Apartment Orgon / Zermatt
Chalet Orgon is a very stylish and light duplex apartment furnished by Heinz Julen. It is located on the top two floors of a five storey airy wooden building with a glass greenhouse atrium and elevator, 5 minutes from the town centre and 5 minutes from the Matterhorn Express lift station.
Featuring warm Scandinavian wood throughout and top-notch specification; after the entrance hall you come into the main living space with a sitting area on the left and the open plan kitchen on the right. The sitting room features a vast red sofa, a wood burning fireplace, a B&O sound system and a multitude of windows streaming sunshine. There is also a WC and a utility room with washing machine and dryer on this floor.
Next to the Heinz Julen dining table and behind the breakfast bar is a professional spec kitchen with both induction and gas rings, a teppanyaki griddle, and a large double door American style fridge with ice-maker.
A wooden staircase (with no bannister) leads to the top floor, which is where the three bedrooms are situated, together with two bathrooms and a separate toilet. The very generous and luminous master bedroom has a double bed, a large walk-in wardrobe, and a dressing table with a sink. The second bedroom has two big wooden framed twin beds (which can be pushed together at a pinch) and generous wardrobe space, while the third bedroom has separate twin beds on either side of the room. All bedrooms have their own TV.
There is a bathroom with a bath-tub, bidet and two sinks; the other bathroom is a big rainfall shower. The separate and uniquely styled WC is next to these two. This floor has sloping wooden ceilings throughout, while the main floor has a very long and wide wooden balcony with mountain views toward the Gornergrat ski area. All in all, Chalet Orgon is a very smart yet warm apartment in a great location. It's a feel good place.

From the moment you step off your Swiss-red train, and catch sight of the cobbled streets and horses with sleighs patiently waiting for their rides, you know you are in a special place. The most romantic of all resorts. What strikes everybody most often is the silence. There are no cars in Zermatt. This immediately creates a welcoming atmosphere. The air is fresh and alpine. But more than this, you immediately feel a part of the village.
It draws you in. Most 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. All journeys on from here are on foot or ski. Everyone is here because they love mountains. Walking through the cobbled paths of town, between the ancient sunburnt barns and chalets, you catch your first glimpse of the Matterhorn and know you have come to the right place. Welcome to Zermatt... Zermatt, under the shadow of the Matterhorn, is one of Europe's best ski areas.
Linked to Cervinia, just over the border in Italy, Zermatt offers over 250km of pistes. Despite 71 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.
