In our portfolio from Winter 2020, free-standing Zermatt luxury 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.

You enter the main / upper floor which contains the very spacious living room, leading to a generous kitchen with two separate sinks and work surfaces and an island. The dining alcove is at the side of the kitchen, it is both convenient and separate and most of all spacious. There are two terraces, one running along the width of the chalet, a great sun-trap overlooking the village, and another one facing the Matterhorn with a lunch table. This main floor also has one bedroom and one bathroom with W/C and shower.

A staircase leads to the lower floor where the other three bedrooms are located. These consist of a spacious master bedroom, a twin-bed room and another double bedroom, all of which give onto the wide lower terrace overlooking the village. There are two bathrooms, one with a bath-tub, shower and W/C; the other with a shower, W/C and washing machine. The sauna is also located on this floor.
