Wonderful apartment with amazing Matterhorn views

  • 5 of 5

Chalet Altesse is a modern, beautiful apartment located in the Winkelmatten area of Zermatt (closest to the Matterhorn). As such, all four apartments have stunning, uninterrupted views of the Matterhorn from the lounge / dining area.

We stayed in the penthouse for 2 weeks during August 2009 having previously stayed in the Mont Cervin Palace (5*) and Monte Rosa (4*) hotels the previous 2 years. With 2 children under 10 we chose an apartment to get more space and to have the option to cook. However, we didn't want to compromise on quality. We clearly love Zermatt, which is a great summer holiday destination for our energetic / active kids. It is also car free (except for small electric vehicles / taxis used by local businesses / hotels). We have re-booked the Altesse for another two weeks this year.

The Altesse is a 10 minute taxi ride from the train station / centre of Zermatt and a 20 minute walk to the resort centre for shops, larger supermarkets and many restaurants. If you have a lift pass the local buses are free and there is a stop a few minutes from the apartment, which is also near a local supermarket and kids playground.

The penthouse has vaulted wooden ceilings. The lounge / dining room area faces the Matterhorn through floor to ceiling windows (same for other apartments). I can't think of a better view for breakfast! The kitchen is very well equipped.

The apartment is maintained to a high standard and was immaculately clean. It is also cleaned mid-week. It has a flat screen TV, DVD and CD player, which is good for a family with young children.

The lounge has a log fire and a full length balcony to admire the view / catch some sun. The star filled night skies are amazing and we even saw some shooting stars.

The property is managed by the owners' daughter, Julia, who is wonderful: very friendly, attentive and helpful. She even arranged a birthday cake to be made in Zermatt for our son and for it to be delivered to the apartment.

For adults the building has a large sauna, steam room and relaxation area in the basement.

The chalet has a lift which takes you to the sauna and ski room in the basement.

Summer activities for kids: try the nearby tree top adventure park (harnesses supplied) including zip wire rides over the river; scooter rides down the ski runs; and walks. We climb with a guide. A must do is the gorge trip (guide needed).

Restaurants: Zum See - amazing (Altesse's owners). The nearby Sonnmatten is good.

Excellent and modern vacation property

  • 5 of 5

It is a very modern and comfortable chalet consisting of just 4 superb apartments.

The property is extremely clean and well kept. It is ideally planned and equipped (there are sauna, lift, ski boots dryer machine, ski room, etc.)

We liked a lot the perfect view of Matterhorn you can enjoy all day long and very warm fire place in the living room so good to enjoy some wine in the evening!

The location of the chalet is a bit away from the village but was perfect for us as we like to be surrounded by tranquil forest and not have noise and disturbances of the village centre. You can see even the deers in the morning coming close to the house!

We can recommend Chalet Altesse to anyone looking for a perfect ski vacation in Zermatt with a family or friends.

Car: not necessary

The Chalet is located within Winkelmatten, a very quiet residential area within easy access of the town centre. The village can be reached by bus within 10 minutes or by foot within 15 to 20 minutes. The Chalet benefits of a very natural surrounding, next to a river and beautiful forest. In Winkelmatten there is a little grocery store for essential shopping (approx. 5 min. walk), a playground, gourmet restaurant and a little chapel. The perfect environment for a sportive and relaxing holiday. Ski in an out depending on snow conditions.

Other Activities: Sledding

Ski: The apartment is perfectly located for your ski holidays. Snow permitting you can ski-in and out from the apartment. Located approximately 5 minutes (by ski) to the lifts that take you up to Furri, for Klein Matterhorn and Cervinia. Or you can reach the connecting cable car from Furri to Riffelalp in order to reach the Gornergrat ski area. In the basement of the Chalet, a ski room is provided with ski boot heaters. For the foodies, Zermatt is the perfect destination. Approximately 40 mountain restaurants provide excellent food on the slopes.
