Absolutely Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

If I could give higher than 5 stars I would!

Old House Zermatt is wonderful! The historic and convenient location is such a treat. The apartment is beautiful; clean, charming and fully equipped. It is everything it promised to be and more. Marcus has thought through every detail, from transportation to and from the train station to restaurant recommendations. We enjoyed every minute of our vacation. Thank you Marcus!

Charming Home & Owner

  • 5 of 5

The Old House Zermatt is a charming, beautifully kept home in a central location in Zermatt. This house made our trip complete along with a personal visit from the owner Marcus who gave us many good tips of must-see and do things in Zermatt. We enjoyed the hike down from the Gornergrat to ZumSee restaurant and the hike to Trift. We hope to come back!!

A Perfect House in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Just finished a five-night hiking holiday at "The Old House" with three of my adult children. The house is very well appointed, in a perfect location in the village center, and is full of old world charm. It is the quintessential Swiss Alps house with all the modern conveniences. The owner met us at the train station, which is only a five-minute walk from the house, and gave us a thorough overview of the house and its history. In every respect, The Old House itself was a significant and very positive element of our hiking holiday. I have no reservations in recommending it to anyone contemplating a visit to Zermatt and who is looking for a thoroughly modern "old world" living experience. I will certainly time my next visit to Zermatt around its availability.

I can't speak more highly of the Old Home. What a treat! This property is exactly as depicted - high end fittings and fixtures, beautiful kitchen a delight to prepare banquets. Extremely clean and comfortable. We even managed to squeeze an one extra child. We had the holiday of a life time. The snow was perfect, the weather clear every day. Our host, Marcus, was so helpful and concerned about our enjoyment and the ease of our arrival, he also gave us extremely helpful local tips about ski hire etc. Central location is excellent, close to main drag, supermarket, shops, everything. We are already planning our next visit. I would recommend this apartment to anybody who enjoys freedom, luxury, ease and a little privacy. Very high standard holiday accommodation. thanks Marcus from Lisa, Richard, Sophie, Simon and Fabian.
