Zen Penthouse / Self-Catered Chalet in Zermatt
Sleeps up to 6
The Zen Penthouse is our Zermatt property with the best location for skiing. It is next to the bridge leading to the Matterhorn Express base lift, so you are just 2 minutes away from the main lift for skiing. And at the end of the day you can ski back to within 10 metres of the front door. Nonetheless, the church square, which is the heart of the car-free village of Zermatt, is just a five minute stroll away.
The penthouse is on the third (top) floor of a chalet, and has direct lift access with a private key. The apartment consists of 3 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and is immaculately appointed in a luxuriously retro style. The living / dining room features a sculptural RubyFires fireplace (which runs on easy to light bio-ethanol gel), a generous U-shaped sofa on a raised podium, a stunning modern portrait painting by Sara Landau, a wonderful Matterhorn landscape by Royal Academician Edward Harrison Compton, and Zermatt's biggest giant teddy-bear!
There is wall to wall carpeting throughout, which is so lovely on the feet, while all the walls are finished in lustrous Savoy silk wallcovering. The kitchen is open-plan, with all the requisite facilities of course, and is delimited by a bar with high stools, which makes cooking so much more convivial. All the ceilings are sloping, wooden and beamed to give you that authentic chalet feel and there is the obligatory south facing balcony with Matterhorn views.
The master bedroom gives onto the south facing balcony. It is very spacious, with a study area, a dressing table and an en-suite bathroom, which has a double size jacuzzi bathtub perfect for two, as well as two sinks, a shower and a W/C.
The two other bedrooms have flexible beds which can be configured as doubles or twins. They share the bathroom in-between, which has a bath, separate shower, and W/C. All three bedrooms have generous amounts of wardrobe space, whose interiors light up when you open the door. In addition you have your own utility room with a washing maching, tumble dryer and ironing board.
In a nutshell: stylish, luxurious, convenient and practical, it has everything that you need for a wonderful holiday.
