Whymper Residence / Zermatt
Living Area: 315 m2
Named after Edward Whymper, the first Alpinist to reach the summit of the Matterhorn, this top luxury chalet is the perfect holiday home. The third floor apartment is absolutely vast with 315m2 of space and perfectly situated in what is quite simply the best location in Zermatt: in the heart of the village, next to the ice skating rinks (tennis courts in the summer), 1 minute away from the main shopping centre and 2 minutes away from the Gornergrat mountain railway. It of course has perfect Matterhorn views.
Guests staying in the Whymper have free access via a short tunnel to the Schweizerhof hotel's indoor swimming pool and extensive spa facilities.* The Whymper Residence has a very stylish entrance and lift access to all floors. The apartment has four double bedrooms and five separate bathrooms. The main and generous living area is comprised of three zones: the sitting room with its fireplace, a dining area with an adjoining open plan kitchen, and a study/TV room which can be closed off.
All these areas are sunny and south-facing with spacious balconies and fabulous views. The master bedroom has a double bed, bay windows, a walk-in wardrobe with a desk, and an en-suite bathroom with bath-tub, WC and two sinks. Next to it are two twin bedrooms with big balconies. There is another bathroom with a bath-tub, two sinks, and WC.
Down the passage you will find a utility room with a shower, and also a washing machine and dryer. Around the corner, leading off the hall, is the fourth bedroom, also with twin beds. (Please note that all our twins are of the zip and lock variety so that they can be made up as doubles).
This bedroom has its own spacious en-suite bathroom with a shower, two sinks, and WC. There is a further guest bathroom with shower/WC in the passage leading to the study/TV room. The open-plan designer kitchen has every accessory you could possibly need, and a convivial breakfast bar. In summary: the most perfect combination of location, style and space.
* Swimming pool and wellness are available during peak seasons only, from approximately mid-December to mid-April, and mid-June to mid-September.

LUXURY SKI HOLIDAYS IN ZERMATT
From the moment you step off your Swiss-red train, catching sight of the cobbled streets and horses with sleighs patiently waiting for their rides, you know you are in a special place. Don't miss to stay in one of our exclusive luxury ski chalets in Zermatt, catered or self-catered with swimming pool, sauna and hot tub.
Silence is what strikes everybody most often. There are no cars in Zermatt! This immediately creates a welcoming atmosphere. The air is fresh and Alpine in Fairytale-like Zermatt. But more than this, you immediately feel a part of the village - it draws you in. Zermatt is probably the most romantic of all ski resorts.
Everyone is on foot, locals and visitors alike. The main street bustles happily with pedestrians. There are no impersonal tour buses belching out noise, fumes, and package tourists. Zermatt is no auto through-route, the train stops here. Every walk on from here is on foot or ski. For more than a century guests come here because they love the mountains. Walking through the cobbled paths of town, between the ancient sunburnt barns and chalets, catching the very first glimpse of iconic Matterhorn - this is the moment you know you have come to the right place. Zermatt, under the shadow of the Matterhorn, is one of Europe's best ski areas. Welcome to Switzerland's chocolate box ski resort Zermatt!
SKIING IN ZERMATT
Linked to Cervinia, just over the border in Italy, Zermatt offers 360 kilometres of pistes. Despite 52 lifts, there is often a bit of a queue to get up the mountain in the morning. Once there you will be spoiled for choice whatever your ability. Throw in a world class terrain park and pipe and you realize Zermatt is truly a top resort. Off the piste, Zermatt is traditional, slightly snobby and expensive. Nightlife is also very good. And: Zermatt is the Swiss Alpine village with the greatest variety of culinary experiences. The choice is huge: from traditional dishes to trendy creations to Michelin-starred establishments.
