Chalet Schipfa

  • Free-Standing Wooden Chalet
  • Authentically Swiss
  • Overlooking the Heart of Zermatt
  • 4 bedrooms
  • Sleeps 8

In our portfolio from Winter 2020, a free-standing chalet in Zermatt is a luxury, and self-catered ski chalet Schipfa is the quintessential Swiss chalet, traditionally built of wood with wooden ceilings and extensive wood panelling inside on the all the walls. It is bathed in sunshine and light with its extensive windows throughout and radiates a warm welcoming atmosphere. There are four double bedrooms, three bathrooms, a sauna, and three different sunny terraces with great views over both the Zermatt village and the Matterhorn. It’s the perfect retreat – Schipfa means shelter in the local Zermatt dialect.

The chalet is very centrally located, perched on a hill overlooking the main church and street. Due to its elevated position it is accessed by a relatively steep path: from the main street it’s a climb of 24 vertical metres with a distance of 290m. There is no lift access, however the nearest taxi drop-off point is next to the English Church which reduces the climb to 15 vertical metres. That is why we recommend this chalet for guests who are sporty and fit, it is not suitable for the elderly or toddlers.

Guest Reviews

Beautiful chalet with direct view to the Matterhorn. The walk up to the chalet is steep and takes about 8 minutes from the centre of town, but the views are worth it.

This place was absolutely incredible. It was comfortable, clean, and the views were unreal. The hike up was no joke, but we enjoyed the exercise. We hope to be back soon!

The chalet was exceptional and we had so much fun. Communication and service were exceptional throughout the trip!
