Chez Nous - Mischabel
Apartment | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
The Chez Nous apartments (Mischabel and Le Petit) are in a building called Haus Maoli that is just a 5 minute walk from the centre of Zermatt and both apartments have stunning views straight out on to the majestic Matterhorn.
The Mischabel is a split level apartment on the second floor that can sleep 6 people. However the master bedroom can also be arranged as a family room (the sitting area has a day bed that converts in to a full sized double bed) which means it could sleep 8 people.
The apartment is fully equipped with all the essentials including wifi, a coffee machine, hairdryers and packs of cards and a home made cake will be there to greet you when you arrive. The large open-plan kitchen/living-room leads on to a full-width, south-facing balcony looking directly at the Matterhorn and also has a 55" home cinema system (complete with all UK channels and Apple TV) - you can have breakfast gazing out at the mountain and, after a hard day on the mountains, get cosy by the fire drinking a glass of wine and watching a film in the evenings.
The only practical point to bear in mind is that direct access to the building from street level is down 3 flights of stairs which might make it tricky for very young children. However once their luggage is installed most guests then use the shortcut to the village via a path across the field in front of the house.
Zermatt has so much to offer all year round: skiing, snowboarding, hiking, paragliding, climbing or simply ambling to meet family and friends at one of the many mountain restaurants (the best that you will find in the Alps). If you have not been here before you will not be disappointed.

The Swiss Alps region
The village of Zermatt lies in the Valais region of southern Switzerland just on the border with Italy. Tucked away at the end of the valley with the Matterhorn presiding over it, this is one of the prettiest and most iconic villages in the Alps.
The history of Zermatt is steeped in the history of the early alpinists who were lured here by the concentration of peaks that surround the area and most of all by the Matterhorn. The story, and tragedy, of the first ascent in 1865 has become the stuff of mountaineering legend and the mountain continues to call out to climbers from all over the world.
However, the village has been transformed since those early days: then a small farming community struggled to eke out an existence during the long, hard winters; now Zermatt is a world-class destination for skiers, snowboarders, hikers and anyone who wants to enjoy the extraordinary panorama and experience of being in the mountains.
Zermatt deserves its reputation as one of the world's best mountain resorts - there is a magical quality to it all year round.
The Klein Matterhorn cable car is the highest cable car in Europe (3,883m at the summit) and on a clear day gives you simply breathtaking views out towards Mont Blanc and its surrounding peaks. Alternatively start your day on the Gornergrat railway which originally opened in 1898 and is the second highest railway in Europe (after the Jungfrau) - a great feat of Swiss engineering. From the top of Gornergrat you get a sweeping panorama of 29 "four thousanders" (mountains over 4,000m) including the Monte Rosa which is the highest mountain in Switzerland.
In the winter your lift pass covers the Zermatt and Cervinia and includes some 360km of marked runs but if that isn't enough you can also ice skate, sledge, hike, snow shoe, try curling or simply swim and relax in one of the village hotel's wonderful wellness areas.
In the summer there is glorious hiking, climbing, a fun park for the children, cycling, tennis, squash, paragliding and plenty of places to have a picnic by a lake.
At any time of year Zermatt has something to offer and its mountain restaurants are second to none in the Alps so the gourmet will not be disappointed either.

Mischabel Apartment has it all. Great quiet location but easy access to the town and all ski lifts plus fantastic views of the Matterhorn. The owners, Lizzie and Angus, go the extra mile to make you feel welcome in their beautifully decorated apartment which is spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped. The Apple TV/Music System is exceptional and a big hit with our high tech off spring!
We have been skiing in Zermatt for 14 years and stayed in various Hotels and Apartments. We would not hesitate to recommend Mischabel Apartment as it is perfect for a family or a group of friends and we will definitely return as it exceeded our expectations.
Thank you for taking the time to review the apartment. It was so nice to see you all enjoying The Mischabel (after our email exchanges about it) and appreciating what we have tried to create here. I could sense the relief when they saw the TV and knew that they could watch the rugby in HD and in comfort!
I hope that we will be able to welcome you back next season but in the meantime enjoy the spring weather that seems to have arrived in the UK and very best wishes to you all, Lizzie and Angus

Thank you so much for taking the time to do that Kathleen - for some reason I have only just seen this so sorry that I have not replied sooner.
I am so glad that you all had a happy trip to Zermatt and felt at home in the apartment - it is so nice to see families enjoying the space to be together in and I hope the girls are settled back in Neufchatel. It would be lovely to welcome you again if you are Zermatt-bound next season but in the meantime very best wishes to you all.

Thank you Tim - it was so nice to see you all enjoying the space and I know that Angus was delighted to find a kindred "audiophile" spirit who appreciated the media system he has put in.

Mischabel is very convenient, fully equipped quality apartment in a good location. Owners are nice, reliable, decent people (extremely important!). Lizzie was very accommodating and helpful with various reservations. I highly recommend this place.
