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.

Superb apartment, ideally positioned in Zermatt
The apartment is so well arranged, furnished and decorated and ideally positioned for both the main ski lifts and and central Zermatt shops and restaurants.The view over an old meadow to the mountains and the Matterhorn is wonderful.Lizzie and Angus are wonderful hosts. Nothing seems to be too much trouble and they really know Zermatt and all the ski areas. Have been going to Zermatt since 2004 and have now stayed at Chez Nous for four years and genuinely wouldnt think of anywhere else in Zermatt.Cannot recommend highly enough.
Perfect home from home in zermatt
We had a great stay at chez nous zermatt for two reasons. Firstly the apartment itself was very comfortable, spacious and well equipped. Secondly hosts Lizzie and Angus were extremely helpful in arranging all we could hope for in terms of lift passes, lunch bookings and more. Lots of nice small touches like chocolate in the boot room too. As with anywhere in zermatt you can’t be close to the lifts of both main mountains but the location here worked well for us even with young children, helped by the free ski lockers all over the ski area. Strongly recommended.
Thank you James. It is really nice to know that your stay with us enhanced your experience of your first trip to Zermatt and I am so pleased that you are planning to come back next season - and your feedback about the way the village sits "in the middle" with the main lift networks at either end is spot on - because I think that sometimes "on paper" that can seem difficult to navigate so I am sure it will help other guests to know that it is do-able!
We will look forward to welcoming you back next season and best wishes to you all until then, Lizzie and Angus
Amazing apartment in fantastic location!
We had the most fantastic stay at Le Petit! The apartment is fully furnished with amazingly comfortable beds, great shower and a fully equipped kitchen. We couldn’t have wanted for anything else in an apartment during our time in Zermatt. Lizzie was easy to communicate with and had our ski passes waiting for us when we arrived which was a great help. We would 100% stay here again if we visit Zermatt again and have to mention the most delicious lemon cake Lizzie made!
Oh thank you Georgy - how nice! I am so glad you like Le Petit and that it was a comfortable base for your first trip to Zermatt.
It was lovely to meet you and I know that Angus was sorry that he missed you all - but hopefully there will be a next time so please let us know if you are ever headed back our way and I will make sure there is a lemon cake waiting for you! Very best wishes for the rest of 2018, Lizzie
Lizzie was a great Host. Nice quiet, cozy place. Great views.
The two bedroom place is very nicely decorated and cozy. It's nice and quiet and close to everything. Lizzie ensures that you get safely to the unit, provided a few unexpected perks, and makes sure you feel comfortable in Zermatt. Wonderful
Marvelous stay at Chez Nous
Chez Nous is a wonderful condo -- beautifully furnished and maintained and it is well situated in the village. Lizzie served as a superb concierge for us letting us know which train tickets to purchase, setting up a ski guide, giving us great recommendations for ski rental, etc. She also had fresh tea bread prepared for us and even had the frig stocked with orange juice, milk and butter upon our arrival. Chez Nous was an excellent value and gave our family of four space to stretch out after three amazing days of skiing at Zermatt. We are very picky when it comes to lodging, and Chez Nous definitely lived up to our expectations -- actually, it surpassed them. Highly recommend -- would definitely stay here again.
Thank you Deanna - I am so glad that you all enjoyed your stay in Zermatt and that Chez Nous delivered on its promise after all our exchanges before you arrived. I know how hard it can sometimes be to sift through potential places to stay and you always wonder whether they will actually be as they are described so it means a lot to know that we exceeded expectations. Thank you! And I do hope that we will be able to welcome you back to Zermatt at some stage but in the meantime very best wishes to you all as we head in to spring and summer. Lizzie
Wonderful stay in Zermatt
Lizzie met us at the train station and escorted us to an absolutely wonderful apartment. It was well represented in the website and even better in person. Clean, comfortable, quite and in a great location. I highly recommend a stay w/ Lizzie in Zermatt.
Thank you for taking the time to do a review for us Dave - it was lovely to have you all with us and I'm so glad that you the apartment lived up to expectations. It would be lovely to see you all in back in Zermatt at some stage and in the meantime many congratulations on your Matterhorn ascent this summer. Best wishes, 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.
