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.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
There are not enough wonderful things to say about Lizzie, Martin, Angus or the apartment!! Everything was perfect! Nothing could have made it a better experience! Thank you!!
Excellent stay at Chez Nous apartment
We spent 5 nights at one of the 3-bedroom apartments. What a treat!! This was probably THE nicest apartment we ever rented (in the same price class). It is beautifully and comfortably furnished, all the little details one enjoys were thought of. Bedding and pillows were very comfortable, the good reading lights were a plus. The kitchen was well appointed (including fondue pot and utensils), though we only cooked breakfast, except for one night when we enjoyed a fondue for dinner on the balcony. Upon arrival, we found fruit, milk, wine, chocolates, tea, coffee, sugar, and even some spices. These extras are rarely provided in the US. TV and sound system were superb, hiking maps were available, there was nothing we were lacking. The location is excellent with view of the Matterhorn, as shown in the photos. The building and surroundings were very quiet, a wonderful place to relax. Excellent location close to all the activities on main street (restaurants, bakeries, stores, mountain train, gondolas), all within walking distance. We spent 4 days hiking which was superb. We will come back to Zermatt and Chez Nous will be our first choice for lodging. We even met Lizzie and her husband, the most friendly and inviting people. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!! I would like to give a rating of 6 starts.
Perfect Apartment in Zermatt
My husband and I stayed in the Chez Nous apartment for a few nights in May with family and it was perfect. Lizzie and Martin were extremely helpful and informative with everything from directions to recommendations. The apartment as fully stocked with everything we needed and more! We were able to cook our own meals in the incredible kitchen and eat them while looking at the Matterhorn. We highly reccommend this beautiful apartment and can't wait to be back!
Oh thank you Claire - what a lovely review!
I am so pleased that you all had a good time and that you were able to share the Matterhorn with your family and that our apartment was a good place to do that from. We try our best to make sure that everything is in stock so that you can enjoy your time without worry and we are very lucky that Martin is on site to help.
I do hope that we will be able to welcome you back and best wishes to you for the rest of 2019, Lizzie
A fantastic family holiday destination
We had a wonderful skiing holiday with Chez Nous Zermatt. Lizzie could not have been more helpful: before our arrival she organised our train tickets from Zurich, booked our ski guide, restaurants, ski passes and homemade food deliveries to the apartment. The apartment was great - very comfortable and it had everything we could possibly need, and the views were stunning! It was also very well located and we could walk everywhere. We loved our week in Zermatt with Chez Nous and we will definitely go back!
Oh thank you Alice - it was lovely to have you all with us and to see
you enjoying what Zermatt has to offer (for walkers as well as skiers!) and I am glad that Chez Nous was a comfortable base for you all. I hope we will be able to welcome you back to us and to Zermatt and very best wishes to you all in the meantime, Lizzie
A wonderful week in Zermatt at Chez Nous
We had a fantastic week in Zermatt staying at Le Corbassiere apartment with Chez Nous. Angus & Lizzie were the most perfect hosts - with excellent communication and help both before we arrived and during our trip. The apartment itself is lovely - a real home away from home. Superbly well appointed and comfortable with the most fantastic view of the town and Matterhorn. We would most certainly recommend both the apartment and Chez Nous to anyone wishing to stay in Zermatt.
Thank you so much for taking the time to do a review of your stay Melissa. It was lovely to have you all with us and i hope that we will be able to welcome you back again - in the meantime very best wishes to you all, Lizzie and Angus
Views, comfort, clean and cozy
Lizzie and Angus are wonderful sources of local knowledge and tips. They are gracious and professional hosts. We had an amazing holiday in Zermatt and thoroughly enjoyed staying at their place. The flat is both exceptionally comfortable and well set up and has a wonderful view of the Matterhorn.
It was lovely to return after a day of skiing to the flat and its location made it easy to take advantage of Zermatt's restaurants and nightlife. Lizzie and Angus' thoughtfulness and insights made our stay all that more pleasurable.
Dear Mulan - thank you so much for taking the time to do a review of your stay. It really helps future guests to know what existing ones really thought instead of simply relying on what we say!
It was lovely to have you with us and I hope that we will be able to welcome you back in the future.
Best wishes, 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.
