Property type villa

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4.0 Bathrooms, 8 Sleeps (SELF CATERED)

Youve come to the right place if you are looking for unique ski chalets in Switzerland. Chalet Castor is a luxurious three-story chalet that boasts spectacular views, and an enviable location only 200 meters (220 yards) from the Matterhorn Express base lift station.

Tucked against a beautiful hillside and bathed in morning sun, the balconies and terraces provide panoramic views of the Zermatt village and surrounding mountains. After a day of fun on the slopes, come back to Chalet Castor and breathe in the mountain air while you soak in the private hot tub.

Custom stone walls are sure to impress. The wood and stone together create an elegant yet cozy alpine feel, while geothermal heating helps to reduce the chalets carbon footprint. For a relaxing night in, there are flat-screen TVs and 100+ satellite channels, or unplug completely and relax by the flickering light of the wood stove.

Four double bedrooms comfortably sleep eight, with two bedrooms on both the first and second floors. Each of the bedrooms sports plush duvets and bathrobes, an en-suite bathroom, satellite TV and DVD player. The beds can be configured as twins or combined, based on your groups request. Three of the bedrooms also play host to a private balcony.

The Matterhorn Express base lift station and resort run provides a street level tunnel which promptly leads you to an elevator built inside the mountain. From the elevator it is a two minute walk to the property. Leave your skis and boots in the tunnels ski room. Indulgent catered options are available including breakfast, afternoon tea, canaps and gourmet dinners; ask your villa specialist for details. For larger groups, the immediately adjacent

Chalet Pollux and

Chalet Gemini, also available through Luxury Retreats.
