Zermatt luxury catered or self-catered Chalet Heinz Julen Loft is without doubt the most spectacular property in Zermatt, if not the Alps. A huge 300 sqm Manhattan style loft set in a wooden chalet in the Swiss Alps; it combines acres of glass, steel, textured concrete and wood in a unique symphony of fusion architecture created by local star designer Heinz Julen. This luxury ski chalet “The Heinz Julen Loft” was Heinz’s private home where he hosted many rock-star parties. We are honoured that it is now exclusively available for rental through Mountain Exposure.

The Loft was selected by the London Times as one of the 20 coolest chalets in the Alps for a second year in a row this year.

Access is a through a tunnel in the centre of Zermatt and an elevator for which you will have a personal key code. The elevator brings you high up to the terrace of the Omnia Hotel, from where it is a 2 minute walk to the chalet. The village end of the lift delivers you to the heart of Zermatt, in the main street close to the church.

In the main living area there are 2 double bedrooms (with Austrian twin beds) both with en suite bathrooms. The master bedroom is ‘hidden’ on the top floor, which you access through a stairwell behind the breakfast table. It has a king size bed, an en suite bathroom and a private jacuzzi bath.

The sense of space, light and closeness to nature that the Loft provides is unparalleled: there are no barriers between the nature outside and the home space inside – all is fluid and free. On the two sides overlooking the village, the walls consist of floor to ceiling glass, with French windows 6 metres high leading to a large terrace. (There is a white electric exterior curtain that can wrap itself around all that glass if need be). The ceiling is supported by seven columns, while the glass walls have an inset fireplace and three alcoves.

The main loft living area has a suspended and illuminated table which can be raised and lowered from coffee table, to dining table, to ceiling height; the latter creating a large party space.

In one corner you can play on a baby grand Steinway piano, while in another you can sink into a large sofa and gaze simultaneously at the stunning view over the village and at the crackling fireplace set into the glass wall.

Around you: two desks, jack-in-the-box armchairs, a wall of art, and a signature Heinz Julen chandelier. In fact, all the sought-after furniture in the Loft is designed by Heinz. Both levels of the Loft are served by a private lift (elevator).

Amazing, stylish and jaw dropping, the Heinz Julen Loft vies with the Heinz Julen Penthouse for the prize of Zermatt’s most original property!

This is an exceptional property that complements one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The use of light and space make this home a one of a kind vacation experience. We loved the unique details and clean lines of the luxury mountain home. It truly made our experience in Zermatt unforgettable.

We had a wonderful time and were very impressed with the level of service! Sara and John are such professionals, the food was exceptional and the service made it feel like the most luxurious experience ever. This will be a tremendously difficult experience to replicate. Konstantinos did a phenomenal job! He is so friendly, responsive and made sure everything we wanted happened. All of the plans he organized were seamless. Spot ! On !

The HJ Loft is very interesting, very special, one of a kind. Very enjoyable. The catering: food presentation, quality of meal and wine was terrific! Better than any fine restaurant.

The catering was outstanding. Joe was a super chef! He learned about family favorites and incorporated them info his menus! Truly a great guy. The attitude of the whole team was impressive. People were all neat and professional. Miranda was super. A real can-do attitude and hard working. We loved her! It was awesome. We will definitely consider Mountain Exposure again in the future. The champagne and wine selections were top notch! We were extremely pleased.

Excellent team! Professionally groomed all the time. Konstantinos is an excellent manager, always attentive and very responsive. Nothing is too difficult for him.

An amazing family holiday, the service team were amazing, so friendly and professional.

Beautiful architecture and furnishings with excellent views and special accommodation. Max was a star, all meals were sumptuous and well presented. The best thing about the team was Maria (our host) and Max (our chef).  They were a pleasure to have and made our stay thoroughly enjoyable
