Why Choose Zermatt for a Luxury Ski Holiday?
Known for its striking scenery, mighty Matterhorn mountain and exclusive accommodation, a luxury ski holiday to Zermatt promises to enchant. The highest resort in Europe, rising above 4,000 metres, boasting over 14 glaciers, 38 peaks and 200km of pistes, the skiing and snowboarding opportunities here are hard to beat, while it is also linked by lift and piste to Cervinia in Italy, providing another 160km of pistes to enjoy. If you're an experienced skier, join an expert mountain guide for challenging off-piste skiing, or take a once-in-a-lifetime heli-skiing trip to access some incredible, hard-to-reach terrain - including the Monte Rosa, the Aschorn, and the Alphubeljoch.
The charming, car-free resort also offers plenty to do beyond the slopes, with a variety of designer shops, cosy cafés, Michelin-starred restaurants, elegant champagne bars and exclusive nightclubs to enjoy.
Why Choose A Chalet and What Chalets Are Available in Zermatt?
Offering a wealth of space and privacy on your luxury ski holiday, choose from a selection of over 20 chalets and apartments in iconic Zermatt. Oozing sophistication and luxury - whether in a traditional alpine or more modern style - the properties range from one-bedroom retreats for two, to a ten-bedroom hideaway and a 24-bedroom residence that combines eight luxury apartments. As well as large lounges, dining areas and inviting bedrooms, facilities in select chalets include huge kitchens, indoor swimming pools, terraces with hot tubs, spa rooms, saunas, hammams, private gyms, cinema screens and even ski and boot rooms.
Many luxury ski homes are offered on a catered or self-catered basis, giving you the choice to do your own thing or to sit back and let the professional, friendly staff take care of your every need - from a housekeeping team to a ski instructor to a private chef. In-chalet massages, party planners and more can also be arranged.
Our featured property in the area, Chalet Zermatt Peak is a flawlessly designed, private chalet set over six floors. It features five stunning suites, an open-plan, glass-roofed living and dining area, library and ESPA spa facility, complete with an impressive indoor-outdoor Jacuzzi. The fully inclusive stay here includes a full-time team of staff comprising a chalet manager and concierge, service staff, housekeeping and private gourmet chef, who will create a complimentary, personalised a la carte menu for breakfast, afternoon tea and a five-course fine dining dinner. As well as all food, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are included - premium labels can be arranged for an additional fee.
Not a Skier?
While the skiing is incredible, Zermatt offers plenty of other options if that's not your thing. Embrace the snow-covered slopes with the various other winter activities on offer - including snowshoeing, sledding, clay pigeon shooting, curling, ice skating, and paragliding. If relaxation is more your style, choose a luxury chalet with its own swimming pool, spa facilities and alfresco hot tub, or enjoy quality family time over a chef-prepared dinner in your mountain-view dining room.
More than just a winter destination, Zermatt boasts an abundance of activities in the summertime, inviting you experience a different side to the resort as you breathe in the restorative mountain air. Climb the iconic Matterhorn or one of the other stunning peaks with a mountain guide, or enjoy rock climbing, hiking and golf. Due to the height of the resort, you can even ski during summer, making the most of the 21km of pistes that await at the 3,800m-high Theodul glacier.
