About Lizzie Orange
We (Lizzie Orange and Angus Potter) have been living and working in Zermatt since 2007 and Angus has been skiing here since he was 9 years old. We met here and, having left our 'London lives' behind, decided that setting up Chez Nous was a way to combine our skills and offer our guests something a little personal. Family commitments mean that we now divide our time between the UK and Zermatt but we have a small concierge team on the ground here who know Zermatt well and between us we will make sure you are well looked after during your stay.
Lizzie Orange purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Lizzie Orange chose Zermatt
Initially we ran a small b&b from our own apartment but we now have 4 apartments in this building (the Swiss laws re. foreigners buying property allowed us to buy one and lease the others) and as from Winter 2018/19, Chez Nous has 4 apartments to rent: The Corbassiere which sleeps 6 on the 3rd floor, The Mischabel which sleeps 6-8 on the 2nd floor, Le Petit which sleeps 4 on the 1st floor and now L'Etoile a 1 bedroomed apartment also on the 1st floor next to Le Petit. We offer our guests the freedom of a self-catered holiday combined with the feel and warmth of staying in someone else's home. We have completely re-furnished the flats to create an atmosphere that aims to make you feel at home from the moment you walk in.
What makes this Apartment unique
Our apartments are definitely more than just "a rental"; we have created an atmosphere of "home" in all of them and they are filled with lots of the personal touches that we appreciate in places we stay and want to offer our guests. Our building sits right in the centre of the village but is unique in still having a small field in front of it which sets off the view of The Matterhorn in spectacular fashion.

Mind Blowing apartment
Our favorite property in Switzerland! We absolutely loved the property. Extremely well furnished - top of the line and very well thought off. Infact we have taken tips on how to furnish our house, after seeing this property. Great view of the matterhorn from the building, 10-15 min from the centre of town. Only con is the approach to the apartment, especially when you are checking out, you need to carry the luggage over a lot of steps.
We will return in a heartbeat to this property, it was absolutely brilliant and the family had an absolute blast in the property. Thanks a lot.
Sorry for my rather slow reply but thank you so much for taking the time to do a review and I am delighted that our place topped the bill of places you stayed in Switzerland and that you took some inspiration from it. I am in the middle of trying to get Chez Nous London set up and feeling rather over-whelmed by the decoration decisions so your positive feedback has buoyed me up - thank you!
Hope that we may be able to welcome you back some time.
Best wishes, lizzie
I’d give it 6 stars if I could
Simply world class experience from start to finish. Excellent communication with the property owner as well as her property manager/in-town contact who picked us up at the train and gave us the ins and outs of the apartment and the town. The apartment was extremely well appointed and equipped with an amazing attention to detail. And the location was amazing, private and quiet but with quick access to downtown. I really cannot say enough good things about our experience at Chez Nous Zermatt. Just book it, you won’t regret it.
Very nice appartment, great location and very well equiped!!
Fantastic!!! Lizzie hospitality and attention to details made a big impact too!!! I do recomend this apartment!!! No criticism of any type. By far one of my best
Hi Manuel - hope that you are both safely back home and thank you so much for doing a review so quickly and without even being asked! I am so pleased that you liked what we have done in L'Etoile (particularly because you can compare with other places that you have stayed in Zermatt). It is lovely to know that the effort we have made has been appreciated and I hope that we will be able to welcome you back next year!
Best wishes for the rest of 2019, Lizzie
Well appointed apartment. Beautiful done.
Great place to stay. Centrally located in village of Zermatt. Well equipped kitchen. Beautiful linens and comfortable beds.
Thank you for making the time to do a review of your stay with us - much appreciated and it really helps other guests to get a better feel for what the apartment is like. I am so glad you liked L'Etoile and hope that we may be able to welcome you back to Zermatt at some stage.
Hope the rest of your year goes well.
Best wishes, Lizzie
Wunderbare Wohnung mit Matterhornblick
Wir hatten eine sehr geschmackvoll und bestens ausgestattete Wohnung. Lizzy upgraded uns ohne Mehrkosten ineinander größere Wohnung.
Beste Lage in Zermatt, ruhig und zentral mit wunderschönem Blick auf den Berg der Berge. Wir haben es genossen und werden gern wiederkommen.
Thank you so much for taking the time to do a review of your stay and I am so pleased that you appreciated the apartment and its location. We feel very lucky to be so central and yet have the space around our building to able to breathe and enjoy the view. I hope that we will be able to welcome you back!
Best wishes, Lizzie
Luxurios und es fehlte an nichts:)
Die Ausstattung ist in den Nasszellen sowie in der Küche ist vollumfänglich. Sogar Bademäntel waren vorhanden. Zum Kochen standen neben Salz und Pfeffer, auch weitere Gewürze zur Verfügung. Man wird am Bahnhof abgeholt und in die Wohnung begleitet.
Vielen Dank an die Vermieterin, auch mit Ihrem Stellvertreter hat alles funktioniert. => 5+ Sterne
Dear Edith and Markus
Apologies that this response is not in German (think it will make more sense in English because my German is really not good enough I am afraid) - but thank you so much for such a generous review and I am really pleased that felt you had a 5* experience staying our apartment. We try hard to make sure they feel more like a home than a rental so it is so nice to know you appreciated that.
Best wishes to you both for the rest of the summer and hope we will be able to welcome you back soon. Lizzie
Zermatt deserves its reputation as one of the world's best mountain resorts - there is a magical quality to it all year round.
The Klein Matterhorn cable car is the highest cable car in Europe (3,883m at the summit) and on a clear day gives you simply breathtaking views out towards Mont Blanc and its surrounding peaks. Alternatively start your day on the Gornergrat railway which originally opened in 1898 and is the second highest railway in Europe (after the Jungfrau) - a great feat of Swiss engineering. From the top of Gornergrat you get a sweeping panorama of 29 'four thousanders' (mountains over 4,000m) including the Monte Rosa which is the highest mountain in Switzerland.
In the winter your lift pass covers the Zermatt and Cervinia and includes some 360km of marked runs but if that isn't enough you can also ice skate, sledge, hike, snow shoe, try curling or simply swim and relax in one of the village hotel's wonderful wellness areas.
In the summer there is glorious hiking, climbing, a fun park for the children, cycling, tennis, squash, paragliding and plenty of places to have a picnic by a lake.
At any time of year Zermatt has something to offer and its mountain restaurants are second to none in the Alps so the gourmet will not be disappointed either.
