I have been going to Zermatt for over 20 years and have definitely fallen under its spell. The mighty Matterhorn towering above the little village can leave no one indifferent. I bought my first property in in Zermatt in 1994 and this is where I live now in winter. In summer I alternate between Zermatt and Geneva where i have lived for many years. My hometown was Wimbledon and I still manage to get back there on the special occasion that takes place at the end of June/beginning of July.
Ann purchased this Apartment in 2003
Why Ann chose Täsch
I acquired the Gornerwald property in 2003 when the estate agent told me of a proposal to build a lift from Furi to Riffelberg. This effectively was the missing link to connect up the whole area in both directions from the departure station of the Matterhorn Express, which is just 100 meters from the apartment.
What makes this Apartment unique
In less than 5 minutes in ski boots you can be on your way to Italy, or the Gornergrat area or all the way over to Sunnegga...just depends where the best snow is!
Tip top apartment
Lucky to find this super place, convenient for the Klein Matterhorn lifts and an easy stroll to the village Centre. Generous living space for 4 people, and fully equipped. Three of us were there for a very very snowy week, and couldn’t fault it, despite being pretty much “confined to barracks”for 3 days because of exceptional snow and avalanche risks!
Thank you for the review. Glad you had a good time during the snowiest week I can remember in Zermatt, and look forward to seeing you back soon.
Perfect Location in Zermatt
This condo has everything you need to enjoy your time in Zermatt. When the clouds part and the Matterhorn shows itself, the view is framed perfectly with the valley on each side of it. As a skier, you can't really get any closer to the lifts. Great restaurants are within a short walk and that walk is needed to work off the great food found in the area. Although we didn't get to meet Ann personally, she did check in on us to make sure we had everything we needed and invited us out to an event that we were too exhausted to attend from our outdoor activities. I highly recommend this VRBO and Ann's hospitality.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review about the condo... really happy you appreciated all it has to offer.
Great location and super accommodation
All went really well thank you. A couple of trees being cut down would improve the view of the Matterhorn from the balcony!! and a subscription to Netflix (or similar) would have been helpful during the thunderstorms! Other than these very minor wishes we had a super time thank you, would recommend the apartment whole-heartedly and would like to return one day.
So glad you had a good time and enjoyed the apartment. Look forward to welcoming you back.
perfect quiet location
This well organized, well equipped apartment is in an ideal location for my family. Just a short easy walk to town center and the cable car yet away from the busy streets. We spent much of our time (and took lots of pictures) on the large deck that overlooks the town and with a view of the Matterhorn. The host, Ann, could not have been more helpful, steering us to several of Zermatt's finest mountainside restaurants. She provides a very helpful "insiders" guide to Zermatt in a notebook in the apartment. Our routine was fresh croissants from the bakery down the street to start the day, followed by a pleasant hike up the mountain trails to a restaurant with a glorious view, enjoy a fine leisurely lunch and either hike down or ride the train or cable car back to town with a stop at Coop or Migros for dinner supplies. Internet via wifi worked fine throughout, including outside on the deck. There was a large tv with many English channels. We found this apartment to be perfect for my wife and I and our 10 year old son. Highly recommended.
Thank you so much for the review and glad you enjoyed your stay, and my recommendations!
Perfect apartment in the most beautiful ski resort in the world
Lovely, well equipped apartment in a great location for quick access to Klein Matterhorn lifts (5 min walk) and an easy 10-15 min walk into town. Ann, our hostess, was very accommodating, thanks for the coffee, wine and beautiful welcome tulips. Stunning views of the Matterhorn, what better way to end a day of fab skiing, than a beer and a view sitting on the sunny balcony. We'll be back, thank you
Thank you so much for the great review, glad Gornerwald ticked all the boxes for you and look forward to seeing you again soon.
Clean, spacious, well equipped flat with great views and easy ski access
We went as a family of 4 adults, 2 of which did not ski (I broke my foot 3 weeks before the holiday!). The flat suited us perfectly, the location for skiing is perfect and yet within very easy walking distance from the village. It is quiet, and has stunning views. It does not get much sun in the winter but it does get the end of day sun and if you're out skiing all day it really doesn't matter. I highly recommend this property and hope to be able to go there again myself.
Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review and so glad you liked the apartment and have recommended it to others.
