Zermatt luxury catered or self-catered Chalet Penthouse Carmen is our duplex attic apartment located in Casa Vanessa which is perched on a hilltop, yet very easy to get to. This is one of our favourite holiday home because of its warm country farmhouse feel.

Access is very convenient via a tunnel lift which is 200 metres away from the Matterhorn Express base station and, in winter, the end point of the main resort ski run. The church square with its boutiques and restaurants is just five minutes away in the other direction.

With its sloping wooden ceilings and extensive panelling, this cosy duplex attic chalet apartment offers 4 double bedrooms and 3 bathrooms (two were completely renovated in 2020).

Guest Reviews

Our stay at Chalet Carmen so wonderful! Everyone we dealt with at Mountain Exposure, Bronagh, Liv and Syrago, were so helpful and accommodating in every way! The chalet was perfect for our family of 4 and had everything we could need. We especially appreciated the food items left for us to get us through until we had a chance to get to the grocery store!  

Beautiful scenery! The concierge, Liv has provided great service before and during our stay. The unit is well stocked and maintained. Truly enjoyed our stay!

The chalet was perfect for all our needs - plenty of cupboard space in the bedrooms, a well equipped kitchen. Comfortable beds and smart bathrooms. The spa was an added bonus. Lovely warm boots every morning too

This was our second stay in Chalet Carmen and it was as lovely as we remembered. Perfectly placed in Zermatt near the lift station and close to the shops it is in an ideal location. It has benefited from new bathrooms and balcony which are all great improvements. The staff in the Mountain Exposure office are so friendly and helpful.

Very nice location close to the lift. Close enough to the city centre with pieces of the old houses still intact. Rooms, bathrooms in perfect condition. Very much enjoyed also the service from the local agency. They really took care of us with a warm welcome. Perfect!

We have stayed in Chalet Carmen before, it is great, and as always the team is super friendly and very efficient. We had a wonderful holiday.

Konstantinos was great and helpful. Our holiday in Chalet Carmen was 10 out of 10.

Chalet Carmen was excellent and the catering was outstanding. Everyone we dealt with was professional and helpful. 10 out of 10.

The accommodation was good and the communication with Hugh and the rest of the team was great. We had a very good holiday.

In Chalet Carmen everything was excellent. Kostas was a star! Every question was answered very quickly. We would highly recommend Mountain Exposure. Everything was very convenient and Mountain Exposure team was always very responsive! Thank you!
