Lovely spot overlooking a stream and excellent location for hiking. But with some complications.

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was well equipped for cooking, but no microwave or dishwasher. The listing said 'simple soaps' provided, but no soap for the shower which brings up one of the complications - the convenient store in Winkelmatten is now closed. So that meant another trip down to Zermatt just for soap. (We had already completed our shopping!). The furnishings were comfortable and lots of closets. But there are 63 steps in and out of the unit!! Connecting to the Internet was also very complicated. We had to make two visits to the Swisscom outlet (Electro Imboden) in Zermatt before it would work - the staff had to call a Swisscom hotline to connect. Last issue - could not find a hair dryer and it's often very cold to go out with wet hair in Zermatt! This was our 6th trip to Winkelmatten and we absolutely love this village!! All the hiking trails pass through the village. The bus system does work well, but on a limited schedule in summer. The washer/dryer in the building took a lot of persistence to figure out its operation - even with Google translate. One step not listed on the instructions is to pull out the settings knob to start the dryer. The owner is always responsive, but not always able to assist. Overall we had a wonderful journey, but it's now more difficult without the convenience store.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry for these difficulties you have had. A hair dryer is in the bathroom in the drawer under the washbasin. Perhaps we should have a look for a microwave, but the kitchen is not that big for lots of equipment. We hope, that the little shop will open again soon.

Wonderful Winkelmatten

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here a week and found we enjoyed staying slightly out from the centre of Zermatt. Winkelmatten has a secluded feel, like a small village and no distance to your first hill! We loved the apartment and were grateful for one wet day as that meant we could enjoy a "read and relaxation" day. The apartment is very nicely furnished and with all the cooking utensils one could ask for.

Perfect apartment to escape the fray.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed four nights in Zermatt on our second visit. We come to walk and ride the lifts/cog trains to enjoy what we feel is some of the most magnificent scenery on earth. We were looking for an apartment where we could nest, cook, and relax away from the more touristed aspects of the busy town. We could not have been happier.

The flat backs up to the Findelbach, a stream whose sounds of rushing water fills the apartment. Tree flank the stream, and although they block the mountain, they give a feeing of isolation hard to find in crowded Zermatt. Located in Winkelmatten, we had a 20+ minute walk uphill from the train or grocery store, but a bus stop is near, and the cable car to Klein Matterhorn is just ten minutes down a steep lane.

The apartment is spotless, roomy, well equipped, and well laid out. A large balcony wraps around, and windows fill the bedroom and living area walls--opening up to trees and stream.

Next time, well stay a week.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your detailed description of our apartment and for the amazing review! We are happy, that you enjoyed your short stay. The view to the mountain is only possible from November to end of may when the trees are without leaves.

Could not have been happier.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this apartment in February/March 2011, and could not have been happier. The apartment is located in a lovely position, very peaceful and with beautiful views, yet an easy walk to the Klein Matterhorn lift (provided you leave your skis and boots locked in the facilities provided at that station – there is a modest daily charge – and walk up and down in snow boots). There is a ski bus, but it is sometimes full in the mornings, and in any event we found the walk, with the stunning views, refreshing both morning and evening.

The apartment is spacious, comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean; two particularly appealing features for us were the bath and the balcony. There is a good TV, with over 100 cable stations in a variety of languages – including Sky News. The heating is excellent and the beds (and pillows – often a disappointment elsewhere!) and the sofa/armchair were all very comfortable, and the kitchen & associated equipment top class.

There is a very good Mini Market shop nearby (their bread, especially the brown sunflower loaf, is delicious), and the 2 main supermarkets in the centre of Zermatt (easily accessible by ski bus) are extremely well stocked and surprisingly (for Zermatt!) reasonably priced.

All in all, we would give this apartment a rating of 5 out of 5, and have already booked to return next year. Our dealings with the owner Doerte were particularly pleasant, as no request for information was too much trouble, and the arrangements re collection of key, access to and departure from the apartment were exactly as advised and trouble free. Highly recommended.

Erholung pur

  • 5 of 5

Himmlische Ruhe, traumhafte Umgebung, schöne Wohnung direkt am Bach. Beim Frühstück könnten wir die Eichhörnchen beobachten. Natur pur.

Sehr schön gelegenes Haus. Durch die Busverbindung schnell im Dorf und bei den Gondeln, Gornergratbahn oder Sunnegga. Für einen ruhigen Urlaub bestens geeignet.

Owner's Response: Herzlichen Dank für diese passende Beschreibung! Die Eichhörnchen sind wirklich immer ein Hingucker, auch vom Bett aus kann man ihre munteren Sprünge beobachten.
