Sleeps up to 8 ‐ available catered or self catered
Chalets Castor is one of our four unique - and very rare - Zermatt residences (our Chalet Gemini, Chalet Pollux and Chalet Ibron being the others): a luxurious freestanding three storey independent chalet with 4 bedrooms, large enough for groups or families of eight. Its location provides the best of both worlds: spectacular views and easy access. Side by side, tucked against a beautiful hillside, the numerous balconies and large terraces give you bird's eye views of the village and the surrounding mountains, encompassing all three of Zermatt's ski areas. Yet access is easy: 200m from the Matterhorn Express base lift station and resort run there is a street level tunnel which leads you to a lift (elevator) built inside the mountain, from the top of which there is a gentle 2 minute walk to the property. Skis and boots can be left in the tunnel's ski-room. Although it does not have a Matterhorn view, the chalet is bathed in sun as soon as it emerges. Chalet Pollux is immediately adjacent to Chalet Castor which is its mirror image and also sleeps 8.
This chalet has been tastefully decorated under the supervision of Mountain Exposure, delicately combining an alpine, cosy and contemporary finish, with liberal use of wood and stone. It has all the latest technology with flat-screen TVs, more than a hundred satellite channels, a fireplace and geothermal heating to reduce the chalet's carbon foot-print as much as possible.
The chalet enjoys the use of its own unique private outdoor hot-tub surrounded by snow (in the winter), perfect to relax and enjoy the view (or the stars) after a long day in the mountains.
Castor is a rare gem; a large freestanding chalet in Zermatt which has been conceived to meet your needs and wishes to the fullest possible extent.
Castor is part of our chalet group called Les Perles. These four chalets can be combined and depending on the size of the group will host up to 16, 18, 24, 26 or 34 guests.
