay feeling and on-site concierge service
The 3 Chez Nous apartments are all in the same building (Haus Maoli) just a 5 minute walk from the centre of Zermatt/the ski bus. All the apartments have large south facing balconies with un-interrupted views straight out on to The Matterhorn. One of the few remaining fields is just in front of us which gives a welcome feeling of space despite being so close to all the restaurants, the church bridge and the lift stations/bus.
We have 3 apartments available to rent so larger groups of family and friends can be in the same building but with their own space to retreat to!
The Corbassiere Apartment is a new addition to Chez Nous for the winter 2016/17 season and is a beautiful 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment on the 3rd floor that can sleep up to 6 people.
The Mischabel is a split level apartment with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms on the second floor that can sleep 6-8 people.
Le Petit (actually much bigger than it sounds because it comfortably sleeps 4/5 people!) is a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment on the first floor.
Your hosts Lizzie & Angus live in the same building so in addition to everything that we do before you get here (we can organise ski schools, book restaurants, help with child care etc) we are also on hand during your stay to help with any questions. And if for any reason we are not here, we have a couple who will be here to look after you in our absence who both know Zermatt very well so you will be in good hands.
The only practical point to bear in mind is that direct access to our building from street level is down 3 flights of stairs. 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.
WARNING: we feel duty bound to warn any potential traveller, using sites like these, about the widespread proliferation of scammers setting up bogus listings and sites. If you are AT ALL uncertain about whether what you are booking is valid PLEASE telephone us because a conversation about what is on offer is much less easily 'faked' than an email offer/confirmation and we will always take the time to explain the Chez Nous service to you in detail.

About Lizzie Orange
We (Lizzie Orange and Angus Potter) have been living and working in Zermatt for the last 10 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, 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 Täsch
Initially we ran a small b&b from our own apartment but we now have 4 apartments in this building (the Swiss laws re. foreigners buying property allowed us to buy one and lease the others) and as from Winter 2016/17, Chez Nous has 3 apartments to rent (The Corbassiere which sleeps 6 on the 3rd floor, The Mischabel which sleeps 6-8 on the 2nd floor and Le Petit which sleeps 4 on the 1st floor). We offer our guests the privacy of a self-catered holiday combined with the feel and warmth of staying in someone else's home. We have completely re-furnished the flats to create a more cosy atmosphere that aims to make you feel at home from the moment you walk in. When we set up Chez Nous I don’t think either of us imagined the pleasure we would get from meeting and getting to know the guests who have stayed with us. We spent a lot of time talking about how we wanted the flats to look (and, as anyone who has done this will know, arguing about what should go where!) but didn’t foresee how nice it would be to see families and friends enjoying the space we have created. We are delighted to be able to welcome so many guests who now stay with us each year (as well as saying hello to new guests) and we are doing our best to make sure we add a few new touches to each apartment each season to keep them fresh as well as familiar
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.

Well situated and perfectly appointed.
We had a wonderful stay, and can't wait to come back. Lizzie is a consummate and generous host, a great resource, and incredibly helpful with planning, recommendations, reservations, and the like. The chalet is centrally located, and perfectly appointed. A really great place to stay. Highly recommend!
Wonderful Week at Chez Nous - The Mischabel
We stayed a week in the Mischabel and I can't say enough good things about it. The apartment was perfect and comfortable and with everything we needed. A perfect view of the Matterhorn out the window. Just as important, our host Lizzie went above and beyond to help us out. Before we arrived, she helped with questions, made a few dinner reservations for us, and even made plans to purchase our lift passes for us. She brought them to our apartment so that was one less thing we'd have to do on our arrival day! Thank you Lizzie for a great week.
Lovely apartment, good service.
We went to Apartment Mischabel with extended family. Grandparents, parents and 3 children aged 8, 6 and 4 and everything worked well for us. Location is good, very close to center of town but still quiet with a nice view to the Matterhorn. The apartment itself has a nice layout, three bedroom with each a bathroom. Everything was perfectly equipped, bathroom with lots of towels and soap/shampoo, kitchen with all you need. It's a type of apartment you can come to and you don't have to worry about whether you have to shopping immediately in order to buy a lot of the basics like toilet paper, tissues, dishwasher tabs etc. Everything is there. The apartment is really nicely decorated and furnished, lots of entertainment possibilities (TV channels, Swisscom TV, Apple TV etc.). Lizzie has been very helpful from A to Z - organizing ski school for the kids, lift passes, making restaurant reservations every day and so on. No time wasted to worry about where to go to eat. The whole stay was very relaxed. Would definitively go again if we got back to Zermatt.
Dear Alain - thank you so much for taking the time to do such a full review (without even being asked!). It was lovely to have you all with us for your first winter trip to Zermatt and especially nice to see a whole extended family spending time together and I am so pleased that you found the apartment a good base for and appreciated how we try and make sure that all the "essentials" are here so that our guests can get on with enjoying their holiday.
I hope that we will be able to welcome you back and very best wishes to you all for the rest of 2018, Lizzie
Loved the whole package
The Mischabel is a beautiful 3 bedroom 3 bathroom unit that is beautifully furnished & maintained. It’s close enough to walk anywhere in the village without a hassle. Great views of the Matterhorn from the living room & main bedroom. Lizzie and Angus are dedicated people who want nothing more to make your stay as positive experience as can be. From picking you up in a taxi at the station, organising lift passes and ski lessons before you arrive, leaving Xmas presents under the tree for kids on arrival, doing a shop so milk, beer, bread, fruit & essentials were in the unit before our arrival...it is hard to find fault with anything. Great spot, great service, great memories.
Thank you so much for taking the time to do a review Peter - much appreciated as are the comments about your stay. It was lovely to see a big, extended, family group enjoying Zermatt (and as we now know you got the best of the recent weather!) and I am so glad that you chose Chez Nous as the base for your own family. We really enjoyed having you to stay and hope that at some stage we may be able to welcome you back to us.
Safe journey home when the trip finally ends and very best wishes to you, Robyn and the kids for the rest of 2018. Lizzie and Angus
Beautiful, clean apartment with all amenities and view of the Matterhorn
This apartment is perfect for 6-8 people. It is spacious with tons of natural light. Great proximity to the Center of town and a 10 min walk to Matterhorn glacier lift. Lizzie and Angus went out of their way to ensure we were well taken care of- from making all our restaurant reservations on the hill and in town, to keeping us informed about the conditions and lift closures when there were high winds. Overall, our family has traveled to many different places in the world and we can't remember having a more hospitable service from our hosts. I highly recommend “Chez Nous”, without reservation.
Thank you so much Nathalie - I said to you when you left that your good spirits in quite challenging weather conditions also gave us a real boost. It means so much to both me and Angus that seasoned travellers like you appreciated our hospitality - we really enjoyed hosting you all and seeing you make the most of the new snow. Very best wishes to you all for 2018 and do let us know if you are ever heading back our way! Lizzie and Angus
Cozy, with great views and great location
Lizzie made us feel very welcome, and made sure we got off to a great start by meeting us at the train and accompanying us to the apartment. It is very comfortable and has a wonderful view of the Matterhorn. The kitchen is well appointed, as is the rest of the house. Nice unexpected perks too. If we visit Zermatt again we would love to stay here again.
Thank you for taking the time to do this Stephen. It was so nice to hear that you had a good time in Zermatt and that we managed to make you feel welcome without us being there (that matters a lot to us both). I do hope that we will be able to welcome you back again - some and see the winter view some day soon!
Very best wishes to you for the rest of this year, Lizzie
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.
