11/02/2016Arriving into Zermatt by train is beautiful and we would recommend this to be the most relaxing and enjoyable way to get there, however being a few hours’ from Geneva, we would recommend spending more than a weekend there.
Zermatt’s location beneath the Matterhorn makes it an iconic and stunning resort to ski. Being a car free resort adds to it’s charm and gives it a real alpine feel.
This charming 10 bedroom chalet is ideal for large groups or families. The alpine and timber décor provides a relaxed, homely atmosphere where you can sit back and enjoy the views of the Matterhorn.
I loved how informal and comfortable this chalet was and the service was also fantastic.
QT Tip: Make sure you book the Michelin restaurants on the pistes in advance for lunch in high season!
