Self-Catered Apartment

With 195sqm the spacious luxury chalet apartment Schipfa in Zermatt is spread over 2 floors. Offered on a self-catered basis the chalet has a traditional style adorned with wood. 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.

It is bathed in sunshine and light with its extensive windows throughout and radiates a warm welcoming atmosphere. 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 WC 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 bathtub, shower and WC; the other with a shower, WC and washing machine. The sauna is also located on this floor.

We offer the most exclusive and luxurious ski chalets in Zermatt, the best catered or self-catered chalets with swimming pool, sauna, steam room/hammam and hot tub.



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.

The most romantic of all ski resorts. 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.

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. 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!



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.

Resort Elevation: 1620m | Matterhorn Glacier Ride: 3820m | Vertical drop: 2200m | Pistes: 360km | Runs: 149 | Longest Run: 25km | Beginners: 35 | Intermediates: 83 | Advanced: 31 | Lifts: 52 | Gondolas: 18 | Chair lifts: 21 | Drag lifts: 15 | Cable cars: 7 | Cross-country-skiing: 60km | Terrain parks: 1 | Halfpipes: 1
