Backstage Loft / Serviced Chalet in Zermatt
Sleeps up to 10 ‐ available catered or self-catered
This free-standing chalet is Heinz Julen's latest creation. It sleeps 10 in five double bedrooms with a generous indoor area of 371m2 and outdoor terraces totalling 166m2. The chalets's location is very close to the Matterhorn Express base lift station, and you can easily ski right back to the door of the ski-room. The centre of the village is a short 5 minute walk along the main pedestrian street.
The design will be an up to date version of Heinz's inimitable style, it combines old wood with new, steel with glass, slate with concrete, ingenuity with art, design with intelligence and is in a nutshell a uniquely brilliant architectural achievement.
The main floor is where the main entrance is situated, giving on to the street which leads to the church square. There is bedroom on the one side of the hall, with en-suite bathroom with shower and W/C. You then enter the main living area with it's double height ceiling and view toward the Matterhorn. This is a large open plan space with a fireplace, dining area, kitchen, sitting area and indoor/outdoor jacuzzi, which leads onto a biotope terrace.
Also on this level is the top bedroom in the historic Mazot (Stadel) converted hut. Definitely the most extraordinary bedroom in Zermatt, it is like a glass cube set inside the 500 year old rough wooden walls of the hut, enabling you to see all the ancient features, while being in a warm and protected environment. The sixth bedroom is the one under this one, also set in the historic hut. Both have their own bathrooms with showers and W/C.
A staircase leads from the main floor to the top floor, with two more double bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms with showers and W/C's.
Two floors below is where you access the two bedrooms in the hut, and also where the wellness is located, with a sauna, steam bath and shower and W/C.
And finally, on the riverside level, you will find a large cinema room which can be used as a playroom too, and there is a fitness room. The ski-room is adjacent to the staff bedrooms which are on this floor, and the floor above.
Levels 1-3 are all serviced by an internal elevator.
Without doubt the most spectacular free-standing chalet in Zermatt!
